Charlie Carrel Triumphs At EPT Dublin €10,300 High Roller

A total of 66 players entered the EPT Dublin €10,300 Single-Day High Roller, which combined with 23 re-entries helped create a prize pool worth €863,300. By the end of the day’s action, it was subsequently UK pro Charlie Carrel who would triumph over the field, and Dominik Nitsche heads-up, to claim the title, as well as €164,500 ($185,104) in prize money.
Charlie Carrel only cashed in at his first live tournament in April 2014, eventually finishing the year with $186,221 in winnings. In 2015, that figure rose to $1,509,380, of which $1,241,682 was courtesy of his victory at the Monte Carlo €25,500 High Roller event, and already in 2016 Carrel has added a further $507,974 to his bankroll, with the pro now having amassed $2,203,575 in career earnings.
At the seat of his latest success, Charlie Carrel had to navigate his way past a tough field which included the likes of Steve O’Dwyer, Mustapha Kanit, and Mike McDonald, before competing at a final table filled with a whole host of familiar faces, including Mark Radoja, Jeff Rossiter, and Dominik Nitsche.
Carrel then proceeded to eliminate Viacheslav Goryachev in 9th and Paul-Francois Tedeschi in 5th, while Mark Radoja went on a rampage taking care of Senh Ung (8th), Jeff Rossiter (7th), Demetrio Barreca (6th), and Francois Billard (4th), before being eliminated himself by Dominik Nitsche in 3rd for €144,180.
On the final hand of their heads-up battle, Charlie Carrel (A-A) and Dominik Nitsche (A-Q) then got all there chips in preflop, and after the dealer laid out a J-10-5-4-8 board, Nitsche had to settle for a runner-up finish, while Carrel claimed the coveted EPT title.
Final Table Results:
1: Charlie Carrel (UK) €164,500
2: Dominik Nitsche (Germany) €139,450
3: Mark Radoja (Canada)
4: Francois Billard (Canada) €128,120
