GBP144 218 top prize for Danish pro

Event 1 of the World Series of Poker Europe has come and gone, leaving Danish pro Jesper Hougaard the victor and holder of a gold bracelet and a useful GBP144 218 in cash.

Hougaard was the low man in chip stacks when the final table started out, but with skilled and determined play he truimphed against the likes of US ace Adam Junglen, recent APPT Macau Main Event champion Yevgeniy Timoshenko and an overall entry field that touched 410 players.

The heads up was decided when Timoshenko was eliminated by Hougaard, who entered the final phase of the game with a 5 to 1 chip advantage against his sole remaining opponent Fuad Serhan. Five hands later Hougaard eliminated Serhan, whose second place winnings were a creditable GBP 89 175.

Hougaard now holds a record as the first player to win WSOP bracelets in both the USA and European editions of the poker extravaganza in the same year.
