EPT News: Former PokerStars Manager Wins Eureka ME, Pardo Wins Super High Roller

Eureka Main Event Cyprus 2023 winner Ankit Ahuja

The name of the champion of one of the most massive tournaments of the EPT Cyprus, namely $1,100 NLH Eureka Main Event, has become known. It is the player from India Ankit Ahuja. In heads-up, he beat day four chip leader Eduard Norel of Romania. The first place prize was $362,365. Currently, Ahuja has more than $2.1M in prize money won in live tournaments. Not bad for a former PokerStars manager.

Not long ago, the player decided to seriously work on his leaks in the game and his psychology, and this almost immediately began to give good results. First, in Barcelona, in a major serial event, he took fifth place, and now he was able to win the prestigious title at the series in Cyprus. The lucky hand in this tournament for Ahuja was undoubtedly the ace-king: with it he won all the big key hands.

"It used to be a dream when I was learning to play poker or coming up even when I was working with Stars. So yeah, it's a dream come true."

Another winner of the day was the Spaniard Juan Pardo, who won the Super high roller tournament. There were 46 entries in the $50,000 buy-in tournament, and the top 6 players got into prizes. The victory went to Pardo after he defeated his compatriot Vicente Delgado in heads-up. The first place brought the Spaniard not only the honorary trophy spade of the EPT champion, but also $688,560 in prize money.
