Karlen said “The tournament was really fun. Early on I managed to double up with a couple of flopped sets and big slicks that held up. Things went my way. Late game was all about choosing spots carefully since the structure was pretty fast. Playing a legend like Doyle Brunson heads-up is more than I ever could have dreamed of and will be really exciting. I'm looking forward to it and I will be happy, win or lose.”
Doyle Brunson said “Congratulations to Emanuel on winning the right to take me on Heads-Up. I've seen some of our Scandinavian players in action and they are pretty good. I am looking forward to putting Emanuel to the test in the final match of the most innovative tournament series DoylesRoom.com has ever produced.”
