European

The European Poker Tour made its annual visit to London’s Victoria Casino, with the main event starting on the 25th September lasting for four days.  Well over 300 entrants started out the £5,200 buy-in event with a lot of the familiar faces on the EPT tour spotted around the card room.

When we reached the final table stage at the end of day three, Florian Langmann was heading the field in the chip rankings with £927,000 in chips, not far ahead of Joseph Mouawad in second place with £780,000.  Fredrick Haugen was the man on the short stack but still had time to wait till he made his move having £190,000.

Final Table Chip Rankings:

  • 1st Florian Langmann £927,000
  • 2nd Joseph Mouawad £780,000
  • 3rd Marcel Baran £583,000
  • 4th Josh Egan £477,000
  • 5th Anthony Lellouche $466,000
  • 6th Paul Mendes £282,000
  • 7th Ian Cox £234,000
  • 8th Fredrik Haugen £190,000

The final table sprung into life right from the start with some big action in the first few hands.  Ian Cox was the first player to be eliminated making a stand with his small stack with :kc :7h and was called by Florian Langmann with :kd :3c The board paired Langmann’s three, and this was good enough to take down the pot with the final board showing :qd :3d :2h :8h :6h

Paul Mendes was the next player to go shortly after moving All In with :ks :10h on the short stack, he found himself  dominated  against Anthony Lellouche calling with :ac :kh The Flop came down :ad :4d :3d leaving Mendes needing help on the last two cards to survive.  The :6h on the Turn meant Mendes was drawing dead on the River and he headed for the rail to collect £77,459 in 7th place.

This win had put Lellouche on a healthy chip stack, but he threw it all away, raising All In with :7s :3s and was caught out by Marcel Baran calling with pocket Sevens.  The board came down :2d :2s :10c :jh :9c giving Baran the pot, leaving Lellouche wondering exactly what he had done pressing the self destruct button from a good position as he made his exit.

Not long after Fredrik Haugen made an All In move with :as :jc and looked to be in a good position with Langmann calling with :qd :10h The Flop paired Langmann’s Ten coming down :7d :kc :10d but Haugen had outs with a gun shot straight draw and two over cards than the Ten.  The :10c on the Turn changed the whole outlook of the hand leaving Haugen drawing dead on the River going out in 5th place collecting £124,342 in prize money.

Langmann increased his chip stack considerably taking the chip lead, by eliminating two more opponents in quick succession.  First he took out Josh Egan with pocket Aces against Egan’s :kd :js and the final board came down :9c :js :7d :2s :5d Then he knocked out his fellow countryman Baran with :ks :7h against pocket Fours.  Langmann paired his King on the Flop and Baran never recovered going out in 3rd place collecting £203,840.

Heads up play between Langmann and Mouawad started off cautiously and this seemed to play into the hands of  Mouawad’s with his style of play.  He gradually took control of the table taking a 3-1 chip lead, and then finally ending proceedings after 1hr and 15 minutes of heads up play.  The final hand came when Langmann moved All In with :8s :9s after the Flop came down :6h :9d :qd Mouawad quickly called with :qc :3c having top pair.  The :qs left Langmann drawing dead on the River giving Mouawad the UK EPT 2007 title and the £611,520 first place prize.

Final Standings:

  • 1st Joseph Mouawad £611,520
  • 2nd Florian Langmann £346,528
  • 3rd Marcel Baran £203,000
  • 4th Josh Egan £152,880
  • 5th Fredrik Haugen £124,342
  • 6th Anthony Lellouche £97,843
  • 7th Paul Mendes £77,459
  • 8th Ian Cox £57,075
