Ivan Freitez Dominates EPT Season Finale

By Ian Hiaring, Rakeback.com Poker News Staff Writer

EPT Grand Final Champ Ivan FreitezThe final table of the PokerStars European Poker Tour Grand Final was historic for a couple of reasons. For starters, it would mark the first time the Grand Final would be held outside of Monte Carlo. Spain was the host of this year’s Final, with action taking place at the lovely Casino Gran Madrid. Secondly, the final table was broadcast on live television across the continent as well as streamed live on the internet, making for a very unique final table.

Venezuelan Ivan Freitez dominated the final table beginning the day as the chip leader, a title that he would only relinquish once throughout the day. Freitez had a very vocal set of supporters on the rail and he didn’t fail to disappoint them, winning first place and taking home €1.5 million for his efforts.

As if the final table wasn’t historic enough, Freitez made even more history as he became the first Latin American to hoist an EPT trophy.

In the end, Freitez found himself heads-up with German Torsten Brinkmann standing between him and the EPT Grand Final Championship. Freitez held nearly a 4-1 chip advantage and ground his opponent down to only a few million before finally winning a race to sew things up once and for all.
