After a nearly five-hour heads-up battle, Tim Vance was finally able to whittle down Soren Jensen and come away with his first major poker title. In addition to winning over $1.2 million USD for his victory, Vance also earns a seat in the EPT Grand Final in Monte Carlo, which kicks off on April 11.

"Yes! Yes! I did it, Nanzi!" cried Vance, as he looked lovingly at the photo of his three-year-old daughter that has been taped inside his red baseball hat for the duration of the tournament.

Runner-up Jensen was naturally disappointed and had hardly a word to say in his post-tournament interviews, while an emotional and exhausted Vance could only think of his daughter, crying "Nanzi!" as he hoisted his trophy aloft.

Congratulations to Tim Vance, a player we'll certainly be hearing from again at future EPT events.

Vance Whittling Jensen Down

Both players limp to a {Q-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{3-Clubs} flop...and check it. The turn is the {J-Clubs} and both check again. The river is the {8-Clubs}. Jensen checks, Vance bets 200,000 and Jensen calls. Vance shows J-8 for two pair and takes it down. Now it's 3.6 million for Vance to Jensen's 1,000,000.
