Allan Bække dominated the last few days of the EPT snowiest main event. He reached the final table as big chip leader and continued playing his very best poker. Everything was going his way and there was no doubt that he would make it far. Anyhow, when the table was down to 3 players, Allan Bække, Russell Carson and Johannes Strassmann (German PokerStars Pro), his poker skills were really put to the test.

It seemed like it would take forever before any player got knocked out. Well, it took 3 hours of play before Johannes Strassmann was sent packing and left Bække and Russell Carson to play heads-up poker. Even though Bække had dominated throughout the tournament and at the final table, Russell had no plans what so ever to give him an easy win. It was a quite even game at first, but then Bække switched to his second gear and finally managed to win the heads-up after nearly 2 hours. For the win he received nothing less than €445,000.

Hello everybody!
Congratulations to him. Indeed it is never easy to keep the head of a tournament until the end. It's quite rare I think.
