More than two years after coming second at EPT London, Swedish pro Michael Tureniec has finally claimed an EPT title, taking down the Season 7 EPT Copenhagen main event. The 25-year-old, from Stockholm, beat fellow Swede Per Linde to snag the DKK 3,700,000 first prize (approximately €496,271). His victory also earned him a stunning bracelet from EPT Copenhagen Official Bracelet Sponsor Shamballa Jewels, and a seat into the Season 7 EPT Grand Final in Madrid in May.

Tureniec, 25, has now amassed more than $2.5 million in live tournament winnings. In addition to his runner-up finish at EPT5 London, for £525,314, he chopped the EPT Barcelona €2,000 side event last November with fellow Copenhagen finalist John Eames, earning €140,000.

He said: “I’m feeling very happy. It’s been a good day. I’m glad I managed to win against such tough opponents. I’m very proud. It’s such a tough field here with a lot of Scandinavian players. My plan now is to first get a driver’s license, then get a nice car.”
