Charlie Carrell Wins EPT Grand Final €25k High Roller (€1,114,000)

Posted on 11 May 2015 by "T".

The €25,000 buy-in High Roller attracted 215 entries (162 players and 53 re-entries) that created a massive €5,267,500 prize pool. At the end of it all, on Friday night, it was 21-year-old Charlie Carrel who stood tall as the winner after overcoming an extremely tough final table (Steve O'Dwyer and Max Altergott, Dan Smith etc.).

The Brit made a name for himself in the poker world in 2014 by topping a field of 212 entries for £108,625 in the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour Grand Final. Around two months ago he finished fifth in the EPT Malta €10k High Roller for €183,800... and last Friday he boosted his career total with an increadible €1,114,000. However, he won't get to keep all of the money from his most recent victory...

"This is the first event that I've properly sold action in and I am extremely excited to give a chunk of this away to my friends and that's what makes me feel happiest from this," he explained to PokerStars Blog, "I get to prove to them that I was a good investment and give them back what they invested in me and more," he added.

I hadn't really seen much of this guy before but looked him up after noticing him in this and he has had a very good 12 months.
At only 21 he has got a good chance of making it big in the poker world and this tournament had some of the best players involved.I don't know how much of the action he sold but hopefully not too much.....I doubt he will have a hard job in finding backers in the future.

Many congratulations to Charlie Carrell on winning this high roller event and taking home the massive first prize of over a million. Especially nice to see a British player winning a big tournament

Ahahaha, he barely won anything yet and he is already selling his actions. I mean I thought that these deals are for the players who need some base money/insurance to kick it off/more, not 4 the ones who were already successfull in his own. It's kinda funny too that his friends were the ones buying shares. Truly the best way to ruin friendships is to involve them in your financies.
