WPT Vienna: Danish Online Qualifier In the Lead!

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.

Online poker amateur-to-pro players rules! This is the best way to show everyone that online poker is not a joke, and that many of the regulars that dedicate lots of time to it aren’t just kidding with their parent’s hard work money won at any regular 9 to 5 job.

Indeed danish online players have been showing during the last months they aren't joknig in front of the PC when the subject is poker. We have had many examples, and now we have one more big candidate to go from a satellite to the final table of WPT Vienna. Wish him the best!

These poker players have great skills and one of them is that they are extremely patient waiting for premium starting hands. They know when to make their move.

I agree. Some of regular online winners are as good as 'famous' pros are. Some graphics of this guys in MTTs are incredible and his next natural step is go to the live great tounaments as EPTs. And yes, danish are working great!!!

Nice to hear that a player that comed from the online environment does so good on this live tournament too Smile

I think it's good from time to time to have more Chris moneymaker poker stories, it's a good motivation for other players Smile
