The action is done and dusted at the PokerStars EPT Prague. It was an exciting event all-around, and it wrapped up with the Main Event final table that did not disappoint. When it was all said and done, it was Canada’s Jordan Saccucci lifting up the prestigious trophy and taking home €913,000 for his tremendous efforts.
There is no denying that poker gods favored Saccucci with card distribution, but he played his part masterfully, taking full advantage of the good fortune. To etch his place in poker history, the Canadian had to outlast a record-breaking field of 1267 entries.
In the end, it was down to him and Antoine Saout, a French professional with an impressive resume that includes not one but two November Nine appearances at the World Series of Poker.
The players reached a deal when they were down to heads up, locking up €800,000 each, but there was still a six-figure difference left to play for on top of the coveted EPT trophy. So, neither Saout nor Saccucci would give up without a fight.
In the end, Saccuci managed to strike the final blow, winning the final all-in to add an EPT win to his resume and take the coveted title back home to Canada.
