Interview with EPT 100 Barcelona Main Event Winner: Entrevista a Andre Lettau

Below are interviews with Germany’s Andre Lettau, both in England and in Espanol. 

The 27-year-old online pro won the record-breaking 100th EPT Main Event in Barcelona for a life-changing first prize of €794,058.  This was his first European Poker Tour.

A three-way deal with runner-up Sam “buckguy 2200” Phillips, an American PokerStars qualifier, and third-placed Hossein Ensan, also from Germany, gave the lion’s share of the prize to Phillips.
The American is a PokerStars SuperNova who has won over $3m in online tournaments and received €1,021,275. Phillips’ achievements include chopping the WCOOP Challenge Sunday Warm-up last December and making two WCCOP final tables, however this is by far his biggest live cash.

EPT100 broke so many records it’s been hard to keep track of them all. The 2,560-strong field in the €1,100 Estrellas Poker Tour main event, won by Matias Ruzzi for €198,550, was the largest live PokerStars freezeout. The €50k Super High Roller, won by American pro Olivier Busquet for €896,434, attracted a record 77 total entries. The €10k EPT High Roller event had a staggering 393 entries, 295 unique players and a prize pool of €3,851,400, with Belarus player Ihar Soika beating Team PokerStars Pro Jason Mercier heads-up in that event to snag the €747,200 first prize. The inaugural €300 Barcelona Cup, won by Luca Faggioli for €101,000, had 2,095 players making it the fourth largest PokerStars event of all time (after the Beijing Millions, Estrellas main event and Brazil Series of Poker Millions). Women's Events in Season 11 will have a reduced buy-in of €200 and this helped attract a record 102 players. The inaugural Seniors Event, for players aged 50+, had 85 players while Sunday’s €200 Win the Button had 342 players making it the biggest Nightly Turbo in EPT history.
