Norway's Espen Jorstad outlasts Adrian Attenborough to win World Series of Poker

Norway's Espen Jorstad won the World Series of Poker Main Event for $10 million in earnings at the Bally's Event Center in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Jorstad outlasted Adrian Attenborough and Michael Duek at the final table.

Attenborough called Jorstad in the heads-up, setting Jorstad up for a dramatic victory once he revealed his winning hand: a full house.

Attenborough took home $6 million for second place, while Duek won $4 million in earnings by finishing third.

Espen's victory is the fourth consecutive win by an international player, but the first by a Norwegian.

Following the win, Jorstad immediately called his mom.

"It was a very emotional call," Jorstad said. "She could barely speak. She is my biggest fan, so to be able to share that moment with her was very special."
