Santerne waited more than 40 minutes for a decision. When he finally entered the tournament, he had 6 BBS, the smallest stack in the 7-player tournament. His opening began with a pre-flop all-in on Pedro. With A♠4♥ against 10♠3, Santerne went all-in on the 9 ♠4 ♣8♠J ♠J ♥ board to give himself some breathing room.

In the 6-max table, Santerne took the lead with K♥Q♥ and pushed all-in with Eelis Parssinen, who was a few chips behind. The Finn had the worst chance and fell by the wayside with 5♠5♣ on a J♥Q♣3♠10♠9♣ board.

A few steps later, Santerne also sends “visomar” home. He found one of his exits on a 9♥Q♣9♣7♠2♣ board with Q♥10♣ against A♦5♣ and won another pot.

Santerne’s 4th hand started off really well. In a short period of time, he twice doubled his stack and took the lead. The European defeated KCheckK♣ on a single throw with A♥A♣ and defeated world champion Damián Salas.

In the third game of the three-person game, Pedro grabbed the chips “spaise411” and advanced to heads-up with a lead of nearly 6:1. The Portuguese player won the title:
