EPT Event Final Table

Seat 1: Oliver Price, 23, London, UK – PokerStars player - 1,735,000 chips
By making the final table in the EPT10 Deauville Main Event, Oliver Price is looking to add another career highlight to his deep run in last summer's World Series Main Event where he made it to Day 6 before falling in 49th place. His $151,063 cash for that finish was nearly ten times his career live winnings up to that point after collecting various small scores in Las Vegas and the UK.  Meanwhile Price has had significant success online, including chopping the Sunday Million early last year for an even bigger prize of $184,688.  After first learning the game in his early teens, the southeast Londoner now prefers cash games (both online and live) to tournaments. This marks only his second EPT after playing EPT London last October.

Seat 2: Harry Law, 27, London, UK -  3,130,000 chips
Harry Law is a live cash game player who touts his talent at the £2/£5 and £5/£10 cash tables in casinos around London. Law, who says that he’s not a tournament player, has only notched up a few small cashes before, yet is on the verge of claiming one of poker’s most prestigious titles. Perhaps it’s time to reconsider that specialisation.

Seat 3: Carlo De Benedittis, 35, from Campobasso, Italy; living in Paris – PokerStars.fr qualifier – 685,000 chips
Carlo De Benedittis won his package to EPT Deauville on PokerStars.fr for a total investment of €20. Winning the package was already his biggest result ever so making it to the final is, in his words, astonishing. He said: “Honestly, when I won the package, I looked at it and it said, ‘Hotel for eight nights’ and I was thinking to myself: ’What on earth am I doing to do for eight nights?’”. The 35-year-old is from the town of Campobasso in southern Italy but now lives in Paris where he’s a purchaser for the Smurfit Kappe paper company. He’s been playing poker in home games with friends since he was 15 and online for around ten years. His only other big score was making the live televised final of PokerStars.it’s All Stars of Poker contest in 2010. He bust in the first round. He’s here in Deauville on his own but his mother, twin brother Andrea and older brother Luca are following the action on EPTLive - and teasing him relentlessly on whatsapp. He’s was all in fairly early on Day 5 but survived a one-outer against chip leader Koutoupas for a crucial double-up. Every day since he got to Deauville, he’s made it a mission to get nearer and nearer the sea; today he dipped his toe in. It was freezing but he’s now thinking that he might have to go for a swim tomorrow to keep up his good luck.

Seat 4, Eugene Katchalov, 32, Team PokerStars Pro, Ukraine, 3,280,000 chips
Born in Kiev, Ukraine, Team PokerStars Pro Eugene Katchalov spent much of his childhood in Brooklyn, New York. He graduated in Finance and International Business and was then a stock market trader before becoming a poker pro in 2003. He has already come close to an EPT title before – third at EPT8 Barcelona for $453,812 – and is thrilled to make another final table. He said: “I am just so happy to get another chance at an EPT title, considering I didn’t get one in Barcelona two years ago.”
His live tournament record is one of the most impressive of any player in recent years, with huge cash finishes at most of the world’s biggest tournaments. He already has a WPT victory and WSOP bracelet so an EPT victory would award him the coveted Triple Crown. He already has several cashes on the European Poker Tour including third EPT6 London High Roller for $307,247 and third at EPT8 Barcelona for $453,812. He also scored a huge win at the first-ever $100,000 Super High Roller event at the 2011 PCA, beating fellow Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu heads-up for $1,500,000.
In 2011, Katchalov won the WSOP $1,500 Seven Card Stud event for $122,909 and but his biggest cash was third in the 2010 $10,000 HORSE event for $248,831. He won the 2007 WPT’s Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic for $2,482,605, one of the biggest payouts in WPT history, and the biggest prize of his career so far. His total live earnings already total more than $7 million and in 2011 he was Bluff Player of the Year. Eugene also has two WCOOP titles  - the Heads-Up event in 2009 for $170,000 and Stud Hi/Lo in 2012 for $24,588.

Seat 5, Anthony Lerust, 24, from Amiens, France; living in Albufeira, Portugal, 1,295,000 chips
Anthony ‘Laplume’ Lerust was born in the north of France but moved to the south to “live my dreams and share my passion for rap music, hip hop and poker with my friends there”. Living in Albi, he became a member of the ‘Skarkuteur’ team of players, also including the French pro Anthony Cierco. Success eluded him however so last September he moved with his best friend Pierre Morin to the Algarve in Portugal. Lerust plays regularly on PokerStars.com and PokerStars.fr, enjoying deep runs in lots of the regular tourneys such as the Sunday Special, Le Classico, Night On Stars and The Big€50. He recently final-tabled a €1K FCOOP side event and finished fourth in the PokerStars Quarter Million. Lerust is a talented online grinder who, according to media, has been able to adapt to swings of live poker. His family are following him back home in Picardy “especially my mother” and his friends sent him the following message: ‘Anthony, il est temps d’envoyer des bassines’ (‘Anthony it's time to turn on the power!’)
In November 2013, Lerust finished 45th in the FPS Paris Main Event for €2,800 but today’s final table at EPT Deauville is his best result so far. His agent and a couple of friends from the Toulouse area have come to Deauville to play the FPS and will be railing at the final. He said: “I’m very happy to be in Normandy. Deauville is a stunning little town and the atmosphere is fantastic. With this prize money, you will definitely see me again, as I intend to play all EPTs in 2014.’

Seat 6: Eli Heath, 25, Banbury, UK -  2,475,000 chips
A graduate in business and finance from Cardiff University, Eli Heath has never actually had a job other than poker and has been a pro for five years. Heath mainly plays online but has been travelling the EPT circuit for a couple of years and won his first title in Deauville earlier this week in the €1,000 "NL Turbo Random Bounty" tournament for €28,000. He has already recorded in-the-money finishes across the globe, from Australia to Las Vegas and back to Europe, but is now guaranteed the biggest live cash of his career at the final table of an EPT stop he has rechristened Dough-ville.

Seat 7: Rustem Muratov, 41, Kazan, Russia - 1,070,000 chips
Rustem Muratov qualified for EPT Deauville on PokerStars for €82 and is already in massive profit after winning Skrill’s Last Longer (the €5,300 Deauville buy-in is credited to his Skrill account). Now the 41-year-old from Kazan in Tatarstan, Russia, is headed for the biggest live cash of his life. Muratov, who works as a distributor for the electrical equipment company Schneider, is guaranteed at least €63,900 for making the EPT Deauville final and whatever happens, is already up at least €69,118. This is his first ever EPT, only his fourth live tournament and the biggest buy-in event he’s competed in. He has only two recorded live cashes to date, the biggest being $2,356 for 18th place at a tourney in Cyprus. 
He said: “I’m already very happy. My best result before now was winning the seat for this event! I like Deauville, it looks like a fairytale place (apart from the rain).” Muratov and his wife Svetlana are soon to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary and have two older daughters and a nine-month old son. Svetlana couldn’t come to Deauville but is following all the action on EPTLive back home. Muratov is being supported here by his friend Ilyas who came along to play the cash games.

Seat 8, Sotirios Koutoupas, 31, Thessaloniki, Greece - 6,400,000
Sotirios Koutoupas, 31, already has nearly $750,000 in lifetime tournament winnings – a large chunk of which he earned with his €510,000 runner-up finish to Ramzi Jelassi at EPT Prague in Season 9.  Yesterday, Koutoupas told the PokerStars Blog: “"I want to be the first Greek player who wins the EPT. I'll do my best.” Koutoupas, currently ranked third on the Greece all time money list, is one of a troop of Greek players who are clocking up big cashes on the tour: Georgios Karakousis was runner-up at EPT London in October and and George Manousos Sotiropoulos snagged €700,000 for his runner-up finish at EPT Prague. Koutoupas is not a pro or a full-time player – he helps run his family’s wholesale business - but has started picking up results and stacks that some tour pros would be pretty jealous of, including 56th at EPT9 Berlin for €15,000 and 25th at the recent EPT Prague for €24,900.

EPT High Roller Event Final Table

Seat 1: Martin Schleich, 31, Munich, Germany 
When German player Martin Schleich won EPT Barcelona in Season 8, he was something of a mystery. At the time he was working part-time in customer service and not a regular on the circuit. Howover even after his massive €850,000 victory, he remained a mystery. Thanks to his reticence in interviews, it was pretty hard to gauge how much impact the win – which was only the fourth in his live tournament career – had had on him.

Since then, Schleich has attended quite a few EPTs but his best result since has been was 22nd in a PCA $2k side event for $6,410. Schleich started playing poker online with No Limit cash games in 2006 and later decided to play more tournament poker, both live and online. His poker expertise is demonstrated by the fact that, in cash games, he reached the highest ranking achievable in a big German online poker school. Other cashes, all on the EPT, include 81st EPT5 San Remo for €9,200 and two PCA side events.

Seat 2: Nikolay Losev, 33, Moscow, Russia
Nikolay Losev is a poker player from Moscow in Russia with over $750,000 in live tournament winnings. Surprisingly, wherever Losev finishes tomorrow on the final table, this will be his first major cash in over two and a half years.

Losev is no stranger to winning in Deauville though. He won the €1,500 event here back in Season 6. Losev also finished tenth in the Main Event at EPT Prague in Season 7. Losev's biggest cash is currently a 28th place finish in the WSOP main event back in 2008 for $193,000 – he'll need to finish in the top two here to beat that result.

Seat 3: Davidi Kitai, Belgium
Belgian pro Davidi Kitai hails from Brussels and was on his second EPT final table when he beat Andrew Chen heads-up to take down EPT Berlin in Season 8 for €712,000. His other EPT final was third at EPT Barcelona in Season 5 for €455,000 – the event won by Sebastian Ruthenberg.  Kitai is the only Belgian who has won both a WSOP bracelet and a WPT title, and his EPT victory in Berlin gained him poker’s elusive “Triple Crown”. 

His lifetime tournament winnings already total more than $3.4 million including his victory in the 2013 WSOP $5k PLO event for $224,560 and three other WSOP cashes last summer. His first WSOP bracelet came in 2008 when he won a €2k Pot Limit Hold’em tourney and he also has a WSOP-E bracelet from his victory in the $5k NL event in Cannes in 2012. Despite always appearing as if he’s just got out of bed, Kitai is no slouch at the table and is widely respected in the poker community. Kitai perfected his poker skills during a trip to Los Angeles in 2003. He had gone to the States to learn English, but it was Texas Hold’em that he mastered. He is #1 (and streets ahead) in the Belgium all-time money list.

Seat 4: Adrian Mateos Diaz, 19, Spain.
Very few people had a better 2013 in poker than Adrian Mateos Diaz. The 19 year-old from Spain, who now lives in London, beat a field of 632 this time last year to win the Estrellas Poker Tour Madrid event for over €100,000. A few months late he followed it up by winning the WSOPE Main Event for €1,000,000 which sent straight up to 3rd in the all-time rankings for Spain.

At the GPI Awards last week, Diaz came away with the GPI Spanish Player of the Year as well as Rookie of the Year for his outstanding performances. He'll have a lot of work to do tomorrow though as Diaz will be the short stack at the final table.

Seat 5: Kent Lundmark, 25, Stockholm, Sweden
Lundmark was already an EPT regular when he took down EPT Barcelona in Season 8 for a massive €825,000. However his first impact on the tour came in January 2010 when he was the longest-lasting Swede at the PCA - finishing in 29th place for $66,000.

Other successes on the EPT include winning an EPT9 London £1k side event and runner-up in an EPT Sanremo €2k event. Lundmark, currently tenth on Sweden’s all time money list, finished 21st in the EPT Prague High Roller last December for €18,950 and has two other EPT side event victories to his name. His lifetime tournament winnings already total nearly $2 million. Lundmark first started playing poker seven years ago after finishing high school. He is also a keen footballer and has played for a team in Sweden’s Fourth Division.

Seat 6: Dominik Panka, 22, Poland
When Panka qualified for this year’s PCA – and then won it for $1,423,096 – he was totally uknown on the live circuit. However his composure and studied determination impressed every one who saw it and when he beat EPT veteran and Dortmund champion Mike McDonald heads-up (a player with far more live tournament experience), no one saw it as anything other than a well-deserved victory.

Panka hails from the tiny town of Brześć Kujawski in Poland and before the PCA only had $8,092 in live tournament cashes to his name, the majority of that from a 42nd place finish in the EPT 10 Barcelona Estrellas €2k High Roller. After his PCA victory, Panka said: “I’m an internet player and I haven’t played many live tournaments. I only started playing live last year and I expected my first big cash to be a tenth of this! It’s weird because I didn’t feel too much pressure on the final table. I concentrated on being a rock, a statue, and now I can’t really dance with joy because I’m still in that mindset.”

Thanks to his PCA victory, Panka was understandably under the spotlight during the EPT Deauville Main Event however, yet again, he seemed wholly unruffled by the attention and spent much of his time at the table reading a thriller by Lee Child. He didn’t cash in that event but has more than made up for it by reaching the final table in the EPT Deauville High Roller.

Seat 7: Albert Daher, 26, Lebanon
Albert Daher is a poker player from Lebanon and good friends with many of the other Lebanese poker players including Jeff Hakim who made the final of EPT Deauville last year and went deep again this time.

Daher had his biggest ever results last year over the space of a few weeks. First he came second in the Merit World Cup of Poker for $137,299 and followed this up by finishing second in the WPT Merit Classic for $160,200. Daher has cashed twice in EPT Main Events: he came 28th at EPT London in Season 9 and 72nd at EPT Barcelona in Season 10. Daher will go into the final table as the chip leader and only has eyes on winning the event

Seat 8: Ondrej Vinklarek, 28, Kolin, Czech Republic
Ondrej “vinkyy” Vinklarek was the EPT8 Player of the Year and already has lifetime tournament winnings totalling more than $600k.

Vinklarek, 28, from Kolin, has been a poker pro for more than four years. As a Chess Candidate Master with a FIDE ranking of 2100, he first came across poker while playing at a big chess festival where they were promoting a live poker free-roll. He said: “I didn’t know the rules and had no idea what Texas Hold’em was but it was still fun. Later on I was in a shop with friends and we saw a chip set, so we started playing home games. After that I started playing small buy-in tournaments online.”

At the time, Vinklarek was studying Maths and Physics at Charles University; the turning point in his poker career came when he entered a $24 tourney online - and won it for $6,000.

Vinklarek’s best result to date was besting a 652-strong field in last year’s WCOOP $530 NL Re-buy tourney for $160,000. His biggest live cash was runner-up in a EPT Berlin €2k last season for €63,000 and other big scores include winning a €1k side event at EPT8 Barcelona, runner-up in an EPT8 Prague €5k NL Turbo and winning an EPT Barcelona €2k NL Turbo at the start of this season.

In Season 8, the year he won EPT Player of the Year, he said: “This has definitely been a break-out 12 months for me – both the WCOOP win and now doing so well in this season’s EPT side events.”

Vinklarek, dubbed “the Czech Chris Moorman”, first took the lead in the EPT8 Player of the Year race in Prague by winning the €1k NL Turbo Bounty, finishing second in the €5k NL Turbo side event and making the final of a €1k side event. He kept up the pace at the 2012 PCA when he finished third (out of 236) in a $2k NL Turbo tourney. He has nine other cashes on the European Poker Tour worth $10k or more.
