The World Poker Tour Vienna Main Event concluded this Sunday with Danish pro Morten Christensen taking home the €313,390 prize and his first WPT title. The Danes have been on an impressive streak lately taking home title after title in EPT and WTP events throughout Europe.
Christensen entered the final table second in chips with 2,540,000 in his stack, wedged between Ognjen Sekularac and Ben Wilinofsky, who had 3,430,000 and 2,270,000 respectively. Norbert Szecsi, Konstantin Tolokno, and Goswin Siemsen rounded out the six-handed final table.
Following the elimination of Szecsi in 6th, Siemsen in 5th, and Sekularac in 4th, Christensen won a big pot in three-handed play, binking a flush on the turn to send Wilinofsky out in third place. The pot gave Christensen a massive lead going into heads-up play with Tolokno, who was never able to overcome the deficit.
In the final hand of play, Christensen called Toloknos all-in tabling A8s, which dominated Toloknos K8. The board ran out A-Q-9-7-2, providing no help for Tolokno who took home $251,166 for his runner-up finish.
