Last year’s Main Event winner banks €33,600, another PokerStars trophy and a chunk of bounties.
Two EPT champions made the money in the €2,100 turbo bounty; EPT Copenhagen winner Michael Tureniec and fellow champ Martin Finger, who holds the EPT Prague title (for at least a couple hours more yet*).
Finger took the largest slice of the tournament cash with €33,600 and also banked an additional €10,000 in bounty scalps (or rather a zoom into his winner’s pic seems to show 10 bounty chips anyway). Finger’s heads-up opponent Jan Bendik isn’t a stranger to final tables having made two EPT Main Events final eights as well multiple side events. Bendik is not afraid to play a big pot.
