You may remember a week ago we revealed that PokerStars were allowing fans to vote through YouTube on which has been the most memorable moment on the EPT over the past ten seasons.
It has been celebration time for both PokerStars and the European Poker Tour after reaching a milestone of a ten seasons since the tour began. Then, the EPT Barcelona was not only the Season 11 opener but also the host of the 100th Main Event on the tour, which was yet more reason for celebration.
This led to PokerStars asking players and fans alike to vote on the Most Memorable EPT Moments throughout those ten years.
Among the eight nominations was PokerStars Team Pro Daniel Negreanu reading his opponent perfectly during the EPT London back in season 7, fellow Team Pro Jason Mercier making a superb call to win the EPT Sanremo in Season 4 and a talked about hand between PokerStars Team Pro Vanessa Selbst and Kevin MacPhee at the EPT Berlin in Season 8.
The votes came in thick and fast and it was close between the top two for quite some time but the winner was finally revealed today.
Could it ever been anyone else but PokerStars Team Pro Victoria Coren? For becoming the first player last season to win two European Poker Tour Main Events after she took down the EPT Sanremo Main Event last season. That moment was pushed all the way by Daniel Negreanu pure genius at the tables but in the end the popularity of that emotional moment eventually shone through.
We may be biased as she is British and we did vote for her but you all have to agree that she is a very deserving winner. Not only was she the first woman to win an EPT Main Event she fittingly became the first player of either gender to nail down a second. You could not have written the script any better.

Now that we are into the second decade with the European Poker Tour, we can only expect many more memorable moments in the future. Whether any come close to that of Coren is another matter however, unless she wins a third of course!
