Final Table Recap
The start of the day saw Snejberg gaining the lead from the beginning with his aggression from Tran, called the all-in from Zlatin Penev with a missed straight draw.
There were no eliminations in the first three levels of the day. However, right at the beginning of Level 31, Tran was eliminated first when he was all-in preflop with a dominated hand against Snejberg. Shortly after, Bednar, who started as the short stack, was sent to the rail by Andrian. Norbert Baumgartner then ousted Penev from the final table.
In the three-handed play, Andrian slowly started gaining the lead, with some small pots but the elimination of Baumgartner from himself, put him in commanding position for heads up play.
When heads up started Snejberg tried to play a lot post flop winning some small pots, which would help him close the gap between him and Andrian. In the end, Snejberg fell short after he got in with a dominated hand, Andrian sealed the deal and claimed the win alongside the WSOP bracelet.
