The final table of the event consisted of 8 players in which all of them competed for the grand prize. The eliminations during the final play were surprising. Zaskodny said this after he won the Main Event: “We were playing for a lot of money, and the pay jumps were quite huge. Even though the table is quite shallow, I understand that nobody wants to be eliminated.”
Zaskodny also stated he and Snejberg were great pals: “One month ago we had a groundbreaking with my garden. And we were talking and saying that we’ve never played heads-up together, even though we’ve played together many years. So one month after that, we got heads up.”
