Andras "probirs" Nemeth led the field into the final day and retained the top spot ahead of Thomas "WushuTM" Muehloecker when the final table of the last nine was formed within half an hour of play.

Frantic Early Stage and Deepstacked Final Table
With six of the final 15 contenders below or just above 20 big blinds, an action-packed early stage was not unexpected and it took a mere 25 minutes to form the final table. Juan "Malaka$tyle" Pardo busted in the very first hand with jack-ten suited against the ace-king suited of Niklas "Lena900" Astedt and it was a sign of things to come in the minutes after.

Mathias "giftmyra" Joelsson lasted only a few minutes and bowed out while Christian "WATnlos" Rudolph recovered from just five big blinds and made several pay jumps.

Mulder turned quads fours and Addamo eventually called it off on the river with two pair.
Sam "SamSquid" Grafton got it in good with ace-king against the ace-queen of Thomas "WushuTM" Muehloecker but a queen on the flop spelled the end for the jovial Brit. And once Rudolph was gone in fifth place, a lengthy affair could be expected with an average stack of more than 70 big blinds.
Back and forth ensued and Muehloecker correctly called a river jam by Andras "probirs" Nemeth to take over the lead. However, 15 minutes later the Austrian was gone in fourth place after he lost a chunk to Mulder and Nemeth then hit a runner-runner straight to reduce the field to the final trey.
Astedt doubled through Nemeth to get back into contention and the Hungarian then got a taste of his own medicine when Mulder rivered a straight to end his tournament in third place. It could have been all but over the very next hand when Astedt was dominated with sixes versus jacks but the Swede turned a set. Ultimately, it was just a small bump on the road to victory from there for Mulder, who closed it out with a bluff-catcher on a six-high board.
