The event, which had a field of 129 players, lasted 3 days, during which big names like Negreanu, Ian Hora or the also young poker promise Charlie Carrel couldn't make it.
The final Heads up turned to be between John Smith, ex US marine and fan favorite of the tournament, and the 22-year-old Adrian Mateos. Although the HU was quite even the whole time, the Spaniard was leading by stack most of the time. The Hand #73 would bring the victory to Mateos when Smith got his remaining chips into the middle with queen high against Mateos who held straight and flush draws.
