Swede takes home EPT Copenhagen

After 5 days of play, it finally came to be poker pro Anton Wigg, 22, from Stockholm, Sweden, who took down EPT Copenhagen and the first place prize of 3,675,000 DKK (about $670,000). Wigg played very well on the final table and it looked like nothing could stop him for a while. However, when the final table was down to heads-up, Wigg had a really hard time against his final opponent Francesco de Vivo.

Wigg was big favorite to take down many big pots against Vivo, but unfortunately the luck wasn't on his side anymore, and suddenly, he was almost out of the tournament. Then everything took a turn again and Wigg started taking down pot after pot. After that Wigg had doubled up a few times, he and his opponent had even stacks again. And after 3,5 hours of play, it all came to an end.

Anton Wigg betted 285,000 on the button. Francesco de Vivo raised to 800,000. Wigg moves all in, Vivo called the all in.

De Vivo: KDiamond 10Spade
Wigg: AHeart JDiamond

Board: QHeart 9Heart QDiamond 2Diamond 8Heart

This time the best hand held up. A very well deserved win for Anton Wigg!

Something is not right at the text. By the way you show last hand, the winner was De Vivo! Don't forget to arrange it before more notice it.

well done fighting back in headsup and winning the tournament, though his opponent played very well too.
it looks alright to me, maybe they hav rectified it now

$670k sounds like a nice bankroll boost. Of course, winning a tournament like that means more than just the prize money. Some corporation, say online poker site, might be interested in offering him staking for further live tournaments in case he does not already have a sponsor. In any case, winning something like that is a merit for any tournament player.

I really mind for Francesco de Vivo; it was first partecipation in an EPT tournament and he had sponsorship to pay his roll only few days before the start. It was a dream for him and I'm sure he will dream again.

Forza grandissimo Francesco Smile
