There were 71 events on the original EPT Barcelona festival schedule, the inaugural stop of Season 12. An extra — in pot-limit razz (!) — was added along the way to made 72, and alongside the Main Event and High Roller the final five side events played out.
Earlier in the evening Germany’s Daniel Peche came away with the trophy and title in the €200 NL Saturday Night SuperStack (Event #66), overcoming a field of 312 to snatch the win and €11,800 first prize.
As short while later the €5K NL 6-Max. Turbo (Event #69) came to a conclusion. At our last report that one had made the money, and after Rui Ferrera (10th), Patrick Uzan (ninth), Paul Newey (eighth), and Carlos Aoun (seventh) went out, the final table was reached.
Andrey Andreev (sixth), Mikita Badzikouski (fifth), and Glib Kovtunov (fourth) were the next out, followed by €25K High Roller champ Martin Finger in third.
That left Lebanon’s Wael Sarkis and Benjamin Pollak of the U.K. to battle for the win, and Pollak eventually grabbed all of the chips and the trophy to collect a handsome €118,460 first prize.
Danillo Patella of Italy managed to top a 350-player field to win the trophy and €19,850 first prize, outlasting Romania’s Adrian Costin Constantin heads-up and Sweden’s Peter Eichhardt (third), with Heinz Traut (15th) and Jonathan Spaeren (17th) among the deep runners.
