It took over 300 hands, nearly 18 hours of play, and seven eliminations, but the 2014 PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino EPT Grand Final €10,600 Main Event has finally come to a close. Capturing the title and the massive €1.24 million top prize was Italy's Antonio Buonanno — the only player at the final table not to qualify for the event online.

The day was long, but eventful, and in the end it was Jack Salter and Buonanno left to duke it out in what would be an epic heads-up battle. The two traded blows, double ups, bluffs, and value bets for several long hours into the breakfast hours in Monaco, but Salter would end up in second place.

After a failed float attempt followed by a long tank that resulted in a fold caused by the time clock running out on Salter, he was left at a 3-1 chip deficit to his Italian counterpart. Then, things were quickly over.

On the final hand, Buonanno raised with the {A-Spades}{4-Hearts} and Salter shoved with the {K-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}. Buonanno called and held as the board ran out a rather uneventful {J-Hearts}{9-Spades}{2-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{3-Spades}.
