Asan Umarov goes in to the history books as the first ever EPT Main Event finalist from Kazakhstan.
He is also the last Spin & Go qualifier left in the tournament after winning his €9k prize package in PokerStars’ special €10 Spin & Go promotion. There were 120 players who won their trip to Monaco in the promotion.
Umarov works for the Kazakh sports news site SportPokerKz and lives in Almaty. Prior to this Grand Final, Umarov only had two live cashes to his name, totalling $4,155 – including fifth in the $300 Kazakhstan Poker Cup in his home city for $2,400.
