Action of the Final Day

Gottlieb cruised at the top from the get-go with a solid lead over the rest of the field but it was no straightforward victory for the Mexico-based MTT grinder. He even dropped right into the middle of the pack before a sudden surge propelled Gottlieb into a commanding lead.

Aliaksei Boika was the first to fall when he flopped top pair with king-queen only to run into the pocket aces of "ILUCKuHARD". Andrea Dato scored a double through Gottlieb only to get it in with ace-king against the rockets of Gottlieb, missing out on a gutshot in the process.

Damian Salas was never able to build a stack and eventually three-bet jammed nines into the pocket tens of Pedro Garagnani. An all-diamond flop left Salas with one out and the miracle never happened. Moments later, Christian Rudolph jammed ace-six suited and was drawing dead on the turn as Juan Pardo's ace-queen nailed a full house.

Pardo then surged into the lead but bluffed at the wrong time to send over a full double to Gottlieb. The demise of the Spaniard came a few hands later when he limp-jammed ace-deuce and Garagnani called with ace-jack to leave Pardo drawing dead on the turn.

From hero to zero - Juan Pardo finished in 5th Place

Gottlieb assumed the top spot with sheer aggression and knocked out Jordan "PiePie" Cristos in fourth place, prevailing with nines versus sevens in a preflop contest. "ILUCKuHARD" then ran an ill-timed bluff with a busted flush and straight draw, which was exposed by Garagnani with a nine-high straight.

Heads-up play started nearly even in chips but Gottlieb quickly pulled into an overwhelming lead. Within 20 minutes, he dismantled Garagnani and closed it out when the Brazilian jammed queen-jack into his aces. And just like that, the final table wrapped up in two hours and 25 minutes to crown yet another champion.
