The tournament started at 7 p.m. GMT, but with five hours of late registration, players had the option to start a bit later. At the end of registration, there were 855 players and 304 rebuys to create a total prize pool of $1,159,000. For the winner, it would be a massive payday of $209,779.

Sergio "zcedrick" Aido, Robin "Inho" Ytalo, Sofia "sofialovgren" Lovgren, Fabricio "DrMiKee" Gonzalez, Christopher "NigDawG" Brammer, Mike "SirWatts" Watson and Artem "veeea" Vezhenkov busted pretty quickly and well before the money.

Chris "888Moorman" Moorman, Anton "anteen" Bertilsson, Thomas "WushuTM" Muehloecker and Parker "888tonkaaaa" Talbot also played but didn't manage to reach the stage of the tournament where money was awarded. The bubble burst when "Raiseitup123" lost all his chips and ended in 109th place.

After that, familiar faces like Roman “romeopro33” Romanovsky (34th, $4,868), Kenny "SpaceyFCB" Hallaert (22nd, $5,563) and Adrian "ADRI_ATM" Mateos (18th, $7,881) were all busted before the final table was reached. Austria's "hummar" was the last player not making it to the final table after busting in tenth place for $12,517.

On the final table, it took a while before "Kharmuta" shoved all in with {A-Spades}{K-Spades} and received a call from "wellyxx" with pocket jacks. The pocket pair held up and "Kharmuta" was eliminated in ninth place for $14,835. With eight players left, "ekziter1" was in a great spot to double with ace-king against the ace-queen of "m0zga4", but the board came {4-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{10-Hearts}{6-Clubs}. Belarus' "ekziter1" was eliminated in eighth place for $25,614.

With seven players left, it was Brazil's "mr.salgado" who was knocked out next. The Brazilian finished in seventh place for $36,509. From that moment on, "JohnFoot" took control of the final table. The British player eliminated "que_te_crio" in sixth place for $48,099 before winning a huge pot against "m0zga4".

The Russian 4-bet shipped all in with ace-king against the aces of "JohnFoot" and lost a pot worth of 50% of all chips in play. "m0zga4" finished in fifth place for $59,689 and soon after, "JohnFoot" also eliminated "Ingenious89" in fourth place for $84,607.

With three players left, "JohnFoot" was in total control with almost all the chips in play. But it was Finland's "wellyxx" who busted "Kamcumir" in third place ($113,003) with queen-eight against ace-three.

The heads-up lasted thirty minutes, before "JohnFoot" cracked the aces of "wellyxx" with four-six. Both players made a straight but the Brit had the six-high straight to settle the victory. "JohnFoot" was crowned as the winner for $209,779 while Finland's runner-up had to settle for $150,670.
