The European Poker Tour Berlin will be a long time remembered tournament. The massive first prize, a record field of 945 poker players from 48 countries and an armed robbery during the fourth day of the event, are the spicy details of the event.
The European Poker Tour Berlin was held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, located at Potsdamer Platz, Berlin and it was the biggest poker tournament ever held in Germany.
Kevin MacPhee took down the top prize after a three hours battle against the Finnish Ilari Tahkokallio.
Winning an EPT was a real goal of mine. I have worked very hard for this. It feels awesome. Ilari is an extremely good player and I've got a lot of respect for him, said MacPhee, who already competed in 15 EPT events, but he had never won a big cash before.
Here are the final table results:
1st place - Kevin MacPhee, USA, PokerStars qualifier, 1,000,000;
2nd place Ilari Tahkokallio, Finland, 600,000;
3rd place Marc Inizan, France, 350,000;
