Kaarel Lepik from Estonia had an epic battle in the Heads-up of the Unibet Open Copenhagen’s main event and went on to win it.
He entered the Copenhagen Circuit along with 5 other players who were looking to get a qualification to play the main event. He was the only player from the group of six to qualify for the main event and to finally make it to the top. He had a really fierce battle with Sigurd Carlsson and overcame his opponent from the Faroe Islands after trailing him for a long time in the heads-up.
