Jannick Wrang

Jannick Wrang has become the third consecutive Danish European Poker Tour champion after besting a star-studded final table at the EPT Campione Main Event. Wrang, who spent just $309 to win his seat to this main event, takes home a massive first place prize of €640,000.

His victory was made all the more sweeter by the fact he defeated one of the best, if not the best, heads-up tournament poker player in the world in the shape of Olivier "livb12" Busquet after a 75-minute heads-up battle at the end of a 13 hour final table. The final hand saw Busquet open to 300,000, Wrang three-bet all in covering his opponent by a 3:1 margin and Busquet made the call.

Busquet: {A-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}
Wrang: {A-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}

The flop came down {A-Spades}{3-Hearts}{5-Hearts} and it looked like it was going to be a double up for Busquet but the turn and river were the {10-Hearts} and the {2-Hearts} respectively to gift Wrang a tournament winning flush and Busquet was resigned to the runner-up prize of €430,000.

The EPT next stops at Berlin on April 16 and the PokerNews Live Reporting team will be there. We sincerely hope you will be there with us.
