Another High Roller Triumph for Busquet

Tuesday, 14 October 2014

The Bluff Europe cover kharma has worked its magic once again with Olivier Busquet the latest beneficiary.

This month's feature interviewee (check it out here) has added the £2,000 UKIPT High Roller title to his tournament CV. Busquet pocketed £107,300 after outlasting a field of 276 entrants at the Grand Connaught Rooms.

The EPT Barcelona High Roller winner topped a stacked final table that included last year's Irish Open winner Ian Simpson (9th), 2012 WSOP Main Event bubble girl Gaelle Baumann (7th), British tournament reg Chris Brammer (5th) and EPT Madrid winner Fredrik Jensen (3rd).

Busquet pipped Denmark's Henrik Hecklen to the title and the six-figure score to take his career earnings to $6,047,601.

1 Olivier Busquet USA £107,300
2 Henrik Hecklen Denmark £71,400
3 Frederik Jensen Denmark £52,200
4 Joel Nordqvist Sweden £42,150

The UKIPT also crowned its 2014 Champion of Champions over the weekend. Edinburgh winner Dean Hutchinson gets his entries and accommodation for every stop of UKIPT Season 5 paid for after beating Ben Mayhew heads up.
