The final table of EPT San Remo ended up being a very thrilling one, and it ended up being Andrey Pateychuck from Russia and Dimitar Danchev from Bulgaria who played heads-up for the title. Both players made a deal (winner would get €680k and the runner-up €600k) and started what turned into an almost 3 hour long heads-up with some sick hands. The heads-up was extremely swingy and it was impossible to say who would walk away with the trophy.

It could easily have been Dimitar Danchev who took home the win, but the poker gods turned against him in an all in when he had 95% advantage on the flop. Andrey Pateychuk got extremely lucky on the turn and river and took home the pot with a runner runner straight. After this hand it only took another 2 hands before Andrey Pateychuk had all the chips and was crowned the EPT San Remo champion.

Final table results:

1. Andrey Pateychuk, Russia, €680,000
2. Dimitar Danchev, Bulgaria, €600,000
3. Daniel Neilson, Australia, PkerStars player, €285,000
4. Barny Boatman, United Kingdom, €225,000
5. Jan Bendik, Slovakia, €170,000
6. Yorane Kerignard, France, PokerStars qualifier, €130,000

And Daniel Neilson finished third. Just like I said, a single player defeating two oponents at the final table would be enough ingredient to provoke great changes in general ranking. And finishing the other player with a 5% probability of winning that hand, awesome!

As predicted a chip lead even n the final table doesn't mean anything although some experienced players could take advantage of that...

Anyway, big congratulations to the winner, it's a really nice title that he won and also a nice prize Big Smile

3 hours heads up is really something.
