Season 7 EPT Barcelona champ Kent Lundmark

In the two years prior to his win, Sweden’s Kent Lundmark, born May 19, 1988, had several five-figure scores including 29th in the 2010 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event for $66,000 and second in the 2010 Nordic Masters of Poker SKr 25,000 No Limit Hold’em Main Event for $69,911. Then, in November 2010, Lundmark broke through by winning the EPT Barcelona for $1,127,604.

He did so by outlasting 757 other players including a final table that housed Francesco Notaro (8th - €70,000), Thor Stang (6th - €130,000), Konstantin Puchkov (3rd - €300,000) and Jesus Cortes Lizano (2nd - €525,000). The heads-up match with Lizano began with Lundmark holding a slight chip lead, and he never looked back. Twenty minutes after winning a big pot where Lizano missed a flush, Lundmark finished the job. He opened with a bet of 320,000 and then moved all in when his Spanish opponent three-bet to 880,000. Lizano called off with the {k-Spades}{j-Diamonds} and was behind the {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts} of Lundmark. The board ran out {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{7-Spades}{5-Spades}{a-Spades} and Lundmark became an EPT champion.

Lundmark, who began playing poker straight out of high school, has been keeping busy traveling the European circuit and has amassed $219,989, $186,249 and $132,843 in tournament winnings in the three years since his win. Among his most notable accomplishments are a runner-up finish in the 2012 Unibet Open Paris Main Event for $129,287, first in a Full Tilt Poker UKIPT Galway €1,000 NLHE side event for $72,307 and second in the 2011 EPT Sanremo €2,000 NLHE Bounty for $42,051.
