Final Table

Teun "tinnoemulder" Mulder was the first to go at the final table after running his ace-nine into the queens of Veldhuis, who entered the table as the short stack. It wasn't long before Veldhuis knocked out Andras "probirs" Nemeth in eighth place when both players rivered flushes but Veldhuis had the better of it.

"DrawindDead" had a great run as they doubled their stack multiple times before ultimately busting in fifth place for $54,936 when their big slick couldn't fare against Veldhuis' ten-eight. The final table action proved to be all Veldhuis as he knocked out Christian "WATnlos" Rudolph in third place for $83,866 when Veldhuis' nines held against the opponent's ace-deuce.

Heads-Up

Dzivielevski began heads-up play with the chip advantage after having won a sizable pot against Rudolph with a full house and knocking out Thomas "MarToMchat" Boivin with two-pair. Veldhuis quickly leveled things out by taking down a few medium-sized pots.

Heads-up action lasted just 18 hands as the two players got into a pre-flop raising war that climaxed when Dzivielevski five-bet shoved with ace-king and Veldhuis called off with ace-queen.
