And with Andrey Shatilov’s victory here in Punta Cana, that completes season 2 of the GSOP Live tour. We’ve seen football at Old Trafford in Manchester, been to the Black Sea in Thessaloniki, had a record breaking 500 runners in Prague, skied in Salzburg and finally made it to the tropical paradise here in the Dominican Republic.
Shatilov bought in through his Red Kings account, he regularly plays a mixture of heads up and 6-max SNG’s at the $500 level, as well as some tournaments. He finished 21st in the GSOP Live in Malta in Season 1 and is a regular on the tour though this is his biggest ever live result. Incidentally, Shatilov and Zoltan Szabo were the two biggest stacks going into today’s final and managed to successfully navigate their way to heads up.
So what next for the GSOP Live, well we’ll be back with a brand new season starting after the summer with some choice new locations yet to be announced. No doubt it’ll be just as exciting as this year, so get online and get qualifying and maybe next year you could be standing where Andrey Shatilov is!
