A Hansen Not Named Gus Wins WPT Spanish Championship


You'll never see this on TV (it's a non-televised event, i.e. it never really happened then), but Casper Hansen (above) finished what Gus Hansen couldn't last year by winning the WPT Spanish Championship.

Hansen bested a field of 253 mostly Euro poker pros to bank $655,720. He defeated Stefan Mattson ($346,621) for the title.

The rest of the final table payouts include Thiago Nishijima ($176,934), Andres Vidal ($137,703), Guy Sitbon ($118,166), Jason Castro Martin Lundenius ($98,157).

Other notable cashes include 2006 WSOP final table-ist Erik Friberg ($78,777) and Patrik Antonius ($11,817).

In somewhat related news, no announcement yet whether Kimberly Lansing is who is the new WPT hostess.

In completely unrelated World Poker Tour news, the third annual ESPN Fantasy Poker League draft will take place Wednesday afternoon at 4:30 PM EST. Check back for "live blogging" as one of the Entities will be part of the field.
