English Poker Open Finishes, Strong Dane Takes Main Prize

This weekend saw the end of the Pokerstars English Poker Open 2012, where Danish Pokerstars pro Mickey Petersen took down the title and the main prize of GBP 78,660.

The entry field in the GBP 2,180 buy-in competition saw 138 names, which included some big ones such as Praz Bansi, James Akenhead, James Dempsey, Sam Trickett, Liv Boeree and the 2010 champion Fabian Quoss.

At the final table sat Petersen, Chris Bjorin, Surinder Sunar, Jamie Roberts, Nicola Lategano, Ben Jackson, Niels Ladefoged, Thomas Laumier and Igor Kurganov, while the heads-up saw a clash between Petersen Poker Hall of Fame nominee Bjorin.

However, despite his extensive experience and reputation, Bjorin didn&t manage to break Petersen&s lead, so he ended up with a runner-up prize of GBP 49,690 in his hands.
