This keeps the Portuguese businessman at the top of the charts in the race towards the EPT award for Player of The Year. So far this season Brito has had some fantastic results on the EPT, many in side events on the Tour, such as the €10,000 buy-in event in Vienna where he beat Rob Hollink heads up for €90,000. He also finished in sixth place for £145,000 in the main event at EPT London.

In other EPT Prague news, Swede Nichlas Mattson beat Irishman John O’Shea heads up in the €10,000 buy-in event for a nice payday of €127,000. O’Shea also finished sixth in the €1,000 mixed game event when he was put out at the hands of Dario Alioto.

Team PokerStars Pro Max Lykov walked away with the top prize of €24,400 after beating 67 players in the €1,000 event; British pro Richard Gryko beat Russian Nikolay Evdakov in the €3,200 Heads-Up event for €34,000; and finally, Croatian Hana Soljan was crowned queen of the €330 Ladies event and received €3,750 after beating her final opponent, EPT Tallinn ladies event champ Anastasiia Syvak.
