Looks like Andrey Pateychuk is one of the few people in poker who has had a good post-Black Friday 2011.
In July, the Russian took 15th at the WSOP Main Event. In October, he won the EPT San Remo. And now, he’s defeated a record field to capture the WPT Prague.
For the win, Pateychuk banks €468,200 ($630k). That gives him over $2M in earnings the past five months.
More impressively, Pateychuk captures poker’s ever elusive Double TroubleTM (an NAPT/EPT and WPT title in the same year). He’s now two-thirds of the way to completing poker’s fictitious Triple Crown.
Pateychuk defeated Adria Balaguer ($320,381) heads-up for the title.
