EPT London 2013: Martin Finger wins the Super High Roller
Since last week, the city of London was in excitement with the holding of the second step of the European Poker Tour. While the Main Event at £5,250 of buy-in started quickly with 209 participants during the Day 1A, the Super High Roller tournament ended with the victory of Martin Finger. 57 entries were registered during this poker event at £50,000 of buy-in. Numerous notable players and enthusiasts of high stakes were present, following the example of Patrik Antonius, Victor Blom, Sorel Mizzi, Dan Shak, Steven Silverman, Daniel Negreanu, Steve O'Dwyer, John Juanda, Paul Newey, Andrew Chen and the n#1 of the GPI Player of the Year Ole Schemion. This field generated a prizepool of £2,736,866 (about $4,386,375) shared between the eight finalists.
On Sunday in the afternoon, the final table gathered the eight survivors of this poker tournament. Germany was represented massively during this event with four representatives, namely the chipleader of the final table Martin Finger, Tobias Reinkemeier, Christoph Vogelsang and Johannes Strassmann. The four other players of the final table were Bill Perkins, Tim Adams, Patrik Antonius and David Benefield. As he has already pocketed $506,764 for his victory at the $3,000 NLH Six-max of the WSOP, Martin Finger swells this year his gain with $1,315,817 (£821,000), with this new coronation at the Super High Roller of the EPT London, after a heads-up with his compatriot Tobias Reinkemeier ($951,844). In the 3rd place, we find Christoph Vogelsang ($614,155) followed by Bill Perkins (4th, $464,943), Johannes Strassmann (5th, $359,646), Tim Adams (6th, $280,793), David Benefield (7th, $223,737) and Patrik Antonius (8th, $175,424).
