Spindler Closes Out EPT San Remo High Roller for €253k
German tournament-crushing machine Benny Spindler beat online grinder Keven Stammen heads-up to win the €10k EPT San Remo High Roller for €253k earlier today.
A total of 74 players paid the €10k buy-in and once 10 reloads were added into the equation the prize pool hit €823,200.
Gruissem and Kurganov bailed early in sixth and seventh respectively while Cheong once again recorded a fourth place finish, this time for €74,100.
Nordkvist entered the final table as the chip lead but eventually hit the rail in third place when he shoved ace-queen into Spindler’s pocket queens.
Spindler, Stammen Play Extended Heads-Up Match
Spindler entered heads-up play with a massive lead on Stammen but the match proved to be a prolonged affair with Stammen grabbing the chip lead before eventually giving it back.
The tournament ended with a bang as Stammen got all-in with pocket sevens but Spindler called him down with none other than pocket aces.
The board gave Stammen nothing and the U.S. pro had to settle for a €200,000 consolation prize.
It’s been a solid week for Stammen as he also won the €2k No-Limit Hold’em Turbo event at PokerStars' EPT San Remo for €92,900.
