Vladas Tamasauskas is Lithuania’s top poker player according to the GPI National rankings. He is ranked 56th in the world and 3rd in his country’s All-Time Money List.

Vladas Tamasauskas’s career began in 2015. His first table finish came in 2016. It was also his first win, claiming the UK And Ireland Poker Tour Main Event at the European Poker Tour Dublin. He secured his first six-figure cash of $196,109 in only his third recorded event. Tamasauskas followed this up up with a runner up finish in December 2016, at the Eureka Main Event of the European Poker Tour Prague with a heftier cash of $ 201,794. The Lithuanian would grind it out at the World Series of Poker, World Poker and European Poker Tours with decent runs and wins at side events.

In 2022, Vladas Tamasauskas made his best showing at a WSOP event, finishing 4th at the World Series of Poker Europe Rozvadov Main Bracelet Event. He also banked his best career live cash to date of $ 451,112. Tamasauskas though would still fly under the poker radar until 2023.

In 2023, Vladas Tamasauskas made his foray in the higher stakes tournaments with a confidence-boosting 3rd place finish at the High Roller Event of the European Poker Tour (EPT) Barcelona. He nearly equalled his best cash, binking the tournament for $ 439,650. This would provide momentum for his spectacular debut at the September 2023 PokerGO Poker Masters Las Vegas. The Lithuanian announced his arrival at the high roller scene making all three final tables of the first three events, winning twice. Tamasauskas took down the first and third events in the $10,100 No Limit Hold’em competitions besting the more seasoned pros. He finished a decent 6th place in Event No.2. for a total payday of more than $500,000. The Lithuanian closed out 2023 with another title at Event No,19 of the 2023 Aria High Roller Series, Las Vegas.

Tamasauskas’ venture into the high stakes scene continued in 2024 with deep runs at the European Poker Tour High Roller, Asian Poker Tour Taipei Single Day High Roller  and the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series Jeju 8-Handed & 8-Handed Silver Events. Tamasauskas would amass nearly a quarter of a million in prize money.

The Lithuanian is working his way to be a household name in the high roller scene, but his tournament grind has already brought him to a total live cash of o $ 2,932,093.
