EPT Barcelona: Martin Finger Completes The EPT Triple Crown!

Tags: EPT Triple Crown, Liv Boeree, Mark Teltscher, Martin Finger.
Posted on Friday, August 28, 2015 by "T".

The €25,000 High Roller event (a single-day event that required two days to be completed) resumed on Thursday at Casino Barcelona after a one-day break. The returning players were former Main Event winners Martin Finger, Liv Boeree and Mark Teltscher, all of whom had survived 115 entrants on the first day to secure a payday of at least €391,000 each!

Liv Boeree was the first player to hit the rail. The Team PokerStars Pro was down about 10 big blinds when she decided to go all in with queen-ten from the button - Mark Teltscher called from the big blind with ace-four. The turn gave Boeree both flush- and straight draw, but the river blanked and she was sent to the cash desk with a €391,000 cheque - her second-best tournament cash after the EPT Sanremo Main Event victory (€1,250,000) five years ago.

Teltscher and Finger's stacks were almost even at one point of the heads-up battle. Teltscher talked about making a deal, but Finger declined and play continued. Teltscher then claimed some decent pots to give himself a two-to-one chip advantage. Unfortunately for Teltscher, Finger then won two all-ins (pocket jacks bested king-queen and ace-four overcame jack-nine) within a few minutes to take down the tournament and the €865,900 first-place prize! (Teltscher received €586,500 for his runner-up finish).

Despite only being 25-years-old, Finger has already won an EPT Main Event, a Super High Roller, and now a High Roller! He's the first player ever to complete this unique EPT Triple Crown.

With only three left I would have gone for Martin Finger to win,a shame a UK player didn't get a tournament win but this has to be Liv Boeree's best result for years.I often wonder why she has been in Team Pokerstars for so long without winning much.

shame that boeree was kicked out by teltscher and not finger, i imagine the headlines would've been must more juicy then: "boeree has been showed the finger", "boeree has been put to the sword by finger", "the mighty finger does the job on boeree", "finger goes all-in and boeree feels the consequences"

Martin Finger what a great achievement ..
EPT Main Event, a Super High Roller, and a High Roller ..
Just wow , these German players are starting to make a name for themselves
lot of known names in that final table ..
Isaac Haxton only 6th spot .. still a great run for the online phenomenon
Mike McDonald with his amazing/frightening stare .. 5th spot .. nice to see him still making good results
