The final table featured... Angelos Pettas, Luca Marchetti, Vangelis Kaimakamis, Andrey Ivley, Kale Halstead, Darko Stojanovic, Philipp Zukernik, and Mykhailo Gutyi.
Luca Marchetti missed a gutterball and Florian Sarnow's pocket Queens held up. Marchetti hit the bricks in ninth place. Shorty Andrey Ivlev said goodbye in eighth place. Short-stacked Philipp Zukernik got picked off in seventh place by Mykhailo Gutyi's Big Slick.
Kale Halstead made a final stand with pocket fives but lost to Gutyi's Queen-nine. The Aussie went out in sixth place. Darko Stojanovic made a final stand but Vangelis Kaimakamis called with pocket ochos. Kaimakamis flopped a set and Stojanovic bounced in fifth place.
Angelos Pettas ran into pocket fives and that's all she wrote for the Greek, who hit the rail in fourth place. Vangelis Kaimakamis was dunzo in third place, which set up the finale between Sarnow and Gutyi.
When heads-up began, Sarnow trailed 7.2M to 2.3M in chips. On the second hand, Sarnow doubled up and got back into contention. Alas, that was too little, too late.
Florian Sarnow got knocked out in second place and settled on a runner-up share worth €37,678. Mykhailo Gutyi from the Ukraine won the tournament, the bracelet and €61,299 in cash.
