The Acroud Charity Tournament is over and has been decisively won by Norwegian scene stalwart Ylva Thorsrud. The final hand, relegating Kresten Hougaard to second place, looked like so:
Thorsrud: 8 2
Hougaard: 5 5
Board: A-9-2-8-2 making Thorsrud a full house.
Thorsud and Hougaard split the 8k prize money 60 / 40. Her share (€4,800) will go to SOS Children's Villages and Hougaards share (€3,200) will be donated towards the Shelter for Abandoned Animals in Malta.
I lamented to Thorsud that we were unable to watch her victory owing to a faulty livestream. "That's so typical," she exclaimed, "The one time I win! Normally I bust out first. But it means we can drink a lot."
