Barcelona

The PokerStars Championship Barcelona wrapped up late yesterday with final tables in the Main Event and High Roller concluding.

In the Main Event Sebastian Sorensson scored the biggest win of his career in only his second live event, spending most of it wrapped up in a Miami Dolphins scarf. He earned €987,000 after a three-way deal with Lachezar Petkov and winner of the PokerStars Championship Monaco Main Event Raffaele Sorrentino.

Meanwhile in the High Roller Ronnie Kaiser, a former EPT winner, took a first prize of €735,000, after a three way deal with Markus Durnegger and Benjamin Pollak. Read the full story here.
