Martin Finger Wins 2013 EPT London For £821k

Martin Finger Wins 2013 EPT London For £821kMartin Finger has won the 2013 European Poker Tour London £50,000 Super High Roller, after besting a field of 57 players over three days to lift the title, and collect the £821,000 ($1,315,817) first place prize. With his latest victory at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London, the 23-year-old German poker pro now boasts $3,732,048 in live tournament winnings.
Finger started the final table as the chip leader and commenting after his impressive win at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London, said: “It made me pretty confident but I just tried to play my best poker and keep going on like the first two days. I thought I had a pretty good chance to win and finally I did..It feels awesome. The field of a Super High Roller is so tough; tough to beat all of them in one tournament.”
By the time the final table of eight had been reached, Martin Finger was just one of four Germans still left in contention for the EPT title, including Johannes Strassmann, Christoph Vogelsang, and Tobias Reinkemeier. Also competing was Patrik Antonius, who was then first to exit in 8th (£109,455), followed soon after by 2013 November Niner David Benefield in 7th (€139,600), whose pocket jacks fell to Reinkemeier’s A-K.
Next to fall was Canadian pro Timothy Adams in 6th (€175,200), Johannes Strassmann in 5th (€224,400), and after billionaire businessman Bill Perkins finished in 4th (€290,100), the three remaining podium spots were filled by German players.
Martin Finger (A-K) subsequently eliminated Christoph Vogelsang (Q-6) in 3rd (€383,200) and Tobias Reinkemeier heads-up to eliminate a total of four of the finalists from the tournament and claim his third major title.
