Matt Glantz win’s EPT High Roller event

Monday, 5 October 2009

America’s Matt Glantz has prevented Erik Cajelais from earning an amazing WSOPE, EPT double after winning the £20,000 buy in High Roller event. Cajelais, who won the £2,500 Pot Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha bracelet at the Empire last week, was forced to settle for second in the EPT showpiece.

The key hand in heads up play saw all the chips go in with Glantz holding Jc8c and Cajeilas Ad7h on an AcAs3c board. The turn changed nothing but a 5c on the river gave Glantz the flush and put him firmly in the driving seat. The end came shortly afterwards with Glantz pairing an ace on the river for the win. He took home a first prize of £542,000 with Cajelais earning £326,000 by way of compensation.

The final positions and payouts were as follows:

1. Matt Glantz (United States) - £542,000
2. Erik Cajelais (Canada) - £326,000
3. Eugene Katchalov (United States) - £193,000
4. Adolfo Vaeza (Uruguay) - £141,000
5. Leo Fernandez (Argentina) - £104,000
6. Ilari Sahamies (Finland) - £74,000
7. Dennis Phillips (United States) - £60,000
8. Shane Reihill (Ireland) - £45,000

Joe Hachem confirmed his reputation as one of the game’s most versatile pros by taking down the European 8 Game Championship for a score of £42,400. In other early side events Germany’s Andreas Gulanay won the £1,000 Six-max tournament, Frenchman Fabrice Soulier won the £1,000 PLO Double Chance and Finn Iikka Tahkokallio won the £1,000 PLO / Pot Limit Hold’em title.
