With no chance of claiming the €880,000 on offer for winning this year’s EPT Berlin Main Event, 237 players decided to ante-up €2,000 to take part in a turbo side event.
Generating a prizepool of more than €450,000 and a top prize of €131,000, a sea of talent washed over the felt’s inside Berlin’s Spielbank. After taking more time than some players anticipated a final table emerged and among those vying for the title were Chris Moorman, Taylor “taypaur” Paur, Griffin Benger and Rhys Jones. The stacked final table produced a number of fireworks but as the action developed it was Chris Moorman who became the most dominant player. Indeed, as Paur hit the rail in 5th for €26,600, it was Jones who was next to fall in 4th place for €32,000. With Moorman being the most experienced player left in the final three it looked as though he was on his way to another EPT side event title. However, after running into an opponent who seemingly couldn’t lose an all-in, the Brit had to settle for second place and just over €70,000.
