The final day of the EPT Barcelona Main Event saw the return of seven players instead of six players (it was supposed to be a six-handed final table but play went on longer than expected on Day 5). There weren't any big stars among the finalists, though, it was still it an exciting final table to follow as it was the biggest EPT Main Event ever (1,785 entries) with a massive prize pool at stake (€8,925,000)!
After about 11 hours of play on Day 6, a 21-year-old Polish player named Sebastian Malec was the last man standing after sending Uri Reichenstein packing in second place for €807k. Malec won his entry for the record €5,300 Main Event via a cheap online satellite. We can only imagine how good it must feel to have bested such a big field (with so many great poker players) to win €1,122,800 from just a €27 investment!
