Thursday, Nov 13, 2008 LEOCOP IV Main Event: Another Danish Victory
Player hahila from Denmark won the LEOCOP IV Main Event and took home $229,500 in prize money.
Denmark is definitely the hottest country in the poker world right now. Peter Eastgate won the 2008 WSOP Main Event a couple of days ago, and his countryman hahila took home the LEOCOP IV Main Event this weekend.
Hahila is a Ladbrokes Poker regular who put in an amazing performance in the tournament, which attracted 4,360 players. The Dane dominated the final table before securing his victory in a tough heads-up duel with Benno26.
"Ladbrokes Poker is really proving to be a lucky talisman for the Danes. At the same time 'hahila' was dominating the final table eventually winning $230,000 after over 14 hours of play, Peter Eastgate, who flew out to Las Vegas as part of Team Ladbrokes in July of this year was bossing the WSOP final table. Both events have been great for Ladbrokes Poker this year," said Edward Ihre, Ladbrokes Poker managing director.
