SEASON 11 HIGHLIGHTS
Malta | 895 Players | €4,340,750 Prize Pool | 1st Jean Montury (€687,400)
Malta’s Portomaso Casino played host to the first-ever EPT festival on the picturesque island, and with 69 events on the schedule, it was the tour’s biggest stop to date. Alongside High Roller winner, David Peters (€597,000), the richest prize of the week went to France’s Jean Montury, who outlasted 894 others to claim the Main Event trophy and €687,400. Montury beat fellow countryman Valentin Messina (€615,000) heads-up after the duo had agreed to a deal, while 2014 PCA champion, Dominik Panka, busted in third place for €347,300.
Deauville | 592 Players | €2,841,600 Prize Pool | 1st Ognyan Dimov (€543,700)
The first EPT event of 2015 saw one of the biggest reversals in the tour’s history. Romania’s Dany Parlafes entered the final table with almost half the total chips in play, but would fall to Bulgaria’s Ognyan Dimov at the final hurdle, with Parlafes forced to settle for second place and €338,700, as Dimov’s went on to earn €543,700 in prize money and his first EPT trophy.
Prague | 1,107 Players | £ 5,535,000 Prize Pool | 1st Stephen Graner ( £ 969,000 )
The USA’s Stephen Graner scooped close to a million Euro after dominating the final day’s play at EPT Prague. The Las Vegas-based 26-year-old held a commanding lead throughout the last day’s play, arriving with the biggest stack by some margin, and departing with the lion’s share of the prize money. By the time Graner found himself heads-up with Sweden’s Anton Bertilsson he held a 7-1 chip lead, and went on to close out the tournament in rapid fashion.
London | 675 Players | £ 2,619,000 Prize Pool | 1st Sebastian Pauli ( £ 499,700 )
Germany’s Sebastian Pauli became the 100th winner in EPT history, denying two former champs the chance to add to their haul in the process. Coming into the final table as chip leader, Pauli’s grip on the trophy never softened as big names like Team PokerStars Pro Jake Cody and Kevin MacPhee (both looking to join Vicky Coren-Mitchell in the two-time EPT winner’s circle) hit the rail on an emotional final table. Pauli would eventually defeat MacPhee heads-up, and when the final river card was dealt the enormity of what he’d achieved, combined with the £499,700 first prize, brought tears to the young pro’s eyes.
Barcelona | 1,496 Players | € 7,255,600 Prize Pool | 1st Andre Lettau ( € 794,058 )
The 100th EPT Main Event in the tour’s long and illustrious history went to Germany’s Andre Lettau after a gruelling final table showdown. With the clock edging past 4am in Spain, Lettau finally saw off the spirited challenge of America’s Sam Phillips to get his hands on the title and €794,058 in prize money. Phillips would be left to console himself with €1,021,275 in cash thanks to earlier banking the lion’s share of a three-way deal with Lettau and third-place finisher, Hossein Ensan.
