EPT Malta: Urbanovich leading Stud final; Big numbers in the Turbo Deepstack

There's just seven players left in the €1k EPT Limit Stud Championships and leading the way? Dzmitry Urbanovich. The Polish player has already won three events at the EPT Malta Festival and is looking to add a fourth. He also has another motive - the three victories have put him in the lead for the Player of the Year award ahead of Davidi Kitai.
