The European Poker Tour crowned a Main Event champion on Sunday, but that was just the last hand dealt at the end of two weeks of poker.
The EPT Barcelona was coupled with the ESPT this year. This collaboration made for a schedule that ran the gamut from a few hundred euros up to a hundred-thousand.
There were seven super high roller events that played out on the Catalonian seaboard over the last few weeks. Four €25k buy-in events, two €50ks, and a €100k.
As you might imagine, with so much money on the line there were plenty of exciting stories.
Mike Watson took down €50,000 EPT Single-Day High Roller I after firing four bullets. That took a chunk off the profit he earned from his €872,940 payout.
Erik Seidel repeated his 1988 WSOP showing by coming in second place with millions on the line in the €100,000 EPT Super High Roller. Mikita Badziakouski took first place and €1,979,220 in that event.
Steve O’Dwyer went from bubble boy in the €10k event to champion in €25,000 EPT No-Limit Hold’em II. Meanwhile, Francisco Benitez won the €10k event and went on to take down €25,000 EPT No-Limit Hold’em I for another €341,565.
All the high roller events were live streamed on PokerStars Live.
