The EPT Barcelona at the Casino Barcelona was in full swing this weekend with the final table and completion of The National and the conclusion of the €100K Super High Roller. Jean-Rene Fontaine snatched the National crown and walked away with a €547K score. Meanwhile, the final table for the Super High Roller just finished moments ago.
Mikita Badziakouski has been on a sick run. Devastating. Smoking. A heater of epic proportions. Badziakouski took down back-to-back Triton SHR events (in Montenegro and Jeju, South Korea). Badziakouski won over $10M in 2018... and that was only at the start of August. You can add another seven-figure score to his resume with a €1.65 million win in Barcelona.
Mikita Badziakouski outlasted a field of 54 runners at the 2018 EPT Barcelona €100K Super High Roller. The event attracted the usual cast of characters (sharks and wealthy businessmen alike) you'd expect to see at a high-stakes event.
Only the final seven paid out with the majority o the cheesecake going to the champion.
Jean Ferreira took seventh place, while Rui Ferreira snagged sixth place. Benjamin Pollak could only muster up enough run good to finish in fifth place. Canada's Tim Adams banked €576K for fourth place. Matthais Eibinger's exit in third place set up the heads-up battle. Eibinger's score was worth nearly €760K.
Ahadpur Khangah's runner-up finish was worth a heady payday worth €1,191,900. Not too shabby, eh?
Mikita Badziakouski did it again. The Belarussian shipped the SHR and a first-place windfall worth a tick above €1.65 million.
