After a couple of sparring pots, Morten Mortensen opened on the button to 160,000 and Martin Emanuelsson reraised to 400,000 from the big blind. Mortensen moved all-in instantly for about 2,000,000 and Emanuelsson immediately called.
Cries of “Eight-ball!” came from the Danish friends of Mortensen as the flop came , not the worst flop ever for Emanuelsson as a seven now meant he could split the pot, the also meant any trey would also see the pot chopped up but the river was the and Emanuelsson made a winning two pair.
Mortensen finished as a worthy runner-up, but just pipped at the post in what was ostensibly a cooler when you have just 25 big blinds. Still, second place is nothing to be too disappointed about and Mortensen takes home with him over €40,000 back to Copenhagen.
