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.
