2015 WSOP Europe Winner

2015 WSOPE Winners

Event #1
Makarios Avramidis
Won: €105,000
Event #1: Six-Handed No-Limit Hold’em
In the interview after the victory, Avramidis revealed that poker was his big passion and that he prefers to listen to his gut feeling. Many previous attempts ended with "bad luck," but that all changed this evening in his first-ever WSOP event. Avramidis began playing cards for sweets as a young kid and a couple decades later, he's now the latest entry in the winners list of the most prestigious poker tournament circuit.

Event #2
Dietrich Fast
Won: €157,749
Event #2: The Oktoberfest No-Limit Hold’em
Fast came back today as the 5th stack of the final table with 31 big blinds and managed to navigate this final table to the end. John Gale finished runner up. He started the final table as the chipleader with 121 big blinds. It took almost 12 hours to through this final table that started at a rather slow pace with every player being very focused on taking home the prestigious bracelet and the €157,749 prize money for first place.

Event #3
Richard Gryko
Won: €126,345
Event #3: Eight-Handed Pot-Limit Omaha

Gryko ultimately emerged victorious to scoop his first WSOP gold bracelet and €126,345 for his efforts while Leah jumped straight into the Mixed Game (Event #5).

Event #5: Mixed Event (8-game) (Tables are 6-Handed)
