Sebastian Pauli Wins EPT London Main Event for £499,700

The European Poker Tour in London is coming towards its end, after the main event is now also finished playing. Last night the winner was found after a week long tournament, which saw 675 players competing not only for the first prize of £499,700, but also for the prestige it is to win.

 

The past couple of days, Sebastian Pauli has been the guy most people has been talking about, being the chipleader both with 16 left but also at the final table. He also managed to continue his dominant playing style and took home the title and the £499,700 first prize.

 

The final table provided plenty of great poker for the rail and for the people streaming it, with big bluffs, big hero calls and hero folds. The players were there to play, they all wanted the title and they played their a-game to try and get it, but in the end Pauli was no match for any of the players.

 

In the final hand of the day, Pauli gets all-in pre-flop against Kevin MacPhee, with Pauli holding Ace-Queen and MacPhee holding Ace-Ten. With a chiplead to Pauli prior to the hand and no help to MacPhee on the board, Pauli could take yet another EPT trophy back with him to Germany.

 

Final Table Payouts:

 

1: Sebastian Pauli – £499,700

2: Kevin MacPhee – £308,500

3: Kevin Killeen – £220,500

4: Artur Koren – £168,900

5: Jake Cody – £133,800

6: Jakub Mroczek – £104,200

7: Jonathan Bensadoun – £75,900

8: Pablo Gordillo – £51,900
