Among the players in the ‘Opening Event’ battle was Ian Simpson, Espen Uhlen Jorstad, and Sam Grafton. Jorstad and Grafton both found a place in the money, with latter lasting the longest and ultimately departing in 24th place.

When the action reached the final table, Serbia’s ‘exPROsjak‘ was first to go when they ran ace-ten into ace-queen and was quickly followed to the rail by Peru’s ‘n0sferatv‘ and ‘lNCURSIO‘.

Malta’s ‘Farrugia_1‘ took sixth place after they ran king-jack into king-queen, with Lithuania’s ‘IMDool‘ exciting in fifth place following their shove with ace-jack unable to beat pocket kings.

jmsantos10‘ missed out on a podium position and departed in fourth place when pocket kings held against ace-ten, and former chip leader ‘Alex_Vol‘ had to settle for third place when their brave call with two pair couldn’t match up against a full house.

sh4xuR7‘ held a 4/1 chip lead heads-up and never looked back, ultimately holding with ace-three against king-three to seal the title and send ‘pokerdave128‘ to the rail as runner-up.
