EPT9 London: Another trophy for Rumen Nanev, wins third side event of Season 9

Bulgarian Rumen Nanev is having a great EPT season so far. Not content with a 30th place finish in the Main Event for £15,000, Nanev jumped into event #L, a PLO/NLHE tournament just after busting. While he couldn't win a big flip in the main he certainly could in the side event where he made a deal heads-up with Irishman Dermot Blain.

It's Nanev's third EPT side event of the season. The first came in Sanremo for €7,600, the second in Prague for €15,000. This is his seventh cash of the EPT season. A solid EPT leader board finish must be looking good for the former casino manager.
