The 2019 European Poker Tour (EPT) Barcelona is currently underway at the Casino Barcelona and yesterday saw the culmination of its €100,000 EPT Super High Roller after 3 days of intense action. While there were several players in contention for the title, it was eventually Spain’s Sergi Reixach who emerged victorious after beating a 64-entry field and UK’s Sam Grafton in heads-up. Reixach earned his career-best score of €1,816,210, while Grafton banked a good €1,303,950 for his efforts.
Reixach entered the final table with the fourth-largest stack and steadily built his stack to eventually win the coveted title. On his way to the victory, he busted Mikalai Vaskaboinikau, Rui Ferreira, Luc Greenwood, Danny Tang, and the runner-up Sam Grafton from the UK to earn his third EPT title!
The final hand of the tournament saw Reixach limping from the button and Grafton raised to 600,000, which Reixach called. The flop came down Kc Js 3d. Grafton led out for 325,000 and Reixach decided to call again. The turn opened 5d and it went check-check. The last card opened 7h and Grafton shoved all-in for 1,725,000, which Reixach quickly called. Then, the cards were turned over.
Grafton: Qc 6s
Reixach: Kd 8d
Reixach flopped a king pair, which was enough for him to win the coveted title for €1,816,210.
