Few players have parlayed their EPT win into a successful career quite like Scotland’s David Vamplew, who graduated from Edinburgh University with a degree in math. In Season 7 he topped a field of 848 players, which included defeating John Juanda in heads-up play, to win the £900,000 first-place prize. Since then Vamplew hasn’t slowed down. Here’s a look at his most notable accomplishments in the past three years:
- Third in the World Poker Tour Venice in February 2011 for €147,970.
- Fourth in the 2011 WSOP $1,500 NLHE – Six Handed for $141,030.
- First in the EPT Tallinn €1,000 No Limit Hold’em event for €19,600.
- Second in the 2013 WSOP Event #2 $5,000 NLHE – Eight Handed for $342,450.
- Second in the 2013 WSOP Event #53 $1,500 NLHE for $413,157.
In September, Vamplew also placed third in the €2,000 NLHE 8-Handed Turbo event at the EPT Barcelona for €35,040. Needless to say, Vamplew shows no sign of slowing down, and it all started with the EPT London.
