Reinkemeier Claims Victory At EPT Monte Carlo High Roller
May 3, 2022
The two players occupying the top two spots on most 2010 Player of the Year ranking lists, Canada’s Sorel Mizzi and the US’ Tom Marchese, both made the PokerStars European Poker Tour Monte Carlo High Roller final table recently, but it was the lesser known but still highly respected German, Tobias Reinkemeier, who quickly took it down, earning over $1.2 Million US in the process.

Reinkemeier, who previously took sixth at another prestigious EPT High Roller event during the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, needed to survive only five levels to claim the last major EPT title of Season 6, thanks to tough aggressive players like Mizzi, Marchese, Allen Bari and Olivier Busquet stimulating the action.  Of all those other players, Busquet lasted the longest against Reinkemeier, but eventually came to rest in second overall when his Ace-Two was unable to overcome Reinkemeier’s pocket Queens. 

For his second place finish Busquet earned €597,600- or about $790,000 US- his biggest cash since his 2009 World Poker Tour Borgata Poker Open win in September.

The final table finish positions for the 2010 PokerStars EPT Monte Carlo High Roller were as follows:

1st.  Tobias Reinkemeier- €956,000

2nd.  Olivier Busquet- €597,600

3rd.  Dori Yacoub- €358,500

4th.  Tom Marchese- €263,000

5th.  Paul Berende- €191,200

6th.  Sorel Mizzi- €143,400

7th.  Allen Bari- €109,900

8th.  Michael Friedrich- €81,300
