Many congratulations to Paul Michaelis on winning this event and the first prize of $954,677. Prague is a very beautiful city and it must be like a dream come true to go there and win life changing amounts of money as well

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 Smile
Great timing for the holidays also Smile

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.

Naah, man EPT is a legit tourney with a good reputation but not many people will be travelling to Prague to play poker days before christmas anyway, so this was just bad logistics on their part.

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
