The success of the first €25K, was the biggest of Carrel, but this is not the only one he had won. Carrel headed the field consisting 212 entries back in November, and won the 2014 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour Grand Final and earned £108,625. Only a couple of months ago, he also won €183,800 when he finished at the fifth place in EPT Malta €10,000 High Roller.
Carrel confessed that in the last five months he had been living out the suitcase. When asked what his next plans are, he told that it is going to celebration with friends in a town which is not decided yet. Carrel also came up that the win was not all of his own and he is also planning to participate in the $111,111 One Drop event of 2015 World Series of Poker. His face was with a huge smile when he said that he was highly excited to spend some of the winnings on his friends.
That was a great thought, sharing your success with your friends! It is a great human touch and showed the humane side of the young champion and how much he loves his friends. Good luck to you Carrel on your celebrations and you deserve it. We also wish you great success in your future tournaments.
