Chip leader Joel Nordkvist is a No-Limit Hold'em specialist focusing in online play, but he's brought his best game to the live felt here in the EPT Sanremo €10,000 High Roller.
On Day 2, Nordkvist climbed the ladder all the way to the top, where he seemed as though he was never going to look back. When the day was all said and done, Nordkvist amassed over 1.2 million in chips, good enough for nearly 400,000 more than second place.
In the live realm, Nordkvist's best result was a familiar result coming from players at this final table. He, too, was at the final table of the 2011 EPT London High Roller with Philipp Gruissem and Igor Kurganov. There, Nordkvist finished sixth for £72,950 and the largest score of his live career.
In total, the Swedish pro has just over $288,00 in live earnings, but with this cash, he'll eclipse the $300,000 mark easily.
