Poker Jason Glazer 05.02.2024

The Main Event concluded on Friday and the High Roller on Saturday but the excitement roared along on the final day of the action-packed 2024 OlyBet Showdown Vilnius Ace Breaker at Olympic Casino Lietuva on Sunday.

Justinas Adomauskas and Sarunas Leonavicius won the final two trophies for the home country of Lithuania to wrap up the Vilnius Ace Breaker in style.

Check out the results from the final day of the OlyBet Showdown Vilnius Ace Breaker:

Justinas Adomauskas Wins €350 NLH OlyBet Special

The two-day Event #24: €350 NLH OlyBet Special attracted 73 entries on its opening day. Three more players got into the mix before late registration was closed on Day 2 to grow the field to 76 entries for a €22,982 prize pool.

A total of 27 players battled on the final day with nine getting paid. The action moved along at a fast and furious pace with the nine-player final table reached with players after Ant Gokcek hit the rail in 10th place.

The final table itself took less than an hour and Adomauskas had more than half the chips in play with seven players remaining. He maintained his lead as players hit the rail but his lead was marginal by the time he was heads-up with Vytautas Kacerauskas.

The duo was heads-up in a trophy event during the 2023 Olympic Spring Cup when Admoauskas denied Kacerauskas his first trophy in a Lithuanian event. Kacerauskas nearly got his revenge but the poker gods had something else to say.

Kacerauskas shared with us after the event that he got his stack committed with nines against Adomauskas’s fours. A four spiked the flop and Kacerauskas was a bridesmaid again after a brutal bad beat that ultimately decided the winner and settled for the runner-up place prize of €4,550. Meanwhile, Adomauskas won another trophy in Vilnius along with the €6,722 top prize.

Eligijus Asmena, who won two side events during the early part of the festival was heads-up against Sarunas Leonavicius for the title.

Asmena tried his best to earn the hattrick, but Leonavicius had something else in mind. It was a 90-minute intense heads-up battle, but Leonavicius collected the big progressive bounty and the trophy at the end while both the final players collected €2,085 from the prize pool.
