11/19/2012 : OLSSON TAKES WPT COPENHAGEN FINAL EVENT
Young Swede wins the title and a WPT Championship Seat
Swedish poker pro Emil Olsson has emerged the World Poker Tour Copenhagen champion.
Olsson spent the most part of the day as the underdog, down 600 000 chips from over 2 Million and seemingly unable to win any pots before going into heads-up with Norwegian Morten Klein.
Ohlsson eventually wore Klein down in heads-up action that lasted just under an hour, taking the title and pocketing $229 938 along with a $25 000 WPT Championship seat.
Final results ended up:
1 Emil Olsson $229 938
2 Morten Klein $145 164
3 Philip Jacobsen $93 080
4 Stanislav Barshak $68 316
5 Robin Ylitalo $51 237
6 Jan Djerberg $40 989
