The European Poker Tour Barcelona is running until August 28th, with a lot of prestigious titles to grab. A total of 240 players entered this year’s High Roller, and Nick Petrangelo turned out the strongest, defeating Polish Marcin Chmielewski heads-up.

Seat 9

Yaroshevskyy was the first to bust, he couldn’t run his short stack up and earned 45,630 for his efforts. Other shortstack Yang Zhang was next, he collected 57,270 for his run. Shortly after, Del Piero ran his pocket 9’s into Kuo’s rockets and he finished in seventh for 75,900. This was the furthest she would go, since her Q’s couldn’t find improvement against Korenev’s K’s a couple of hands later.

 

 

Plesuv (fifth, 134,100) and Korenev (fourth, 173,670) were the next players to leave the final table, and play resumed three-handed. After four long hours, Koplimaa found his Waterloo when his ace-seven couldn’t win against Chmielewski’s ace-jack, Koplimaa earned 220,230 for his third-place finish.

 

 

Petrangelo started the heads-up with a huge chip-disadvantage, but managed to double up four times to take the chiplead. Shortly after Chmielewski had all his chips in the middle with pocket 5’s against Petrangelo’s king-jack, and a jack on the flop sealed the deal and gave Petrangelo the title and 413,000.
