EPT9 Berlin: Moorman settles for second again as Studer scoops €131,000

Poor old Chris Moorman, he keeps missing out on trophies. This time round, in the €2,150 No-Limit Hold'em event #20, the poker prodigy was held to the runner-up spot by Daniel Studer. Still, Moorman did get to pocket €72,900 so not all's lost. Studer scored by far the largest win of his career beating the Brit heads-up to collect the €131,000 1st place prize.

It was a tough field with Rhys Jones, Taylor Paur and Griffin Benger all making the final nine. Matthias De Meulder cashed in 10th while former EPT Main Event final table finishers Andras Kovacs, Dmitry Vitkind, Joni Jouhkimainen, Mike McDonald and Mohsin Charania (those last two are former winners to be precise) all made the money.
