Kowssarie eventually finished 4th, dropping out at Level 26 (10,000/40,000/80,000): Speidel opened to 160,000 from the button, ‘TerrorOfSweden’ went all-in with the few chips he had left and the Australian insta-called.

Speidel won with a full house.

After this, the finale was over soon. Speidel sent Mile Krstanoski to the rail as well and Kenneth Wong has never really had a chance in the heads-up, either. In the final hand, Wong pushed in on his pocket nines, Speidel called with aces and his hand held out.
