Swedish professional William Thorson has been crowned king of the Baltic after winning the Main Event of the PokerStars Baltic Festival in Tallinn, Estonia over the weekend.
The 27-year-old outlasted an international field of 222 runners from 21 countries to take the first prize of just over €80,000. The win proved to be something of a relief for the young Swede who has reached four EPT final tables but has never quite managed to claim a win. "I've been waiting for this so long. I'm so happy you just can't imagine it. This means so much to me.. it's unbelievable. I really wanted this title." said Thorson, who had to battle hard for the win. Heads up play with Lithuanian pro Dominykas Karmazinas last three hours before the Swede eventually sealed the win after his pocket Jacks held up against Karmazinas's pocket deuces.PokerStars Baltics country manager Tomas Larsson said: "This is the second Baltic Festival tournament and it's been a great event with the largest prize pool in Baltic history. It's also really set the scene for a great EPT here in August. People have seen what a superb venue this is and can't wait to come back." The European Poker Tour will be heading to Tallinn for the opening leg of the new season from 11th to 16th August. Qualifiers are running at PokerStars.
