While Ramzi Jelassi may not quite be in the Luca Pagano league when it comes to cashing in EPT events, the Swede has made the money in 10 events without ever winning a title. Until now that is.
The Stockholm-native pocketed a massive first prize of €835,000 after outlasting a field of 864-runners in Prague. The 26-year-old went into the final table with the chip lead and eventually claimed the title after three hours of heads up play with Sotirios Koutoupas, sealing victory when his A-J held against the Greek's 10-9.“It feels amazing,” said Jelassi. “We played a long time. Yes, I’ve realized I’ve won but it will take a few days to settle in. I don’t really feel like I’ve won yet, but I’m really happy.”Dutch banker David Boyacian, who was involved in some heated discussions regarding a potential deal which eventually cost him €100,000, finished in third with Brit Ben Warrington earning €250,000 for his fourth place finish.The final table positions and payouts were as follows:1 Ramzi Jelassi €835,0002 Sotirios Koutoupas €510,0003 David Boyaciyan €310,0004 Ben Warrington €250,0005 Diego Gomez €196,0006 Sergey Kuzminskiy €150,0007 Aleh Plauski €108,4008 Mark Herm €75,0009 Mariusz Klosinski €53,000Marvin Rettenmaier was the other big winner at EPT Prague after winning the €10k High Roller. The German outlasted a stacked final table that included Jason Mercier, Juha Helppi, Sorel Mizzi and Fabian Quoss to walk away with a first prize of €363,300.The EPT leaves European shores for its next stop with the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure running from 5-14 January 2013.
