Jannick Wrang from Denmark overcame a tough competition in the inaugural EPT Campione (buy-in Â€5.300) final table and eventually took down the title and Â€640.000.
In the Heads-Up play Wrang outlasted a well known online high stakes Sit and Go grinder and WPT Borgata Poker Open 2009 winner Olivier “livb112” Busquet.
“I was really rooting for Olivier to bust out when he was all-in (when four-handed) because he’s a very tough player. Everyone was tough actually, it was a sick final table. I can’t compare it with any other wins not yet. It’s a nice pay day.”, Wrang told to PokerStars Blog after his victory.
Final results (players 570, buy-in Â€5.300):
1 Jannick Wrang Â€640,000 (+Shamballa Jewels bracelet valued at over Â€10,000.)
2 Olivier Busquet Â€430,000
