England’s Tamer Kamel is no stranger to the EPT. One month ago he took down the €300 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em Eureka Mini event at the EPT10 Vienna for €34,030. That score was nice, but it was actually his fourth biggest on the EPT.
His other three big cashes came in 2013 in London and Prague. In December, he finished 19th in the EPT10 Prague Main Event for €34,500, and earlier in the year he managed an even better Main Event finish when he took seventh in EPT9London for €79,950.
For Kamel, those scores rank third and second respectively, and that’s because his biggest came back in October when he made the final table of the EPT10 London £10,000 High Roller for £106,170 ($172,144 USD).
Kamel will need to finish in either first or second if he wants to set a new career record, but that may prove easier said than done as he begins the final table fifth in chips.
