Germany's Hossein Ensan appearance at the EPT Prague final table marked his third EPT final table since last fall in Spain when he went deep with a third place finish at the EPT Barcelona. Ensan also final tabled the EPT Malta, but he finally broke through with a victory in Prague.
Ensan and Russia's Gleb Tremzin chopped it up when it got to heads-up. They had to play for the title and an additional €30K. Ensan sent the Russian packing and he finally took his place in the winner's circle.
