Busquet Triumphant In E.p.t. Barcelona Super High Roller

New York poker pro bests a field of 77 to claim the Euro 896,434 main prize

The respected American poker professional Oliver Busquet has emerged victorious in the Euro 50,000 buy-in Super High Roller event in the one hundredth European Poker Tour leg in Barcelona.
The entry field of 77 passed the previous event record of 64, and was distilled to a final table that seated Busquet and Daniel Colman of Big One for One Drop fame, Vladimir Troyanovskiy, Scott Seiver, Sam Trickett, Sven Reichardt, Morten Klein and hedge fund manager Dan Shak.
The hard-fought heads up saw Busquet pitted against the formidable and poker-faced Dan Colman, recently in the headlines following his multi-million dollar cash in the Big One for One Drop tourney at the World Series of Poker.
In the final stages of a tough and competitive battle, the duo agreed a chop that gave the winner Euro 896,434 and the runner up Euro 843,066. When play resumed after the negotiation, it was Busquet who took the honours and the main prize, boosting his career earnings to almost $6 million.
Other final table pay-outs looked like this:
Vladimir Troyanovskiy Euro 473,200
Scott Seiver Euro 364,200
Sam Trickett Euro 288,400
Sven Reichardt Euro 225,500
Morten Klein Euro 177,500
Dan Shak Euro 138,600

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
