European Poker Tour Update

We've had a few weeks to recuperate and regroup following the European Poker Tour (EPT) Barcelona. It was a busy and record-breaking EPT Main Event with 1,785 players, which was won by 21 year old Sebastien Malec for €1,122,800 who qualified for just €27. That was a great story and the final hand wi...more

Give it to Connor Drinan, a man who likes to win in Barcelona. By almost any measure, this was a huge EPT Barcelona festival.

EPT13 Barcelona: Sebastian Malec, wizard, chip leader
