The ultimate competition on the 2018 European Poker Tour (EPT) Prague list held the €10,300 High Roller which brought in 259 contestants creating a €2,512,300 premium supply. While various big celebrities were observed in performance, it was the Danish pro – Henrik Hecklen who eventually brought down the performance for a career-best €503,700.
Henrik Hecklen’s original EPT title appeared back in 2014 when he acquired the €2,200 NLHE – Estrellas High Roller for €293,000 at the EPT – 11 – ESPT – 5 – Barcelona. He also gained a long track at the EPT Prague Main Event where he completed 23rd for €33,540.
“You should not look at two matches in association with each other,” Henrik Hecklen declared in the post-event conference, “But presently that the Main Event didn’t actually work out it’s fine to own this kind of encouragement award, and it’s a great one clearly.”
Speaking about the ultimate board, Henrik Hecklen stated, “It was actually hard because there weren’t that numerous confrontations so it was kind of troublesome to conclude out whatever [Schemion] were causing but overall I think he played surprisingly well.
It was a difficult one. My experience is in deep stacked money tournaments and heads-up, I consider the arrangement was quite complimentary for me. It was absolutely better than 20 big blind shoving pokers. It satisfies me very strongly for sure.”
Celebrities who defeated in the money involve Charlie Carrel (17th for €30,900), Niall Farrell (11th for €43,970), Pavel Binar (28th for €19,600), Patrik Antonius (37th for €17,330), Timothy Adams (26th for €22,110), and the second €25K Single-Day High Roller winner Corentin Robert (39th for €17,330).
