Poker Jason Glazer 03.06.2024

The second day of the inaugural OlyBet Showdown Vilnius Jacks of June was a big hit. Three trophy winners were crowned at the luxurious Olympic Casino Vilnius, located in the heart of the majestic Lithuanian capital.

All three trophies remained on home soil, with Arturas Dauksevic, Tautvydas Stravinskas, and Eugenijus Cernius all finishing events with all the chips.

Read on to learn the results of Sunday’s action at the OlyBet Showdown Vilnius Jacks of June.

Another Title for Arturas Dauksevic

Arturas Dauksevic has been making a name for himself in Vilnius. He won two titles in international events in Vilnius in 2022 before shipping the inaugural Vilnius Ace Breaker €1,100 High Roller in early 2023.

He also earned a handful of podium finishes in other events during the past two years, however, Sunday added a bit of icing on the cake as he won his fourth international title in Vilnius after defeating the formidable countrymate Kestutis Jungevicius heads-up to win the €350 Warm-Up Progressive Bounty. Both players collected the €7,290 top prize with Dauksevic coming away with much more thanks to the huge bounty prizes at the end of the event.

The event itself provided approximately €5,000 in extra value for the 143 players that entered thanks to the generous €50,000 guarantee slapped onto this event.
