EPT Madrid champion Frederik Jensen has been playing EPT's since Season 4 and was already a regular face when he took down the EPT Madrid stop in Season 8 for €495,000. Madrid was actually his second final table – he finished sixth at EPT Vilamoura two years earlier for €74,496.

His best live result however remains the $1m he won for a runner-up finish in the 2010 Aussie Millions. Most recently, Jensen – who is ranked #4 in the Danish all-time money list with nearly $2.7m in winnings – picked up a nice cash at EPT Malta last season when he was runner-up to Pratyush Buddiga in a €2k side event for €44,730. Jensen has made the final six partly thanks to a hand which has been dubbed “The Biggest Hero Call of the Tournament”. Facing elimination, the 33-year-old Dane called a massive shove by Uruguay player Daniel Casco in one of the last hands of the night on Day 4. It put him in the top ten for the start of play today with 2,280,000.

Jensen won his seat in to EPT Barcelona in a €320 Deep Hyper-Turbo back in June.

EPT regular Samuelsson has had a good year at EPT's so far. Back in January, he finished 20th in the PCA Main Event for $58,020 and then won a €2k side event at EPT Malta for €53,000 – his best live cash to date.

Barcelona is clearly one of his favourite EPT stops – he first competed here in Season 8 and has played every year since. He won his €5,300 prize package for the Main Event in a €530 qualifier back in June.
