Level 39: 1,000,000/2,000,000 (2,000,000)
Both Kjetil Hanstvedt and Arthur Navellou agreed to a deal with each player earning €115,000. After that, blinds went up and mayhem took place with Navellou winning the title which includes the MPF Grand Event trophy and the Unibet DeepStack Open championship belt.
The first hand was a coinflip with Hanstvedt getting it in with K♣9♣ against Navellou’s 5♠5♣. Fives ran clean for Navellou on the J♥2♠4♠7♠7♥ board to double up Navellou and leave Hanstvedt on fumes.
Hanstvedt doubled up shortly after when his K♦J♣ proved to be good against Navellou’s K♥10♥ with the 9♦J♦9♣3♦8♦ running out on the board.
However, Handtvedt’s comeback was short-lived as shortly after his Q♠5♥ didn’t get there against Navellou’s K♥10♦ on the 10♥9♠8♠2♥K♠ board. Hanstvedt previous took fifth place in the Grand Event last event in April for €20,150 and improved on it tremendously this time around.
Meanwhile, congrats to Arthur Navellou for winning the title after more than 15 hours on the final day. We will post the full payouts shortly with a recap to come tomorrow.
Arthur Navellou – 72.2 million
