After 212 hands of poker, it was Spain's Javier Gomez who took down the 2015 partypoker World Poker Tour Prague Main Event title for €175,000 and a $15,400 seat into the WPT Tournament of Champions.

Gomez beat Moldova's Pavel Plesuv heads up after a four-hour battle that lasted 138 hands, while play from six down to two took only 74 hands.

Bulgarian Fahredin Mustafov started the day with a big lead, and short-stacked Henrik Hecklen was the first to get knocked out. On the 17th hand of play, Hecklen found ace-four and busted out to Gomez's king-queen suited. Gomez hit a king on the flop, and Hecklen, the Danish pro, collected €34,100 for his deep run.

A little while later, Gomez doubled through Abdelkader Benhalima. Gomez raised to 70,000, Benhalima three-bet to 215,000, and he then called Gomez's shove. Gomez held queens against Benhalima's king-queen, and the board ran out dry. On the very next hand, Benhalima doubled through Pedro Marques, but two more hands later the field was down to four.

Benhalima jammed ace-nine for 1.3 million in chips, and Gomez made the call with pocket tens. The board brought no help for Benhalima, and he took home €43,000 for his fifth-place finish. This hand gave Gomez a big chip lead, and he didn't relinquish it until deep into the heads-up battle.

Marques busted out in fourth place, and he took home €57,400 after losing a big coin flip with ace-jack suited against Gomez's sixes. Gomez continued to dominate and busted out Mustafov in third place, who couldn't win the coin flip with sevens versus ace-nine of diamonds. Mustafov collected €77,500 for his efforts.

Gomez started the heads-up battle with 6.2 million versus Plesuv's 1.4 million, and after Plesuv managed to take the lead by winning a high volume of small pots, things went back and forth for hours. In the end, Plesuv had Gomez on the ropes, but the Spaniard won three all-in pots in a row to secure his first WPT victory. Plesuv collected €120,000 for his second-place finish, while Gomez received a big paycheck worth €175,000.
