The Main Event was won by Ireland’s Steve O’Dwyer for €1,224,000. It was the 31-year-old’s fourth appearance on an EPT Main Event final table in 18 months. Steve Silverman won the €25,000 High Roller event for €775,400 while German player Ole Schemion won three side events – the €1k Win the Button, the €5k Pot-Limit Omaha and the €10k High Roller Turbo.

More than 1,200 players took part in this season’s Grand Final and there were more than 4,200 total entries creating an overall prize pool of more than €18 million. Season 9 of the EPT was one of the most spectacular so far, with seven stops in Europe plus the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in the Bahamas. In all, there have been more than 44,000 tournament entries this season and nearly €95,000,000 awarded in prizes.

EPT Season 10 will kick off with the EPT Barcelona Festival running August 28-September 7, 2013, and will be followed by six further major events in Europe as well as the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in the Bahamas in January 2014. Each event will be a spectacular “can’t-miss” Festival of Poker featuring a massive range of events for players of all kinds.
