EPT9 London: Markus Ristola tops the PLO turbo, wins £16,300
Markus Ristola won £200,367 back in the 2009 WSOPE Main Event when he finished 5th behind Barry Shulman, Daniel Negreanu, Praz Bansi and Jason Mercier. As a quartet to finish runner-up to it's an impressive bunch.
Ristola started this year off to a flier, too. He won a €5,000 event in January for €85,000 and has notched up his second live win of the year here at EPT London in a PLO turbo for £16,300. EPT London has a whole lot of side action, as well as cash games, the schedule of which you can find here.
