Team PokerStars Pro players are continuing to take the EPT London side events by storm. First Joe Hachem won the £2,000 European 8 Game Championships, then Jason Mercier took down the £2,500 No Limit, and now Team PokerStars Pro: Nordics William Thorson has bagged the £2,000 PLO.
Despite being the short stack early in the day with just 15,000 chips, he was able to work his way back and had a healthy 215,000 at dinner. When they returned, he took just 35 minutes to win the whole thing, collecting £52,400.
Honest as ever, he said afterwards: “Yeah, that was sick!”
It’s Thorson’s third big cash of the year so far: He came seventh at EPT Dortmund in March for $150,000, and then a few weeks later he came sixth in the EPT Monte Carlo High Roller for another $130,000.
Congratulations, William, on a fine performance, and also to Team Pro Florian Langmann for his third-place finish.
