It ended up being a Scot and Dane who battled it out for the EPT Madrid title. Frederik Jensen, from Denmark, started the heads-up with a 2-1 lead over Fraser MacIntyre. Jensen dominated the heads-up totally and a few hands into the match he had a 4-1 advantage. MacIntyre had basically given up at that point, and it didn't take long before Jensen had all the chips (to be precise, the heads-up only lasted for 15 minutes).

Due to a deal made by the last 3 players, Jensen received €495,000 instead of €545,000 for the win. He also received a Shamballa bracelet and a ticket to the Champion of Champions event later this season.

"It feels pretty damn amazing," said Jensen. "At the Aussie Millions (where Jensen finished second) I got up against someone who was pretty tight, he won the first three or four pots and I thought he changed gears but he was just hitting."

"I've thought a lot about that for the last two years and I decided that I would stick to my game plan. That's what I did this time; grinding steadily, not playing big pots unless I had some equity."

1st. Frederik Jensen, €495,000
2nd. Fraser MacIntyre, PokerStars qualifier, €290,000 

3rd. Andrei Stoenescu, €330,000 

4th. Bruno Lopes, €140,000 

5th. Ricardo Ibañez, €115,000 

6th. Ilan Boujenah, €92,000
7th. Nicolas Levi, €69,450
8th. Jason Duval, €48,000

His strategy of only going for big pots with something good in the hand is already being profitable. I haven’t follow this must there must have been a good reason for Jensen to make that agreement when there were only three players. Was he that close to the other two when that happened? I ask this because, when we look to the final HU and see a 2-1 lead, don’t seem to have much sense.
