Daniel Negreanu, the canadian Team PokerStars Pro, had a big chip lead when the final table of the EPT Vienna Main Event began yesterday. He didn't only have the chance of taking down his first EPT Title and €700k - but also to regain the top spot on the all-time money list which he recently lost to Phil Ivey. But Daniel's dream was crushed after 10 hours of play and he ended up in 4th place.
After Daniel was out of the game it stood clear that an relatively unknown player would become the EPT Vienna Champ. It ended up being 20 year old Michael "mae9690" Eiler, an economics student and PokerStars Sunday Million winner, who took care of the first place prize of €700,000.
