Danny Latten wins Belgian Poker Series Blankenberge

Thumbnail image for ps_news_thn.jpgThe PokerStars Belgian Poker Series main event in Blankenberge has been won by Dutchman Danny Latten, who collected €70,000 for his first major title.

Victory came on a flop of J♠[10h]3♥, when Latten moved all-in and Christiaan Vanzieleghem, with few chips behind, made the call. Vanzielghem had 4♣3♠ for a pair, but Latten had K♥9♥ for the flush draw and gutshot straight draw. The turn was 8♣, changing nothing, but the river was 9♣ giving Latten the higher pair.

Vanzieleghem received €45,500 for being runner-up.

The €630 + €70 event on the Belgian coast was a great success, with 404 runners, including Team PokerStars Pro and former WSOP main event winner Chris Moneymaker, generating a €294,920 prize pool.
