Slovenian Poker Prodigy Blaž Žerjav Shines at EPT Paris 2024

Slovenian poker maestro Blaž Žerjav delivered an inspiring performance at this year’s EPT Paris, marking his presence with two incredible results. After finishing in the runner-up spot at the record-breaking France Poker Series (FPS) Main Event for €294,530, he then managed to clinch a victory in the €2,200 No Limit Hold’em – Deepstack tournament. Žerjav’s performances serve as an inspiration to both aspiring and established players, demonstrating that success is achievable with hard work and a deep understanding of the game.

The 2024 PokerStars calendar started with an extraordinary event as the EPT Paris hosted the largest-ever France Poker Series (FPS) Main Event. In this record-setting €1,100 FPS Main Event which attracted a remarkable 4,149 participants, Blaž Žerjav first captured the spotlight with his exceptional performance, battling through a massive field to reach the final showdown. Although Mateusz Moolhuizen from the Netherlands ultimately took the title and the €470,830 prize, Žerjav wasn’t too disappointed with the result and it only made him thirstier to make it all the way to the top.

And that achievement came just a few days later, when Blaž Žerjav demonstrated his prowess and resilience in the €2,200 No Limit Hold’em – Deepstack (Event #40). This tournament once again saw him face off against some of the best players from around the globe. In a masterful display of skill and strategy, Žerjav secured himself the title and a €141,680 prize after a heads-up battle against Poland’s Woźniak Mateusz, who took home $95,700. This win added to Žerjav’s growing list of accomplishments and showcased his ability to excel under pressure and adapt to the dynamics of high-stakes poker. Both of these amazing results also put Žerjav 3rd place on the Slovenian All Time Money List.
