Polish MTT crusher Dzmitry Urbanovich is the newest poker pro on the partypoker team.
Urbanovich has been one of the most successful players on the live tournament circuit over the last few years with over $5m in live tournament earnings since 2013.
partypoker announced the signing earlier today and Urbanovich will join a team that already includes poker pros Mike Sexton, Johnny Lodden, Sam Trickett, Natalia Breviglieri and Tony Dunst.
Urbanovich #1 on All-Time Polish List
Dzmitry Urbanovich has been so successful over the last few years that he’s quickly ascended to the top of the all-time money earners leaderboard for Poland.
“I can’t wait to join the partypoker team,” he said.
“I have already played partypoker Million Sochi and MILLIONS and absolutely loved the events. There are so many great partypoker LIVE events that I’ll struggle to fit them all in. I am also planning my schedule around the $20,000,000 Powerfest that starts on May 7th, which I am sure will be a great success.”
Urbanovich is perhaps best known for his spectacular EPT Malta in 2015 where he won an astounding four tournaments including a €25k Super High Roller for €572,300.
The Polish pro went on to rightfully win EPT Player of the Year in 2015.
Last year Urbanovich added to this tournament success by taking down EPT Dublin for €561,900.
Unafraid to Take Risks
Urbanovich isn’t afraid to mix it up away from the tables and he was actually the first player to make a big 200-1 bracelet bet against Vanessa Selbst last year.
Urbanovich put up $10,000 on winning three bracelets at the 2016 WSOP but ultimately fell short cashing three times but missing out on a bracelet.
That bet paved the way for the even bigger Jason Mercier bet that got a considerable amount of attention last summer.
Urbanovich hasn’t said yet whether he’ll fire again on bracelet bets this summer but he’s going to be busy regardless over the next few months.
“It is a pleasure to have Dzmitry join the partypoker team as a sponsored pro,” said managing director of partypoker Tom Waters.
“I have watched his progress over the years and he is a great guy with some extremely impressive cashes Dzmitry is very positive about the game and is a perfect fit for partypoker. I look forward to seeing Dzmitry travel the partypoker LIVE circuit this year.”
