The PokerStars Championship in Barcelona looks to have welcomed all the professionals with open hands.
It is not just the professional poker players who have been winning events at the Championship, the professional sportspersons and DJs have also earned a lot of money playing at the final tables of some of the main events this year. One such man who has made it big in the music industry by winning a Grammy award has made it huge at the final table of this poker tournament. He has the third place at the €2,150 buy-in turbo event and by virtue of this win, he took home €44,000. This man is none other than popular DJ Zedd whose real name is Anton Zaslavski.
DJ Zedd finished in the 3rd place in the event that saw a total of 226 entries. He just fell two places short of the title and the first-place prize money of €92,700 was bagged by Finnish poker star Pasi Sormunen. The second place also was won by a Finnish player Jorma Nuutinen and the prize money that was claimed was €62,400.
There are many poker players who acknowledge that DJ Zedd is a world class poker player and deserves all the success that he has got in the PokerStars Championship in Barcelona. By impressing one and all, DJ Zedd was given a special invitation by the PokerStars to take part in the €5,300 buy-in Main Event. The 27-year-old music star accepted this offer and got his hands laid on his career’s first live cash in the side section of the event. He could not get his way through to the money table.
Zaslavski said that he was very much excited to be playing at the poker tables. He was enjoying the experience of the table atmosphere and was happy to be competing with the best poker players in the world.
