Sylvain Loosli Wins EPT Barcelona €50,000 Super High Roller For €1,224,000

EPT Barcelona is underway in the beautiful Spanish city, with more players and higher prize pools than seen in many years. The Barcelona stop seems more popular than ever and players have given their praises to the tournament series.

One of the most anticipated events in the series was the €50,000 buy-in Super High Roller tournament, where some of the best players in the world were set to compete for a first prize well above the €1,000,000 mark.

Around 100 players paid the €50,000 buy-in, creating a prize pool of €4,753,485 to be split amongst the players finishing in the money. The final table of the event was represented by multiple countries from across the world, with all nine players being from different countries.

In the end it became a battle between the Polish star Dzmiztry Urbanovich and French player Sylvain Loosli, with the two playing great poker against each other. Loosli quickly took a big lead, but got back to square one after Urbanovich doubled.

From there on out Loosli was in charge of the match and his victory came after his pocket fives held against Urbanovich’ Jack-Ten, giving him the first prize of €1,224,000 while Urbanovich took home €841,500 for his second place finish.
