Englishman Timothy Timotheau was awarded the top prize of €86,680 at the European Masters of Poker Lisbon , after beating 393 players including many top pros such as Dave “Devilfish” Ulliott, Joao Barbosa, Johan Storakers, and former champion Anton Wigg.It took only six hands heads up between Timotheau and Lithuanian Povilas Purtokas to find a winner and the final hand came when Purtokas completed the blinds and Timotheau checked. Both then checked the K-7-4 rainbow flop and a jack was the next card out. Timotheau bet 140,000 and Purtokas moved all in. Timotheau made the call and flipped over K-9 for top pair, leaving Purtokas clinging to two outs with his pocket tens.It was a 4 on the river and that was it for Purtokas. He left the event with €53,190 for second place.The final table payouts were: 1. Timothy Timotheau – €86,680 2. Povilas Purtokas – €53,190 3.
