The final day of the £50,000 EPT London Super High Roller at the EPT London has come to an end, with Henrik Hecklen walking away with the trophy and the £652,700 first-place prize.
Hecklen defeated Day 2 Chip leader and EPT London £10,200 Mystery Bounty champion Juan Pardo in heads-up play after nearly four hours of play. The event drew 39 entries and generated a £1,891,890 prize pool.
Hecklen came into the day at the bottom of the leaderboard, and Pardo had more than three times his nearest competitor. He was patient and he took advantage of an early double to give himself a few much-needed early chips.
“When he has all the chips you hope that you can ladder a few spots, right?” Hecklen said about his early strategy.
But Pardo didn’t have all the chips for long, and Hecklen climbed from the bottom to complete the underdog victory. Up next for the champ is a shot at the EPT London Main Event.
“I’m going to play the Main Event today, and I’ll probably play some of the other stuff. Maybe the £10,000.”
