this is great prizes for this young player!ofcourse buy in is huge,but it worth every cent for him!lot of players for this kind of event in europe,but great payout for every player!and what to say about last hand,pair vs pair and stronger pair won!spend this money on something good!
investing 5300 dollars is risky enough .... and only a few people can afford it .... especially in the tournament more than 1000 players participated .... and of course the prize is appropriate .... 840000 dollars ..... of course great winning .... and again I see that the title gets a new player .... again confirmation that poker is available to very many .... more and more players

We see a deal on this one, and why not after all when you are talking for that amount of money. With a 5300 euro buy in you end up getting almost 900k euro as a prize. That is what you call a good investment Great timing for the holidays also

The amount is not unreal, even if the winner of the game says it is. There are over 1000 entries with a high buy-in. Investing is not risky because these players are professional in majority. They can easily recover this amount in online cash games. I think it's the first time when i see in BankrollMob, a news with a Romanian player, at a final table, in a live tournament. Is a known player in my country.

for most of this players this isnt some amount to spend on buy in!when you have this kind of amount for live tournament,for sure you dont care a lot if you lose it!it you have 15000 $ in bank you wouldnt spend 5300 on buy in,so for this players its easier to play,but when 840000 e come on account,thats something special!

after leaving behind 1174 people and fattening his account at almost 1million dollars this German should be in the fold as well as being a champion of an EPT of Laqmbuja took a platinum pass bahamas to if I could have a wish would be performed forever in the poker because it is the tournament that I most want to play
