Scoring a €55,750 turbo win is quite a way to make your virgin first cash. Samir Hadad last night beat a field of 83 who had bought into the €2,150 turbo to top a final table which included the aggressive young Finn Joni Jouhkimainen, who we last saw in the last three of EPT Barcelona (along with Ilari Sahamies and Mikalai Pobal).
