Two of European poker's most popular ladies dominated the Spanish Poker Tour Grand Finale at the Gran Casino Costa Brava in Lloret del Mar this week.

It was Germany’s Marvin Rettenmaier who took down the SPT Grand Finale outlasting a field of 120.

But he first had to get past 888Poker player and French model and poker media personality Claire Renaut heads-up to collect the €111,000 first-place prize.

Renaut added €60,000 to the more than $170,000 she's won in 2010 through three wins and 15 different cashes.

The €3,200 Grand Finale's €360,000 prize pool marked the biggest in tour history.

A total of 52 players qualified for the event on Everest Poker and the tour sponsor had two of it's players in the final, including Live the Dream winner Koen de Bakker (3rd) and defending 2009 SPT Champion Steven van Zadelhoff (4th).

In addition to the Grande Finale, Everest Poker invited the tour's top 45 players into a €48,000 SPT MVP Freeroll.

Spain’s Leo Margets, the last woman standing at the 2009 WSOP Main Event, took the title and €15,500 first prize there.

Now in its third season, the SPT is fast becoming one of Europe’s most popular poker tours with events this year in Aranjuez, Valencia, Sevilla, Castellón and Ibiza.
