Peterson is Poker King of England

Danish Pro Mickey Peterson takes down English Poker Open after defeating star-studded field

After four long and gruelling days of top-notch poker, Danish pro Mickey Peterson has been crowned the “Poker King of England” after claiming the English Poker Open at London’s Fox Poker Club. Peterson scooped the £2,000 Main Event title and earned himself £78,660 for first place.
On his way to victory this year’s Danish EPT champion had to work his way through a field of 137, that included the very best of UK poker talent including the likes of Sam Trickett, Surinder Sunar, Liv Boeree, Ben Jackson, James Akenhead, Neil Channing and our very own Roberto Romanello.
Heading into the final-table, Peterson was perfectly placed sitting with the third largest chip stack and by the time the action reached heads-up between Petersen and Chris Bjorin, the great Dane had amassed a dominating 4.5-to-1 chip advantage. 
The final hand saw him push all-in with a pair of nines only to be called by Bjorin’s As-Kc. The board missed Bjorin and Petersen added his second major championship of the year.

Here’s how the final table finished up:

1. Mickey Petersen – £78,660
2. Chris Bjorin – £49,690
3. Surinder Sunar – £35,880
4. Jamie Roberts – £28,290
5. Nicola Lategano – £20,700
6. Ben Jackson – £15,180
7. Niels Ladefoged – £10,350
8. Thomas Laumier – £8,280
9. Igor Kurganov – £6,210
