At the start of the Main Event, 346 players, full of expectations, took their seats at the Empire Casino in London. After 3 days of poker, 22 players remained and the big favorites to win the tournament were Phil Ivey, Viktor Blom (Isildur1) and Roland de Wolfe. However, only Roland de Wolfe (WSOP bracelet winner, EPT and WPT titles) made it to the final table. At the final table, de Wolfe continued playing very well and stayed in the top of the field for quite some time, but after losing 2 all ins against Nicolas Levi, he was short stacked and about to go out of the tournament. But somehow he still managed to stay alive while Nicolas Levi, who took the most of his chips, got knocked out in 5th place. Roland de Wolfe was, however, eliminated shortly after in 4th place.
