Euro Poker News: Norwegian Wins EPT Dortmund

Andreas Hoivold Wins EUR 672,000

Andreas Hoivold EPT Dortmund Winner
Once again, a Scandinavian player has come out on top at an EPT event. Thirty-five-year-old Norwegian Andreas Hoivold took first place at the inaugural German EPT event at Casino Hohensyburg in Dortmund, Germany.

Andreas is the second Norwegian to win an EPT event this year. (Erik-Bjorn Glenne won in Barcelona earlier this season.)

Andreas is no stranger to the final tables, as he had an impressive third-place finish in the Ladbrokes Poker Million in London in December.

By all accounts, the EPT event in Dortmund was a tremendous success, with a record-breaking field of 493 (with 126 German players). Next stop on the EPT is Warsaw, Poland.

1) Andreas Hoivold (Norway): €672,000
