EPT9 Berlin: Rudolf Zintel zips up €15,000 win

Rudolf Zintel was one of the early winners here in Berlin having sealed a solid €15,000 win after a three-handed deal with Italian Giuseppe Cimelli and the Swiss Simon Burri. Zintel's trophy came after in a €330 deep stack tournament just ahead of the EPT Berlin Main Event which sports a somewhat larger €5,300 price tag to enter.

Congratulations, Rudolf, Christmas has come early.
