The 2019 PokerStars European Poker Tour Barcelona €5,300 Main Event has crowned a new champion at Casino Barcelona and it was Simon Brandstrom that came out on top of a record-breaking field of 1,988 entries to lift one of the most coveted trophies on the international poker circuit. Brandstrom takes home the trophy and €1,290,166, while the second runner-up finish of Czuczor is sweetened with a payday of €1,253,234. For both players it’s a record winnings in live tournaments.
Brandstrom had a hard time throughout the tournament, even though he started the final day as the chipleader.“I made a comeback on Day 1 and was down to 12k and spun it up a bit. And last night I was down to nine bigs with 15 players left and made a big rush from there, ended up as the chip leader. Marton played very good. I probably didn’t play my A-Game but the cards came my way,” Brandstrom added.
