Anton Wigg wins PokerStars EPT Copenhagen

Monday, 22 February 2010

The Danish leg of the PokerStars European Poker Tour saw lots of play, lots of competition and lots of heads-up but only one winner – professional poker player from Stockholm, Anton Wigg.

Despite being down to a 12:1 chip deficit at one stage in the heads-up battle, Wigg recovered to take stacks even and gain a chip lead before the last hand. Francesco De Vivo called Wigg’s 4-bet all-in on the last hand, flipping over Kd-Ts against Wigg’s Ah-Jd.

The board ran out Qh-9h-Qd-2d-8h giving both players diddly squat but allowing Wigg to earn the 3,675,000DKK (around $671,000)prize with ace high. De Vivo had to settle for second, still a seven-figure DKK payout.

The full final table placings and prizes were as follows:

1.Anton Wigg (3,675,000 DKK)
2.Francesco de Vivo (2,275,000 DKK)
