Another day, another new poker tour, this time in Riga. The Latvian capital played host to the opening leg of the GSOP Tour and attracted 283 players creating a prize pool of over $500,000.
Perhaps unsurprisingly it was a Scandinavian dominated affair with Sweden's Martin Emanuelsson defeating Denmark's Morten Mortensen heads up to take the title. With play three handed Emanuelsson got the crucial bit of luck he needed with his tournament life on the line spiking a 10 when he was all in with 10-9 against Tomi-Ville Hytti's AK.Ace King proved unlucky for Hytti again shortly afterwards. The long time chip leader's A9 couldn't outrun Emanuelsson's big slick and he hit the rail in third place leaving the Dane and the Swede to battle it out for the title.After a few cagey pots the action soon came to a conclusion with Mortensen's A8 shove called by Emanuelsson's AJ. An AK3 flop brought a few split pot possibilities but a 3 on the turn and jack on the river game the Swede the maiden GSOP title and with it a first prize of €63,154.The Portomaso Casino in Malta will play host to the next leg of the GSOP tour starting from 25th November 2010. The buy-in is $1,500 with qualifiers up and running on the On Game network starting at just $2.
