Final Table Action

Viktor Ustimov entered the final table with a slight chip lead over Adrian Mateos and Samuel Vousden who were right behind him. In the middle of the pack were Pablo Brito and Michael Addamo and on the short stack side were Timothy Adams, Niklas Astedt, Laurynas Levinskas, and ''Vershinin''.

Although piloting a middle stack, Michael Addamo started the final table very aggressively, three-betting on the very first hand and four-bet shoving on the second hand with ace four to find himself all-in and at risk against the pocket jacks of Brito, sending Addamo to the rail in ninth place.

Then, it was Adrian Mateos's time to exit in eighth place after being on the wrong side of a massive cooler where his kings faced the aces of Vousden. ''Verishnin'' was also a victim of Ustimov's aces and as his king queen didn't find any help, he was eliminated seventh. The eliminations of Timothy Adams and Niklas Astedt from Samuel Vousden, in fifth and fourth place respectively, gave a huge chip advantage to Vousden going three-handed.

In the three-handed play, Vousden applied pressure to his opponent, taking a lot of small pots until both players were left with less than twenty big blinds. First, it was Brito whose nines couldn't beat the jack ten of Vousden, fininshing third and then Ustimov who also suffered a cruel cooler, when his flush was bested by the nut flush of Vousden.
