And the Masters of America Winner Is…

October 4, 2011

The third season of the European Masters of Poker is going strong. Its most recent stop in Spain saw Norwegian poker player Andreas Hagen take the championship title after outlasting 454 other players recently in Barcelona at the Gran Casino. He landed €90,310 for his win, but he did cut a deal when he went heads up against Robin Appell. The two decided that Hagen would take €80,310 and Appell would get €70,310, and the two would play for the last €10,000. In just 15 minutes, Hagen had a hand worthy of a 400,000 bet, and Appell went all in. Hagen’s pocket 7s landed him a full house when the board was dealt: A/5/2/5/7. Appell’s K/6 didn’t stand a chance.

The European Masters of Poker tour continues now to Riga, Latvia, where play will commence at the Royal Casino Spa & Hotel. This will be the last stop and will from November 17th through November 20th. Entraction Network poker rooms are running qualifiers right now. The buy-in is €1,650, but online qualifiers are running for as little as €2.
