There aren’t many players more feared on the European Poker Tour than the Team PokerStars Pro Johnny Lodden. And yet looking at Lodden’s results through the past few seasons, it is notable that it’s been a while since he had a massive score on European soil – certainly one that is even close to the $300,000 he won at the World Series in 2010.
We don’t need to fear for Lodden. He still makes a pretty healthy living from cash games, both live and online, and dabbles often in sports betting. But it would be good to see Lodden in the top three of an EPT, if only so that all that class can be viewed alongside another six-figure score.
Lodden is here in Prague, of course, and he has even begun to win the occasional flip, as he explains to Kristy Arnett in the video interview below. Lodden had ace-king and spiked an ace to best a pair of pocket nines, putting him beyond to 200,000, more than double his overnight stack.
Is this the one time?
