Euro 251,500 prize following two-way chop
Barcelona continued to be the epicentre of international poker action this week with the conclusion of more competitions.
In the Estrellas Barcelona High Roller event Austrian online and live poker pro Stefan "mindgamer" Jedlicka bested a record field of 1,182 to claim the honours and a diluted main prize (following a two-way chop) of Euro 251,500.
Jedlicka and Brazilian pro Felipe Da Costa had dominated play in the event and it was not surprising that they ended up facing each other in the heads up, whereupon they paused to negotiate a chop, with Da Costs holding the most chips.
However it was Jedlicka who managed to emerge the victor, leaving Da Costs with a second placing but a larger share of the spoils at Euro 268,950.
Other final table cashes included:
* Josip Simunic Austria Euro 177,960
* Vladimir Geshkenbein Russia Euro 143,240
* Jordan Kaplan USA Euro 115,900
* Michael Cano Austria Euro 88,900
* Stefan Huber Switzerland Euro 62,490
* Oleg Titov Russia Euro 45,150
