German Ali Tekintamgac has been crowned the World Poker Tour Spanish Open Champion after outlasting a 326-runner field in Barcelona of the weekend.
The 40-year-old sealed the win by defeating Spanish movie director and long time chip leader Roberto Santiago heads up. Tekintamgac went into two handed play with a five to one chip advantage and didn't take long to seal the biggest win of his career. After Santiago had gone all in with 9d8h the German made the call holding Qc5c. A flop of KhAh5h helped both players but the missing heart didn't appear on either the turn or river leaving Tekintamgac celebrating with a first place prize of €315,000 plus a Tiffany bracelet and a seat in the $25,000 WPT Championship. Not bad for someone playing in only his second ever live event.The final table positions and payouts were as follows:1st Ali Tekintamgac €315,000 2nd Roberto Santiago €160,000 3rd Mats Iremark €81,000 4th Manuel Blaschke €71,000 5th Mads Hansen €61,000 6th Tristan Clemençon €51,000 7th Emil Mattsson €41,000 8th Bartolome Romero €31,000 9th Manuel Cozar €21,400
