India’s Sumit Sapra was also in contention in Event #6 having made Day 2, and he made his deep run count. Unfortunately, he could not make it to the final table and bowed out at 15th place.
Allen Kessler surged into the heads-up holding the chip lead but was soon reduced to the short stack. He battled furiously against eventual winner Lukas Zaskodny to survive and then found a much-needed double up to get back into the game. However, Kessler couldn't go all the way as he found himself in a bad spot when all he had deuces full of jacks against Zaskodny's jacks full. The river offered no hope leaving Kessler with the runner-up prize.

1. Lukas Zaskodny - €93,677
2. Allen Kessler - €57,897
