Congratulations to Ole Schemion on winning the World Poker Tour European Championship Main Event. It's a very big and prestigious tournament, lots of pros are willing to win such kind of tourney. Also it's good to see Michal Mrakes finishing in top-5. Remember him playing at the final table of the Pokerstars Championship Prague few months ago.
