| freitez had a big chip lead when final table started and he was a favorite to win it, but still nothing is easy in such a big tournament. he did well winning it and got nice first prize for it. |

| Big congrats for Ivan Freitez, i actually watched some hands he played at the final table and i really liked his style of play. I agree that he had a good stack at the beginning of the final table but of course all this things are pretty much unimportant since everything can change at the final table of this kind of tournaments like EPT or WSOP. |
I was almost 100% sure that the big prize would not be win by a poker player from Spain or Brazil, they usually play way too aggressive for tournaments, they style of play could work on cash tables but not on tournaments, but this is a strictly personal opinion. I also want to congratulate Torsten Brinkmann for the second place, he really played very good at the final table and i know him from the online world where he is also a very good poker player.

| Congratulations for Freitez, he played very good and he got a good prize for doing so |
The stack thing is not very important i agree with Macubaas.

| Wow, and the pokerstars qualifier made till the 4th place, what a great prize for him. Dont know him from anywhere but i guess it should be the lower in the ranking among all the players in the final table, and he did very well. |
