After winning a WSOP gold bracelet and two Aria High Roller events at the beginning of 2015, it was time for poker player Byron Kaverman to top the pack of an EPT tournament. And he did it earlier night in a grand manner. The player came out as the winner in the EPT Malta (Season 12) €10300 High Roller to collect a 1st place prize of €430800 as well as the tournament trophy.
The event drew in a total of two-hundred-ten entries who made a prize pool of €2037000. The top thirty-one places were paid. It took 3 days of play before the name of the champ was declared. The final day started with nineteen players and Mukul Pahuja holding the most of the chips. In fact, he held the lead for the most part of the day.
It was Mukul Pahuja whom Byron Kaverman had to face heads-up. The game started with Pahuja holding almost 4 times more chips compared to the eventual winner. However, Kaverman took the lead at a very early stage and did not give his opponent the chance to recover until the very end.
The day’s final hand and the event as a whole passed off in Level 28. Kaverman proceeded all in with pocket fives and Pahuja addressed with [Ax][4x]. Nothing which would serve Pahuja beat his opponent’s duo appeared on the table and he had to manage with the runner-up spot as well as an amount of €290100.
