Swede Martin Emanuelsson started the final table in the middle of the pack and really had to duck and dive to build up his chips, like all big wins, there was an element of luck involved as he was all-in for his tournament life with just T-9 against Tomi-Ville Hytti’s A-K but managed to spike a ten to keep him in the game.
Emanuelsson played fairly patiently and wasn’t afraid to mix it up a little when anyone tried to steal his big blind. Emanuelsson comes in from a good run of form, he currently leads the Swedish Casinos leaderboard back in his home country and also with this win goes to the very top of the GSOP leaderboard, the prize of which is a free seat in the Grand Final in Seville.
Congratulations then to Betsson’s Martin Emanuesson as the very first ever winner of GSOP Live from here in Riga, Betsson itself will be hosting our next event in late November in Malta and you can qualify online on OnGame right now.
We’ll hopefully see you there! Good night!
