BoM2018Urbonas3

31-year-old poker professional Mantas Urbonas is largely an online player but, displaying excellent taste, when he plays live it is mostly on the MPNPT tour. His previous results are impeccable, with a third-place Main Event finish at MPNPT Tallinn in 2016 and a 12th-place finish the following year, as well as numerous MPNPT side event final table appearances.

As always, he has greatly enjoyed this MPNPT stop – although he laments that he wasn’t able to come to all the parties as he was too busy playing. Asked what he intends to do with the money if he wins today, he paused for a few moments and glanced at his fiancé at the rail before answering with a smile, “Let’s say I will invest in poker.”
