Iva Lazarova Wins MPN Poker Tour Sunny Beach Main Event
ISLE OF MAN – Iva Lazarova defeated a 320-entry field at the weekend to be crowned champion of MPNPT Sunny Beach.

The 24-year-old professional poker player took home €26,900 following a series of deals between the last four players. Lazarova’s victory was the culmination of an insane rollercoaster of a tournament, which saw her all in for half a big blind on the bubble before recovering to claim the coveted MPNPT trophy and the biggest win of her career so far.

Dmitri Fomitsa (€20,100) busted out in third place, while Berislav Yosifov (€24,300) finished a creditable second to Lazarova, who became the first ever female MPNPT champion. 

Beyond the Main Event, the MPNPT Platinum Poker Cup was taken down by Emil Kunev for €4,775 in a three-way chop, while the MPNPT Doubles event was won by Mati Pirn and Maili Tannbaum, who took home €1,216 between them. The MPNPT Turbo Rebuy was won by Joel Holmberg for €2,706.
