EPT Online wraps up

This year has been absolutely incredible for Twitch Poker, there’s no doubt about it. Things got even better over the past couple of weeks as we got to tune in to cards-up coverage from the European Poker Tour (EPT) Online on the PokerStars channel.

The amazing series wrapped up last night with the $5,200 Main Event final table–an action-packed affair that saw Sweden’s “WhatIfGod” defeat high roller legend Timothy Adams heads-up to win the $1.02 million first-place prize.

It could have been different, of course. For example, had Jon “apestyles” Van Fleet won this enormous flip:

Or if this hand had gone differently for Adams:

We could have seen David Yan take it down if he’d got this gigantic bluff through:

But ultimately “WhatIfGod” got the job done.

Check out our full recap of the $5K Main Event here.
