Poker Jason Glazer 10.06.2024

Sunday brought a bitter-sweet end to the inaugural OlyBet Vilnius Showdown Jacks of June. Some of the drama and suspense were already gone as the trophies for the two most prestigious events stayed home as Ovidijus Berenis won the €555 Main Event trophy for €34,950 on Friday evening before Vytautas Semaska shipped the €1,100 High Roller on Saturday evening for €22,470.

On Sunday, the stakes were high as players vied for the remaining two trophies. Vilnius resident Yauheni Novik put his mark on the festival by winning his first international live poker tournament, as reported by The Hendon Mob. He emerged victorious in the two-day €350 NLH OlyBet Special. Meanwhile, Lithuania’s Kazimieras Ramaska clinched the final trophy in the €250 NLH Wrap-Up.

As the OlyBet Vilnius Showdown Jacks of June concluded, many players were already setting their sights on the next big event. The World Series of Poker Circuit Tallinn is set to return to the Olympic Park Casino from July 19-28, 2024. This highly anticipated event promises gold rings and huge prizes, with France’s Jimmy Dewerdt and Lithuania’s Liutauras Armanavicius already securing their spots into the crown jewel of the festival, the €1 million guaranteed €1,500 Main Event, via a satellite earlier this festival.

Yesterday, four players, including Donatas Pilinkus, Vytautas Kacerauskas, Erikas Eglynas, and Nikodemas Staniukaitis, punched their seats to the WSOP Circuit Tallinn €555 NLH ring event via a €60 qualifier.
