  • Brewer’s latest win represents the biggest cash prize of his career

Everything’s going well so far for Chris Brewer at the PokerStars’ European Poker Tour (EPT) Paris, with the high-stakes poker pro winning two titles at the French stop, the latest of which gave him the biggest score of his career.

Brewer won the €50,000 Super High Roller which he took down this week for €959,520.

€50K Super High Roller Final Table Results

The €50,000 Super High Roller event attracted 68 entrants to generate €3,198,720 in total prize pool. The 68 entries dwindled to just 11 during the final day of the tournament and the early exits of Timothy Adams and Sam Greenwood paved the way for the nine-handed final table.

Spain’s Juan Pardo was the first to be eliminated from the final table, finishing in 9th place for €92,800. He was followed to the rail by Austria’s Thomas Muehloecker and Ireland’s Steve O’Dwyer who fell in 8th and 7th place for €120,000 and €155,100 respectively.

Next to go was Bulgarian player Dimitar Danchev who finished 6th for €201,500, followed by Gregoire Auzoux of France who took home €262,300 for his 5th-place finish.

Portugal’s Pedro Marques, who delivered an impressive play early in the game eliminating three opponents, failed to maintain his performance and eventually settled for 4th-place with €340,700 in winnings. It was Nick Petrangelo who sent Marques out of the game, giving him the chip lead. But he suffered a brutal beat during three-handed play which ended his stint in the tournament. The American poker pro finished 3rd for €443,800.

It took just less than half an hour for Chris Brewer to defeat his heads-up opponent, British pro Jules Dickerson. Both players had equal stacks when the one-on-one match began, but Brewer proved to be the better player, as he won a massive pot with quad eights vs. full house and went on to win the tournament in the next hand. Dickerson took home €623,800 as runner-up.

Brewer Thrilled With His Biggest Cashout Till Date

Chris Brewer won the €50K Super High Roller just two days after his €358,180 victory in the €25K No-Limit Hold’em at the same festival.

During his post-win interview, Brewer said his second victory at EPT Paris felt much better, considering that it’s a massive event with a tough field. The win also represents his biggest cash and first seven-figure score (the top prize is equivalent to $1,026,159).

That surpassed his previous best cashout, a 4th-place finish for $442,213 at the 2022 WSOP, by a huge margin.
