English player Tomas Macnamara cashed in five previous EPT Main Events but he made it to his first final table here at EPT13 Malta. The 30-year-old from Manchester came close to the finale back at EPT12 Dublin. He was eliminated on the last two tables of the EPT12 Dublin Main Event, taking €32,870 for 13th place.
His EPT collection includes two Main Event cashes from EPT London and one from both Barcelona and Prague. Macnamara's best result was 285th place in the 2010 WSOP Main Event for a $41,967. He'll set his new personal best tomorrow, having already guaranteed a €76,790 payday. Macnamara has racked up $175k in live cashes and is shy of the top 500 in England's all-time money list. He'll ladder at least 130 places up after adding his EPT13 Malta winnings.
