Action of the Final Day

Gottlieb cruised at the top from the get-go with a solid lead over the rest of the field but it was no straightforward victory for the Mexico-based MTT grinder. He even dropped right into the middle of the pack before a sudden surge propelled Gottlieb into a commanding lead.

Aliaksei Boika was the first to fall when he flopped top pair with king-queen only to run into the pocket aces of Matthias "ILUCKuHARD" Lipp. Andrea Dato scored a double through Gottlieb only to get it in with ace-king against the rockets of Gottlieb, missing out on a gutshot in the process.

Damian Salas was never able to build a stack and eventually three-bet jammed nines into the pocket tens of Pedro Garagnani. An all-diamond flop left Salas with one out and the miracle never happened. Moments later, Christian Rudolph jammed ace-six suited and was drawing dead on the turn as Juan Pardo's ace-queen nailed a full house.

Pardo then surged into the lead but bluffed at the wrong time to send over a full double to Gottlieb. The demise of the Spaniard came a few hands later when he limp-jammed ace-deuce and Garagnani called with ace-jack to leave Pardo drawing dead on the turn.

From hero to zero - Juan Pardo finished in 5th Place

Gottlieb assumed the top spot with sheer aggression and knocked out Jordan "PiePie" Cristos in fourth place, prevailing with nines versus sevens in a preflop contest. Matthias "ILUCKuHARD" Lipp then ran an ill-timed bluff with a busted flush and straight draw, which was exposed by Garagnani with a nine-high straight.

Heads-up play started nearly even in chips but Gottlieb quickly pulled into an overwhelming lead. Within 20 minutes, he dismantled Garagnani and closed it out when the Brazilian jammed queen-jack into his aces. And just like that, the final table wrapped up in two hours and 25 minutes to crown yet another champion.

Pedro Garagnani open-shoved for the final 3,627,450 and was snap-called by Lev "LevMeAlone" Gottlieb.

Pedro Garagnani: {q-Clubs}{j-Spades}
Lev "LevMeAlone" Gottlieb: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}

The Brazilian ensured to remain live after the {j-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} flop but saw his outs reduced to four when the {a-Diamonds} fell on the turn. Only one of the kings in the deck would do it but the {j-Hearts} river gave Gottlieb aces full of jacks.

Garagnani's second deep run of the festival ended in second place and he takes home $451,926. For Gottlieb, it is the second major victory on GGPoker, which is sweetened by the top prize of $586,074.

A recap of today's action is to follow.

After the {10-Spades} turn, Gottlieb check-called for another 2,100,000, and the {5-Hearts} river was eventually checked through. Gottlieb won the pot with {10-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} for tens and sixes, as Garagnani had missed a gutshot with the {k-Diamonds}{7-Spades}.
