Final table saw representatives hailed from eight different nations
The European Poker Tour Barcelona was decided over the weekend, with Kent Lundmark (22) of Sweden taking the honours and the Euro 825,000 first prize after a heads up against Jesus Cortes Lizano of Spain.
When the heads up started Lundmark held a 2 million chip advantage, and he managed to largely hold on to his lead and dominate the action. Cortes took home Euro 525,000.
The multi-national final table comprised Lundmark of Sweden and Cortes of Spain, along with Russian ace Konstantin Puchkov; Shander De Vries from Holland; Germany's Giuseppe Pantaleo; Thor Stang of Norway; Greek player Georgios Skotadis; and Italy's Francesco Notaro. The six-figure payouts extended down to sixth place.
The win was the biggest yet in live tourneys for Lundmark, who is an accomplished online poker player. His previous best live performance was in January this year at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event, where he won $66,000.
