Only eight players were left on the final match day, all eager to triumph in Europe’s largest cardroom. Patrik Antonius got stuck as a bubble boy after half an hour.

The thrill is everything
Before the head-up between Zhang and Kanit began, Zhang agreed to a brief live stream interview: “I have not played many high rollers yet, I play for the thrill and feel heads-up well. It’s probably one of my favorite formats. “And the 22-year-old online high stakes player impressively demonstrated his skills in the fight against Kanit. Lots of aggression and creative moves helped him to victory.
For Zhang, this is by far the best result in a live tournament, with the victory he has more than doubled his tournament winnings. The young Englishman already had a deep run at a partypoker LIVE sponsored event in November 2017, at the Caribbean Poker Party Main Event he reached the 23rd place. His best live cash, he could hit for the victory at the GUKPT London Main Event 2017, £ 113,000.
Zhang has recently started playing some high roller events. “The two € 25,000 here and the € 50,000 thereafter are perfect,” he added. Asked if the style of play would vary and he had to adapt, Zhang replied, “People have started to manipulate their rankings differently. At the beginning I was a bit nervous, but when I saw what the others did, I felt very comfortable. “
