The new season of the European Poker Tour kicked off with the 2109 EPT Barcelona. This event has been a popular stop since the earliest days of the EPT when it was John Duthie's brain child. Who didn't want to catch one last week of summer fun in Spain before the dreary autumn set in? A quickie holiday in Barcelona is also a perfect spot for a poker event. The EPT Barcelona went from a single event to this gigantic poker festival that celebrated all things Spain.

This year's EPT Barcelona crowned a champion in the €1,100 buy-in National. Estonia's Markku Koplimaa took down the National for a €585,500 score. It drew a record number of entrants this year with 4,682 runners plus a $4.54 million prize pool.

Mikhail Rudoy won the €25,000 Shortdeck event for a €213K score after he outlasted a final table that included Chin Wei Lim, Ike Haxton, Yake Wu, and Mike Watson.

This year's EPT Barcelona €100K High Roller featured 64 runners and 14 re-entries. The prize pool topped €6.2 million with only the top nine places winning prize money.

At the end of Day 2, only nine players remained and everyone advanced to the money. Daniel Dvoress bubbled the money and the final table when he whiffed with Ace-King against Danny Tang's pocket Queens.

Notables who went deep in the 100K, but failed to cahs included Sam Greenwood, Patrik Antonius, Mike Soyza, Tim Adams, Linus Loeliger, Ben Heath, Seth Davies, Segio Aido, Alex Foxen, and Adrian Mateos.

The final nine included Sergi Reixach, Sam Grafton, Danny Tang, Kahle Burns, Tsugunari Toma, Luc Greenwood, Steve O'Dwyer, Rui Ferreira, and Mikalai Vaskaboinikau.

Mikalai Vaskaboinikau bounced first and Portugal's Rui Ferreira went out in 8th place. Mango Man Steve O'Dwyer did not win this High Roller. I guess that should have really been the lede. Anytime O'Dwyer does not win a big event is national news. OS SOD (aka Old School Steve O'Dwyer) busted in seventh place.

Lucas Greenwood hit the bricks in sixth place, followed by Japan's Tsugunari Toma in fifth place.

Kahle Burns's run ended in fourth place. The Aussie banked €640K for a couple of days of work.

Hong Kong-based baller Danny Wong went deep but busted in third place. Wong took home €847,570 for third place and his elimination set up the heads-up finale between British pro Sam Grafton and Spain's Sergi Reixach.

Grafton could not overcome Reizach's home-field advantage. Spain prevailed in the 100K High Roller when Grafton busted in second place. For a runner-up finish, Grafton banked €1.3 million. Not too shabby, eh?

Sergi Reixach won the title, trophy and a suitcase full of cash worth €1.8 million.
