Martin Schleich Wins 2011 EPT Barcelona


The tournament circuit entrant bottom has to fall out eventually, right?

Well, it didn’t happen at the 2011 EPT Barcelona Main Event.

Last year’s event pulled in 758, creating a first place prize of €825,000. This year’s post-4/15 tournament brought in 811 and generated a first place prize of €850,000.

Martin Schleich of Germany took it down. This is Schleich’s first major live score (previous cashes here). He defeated Dragan Kostic* (€532,000) heads-up up for the title.

Continuing his sick two-ish year run was Eugene Katchalov with €315,000. All Katchalov does is make final tables…

Saar Wilf finished sixth (€145,000) and Isabel Baltazar, a woman, finished eight (€73,000).

* Not a real Dragan.

    I think you might have meant “Aryan”.

    Arian – “One who is born under the sign of Aries.”

    Aryan – “The Aryan race is a concept historically influential in Western culture in the period of the late 19th century and early 20th century. It derives from the idea that the original speakers of the Indo-European languages and their descendants up to the present day constitute a distinctive race or subrace of the larger Caucasian race.”
