Martin Finger’s EPT London High Roller Victory Highlights Recent German Dominance

Posted on by RTR Dave

Guest blog part 5: David La Ronde, EPO 2009 winner

Final Table Did not sleep much as I was wading through YouTube coverage of EPT London 2008 and Michael Tureniec. I had singled him and John Eames as the most dangerous players on the final table.
