Fabian Quoss wins 2010 English Poker Open for £220,650

Wednesday, 15 September 2010

The 2010 £3,650 English Poker Open received a small but not tiny field when 194 players stumped up the cash, including Phil Laak, Liv Boeree and a host of other pros. Only the two mentioned made it into the money but both busted before the final table and proceeded to survive Day 1 of the WSOPE £2,650 6-max event.

The final table of the EPO was decided the day before yesterday and last night saw the final nine go at it on the felt for six hours. In the first hour, four of the nine players were felted and hit the rail with a juicy payday as chip leader Mathew Frankland dwindled and both Fabian Quoss and Sebastiaan Crul built stacks.

After just over three hours we were left with those three players remaining and playing towards the first prize of more than £220,000. Frankland was eliminated by Cruul holding J8 on a J-x-x flop; it was useless against the K-J of Crul who faced Quoss heads-up for the George Trophy and the six-figure payday.

In the end he got his own six-figure payday when his A-5 couldn’t outdraw Quoss’s dominating A-Q on an A-K-8 board. He received £129,000 for his second-place finish. The full final table payouts were as follows:

1. Fabian Quoss - £220,650
2. Sebastiaan Crul - £129,000
3. Mathew Frankland - £77,400
4. Felipe Ramos - £54,300
5. Andrew Brennan - £40,750
6. Brent Lehring - £30,550
7. Mark Norman - £23,750
8. Salman Behbehani - £17,000
9. Stephen Chimelski - £13,600
