Kent Lundmark Wins 2010 EPT Barcelona

A great first act, a slow, more reflective act two, followed by a dynamite finale. The main character to this televised drama? A quiet, unassuming Swede named Kent Lundmark, with a knack of picking his moments and who can now call himself a European Poker Tour champion.

Lundmark, 22, from Stockholm, dispatched Jesus Cortes Lizano heads-up after what at one point had looked a likely walkover, a choreographed ball staged to make Lundmark look invincible. Kent Lundmark, winner of EPT Barcelona.

In so doing, the Swede takes home €825,000.  Prior to entering the 2010 EPT Barcelona, Lundmark had only won $91,556 in live tournament play.
