Final Table Recap
Guilbert held onto his chip lead from the start of the day as the final table got underway, and quickly got stuck in after sending Vladi Chaoulov to the rail on the very first hand.
As the players behind him battled it out, Pascal Lefrancois was eliminated by Selahaddin Bedir, before Guilbert added another victim with the elimination of Saman Nakhjavani.
The Frenchman wasn't untouchable, however, with Christoph Vogelsang doubling through him. A short while later David Stamm doubled through the German who was left with less than two big blinds.
Vogelsang would double back through Stamm, and also through Seth Davies to stave off elimination as Ali Imsirovic and Stamm fell in sixth and fifth. After laddering twice, Vogelsang followed them out the door in fourth place.
Davies had been quiet at the final table, and had never been under any pressure as players fell around him. Three-handed he was unable to pick out any clear spots and he was eliminated in third by Bedir, with stacks level ahead of heads-up.
Despite leading the entire final table, Guilbert could only sit and watch as Bedir opened up a lead, before the biggest pot of heads-up saw Guilbert open up a 5:1 chip lead. Bedir would double back through the Frenchman to stay alive, but Guilbert would close it out to secure the win.
