The 23-year-old Russian poker professional defeated a total of 852 participants, won his first EPT main event championship, and received the highest prize of 24.633 million rubles (325,370 US dollars). This victory increased Artur Martirosyan's competition revenue to nearly $1.5 million. He is the sixth Russian player to win the EPT Championship.

"I have always wanted to win the EPT championship. The design of the trophy is so cool." Martirosyan told EPT reporters after reaching the summit.

This is Artur Martirosyan's second championship this year, both of which were won at the same location. In the Sochi casino, just over a month ago, Martirosyan won a 57,750 rubles (762 US dollars) buy-in poker event during the 2021 WPT Russia, with 41,417 US dollars and 228 POY points. With the results of these two championships and another final table, Artur Martirosyan is now ranked seventh in the 2021 POY tournament sponsored by Global Poker. His income in the POY qualifiers has accumulated $416,550 and has accumulated 1,396 points so far.

Artur Martirosyan defeated Vladislav Naumov in the heads-up to win the title.

His A-9 defeated Naumov's A-6 in the pre-flop confrontation and secured the victory. This is the second consecutive time that Naumov has reached the final table in the EPT Sochi Main Event. He has won sixth place in 2020 and $52,336. The native Russian player won US$197,570 and 760 POY points this time. So far this year, Naumov has reached two final tables and currently ranks 27th on the POY leaderboard.

The sixth place, Anton Smirnov, won the runner-up in the preliminary round of no-limit poker at 77,000 rubles (US$1,035) in this series, less than a week later. He finished second in the 559-person game, winning $64,246 and 700 POY points. This time he added another $61,671 and 304 points. These two results are enough to make him jump to 17th place in the overall POY ranking.

Let’s take a look at the final table rankings and POY points.
