He also stated that he was experiencing some problems along the way, but that things are turning around in his favor lately.
Reixach Main Opponent Of The Tournament
Reixach’s main opponent he had to face in the game was Sam Grafton, who also managed to end the tournament with a seven-figure prize.
The two players were engaged in a long and exciting heads-up play which took more than three hours. Both players had a chip lead a couple of times during the last part of the tournament, buy Reixach eventually managed to win.
Last Hand Of The 2019 €100,000 EPT Super High Roller
