William Thorson won PokerStars Baltic Festival (€80,823)

Even though the majority of notables in the poker world can be found in Las Vegas at the moment (or getting ready to go there), there are still a few that play in other tournaments around the globe. William Thorson, 27, the Swedish PokerStars Pro, is one of them. It turned out to be a wise decision of Thorson to go and play PokerStars Baltic Festival in Tallinn, instead of playing some event in 2010 WSOP.

Thorson survived a field of 222 players and won over the Lithuanian poker pro Dominykas Karmazinas after 3 hours of heads-up. This is the first major No Limit Hold'em title for William Thorson. He has been very successful in different Omaha tournaments and also reached 4 final tables in the EPT, but he has never won a single major NLH tournament before.

 

"I'm so happy you just can't imagine it. This means so much to me.. it's unbelievable. I really wanted this title." William said in an interview after the win.


....what about the WSOP?

"I have to admit that I get a bit jealous when I read about players doing well in 2010 WSOP. However, since a few years ago, I have decided to only play the Main Event and instead spend more time enjoying the short summer we have here in Sweden. I don't think it's worth spending 2 months in a desert in 50 degrees playing poker. I really hope that they will change the dates for the WSOP in the future."

it's always good to know more players win in different tournaments, but to me WSOP is the best tourney of them all

Yeah! A new player turning pro is always a good thing for the poker community!!! It's good to have these other tourneys going on so that we would have a good pool of great players!

KUDOS to William!!!

Turning Pro...? It's only one not so big event (80 for first place doesn't sound much when you look around). But good luck to him anyway maybe now he will try to win other tournaments.
