Back in Season 8 Davidi Kitai took down EPT Berlin for €712,000, besting a field of 745 players. Back then Kitai beat Andrew Chen heads up for the title, and we've spotted both of them in the tournament so far. Kitai and Chen sit at adjacent tables, and it's safe to say neither would mind facing the other again heads up here.
In the same season that Kitai won his EPT, Martin Finger took down the event in Prague for €720,000. Finger has since gone on a big tear, raking in $6.6 million in live tournament earnings putting him eighth on the German all-time money list, while Kitai leads the way in Belgium.
