EPT12 Prague: Third time's a charm for champion Hossein Ensan

Brad Willis

At 51 years old, Hossein Ensan is not the poster boy for modern poker championships. Nearly no one on the poker circuit had heard of him until 2014 when he won the EPT Seniors Event in Barcelona. He parlayed those winnings into a live satellite that eventually put him in the Barcelona Main Event where he finished third. Just a few months later, he made a final table again at EPT Malta. Now, on his third Main Event final table appearance in 16 months, Ensan can call himself a champion in what many people now think of as a young person's game.
