Hossein Ensan Wins EPT Prague Main Event

Tags: EPT Prague, Hossein Ensan.
Posted on 17 December 2015 by "T".

Hossein Ensan, 51, was unknown to most people in the poker world before winning an EPT Seniors Event in Barcelona last year. He used some of his winnings to a live satellite that eventually took him to the EPT Barcelona Main Event in which he finished in third place. Then he finished 6th in the EPT Malta Main Event a few months later.

On Wednesday, he played his third EPT Main Event final table in 16 months. He started with the second smallest stack but ended the day (after 11 hours of play) as the champion after eliminating three-time WCOOP champion Gleb Tremzin in second place with pocket aces.

Hossein Ensan, originally from Iran but moved to Germany at age 25, is definitely not the the poster boy for the modern poker championships. However, he has shown that anything is possible in the poker world - regardless of how old one is when beginning to play major poker tournaments! 

"I think poker is for all people," Ensan said. "I am young too. I am having fun. This organization, the PokerStars organization, the camera people, the fans, that makes it fun."

Third final table in EPT Event in last 16 months. Great result. But I don't like this deal before heads up (only 30k more for the winner).

Very pleasant German, always with pleasure I look as he plays, himself the professional doesn't consider when not зазнаётся and always sympathizes with the player who took off, here of whom it is necessary to follow an example.....
