When it come to PokerStars European Poker Tour, Danish players have been doing extremely well lately. Frederik Jensen, Mickey Petersen and Jannick Wrang have all won the main event in the past months, so it might not come as surprise to anyone that the chip leader of the World Poker Tour Vienna main event is also Danish.
Morten Christensen qualified for the tournament online and was not known by most people until Day 2 came to an end. In total, Christensen has 483,000 chips at the moment and his closest opponent, Christopher Moorman, has about 700,000 less. So you can just imagine what a great spot Christensen is in at the moment.
The tournament started with 396 players a few days ago. Now there are only 67 players left and the big money is getting closer and closer. The lucky winner will take home nothing less than $410,519, and the second place pays $251,166. The money bubble will burst when 45 players remain. Then all players will be guaranteed to get at least $8,555 each.
