Chris Brewer Wins €25k and €50k EPT Paris High Rollers 22 Feb

Just four days after his one of the biggest live career wins in €25,000 Single-Day High Roller for €357,180, Chris Brewer managed to one-up his result with a back-to-back high roller win in €50,000 EPT Paris Super High Roller event.

And it was a big one. Actually, by far the biggest of his career with a payday of €959,520 (~$1,026,159)!

The first high roller had a field of 44 players and was a single day tournament, which lasted about 15 hours. Brewer beat Felipe Ketzer in heads-up for his second EPT title since last year’s EPT in Prague. The bubble boy of the high roller was representative Kayhan Mokri, who jumped into the tournament after his 2nd place in the opening €10,200 Mystery Bounty event.

The €50k Super High Roller was a three-day event with 68 entries. Chris Brewer entered the final table in the middle of a pack, but was down to only 10 big blinds at some point. First, he doubled up through Dimitar Danchev and short after he eliminated him in 6th place with pocket aces against AQo.

The stacks were even five handed, but as the play went through, Brewer fell behind once again and needed two double ups to get back into the game. In the meantime, Nick Petrangelo got knocked out in 3rd place and heads-up battle between Jules Dickerson and Chris Brewer could commence.

Even though players were even in chips, it was a very short one as Chris won a big pot with quad 8s that left Dickerson crippled and it was all over next hand.

"It feels great," said Brewer to Pokernews after the win. "It was a pretty tough field. I mean, I ran amazing, and it was really fun to get to win twice this week. This one feels better. I mean, the other one is a single-day 25K. This is a big one. It's also the biggest cash I've ever had by a pretty big margin."
