EPT9 Sanremo: Jose Carlos Garcia finishes strong at EPT Sanremo

Rick Dacey

As the dust settles on EPT Sanremo, for another season at least, they'll be plenty looking back on the festival with a smile on their face and a bulge in their wallet. Among the happiest of that crew will be Jose Carlos Garcia who won the last big tournament of the festival, scooping €58,900 in the €2,100 turbo right at the end of the last day of play. Not only did Garcia get to leave on a high but he managed to achieve what he failed to do earlier this year: win a €2,100 EPT side event. In March at EPT8 Madrid Garcia finished runner-up to Joris Springael. The €58,900 is the Pole's biggest live result yet. Curiously EPT Loutraki Zimnan Ziyard finished third in both of those events. You can't knock his consistency.
