On a short-lived final day of just two and a half hours, a winner has been crowned in EPT Online 06: $10,300 NLHE [8-Max, High Roller] and it was Mikita "fish2013" Badziakouski who became the latest champion of the 2020 PokerStars European Poker Tour (EPT) Online after he cut a deal with Matthias "iambest2" Eibinger heads-up.

The event featured a field of 109 entries and the top 13 finishers earned a portion of the $1,090,000 prize pool with Badziakouski and Eibinger taking home near identical amounts of $222,453 and $221,564.

For most of the final table, it was all about Eibinger, who never surrendered the lead until the heads-up deal was cut. Both then agreed to get their chips in preflop no matter what and Badziakouski's prediction of "ok next hand flip book and then keep going till i bust you" turned out to be true.

Christian "WATnlos" Rudolph, EPT Online 07: $2,100 NLHE [8-Max] champion Daniel "SmilleThHero" Smiljkovic, Mike "SirWatts" Watson, Bert "girafganger7" Stevens, Timothy "Tim0thee" Adams, and Conor "1_conor_b_1" Beresford also made the final table.

Dzmitry Urbanovich

It wasn't a big field, but it certainly was a tough one populating the seats of EPT Online 09: $5,200 8-Game [High Roller]. A field of 51 entries has come down to just five remaining grinders, and as expected, some mixed-game legends are among the competitors.

Atop the counts: Dzmitry "Colisea" Urbanovich, the young all-arounder who has racked up an impressive handful of titles in various formats on PokerStars after first making himself known as a no-limit high-roller participant.

Then, there's Jens "Fresh_oO_D" Lakemeier, who grabbed a mixed-game bracelet at the 2017 WSOP and has been a regular name at the end of big PokerStars tournaments as well.

In third, anonymous cash crusher "RaulGonzalez," who can often be found playing the highest-stake mixed games running on the site.

Finally, World Championship of Online Poker legend Denis "aDrENalin710" Strebkov and Christian "Crisper" Pereira round it out as the short stacks.
