Denmark’s Frederik Jensen is the new 2012 PokerStars EPT Madrid Main Event Champion. Jensen earned €495,000 for his victory after the last three remaining players struck a deal.
In the last hand of the tournament Fraser MacIntyre got his last 2.43 million into the middle with A♦ 9♠, and Frederik Jensen quickly called him with A♣ T♥.
The flop came 4♦ 8♦ J♠, turn was the Q♠ and the river Q♥, giving Jensen the victory.
This is the second biggest live tournament score for Jensen, who has now earned around $2 million from live tournaments during his career.
His biggest live cash came in 2010 when he finished in second place in the Aussie Millions Main Event for over $1m.
"It feels pretty damn amazing. At the Aussie Millions I got up against someone who was pretty tight, he won the first three or four pots and I thought he changed gears but he was just hitting.
I've thought a lot about that for the last two years and I decided that I would stick to my game plan. That's what I did this time; grinding steadily, not playing big pots unless I had some equity.", Jensen told to PokerStars Blog after taking down the EPT Madrid Main Event.
