Connor Drinan Claims E.p.t. High Roller

591 entries for Euro 10,300 buy-in event

In a tough competition against top players in the Euro 10,300 buy-in European Poker Tour High Roller event in Barcelona, US poker pro Conan Drinan bested a field of 571 to claim the Euro 849,200 top prize over the weekend.
When US pro Kyle Keranen bowed out at third for Euro 496,440, Drinan and Latvian pro Mihails Morozovs faced off with pretty much equal chip stacks in the heads up, a battle that was to rage for an hour before Drinan was finally able to put the Latvian away and send him to the exit and a Euro 616,840 runner up pay-day.
Other cashes awarded to the finalists included:
Oleksii Khoroshenin Ukraine Euro 396,700
Ari Engel USA Euro 307,900
Joseph Cheong USA Euro 233,300
Patrick Leonard United Kingdom Euro 169,700
Pascal Hartmann Germany Euro 124,400

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.
