Vanessa Selbst wins Partouche Poker Tour (1,3 million Euro)

After a quite long break, just like the 2010 WSOP Main Event, the final table of the prestige filled Partouche Poker Tour was played last weekend. It ended up being the American Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst who survived a field of 7 opponent and laid hands on the first prize of €1,300,000. Now you might wonder why the final table only included 8 players. The reason for this is that one of the players was disqualified from the tournament.

Ali Tekintamgac, the WPT Barcelona winner, has for a long time been accused of cheating, but no one has ever been able to prove anything - until a few days ago. The tournament crew went through video clips from the beginning of the tournament and found out that Tekintamgac had used false media representatives and bloggers to help him with information on his opponents hole cards. Let's just hope, for Ali Tekintamgac's own sake, that he wasn't cheating at WPT Barcelona as well.

420 players entered the EPT Tallinn Main Event this time. Day 1a and 1b of the tournament are both already in the books and at the moment 210 players are seated as Day 2 is about to start. In the top of the field are Perica Bukara 210,600, Ali Tekintamgac 203,200 and Matvey Linov 193,400 followed by many not so familiar faces. In general there were very few notables that took part in EPT Tallinn this year and unfortunately 2 of the biggest names were sent packing during the very first day of the tournament. I'm talking about the EPT veterans Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier and Dario Minieri. 

I have a feeling that we are going to see many new faces on the final table in the EPT Tallinn Main Event this year. But it doesn't mean that it will be a boring one to watch. A final table with lots of money up for grabs is always enjoyable to watch (at least if you ask me).
