Prague is definitely the centre of all of the world’s poker activity right now with two major poker tournaments; European Poker Tour(EPT) and World Poker Tour(WPT) going on this past week. While EPT Prague winded up a record breaking third stop of its Season 10 Schedule, the WPT Main Event is closing in on the money bubble.
After six days of action at EPT Prague, the Main Event and the €10,000 High Roller Event winded up with Julian Track winning the former and taking the top prize of €725,700. Day 6 had seen the final eight players coming back for action after seeing a record turnout of 1007 players. It took some tough and long hands before players started getting eliminated. The problem was that everyone was a deep stack and no clear leaders were standing when the days play began.
Ole Schemion who just climbed to the top of Global Poker Index player of the Year(POY) Rankings last week overcoming Daniel Negreanu was also in contention but finally settled for 5th place. Track entered heads up play with Georgios Sotiropoulos and they entered a deal where they would each lock up €700,000 and play for €25,700. Track who wasn’t feeling too well did emerge the winner also take the title and the top prize money.
