Day 5 Completed
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.
The flop came down and it looked like it was going to be a double up for Busquet but the turn and river were the and the 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.

One problem is that the casino has to close by 5am (it's 3.15am at the moment) so we could be back tomorrow at this rate...
