EPT Deauville: Ismael Bojang wins the €10,300 PLO Championship

Ismael Bojang has won the €10,300 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship of EPT Season 9 pocketing €83,000 in a tightly contested finale which, somewhat unsurprisingly, featured two Finns in the final three players. EPT Barcelona third-place finisher Joni Jouhkimainen scored another impressive result finishing runner-up to Bojang. Both players have made EPT Main Event final tables this year; Bojang scored an eighth at EPT Sanremo for €65,450 while Jouhkimainen picked up €404,050 in Spain.

Bojang's been doing pretty well on the tour, he picked up a runner-up finish in Prague.
