EPT9 Berlin: Ronny Voth eventually keeps a lead, wins €14,400 in turbo

Habitual chip leader Ronny Voth finally managed to hold onto a big stack to win a trophy here in Germany. Voth had held the chip lead in the Main Event and, after busting out in 50th in that for €15,000, then did the same in the €10,300 High Roller. That Day 1 chip lead didn't last either and he bust out in 10th for converted into a €30,300, but Voth has now got what's he's after here in Berlin: a nice shiny trophy.

Voth's win might have come in a smaller €330 buy-in but the €14,400 win boosts his EPT Berlin takings to €59,700, a touch more than 9th place in the Main Event paid out.
