Staff : October 11th, 2015


WSOP Europe kicks off, Avramidis wins Event #1. Is the GPL going to succeed, or will it be another Epic  Poker League? What’s preventing Florida from passing an online poker bill?

WSOP Europe underway in Berlin

Makarios Avramidis is the first bracelet winner of the 2015 World Series of Poker Europe tournament series taking place in Berlin, Germany. The German (by way of Greece) won Event #1, a €2,200 No-Limit Hold’em Six-Handed tournament by defeating a final table that included two very tough European pros, the UK’s Stephen Chidwick and Germany’s Marvin Rettenmaier.

Here’s a look at the final table payouts from the event:

1 – Makarios Avramidis – €105,000
2 – Frederic Schwarzer – €64,930
3 – Paul Michaelis – €45,860
4 – Stephen Chidwick – €32,600
5 – Rick Alvarado – €23,310
6 – Marvin Rettenmaier – €16,740
