Alexandr Dovzhenko has been crowned the Mediterranean Poker Cup Champion after defeating a 153-runner field at the Hotel Merit Girne in Cyprus.
The burly Ukrainian pocketed the €104,700 first prize after beating Russian Gutkin Maksim heads up. The final hand saw all the chip go into the middle with Maksim in front with top set but needing to dodge Dovzhenko's flush draw. A third club appeared on the river to give the Ukrainian the title and a bumper payday."This is the best tournament I've ever played" said the winner.
