An exciting day of high roller action has reached its conclusion after fifteen hours of play in the PokerStars and Barcelona© Casino European Poker Tour with the €50,000 Single-Day High Roller II, which attracted 62 entries and had a total prize pool of €3,007,620.
Poker fans will not be surprised at all to see that the winner was Michael Addamo , who conquered yet another high roller, this time for €917,330.
It is hard even to know where to start with Addamo’s accomplishments as he has obliterated most fields he has entered in recent years. This title brings Addamo’s career earnings to nearly $20.8 million as he continues to surge up the all-time money list with no signs of slowing down.
It is also his third big win in Spain this year as he won two Triton Series events in Madrid back in May, combining for €1.5 million with one being a seven-figure score; indicating that his game has had no issues translating to Europe. He confirmed as much after the fact when he was asked what it has been like to get his European poker sea legs under him in recent months by stating that the fields are pretty similar to what he has been used to.
Outside of poker, Addamo has been enjoying his time in the great city of Barcelona as well, “I love Barcelona as a city. I actually went to a Spanish fiesta last night and was able to enjoy it”.
