Jake Cody outlasted a record-breaking field of 768-runners including two former World Champions and no fewer than 21 EPT winners to claim the EPT Deauville crown yesterday.
The 21-year-old from Rochdale was handily placed going into the final day and overcame a stiff challenge from Mike ‘Timex’ McDonald to set up a heads up encounter against Teodor Caraba. Cody, a former psychology student, put that education to good use, finally seeing off his Romanian opponent after two hours of head to head action. Caraba could have been forgiven for thinking that his AdKh was in good shape when Cody called his four-bet all in shove. Unfortunately, for Caraba, the young Englishman revealed a pair of Kings. The board brought no help for the Romanian leaving Cody to celebrate the biggest win of his fledgling poker career. Cody, who also wins a seat to the EPT Grand Final in Monte Carlo in April, said: “This is so overwhelming. It's the sort of stuff I dreamed about with my mates just a few weeks back. I feel like I should be asleep as I can't believe this is happening.” The final table positions and payouts were as follows: 1 Jake Cody UK €847,000 + EPT Grand Final seat2 Teodor Caraba Romania €516,0003 Mike McDonald Canada €295,0004 Craig Bergeron USA €221,0005 Claudiu Secara Romania €165,0006 Stephane AlbertiniFrance €129,0007 Michael Fratty France €92,0008 Peter Eastgate Denmark €70,000
