Season four of the European Masters Of Poker has been going on quietly while some of the more popular have been getting all the attention. It is only fair to let you know that the winner on this occasion was the Russian Sergei Petrushin.
This event was being held at the Gran Casino in the city of Barcelona in Spain where the €1,100 event finally went to heads up between Petrushin and Josep Maria Galindo Lopez. Both Players decided to cut a deal with each other leaving just €10,000 extra going to the victor.
After a heads up session that lasted over two hours the final hand finally came, Petrushin raised to 200k before the flop Galiando decided to push all-in. Petrushin asked for a countdown just to establish whether or not he would still have any chips left once he called, once it was established he would he made that call.
Petrushin was holding the Kd-Qc whilst Lopez had the Ad-8h, though the board fell with a king on board as it read Kc-3c-3s-4d-2d giving Petrushin the pot, the title and that extra 10k to bring his winnings to € 56,875.
