EPT9 Berlin: Unstoppable Luske wins another trophy

Marcel Luske is a machine, an unstoppable poker machine. Just a few hours after James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton were congratulating him on the EPTLive webcast about his last side event win, Luske was back at it winning another EPT trophy. Sure, it's another small event but Luske's mantelpiece must be groaning under the weight of his silverware. He's picked up four spades already this year; two here in Berlin (having won €32,000 in a €1k PLO a couple of days ago) and two at the PCA in January. And he binked the Sunday Warm-Up a just before Christmas. This has been going on for years.
