EPT Prague winner arrested by the police

Posted on 18 December 2011 by "T".

Recently Martin Finger, 21, from Germany won the EPT Prague main event and received a huge prize of 720k euro. Finger became the third German poker player ever to win an EPT main event and received lots of positive feedback in the media.

However, it didn't take long before his big win became overshadowed by other headlines. During EPT London, according to a poker news site, Finger went out to party after the tournament, got drunk and behaved aggressively. After Finger left the exclusive club Kensington Roof Garden in central London, he broke into a restaurant to get himself some food. But the heavy night came to an end quickly as the British police arrived at the scene and arrested him. It remains unclear what charges Martin Finger will face. If he gets away with paying some fines, the EPT Prague winnings might come in handy.

The 2011 EPT Prague main event has come to an end (the largest EPT Prague ever). The winner, Martin Finger from Germany, received amazing €720,000 for his achievement, and the runner-up, David Boyaciyan from Netherlands, received €535,000.

When the heads-up begun, Finger had a 4-1 chip lead over Boyaciyan and everyone thought that it wouldn't take long before he had all the chips. But Boyaciyan fought really hard and well and after 3,5 hours of play he had overtaken the lead from Martin Finger, who was in shock and tried to figure out what he was doing wrong.
