Saturday marked the fifth 2015 win for American Byron Kaverman in the European Poker Tour (EPT). Kaverman dominated 210 entrants in the EPT Season 12 Malta €10,300 High Roller for €430,800. Earlier this year, he finished ninth in the €10,200 Single-Day High Roller and fifth in the €25,750 High Roller.
This career year for Kaverman has upped his lifetime live-tournament earnings to nearly $3 million. This summer, he also won his first World Series of Poker (WSOP) gold bracelet and $657,351 when he claimed the $10,000 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold’em Championship event title.
On the last day of the Malta tournament, the 19 remaining players were narrowed down to a final table of eight. Kevin MacPhee, who won the 2015 WSOP Europe Main Event, was the first to go. Another American, Bryn Kenney, was knocked out when his K♢, J♤ fell to Ihar Soike’s A♡, K♤. Next, Roberto Romanello’s 6♢, 6♤ didn’t measure up to Mukul Pahuja’s A♤, 10♤.
The final four at the table were made up of two players from the United States and, surprisingly, two from Belarus (Soike and Ikalai Vaskaboinikau).
The Belarussians didn’t measure up and Vaskaboinikau and Soike bowed out in third and fourth, respectively
When the Americans went head to head, Kaverman pulled Pahuja all-in with a pair versus an ace-high.
The EPT season 12 will continue in Prague starting on Dec. 5.
