|A skilled online poker player from Copenhagen has won a $20,000 sponsorship package in Betfair Poker's Iron Man challenge.|
Frank Sorensen, a 31-year-old player who drives a school bus and coaches his local football team, will represent Betfair Poker at tournaments worldwide after winning the site’s Iron Man challenge.
The challenge was part of Betfair Poker's '12 Plays of Christmas' - a hunt for the site's highest-level tournament player. The criteria for selecting this player was based on their consistency of performance in daily $15,000 and $10,000 guaranteed tournaments.
'I didn't realise how well I was doing until a friend saw my name on the leader board,' said Sorensen.
'I love coaching the football team but this maybe the time to hang up the bus keys and concentrate on my poker.'
Sorensen will join Betfair’s established group of poker professionals at live events around the world.
