Final Table Recap
The start of the day saw Josef Snejberg gaining the lead from the beginning with his aggression andTony Tran, previous chip leader, losing ground when he called the all-in of Zlatin Penev with a missed straight draw.
There were no eliminations in the first three levels of the day. However, right at the beginning of Level 31, it was Tony Tran who was eliminated first when he was all-in preflop with a dominated hand against Snejberg. Shortly after, Jan Bednar who started as the short stack, was sent to the rail by Simone Andrian and Zlatin Penev from Norbert Baumgartner.
In the three-handed play, Andrian slowly started gaining the lead, with some small pots but the elimination of Baumgartner from himself, put him in commanding position in the heads up.
When heads up started Snejberg tried to play a lot post flop winning some small pots, which would help him close the gap between him and Andrian. In the end, Snejberg fell short as we faced Andrian, all-in preflop and him being dominated. Andrian sealed the deal and claimed the win alongside the WSOP bracelet.
