€5,300 EPT Main Event

Seat 3: Armin Rezaei, 25, Leibnitz, Austria – 3,765,000

Armin Rezaei

Armin Rezaei is the youngest player on the final table. The 25-year-old has followed in the footsteps of his older brother Daniel and turned poker pro. In Austria’s all-time money list, Armin trails #8-ranked Daniel by nearly a million. But that might soon change.

A victory in the EPT Prague Main Event would push Armin ahead of his brother. While there’s still a long way to the pinnacle, Rezaei has already clinched his second live tournament six-figure prize. The first came in 2018 when he finished second in the Concord Million event in Vienna (€144,740).

Rezaei is now guaranteed to top that prize and pick up the biggest pay check of his career. He will add a significant chunk to his $337,893 winnings reported by the Hendon Mob and break the $500,000-mark at minimum. This marks the second time Rezaei has survived the EPT Main Event bubble; his first in-the-money experience was at EPT Barcelona 2019, where he finished in 43rd place.
