It must be a relief for these 8 players to know that, at least, they have already recovered the investment made in the tourney and even received two times more the buy-in. Now it’s just getting some more fun, in case of Bruno Fitoussi and Roland Israelashvili (the lowest stacks in the final table) to see if they can still increase the already guaranteed prize.

this is a very profitable tournament to grind out for "the grinder"- but he is still a long way from the coveted bracelet and a nice paycheck as a bonus, or vice versa...i personally would go for the bonus, and forget about the bracelet- maybe even strike a deal when heads up -dude take the bracelet and let me win the cash..lol
