Ukrainian poker player Aleksandr Dovzhenko has won the Mediterranean Poker Cup main event which concluded at the five-star Hotel Merit Girne, Crystal Cove, Cyprus over the weekend.

Dovzhenko beat Gutkin Maksim of Russia heads up in the $400,000 guaranteed, $2,500 buy in main event which attracted 153 players from around the Mediterranean, Europe, Russia, Ukraine, and the Middle East.

The final hand of the tournament, with blinds at 10,000/20,000 and an ante of 2,000, saw Gutkin check a flop of 10c 6c 3h and Dovzhenko bet 60,000.
