lots of big names still in the hunt, which is usually not the case nowadays...most of the time total unknown players occupy the final 50 or so...some of them are called pro's, but probably only those who call them pro's actually know them at all Smile
potentially an all poker celebrities final table is on...

Our man bad beat for many euros Disagree
Hi ended 15. =37000€

In an unbelievable turn of events Goran Mandic has just been knocked out! The action started when the young Croatian raised to 42,000 under the gun plus one and Steve O'Dwyer three-bet to 115,000 from the cutoff. The action was folded back to Mandic who four-bet to 219,000 and O'Dwyer went into the tank. After about 20 seconds he moved all in and Mandic snap-called.
Mandic: JJ
O'Dwyer: 33
Mandic was all in for right around 900,000 chips and this hand was crucial for both players as O'Dwyer had him only covered by a little bit. The dealer put out 54T on the flop and O'Dwyer was looking for running straight cards or a three.
The turn brought the 2 and many players gasped as O'Dwyer picked up the straight draw. When the river brought the 6 the American made his straight. Everyone at the table and standing around the table was shocked by this river card and Mandic shook his head as he left the tournament in 15th place. O'Dwyer remained quiet and raked in the chips.
"How would you stack these?" O'Dwyer asked a little later to Jason Mercier who started laughing but helped his opponent out.
"Now that's a horrible problem to have," Grant Levy chipped in as O'Dwyer is now second in chips behind Andrew Pantling.

The €10,000 buy-in main event gave us inarguably the best final table ever assembled from an open event on any tour ever. There were four Team PokerStars Pros, two former EPT winners and the cream of the crop from three continents.
Seat 1 - Jake Cody, Team PokerStars Pro, United Kingdom, 1,633,000
Seat 2 - Jason Mercier, Team PokerStars Pro, United States, 824,000
Seat 3 - Andrew Pantling, Canada, 4,180,000
Seat 4 - Grant Levy, Australia, 786,000
Seat 5 - Steve O'Dwyer, Ireland, 4,452,000
Seat 6 - Daniel Negreanu, Team PokerStars Pro, Canada, 1,581,000
Seat 7 - Noah Schwartz, United States, 1,068,000
Seat 8 - Johnny Lodden, Team PokerStars Pro, Norway, 1,402,000
