We now know the EPT Berlin 2012 final table and it promises to be a good one. Finalists include the likes of Andrew Chen and David Kitai, both of whom have made final tables in previous European Poker Tour events.
Chen, a 24-year-old from Ontario, Canada, finished third at EPT Prague in Season 6 and was runner-up in a 2009 $1,500 WSOP side event. He came in 5th at the Season 6 EPT Grand Final and eventually went on to win his first major, the $5k Bounty Shoot-out at the PCA for $263,100. At this year’s PCA, he was runner-up in the PCA 6 Max High Roller for $191,984. Chen’s winnings on the live poker circuit now total over $2 million.
David Kitai ranks among Belgium’s top money makers in poker, totaling just over $1.8 million in live tournament winnings. This is Kitai’s second EPT final – he came third at EPT Barcelona in Season 5 for €455,000 – his best live result to date.
Others making the EPT Berlin 2012 final table included César "CesarSPA" García, 22, Las Palmas, Canary Islands. He was runner-up in the Sunday Million in August 2009 for $208,845 (his biggest score) and has also finished fourth in a $1k SCOOP re-buy event, fourth in the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up and won a $200 re-buy.
