With The 2016 CPPT St. Maarten Only A Month Away We Look Back At last Year's Final Table


The 2016 Card Player Poker Tour St. Maarten festival, hosted by Card Player Cruises, is just a month away from kicking off at the spectacular, all-inclusive Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, St. Maarten. The main will be an $1,100 no-limit hold’ em tournament with a $100,000 guarantee and is set to run May 13 – 15 at the Casino Royale.

The inaugural CPPT St. Maarten main event last year drew a field of 138 entries for a $1,650 buy-in tournament, surpassing the $200,000 guarantee. In the end Enrici Christophe emerged victorious, making a deal three-handed that saw Chistophe take home the trophy, the title and $37,950. Paul and Fair each took home $31,000 with second place going to Paul as he had more chips than Fair.

Card Player’s own Allyn Shulman finished fifth for $11,850, bringing her all-time CPPT winnings to over $326,000. Shulman was the lone former CPPT champion in the tournament, having won the CPPT Venetian Deepstacks $5,000 main event in 2013. Day 1A chipleader Mark Stephen Edwards finished ninth, while Day 1B chipleader Mark Gregorich finished eighth.
