Norwegian Ole Hausner, a 22-year old student from Tromsø, recently won the Ongame Grand Series of Poker Live Super Package worth $21,000 at Betsson Poker. Ole goes under the alias of DaffyCottage and in March he also won the Norwegian Poker Championship in Pot Limit Omaha.
The GSOP Live Super package includes flights, hotel and expenses plus buy-ins for all five live poker events within the GSOP Live Tournament. To be able to win the package, players have to qualify by collecting 30,000 points during a 40-day period.
-“I am looking forward to meet the European elite in Manchester for the first stop of the GSOP Live Tournament”, says Ole. “This will be the third time I play in the Grand Series of Poker and I will aim to win. Poker is of course about the challenge, the thrill and the skills. But more importantly, poker is a game of fun.”
-“The GSOP Live Tournament is a unique concept that suits all our players well”, says Herbert Paradis, Head of Poker at Betsson which is a member of the Ongame poker network. “The GSOP attracts both recreational players and professional players. It is a tournament that combines affordable buy-ins with the luxurious atmosphere of a world-class event.”
