Sanremo | 556 players | €2,480,872 prize pool | 1st: Vicky Coren (€476,100)
Team PokerStars Pro Vicky Coren became the first ever two-time EPT Main Event champion in Sanremo, adding €476,100 to the £500,000 she won at EPT London in 2006. That she turned a final table short-stack into the ultimate EPT accolade made her success all the more remarkable. In the final hand, Coren’s Q-J out-flopped runner-up Giacomo Fundaro’s pocket Aces to end the EPT’s ten-year wait for a double winner.
Vienna | 910 players | €4,413,500 prize pool | 1st: Oleksii Khoroshenin (€578,392)
Almost one thousand runners played the EPT Vienna Main Event, where Oleksii Khoroshenin became the tour’s first Ukrainian Champion, winning prize money of €578,392. Chip leader on Day 1A, Khoroshenin navigated his way through a tough final table, eventually beating Anthony Ghamrawi heads-up, with Khoroshenin hitting a flush on the turn against his opponent’s busted straight draw.
Deauville | 671 players | €3,220,800 prize pool | 1st: Sotirios Koutoupas (€614,000)
Sotirios Koutoupas became Greece's first EPT Main Event winner after beating Team PokerStars Pro Eugene Katchalov heads-up to clinch Deauville's €614,000 first prize. Katchalov, who would have earned poker's illusive Triple Crown with victory, trailed Koutoupas throughout a tough final table, and he had to settle for the runner-up spot when a pre-flop shove with A-K couldn't hold against Koutoupas' A-3 in the final hand.
PCA | 1,031 players | $10,070,000 prize pool | 1st: Dominik Panka ($1,423,096)
A huge field of more than 1,000 players took part in the 2014 PCA Main Event in The Bahamas, and it was Poland’s Dominik Panka who took the title for an incredible payday of $1,423,096 (reflecting a three-way deal). It was a big enough win to instantly make Panka the highest-earning player from his country. Mike McDonald came painfully close to becoming the first two-time EPT winner, eventually finishing as runner-up for $1,064,865.
Prague | 1,007 players | €4,883,950 prize pool | 1st: Julian Track (€725,700)
The Czech capital played EPT host for a seventh time in December, 2013, as 1,007 players gathered to create a record Prague field and prize pool. Germany’s Julian Track earned the winner’s cheque and €725,000 following a mammoth 14-hour final table, with Georgios Sotiropoulos finishing second for €700,000 after both players had agreed a two-way deal heads-up. Track, who battled flu throughout the closing stages, notched up the win in what was his first ever live tournament.
London | 604 players | £2,929,400 prize pool | 1st: Robin Ylitalo (£560,980)
The London leg of Season 10 saw Sweden’s Robin Ylitalo overcome 604 players to collect Main Event honours and a £560,980 winner’s cheque. Ylitalo, who final tabled EPT Campione in Season 8, beat Georgios Karakousis heads-up after his A-K held against the PokerStars qualifier’s A-6.
Barcelona | 1,234 players | €5,984,900 prize pool | 1st: Tom Middleton (€924,000)
The opening event of Season 10 of the European Poker Tour saw a huge field of 1,234 players gather for the Main Event, with a massive prize pool of close to €6,000,000 up for grabs. The eventual winner was Tom Middleton from the UK, who had a three-day run as chipleader before he beat pro player Kimmo Kurko heads-up. The end came when Middleton’s pocket fives held against the A-4 of his Finnish opponent.
