Vladimir Geshkenbein has been crowned EPT Snowfest champion. The Swiss based Russian beat long time chip leader Kevin Vandermissen heads up to pocket the €390,000 first prize.
Geshkenbein went into the final table fourth out of eight but put his super aggressive style to effective use throughout what was a somewhat fractious final table. The Russian even took to the Twittersphere to try and needle his Belgian opponent Tweeting “Up to two mil.. Valuetowned a fat Belgium guy.”The trash talking eventually had the desired effect as the swaggering Geshkenbein sealed the title with two-pair, aces and nines against Vandermissen's pair of kings. Geshkenbein, who won the 2009 PKR Heads Up Grand Slam had this to say after the win, “I am very happy. It’s awesome. This was my biggest event … I’d have been happy to come second. But I always thought I could win it … you don’t sit down at the poker table if you don’t think you canwin.” is the next event on the calendar, starting on 5 April.
