Hossein Ensan, 50, belongs to a group of players here in Malta who already know what it feels like to get this far at an EPT. The 50-year old German came to fame at EPT100 in Barcelona when - firstly, he took down the Seniors event and then won his Main Event seat in a live satellite. It turned to be his life-changing achievement as he finished third at EPT Barcelona for €652,667.
Ensan is originally from Iran, but moved to Germany when he was 25 and now lives in Münster. Last month, he made it to the final table at Eureka Rozvadov, busting in eighth place for €12,770. Ensan will need to win the EPT Malta in order to surpass his score from Barcelona last fall.
