EPT9 Berlin: Jonas Lauck takes down the turbo bounty, wins €20,000 (and more)

Jonas Lauck won the large bounty €500 + €500 bounty event yesterday to pocket €20,000. No, wait, at least €20,500. Bounty events have a split prize pool with half the money being paid out according to your finishing position and the rest being given out to the player that scalps you. Lauck, who won the €2,700 France Poker Series High Roller that preceded EPT Deauville for €163,700, would have collected a number of bounties to go along with his trophy and the €20,000 he collected after a three-way deal.
