EPT9 Berlin: Brian Trisler wins sit-and-go, takes trophy

Well, I think this is a first: an EPT trophy with a 1st place payout of less than €1,000. It was only a matter of time given this season's new approach to laying a lot of different forms and formats of poker. Surely 'PL 5 Card Stud deep stack turbo 6-handed' must have been a mistake? As if Live Poker Specialist Neil Johnson threw a bunch of poker words into a blender, gave it a spin and pulled out a bunch of mish-mashed words.

"PL 5 Card Stud deep stack turbo 6-handed? That could work, right?"

At least seven people agreed with him and attempted to parlay their money into a trophy. Brian Tisler was the last man standing and took the lucky €888 payout.
