Though most of the attention at the European Poker Tour Prague was on the two big events that were finished up last night, there were also a whole host of side events that were completed throughout the stop. We are going to take a look at the most notable of them to see which players took home some good scores in some of the more unfashionable events.
Event 7 – €5,000 + €300 PLO
The first EPT side event of note that took part was this Pot Limit Omaha event that brought in 71 players. The high buy-in ensured that there would be some big names taking part and there were not many bigger than the Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst who went on to win it for a payout of €100,000.
