888 Pro Henrik Johansson Wins 2013 WSOP Europe Event #2888poker sponsored pro Henrik Johansson has won the 2013 WSOP Europe Event #2: €1,100 No-Limit Hold’em Re-entry, after besting a field of 659 players on his way to capturing his first gold bracelet, as well as the €129,700 first place prize.
Impressively, another 888.com sponsored player, Jackie Glazier, took down Event #1: €1,100 Ladies Event a few days ago, and now after Swedish pro Johansson’s stunning victory, the 888 Senior Vice President Itai Pazner, commented:
“It’s always exciting to see one of our loyal customers do so well, this year’s WSOPE is starting out with a bang and with such a talented and large team on the ground I think we could see a few more bracelets in this year’s series. Enjoy Henrik, I hope our Team helps you celebrate!!”
The €1,100 re-entry tournament attracted a good-sized field to create a prize pool worth €632,640. Amongst the notable names then cashing in at the competition was Chris Klodnicki in 62nd (€1,930), Jonathan Karamalikis in 54th (€2,113), Jeff Madsen in 41st (€2,341), Barry Greenstein in 35th (€2,619), and David Rheem in 22nd (€4,599).
At the final table of nine, Henrik Johansson (J-J) would then eliminate Andrei Konopelko (7-7) in 9th (€12,134), before doing likewise to Jose Obadia in 7th (€19,498), Daniel Weinman in 4th (€43,772), and Yaniv Botbol in 3rd (€58,860), to go heads-up against France’s Adriano Torre-Grossa.
As the heads-up battle commenced, Johansson had a roughly 1.6-to-1 chip advantage over his opponent and just 22 hands later the defining hand was played with Torre-Grossa (7-6) check-raising all-in on a 9-10-7 flop, only to be called by Johansson with 10-9. The turn and river subsequently produced two aces to consign Torre-Grossa to a runner-up finish worth €80,250, while Henrik Johansson picked-up the prestigious gold winners bracelet.
