* Serbian wins Sunday Million
* Kevin Martin cashes in
Welp, that's it, folks. It seems like yesterday we were getting traipsing all over Europe behind John Duthie in the first season of the European Poker Tour. Thirteen seasons ago, the idea Duthie came up with in the bathtub turned into a worldwide sensation.
As I type now, the final EPT Main Event is three-handed in Prague, and when it's finished, so too will be the EPT. We all owe Duthie a great many thanks.
Beginning next month, all of PokerStars tours will start running under the PokerStars Championship and PokerStars Festival banners. We'll have coverage of the first one in the Bahamas in January.
In the meantime, follow the last coverage of the EPT right here.
SCORE MILLION IN SERBIA COLUMN
It was a table full of familiar faces foe Sunday Million writer Kristin Bihr. She was covering the Sunday Million as it played out last night and saw a lot of names she recognized from past wins. In the end, she saw the title go to Serbia's Bager1988. She wrote up the story of it happening here.
Here's how the final table results looked.
