Final Table Action

Zamorano entered the final day in the chip lead, followed by Switzerland's Samiyel Duzgun and Russia's Ruslan Bakhtiev. Players were 65 big blinds deep on average but this didn't stop some big action straight out of the door.

On the second hand of the final table, Comeron eliminated two players when his aces held strong against the kings held by Israel's Shlomi Shimoni (ninth - €13,200) and the jacks held by Ukraine's Vladyslav Pohribnyi (eighth - €16,400).

It took several hours for another elimination to take place when Comeron's aces held against Duzgen's eights. Duzgen went home with the seventh-place prize of €19,900, while Comeron skyrocketed into the chip lead.

Shortly after, Comeron eliminated the short-stacked Alexey Romanov in sixth place for €26,400 when his ace-jack held against king-five.

Next to go was Turkey's Seref Dursun Anar in fifth place for €35,200 in a hand that caused a discussion on the table when it was completed. Anar three-bet jammed a short-stack with king-jack and was called by Comeron with king-eight and by Zamorano with aces, who completed the action. Comeron and Zamorano checked down the {9-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} board and the action was down to four players. Zamarano retook the chip lead after the hand.

Bakhtiev then hit the rail in fourth place for €47,400 when his suited big slick didn't get there against Comeron's kings. Comeron had the lead for the second time at the final table after the hand was in the books.

Iran's Milad Oghabian was then ousted in third place for €74,000 after he got his 30 big blinds in with a suited big slick and didn't get his hand to hold against king-queen suited.

Comeron entered heads-up play with a short chip lead but Zamorano was able to snag it back quickly during heads-up play. A short while later, the duo agreed to a deal with each player going home with €164,000. Zamorano had the lead at the time and was declared the official winner.

Zamorano Takes the Lead

Jaxon • Level 32: 400,000-800,000, 800,000 ante

David Comeron checked with about 4 million in the pot with the {j-Spades}{q-Spades}{10-Spades}{6-Diamonds} on the board before he called a bet of 2 million from Antonio Saez Zamorano.

Comeron led out for 2 million after the {2-Clubs} completed the board on the river. Zamorano raised to 11 million and Comeron folded.

A hand or two later, play stopped for the duo to discuss a deal.

30 Minute Blind Levels

Milad Oghabian Eliminated in 3rd Place (€74,000)

Milad Oghabian opened for 2.2 million before David Comeron three-bet jammed more than covering the 30 big blinds his opponent had to start the hand. Oghabian snap-called and a crowd emerged.

David Comeron: {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}
Milad Oghabian: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}

It was looking like Oghabian would take the chip lead after the {6-Spades}{7-Clubs}{3-Clubs} came on the flop. However, the Spanish rail erupted after the {q-Spades} came on the turn to pair-up Comeron. The {9-Diamonds} came on the river and Oghabian was eliminated in third place for €74,000.

No heads-up deal was discussed and play resumed shortly after Oghabian headed to the cashier.

Milad Oghabian Doubles with Snowmen

David Comeron opened the button for 2.2 million before Milad Oghabian jammed for 11 million from the big blind. Comeron snap called and turned over {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts} and the race was on against the {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} held by Oghabian.

Oghabian's rail was shouting for the {8-Spades} and as fate would have it, it landed on the {9-Hearts}{8-Spades}{3-Hearts} flop.

"But there are hearts," said Obhabian perhaps nervous about a flush completing.

The {k-Diamonds} came on the turn followed by the {4-Spades} on the river and Oghabian doubled up.
