The final table of the 2009 PokerStars European Poker Tour Barcelona main event began yesterday at 2 p.m. local time in the Catalan region of Spain. When the cards got into the air for the final day of the €8,000 buy-in no-limit hold'em event, Carter Phillips held the chip lead, with Marc Goodwin just behind in second place.

A large crowd of locals attended the final table to root on Spanish player Santiago Terrazas, and he did not disappoint them. He doubled up a few times which stirred the crowd into a frenzy of passionate cheering. Santiago's rally fell short however, and he eventually finished in third place. He was the last of six players who fell during four and a half hours of play that saw a lot of action before the heads-up final. After Terrazas hit the rail, things stood the same between Phillips and Goodwin as they did when play began.
The heads-up match was a long affair between two skilled opponents.

Phillips held the chip lead with 8,010,000, and Goodwin was trailing with 6,375,000. In the matchup between the U.S. and the U.K., the EPT title was claimed by the young American. By the end of their heads-up match, it was Phillips who held his first EPT title and €850,000 in prize money.
