Søren Kongsgaard is the new Danish poker champion.

There's more to Danish poker than Gus Hansen and recent EPT Barcelona winner Sander Lylloff. Over the weekend, 19-year-old Søren Kongsgaard took home the Danish No-Limit Hold'em championship.

Søren Kongsgaard made a name for himself when he finished third in the European Poker Tour Grand Final in Monte Carlo in April. He followed that up by winning a side event when the new EPT season kicked off in Barcelona two weeks ago.

Now, he is the new Danish poker champion. Kongsgaard defeated Jesper Bulow Christensen heads-up to win the No-Limit Hold'em main event.

The victory gave Kongsgaard approximately $200,000 in prize money. Not much compared to the $814,000 he won in Monte Carlo, but still a prestigious win for the young man who has earned the right to call himself the best poker player in Denmark.
