From Silkeborg, Morten Hvam rarely appears on the live poker circuit. PokerStars TV viewers might remember him from EPT Prague 2019, where he fell short of the final table, finishing in 13th place for €55,690. Other than that, the 32-year-old had only one other reported live cash before coming to Monaco.
Hvam has a part-time job in the banking industry, and when he plays cards, it's almost exclusively online. If that changes soon is yet to be seen, although Hvam and his wife like to travel. They have an eight-month-old boy, and Hvam would like to bring his family to Monaco sometime soon as he's enjoyed his poker vacation.
He had a fantastic to the Main Event, claiming the overall chip lead after Day 1. Since then, he's done well to position himself among the biggest favorites to win the title and end the Danish hiatus. It's been 10 years since the EPT crowned the last champion from Denmark — Jannick Wrang at EPT8 Campione.
