After a thrilling three-hour heads-up battle against Russia's Pavel Plesuv on Sunday, Spain's Javier Gomez was the last man standing in the World Poker Tour Prague Main Event. Gomez only had about €25k in tournament earnings prior to this tournament, so the €175,000 first-place prize will definitely come in handy!
In total, the Main Event attracted 256 entries to King's Casino in Prague, Czech Republic. The top 27 players earned a minimum of €6k, including poker star Steve O'Dwyer (14th, €10,300). Seven countries were represented at the final table, including Spain, Russia, Bulgaria, Portugal, Algeria and Denmark. Here are the final table results and also a video of the winner:
1st - Javier Gomez - €175,000 2nd - Pavel Plesuv - €120,000 3rd - Fahredin Mustafov - €77,500 4th - Pedro Marques - €57,400 5th - Abdelkader Benhalima - €43,000 6th - Henrik Hecklen - €34,100 7th - Pavel Veksler - €28,200 8th - Sergio Aido - €22,500 9th - Pavel Savin - €17,000
