EPT Grand Final: The European Poker Tour has crowned a champion in its Grand Final main event. Mohsin ‘chicagocards1′ Charania won the tournament for €1,350,000. Get a recap here. A woman and an online qualifier, Lucille Cailly, came in second.

Daniel Negreanu and Phil Ivey are currently second and third in the chip counts, while Justin Bonomo and Noah Schwartz are still alive as well. Bonomo won the €100K Super High Roller event at the Grand Final already.

PTR solves its problem: The website PokerTableRatings, which was forced to take down profiles of PokerStars players by the online poker site, is back in business with PTR Link. Players can now opt into PTR’s service, and apparently this makes PokerStars happy. And all was right with the world again.
