EPT12 Barcelona: Gavrilovich grabs €2K Deepstack, last events underway
Like you, we're intently following the action on EPT Live, as curious as you are to discover who among the four players left will be the next Main Event champion.
But the side action keeps churning along all about the center stage and the finale of the High Roller. That, too, is grabbing our attention, giving us a other few items from this last day of the EPT Barcelona festival to share.
We have one winner to report from the €2K NL Deepstack (Event #65), where Jenya Gavrilovich of Belarus was able to overcome a tough final table to win €75,300 and trophy.
The finish came after a heads-up deal with eventual runner-up Lebanon's Samir Moukawem. Andoni Larrabe (third), Jonathan Little (fourth), Georges Zisimopoulos (seventh), and Jason Wheeler (eighth) were part of the challenging final group there.
The final table of the €200 NL Saturday Night SuperStack (Event #66) is winding toward a finish in the corner of the poker room where just four players remain out of a starting field of 312 with a €11,800 prize up top for the winner.
Meanwhile, among the tournaments that started (and will finish) today are three turbos and a hyperturbo, the headliner among them being the €5K NL 6-Max. Turbo (Event #69) mentioned earlier today that drew a ton of big names.
Just 10 players are left from a starting field of 92, meaning they are getting close to reaching the six-handed final table. Benjamin Pollak and €25K High Roller winner Martin Finger have big stacks over there at the moment.
Rui Ferrera, Carlos Aoun, and Paul Newey are also still alive in that one. Thirteen players are dividing a big €446,200 prize pool there, with €118,460. Already picking up small cashes so far have been Vladimir Dobrovolskii (13th), Felix Stephensen (12th), and Ivan Luca (11th).
The last three events are all underway now and scheduled to complete later tonight.
The €300 NL Turbo Edition of EPT Main Event (Event #68) has drawn 350 players, building a €101,850 prize pool with €19,850 for first.
The €2K NL 6-Max. Turbo (Event #70) has another 203 players participating, all vying to claim a piece of the €393,820 prize pool with the winner scheduled to earn €83,290.
And the very last event, the €100 NL Hyperturbo (Event #71), has 264 playing with €5,130 for first.
Back a little later to wrap up loose ends, side event-wise, and see who gets the last of these.
