Moritz Kranich wins EPT Deauville

Moritz Kranich wins EPT Deauville

Monday, 26 January 2009

We’re finding it very hard to write this article about an EPT final table featuring five French players (which sounds like a line from The 12 Days of Christmas) as Bluff Europe’s online editor hails from that region.

Joke-resisting and garlic-referencing aside, it was a German who defeated the French armada to take down the EPT title in Deauville. Oh, and €851,400. That’s just over £800,000 – nice result.

Oddly-named Moritz Kranich began heads-up play against France’s Arnaud Esquevin with a 6-1 chip lead. In the last hand he had a dominating A7 against the Frenchman’s A3. Both paired their ace on the river but Esquevin had failed to hit his kicker, meaning the title was shipped the way of ze German.
