Final Table Recap
The first two eliminations in the money were Brunno "botteonpoker" Botteon and Christian "WATnlos" Rudolph before the final table of seven was reached, with a familiar face in the lead.
Michael "imluckbox" Addamo put his chips to good use, eliminating Vyacheslav "VbV1990" Buldygin to increase his chip lead. The Australian looked poised to use his typical final table aggression to great effect, only to bluff off a significant portion of his stack to Stevens.
Addamo did regain the chip lead with the elimination of Conor "1_conor_b_1" Beresford in sixth, but Stevens suddenly sprung into life. The Belgian cleaned up the final four eliminations in less than 20 minutes, sending Bujtas home in fifth before doubling through Addamo to move atop the leaderboard.
He then swept former chip leader "BoldSergey" and Badziakouski aside before finishing off Addamo in the very first hand of heads-up.
