2013 EPT Berlin Side Events: Marcel Luske's Heater Continues with Two More Titles
The European Poker Tour’s Season 9 visit to Berlin wrapped up Saturday with Daniel Pidun and Griffin Benger winning the Main Event and High Roller, respectively. But the festival included more than just those two major events. With 45 events scheduled, several notables landed in the winner's circle during the two-week series. Among the winners were Rupert Elder, Micah Raskin, Jason Wheeler, Joe Kuether, Jeff Rossiter, and Team PokerStars Pro Marcel Luske, who continued his hot run in 2013 by winning two side events in Berlin.
Marcel Luske is on a heater of a lifetime. Last week, just days before winning the 7-Card Stud Deep Stack, Luske defeated a pool of 119 players to claim the top prize of €32,000 for taking down the €1,100 Pot-Limit Omaha event. Luske has five titles since last December, when he won the PokerStars Sunday Warm-up. He then won two PokerStars Caribbean Adventure side events in January. The man known as the Flying Dutchman now boasts more than $4 million in career live earnings which places him first on the Netherlands' all-time money list. His two wins during EPT Berlin put him at 31 live tournament wins for his career.
