Emil Olson WPT Copenhagen winner
World Poker Tour

Famous poker star Emil Olsson defeated a field of 229 of the worlds most skilled and talented poker players at the Casino Copenhagen as part of the World Poker Tour. Bluffing and betting his way to over $200,000 USD and his first title, Olsson also won himself a free ride into next spring's Bellagio tournament.

The latest stop on Season XI of the World Poker Tour is in the books after Emil Olsson bested a field of 229 players to win the WPT Copenhagen Main Event at Casino Copenhagen on Saturday. Olsson defeated Morten Klein heads-up to claim his first WPT title and the top prize of 1,200,000 DKK ($229,938), which includes a $25,000 seat in the WPT Championship at Bellagio next spring.

Olsson began the final table with the chip lead but endured a tumultuous ride en route to the title.
