Final Table Recap
Coming into the final table it was Jonathan van Fleet who led the final seven, just ahead of Jonathan Proudfoot. However, Proudfoot would make quads to send Leon Sturm to the rail in seventh place and take over the chip lead.
Thomas Boivin fell next at the hands of another big stack, with Andras Nemeth's pocket eights holding against Boivin's queen-jack. The remaining five players would battle back and forth, before two big stacks butted heads resulting in a double for Proudfoot. Nemeth moved all in with ace-king Proudfoot called with queens to double into the chip lead.
Nemeth was left short and was eliminated shortly thereafter. Timo Kamphues would double back into contention, but both he and Christian Rudolph were adrift of Proudfoot at the head of the pack.
Meanwhile, Van Fleet had failed to pick up any traction at the final table and was felled by Proudfoot, giving him a commanding chip lead three handed.
Proudfoot would also eliminate Kamphues in third place to take an even larger chip lead into heads-up. Kamphues defended king-jack in the big blind after Proudfoot opened ten-nine. The king-jack-five gave Kamphues two pair, and he called the continuation bet from his opponent. The turn queen completed Proudfoot's straight, with the money going in on the river to send Kamphues to the rail.
Heads-up lasted only ten minutes before Rudolph shoved ace-queen into the pocket kings of Proudfoot, sealing victory for the British player.
