Sweden's Robert Berglund is the 2016 Battle of Main Event champion and, with no deal in place, will take home the full €160,000.

Coming into the final table sixth in chips Berglund was slightly on the short side but masterfully worked his way up the table throughout the day.His key hand came six-handed when he got the last 1.8m of his chips in with with A K and won, pushing him back up near 4m inchips and giving him some breathing room.

He won another big pot with 99 to bust Flaviano Cammasuli and surged again when he got John Finnighan to fold in a huge hand.

Once he hit 9 million it was all go and after the amazing AA-88-99 hand that stopped Gonzalo Fernandez from taking a massive lead 3-handed, Berglund took control.

With a roughly 3-1 chip lead heading into heads-up he put the pressure on immediately and took John Finnighan out shortly after.

A great performance for the young Swede, who along with best friend and roommate Rasmus Eriksson will take home €227,000 of the massive €879,305 prize pool.

The only Spanish player in final table of Battle of Malta, Gonzalo Fernandez, being the chip leader at the beginnning of the table and in line for a six-figure payout ended being out in fourth position.
