It was a field with a lot of pros that filled the Casino Barcelona for the two-day event. David Peters was the last of them to leave empty-handed on Day1 after a three-way clash with Eiler and Juan Pardo Dominguez. Peters' ace-nine stood no chance against the pocket aces of Eiler and the pocket queens of Pardo Dominguez. That hand lifted Eiler into the top spot, and the chips were bagged up right after.

Kristen Bicknell and Alex Foxen, poker's current power couple, both reached the final table and bowed out in 8th and 7th place respectively. Bicknell got unlucky when her pocket jacks were cracked by the pocket tens of Kempe.

The casualties after that kept coming at a quick pace and Spanish superstar Adrian Mateos, the proud owner of no less than WSOP bracelets, had to settle for fourth place.

Erik Seidel was the short stack when play was down to the last three and his ace-ten wouldn't hold up against the nine-seven of Eiler, who got there with a four card flush.

Eiler entered the heads-up with a distinctive lead over Kempe and dispatched his countryman within half an hour when holding up with ace-nine versus ace-six.
