Chris Hall

Pratyush Buddiga has won the incredibly tough-looking €2k Turbo 6-Handed event for €65,650. The American beat EPT8 Madrid champion Frederik Jensen (€44,730) heads-up in a short battle after Antonio Monteiro Ramalho was knocked out in third (€29,550). In the final hand Jensen got his chips in ahead with [As][4c] but was let down by the poker gods when Buddiga's [Qd][9c] got there on the river of the [6s][7d][5s][Ad][8s] board.
