Finally, Dutch player Alex Hendriks won the €550 Main Event and claimed a colossal chunk of the €159,565 total prize pool after winning over his rivals where he was supported by the Dutch crowd.

The final table line-up witnessed competitors of eight nationalities and professions who came together to participate in the event. Daniel Camus, a pro-football player finished third while as Jussi Mattila, from the field of construction finished up as runner-up.

Poker pro Andy Hills finished ninth after picking €3,065. Colin Guthrie finished eighth place for €4,000.
