Mokrani Wins High Roller EPT Event

Mokrani Wins High Roller EPT Event

There are several poker tournaments out there, but none of them get the attention of the European Poker Tour. The most recent event took place in Paris at the Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile, and it lasted more than 15 grueling hours.

The titans of poker took on each other only for Mokrani and Marchetti to face one another in the final. Mokrani turned out to be the better poker player as the Frenchman got the bigger slice of the €1,747,200 prize. In other words, the Frenchman walked away with €305,300 and Marchetti took €190,500.

It’s no secret that Mokrani was pretty aggressive in his approach as he took care of 9 opponents to get to the final stage. When the event continued, 134 players remained, and they would be outed brutally in a succession of wins and losses. Hasson and Reard decided they weren’t going to stick around.

Survival of the Fittest

Okada, Suarez, and Loosli were next on the list and for a while, Ha dominated the table. He took care of Pais and Yaghami, but his fortune didn’t last during the final 5 tables. Bise and Baumann didn’t make it to the 3 final tables and after that, they were joined by Lybaert. Delfoco outed Lybaert with the flip as his pocket nines dominated the ace-king hand. Obreshkov and Czuczor ran out of chips.

Machado took a few victories, but he didn’t last against Mokrani. After that victory, Mokrani was the head honcho of the table and outed Delfoco. His winning streak ended as Spasov took care of Massaro, but it was only a matter of time before he was beaten by Mokrani.

In the end, Mokrani and Marchetti were the ones left on the table. During the early hours of the tournament, only 10 hands remained to determine a winner. Mokrani is now the champion of the event as his domination proved to be the way to go about it. Many favorites didn’t make it to the final round, but the finals are reserved for the most skilled players, so maybe they’ll do better next time.

Conclusion

The European Poker Tour FPS High-Roller event in Paris was won by Mokrani. The Frenchman dominated the table and had the highest number of chips during the final stages. He outed a couple of players and was left with Marchetti. And he made quick work of him too.
