Sergi Reixach took first place in the Super Highroller event at the EPT Barcelona. There were 64 entrances to the tournament. The first place prize was €1,816,210 and this is the biggest prize of Reixach’s career. In total he won over $2.6 million lifetime.
In a tense heads-up that lasted more than three hours, Sergi Reixach outlasts Sam Grafton. The first half of the tilt was all Grafton as he amassed a massive chip lead with some aggressive moves picking up pot after pot. At one point, Reixach was down to just 12 big blinds but found a miracle double up. Reixach got his chips in with two live cards against Grafton’s ace-king and managed to make a pair on the turn to keep his hopes alive.
That hands seemed to turn the tide as Reixach went on to win a few more key pots consecutively. One more double up after both players flopped top pair and Reixach found himself in the chip lead. Grafton fell all the way down to just eight big blinds and just when he was attempting a comeback of his own, Reixach was able to finish things off.
