Vitaly Lunkin tonight won the EPT Barcelona Super High Roller to claim the first trophy of EPT Season 10. The Russian player won €771,300 and a Shamballa Jewels bracelet after beating one of the toughest fields in poker, as highlighted by his heads-up opponent, Erik Seidel. The tall American, whose results stretch all the way back to 1988, a number of years before some of his opponents were born, today scored his 39th six-figure-plus score. Yes, his 39th.
