Emil Olsson Wins World Poker Tour Copenhagen Main Event
Swede Beats 228 Opponents in Denmark To Lift $229,938 And $25,000 WPT Championship Seat
Emil Olsson from Sweden has won the World Poker Tour Copenhagen main event taking down $229,938 for his victory over the 229-strong field.
However with just six players remaining over the five days of play it was Olssen who was the chip leader. He knocked Stanislav Barshak out in fourth and got out of jail free with a runner-runner flush against Philip Jacobsen to get back in the game after becoming shortstacked.
The heads up duel between Olssen and Morten Klein of Norway lasted less than an hour with the lead swinging both ways until Olssen asserted and moved into a clear lead. The final hand saw the Norwegian run his K 8 into the Swede’s K-K and it was game over for Klein and hello to a new WPT champion in the form of Emil Olsson.
The final table payouts and Card Player Player of the Year points were:
1: Emil Olsson — $229,938 (576 POY points)
2: Morten Klein — $145,164 (480 POY points)
