World-Series-of-Poker-July-2010-dealer-tables-300x200There are a number of tournament results to go over this week, including preliminary tournaments from the WPT Borgata Poker Open; HPT and WSOPC Main Events; The Festa al Lago Main Event; and a Eurasian Poker Tour victory by Marvin Rettenmaier.

Rettenmaier triumphs in Kiev

If it wasn’t for Marvin Rettenmaier winning the tournament I have to admit that I would have no idea there was something called the Eurasian Poker Tour. Fortunately for the tour Rettenmaier (one of the game’s top players) did win their Kiev Main Event, besting a field of 160 players, bringing a little attention to the tour.

2. Emil Eranosyan – $51,770

3. William Dorey – $33,300

4. Khristo Genev – $24,660
