€25,000 High Roller

Seat 2: Igor Kurganov (Germany) -- 1,288,000

We see Igor Kurganov a lot on the European Pour Tour and it comes of no surprise that he's done well to make the final table in this event second in chips with 1.288 million.

Kurganov has nearly $900,000 in live tournament earnings coming into this final table. With the €100,000 he's already locked up, Kurganov has guaranteed himself to eclipse the seven-figure mark.

Most of Kurganov's winnings have come in big buy-in events like this one. In May of 2011, he took second in the €10,000 High Roller Turbo at the EPT Grand Final in Madrid for €123,000. He then went on to finish third in the EPT Tallinn High Roller for €40,450 and second in the EPT London High Roller for £318,300 after losing to his neighbor at this final table, Philipp Gruissem. Both of those latter two results were this season.
