Recapping the event, Day 1 wrapped up in just under eight hours with the final seven established and numerous notable players turning a profit namely, Simon Klas Lofberg (10th), Joao Simao (12th), Daniel Negreanu (19th), Michael Watson (20th), Niklas Astedt (21st), Paul Teoh (28th), Nicolo Molinelli (30th), and Hok Yiu Lee (32nd). 

The final table was another all international mix with every player flying a different flag. Among them were two Natural8 players Vincas “seimininkas” Tamasauskas (Lithuania) and Australia’s David “MPEW299” Wang.

The first hour of play witnessed plenty of action with Tamasauskas and Benjamin Wilinofsky taking turns at the top while ailing Wang quadrupled his short stack to stay in the running. Hungary’s Benjamin Lakatos plunged to 6 bb then recovered on a double up off Florian “Holdemking17” Fuchs. For the day’s entering chip leader Guzman, he got into a heated pot against Wilinofsky that sent him crashing out. On a raised pot preflop, the cards came 7cKh9s. Guzman check-shoved his huge 36 bb stack with KdQhJh10s top pair, got snap called by Wilinofsky with AsKc10d7h two pair, the turn 2s and river Ks further improved Wilinofsky to a boat to collect the massive pile and oust Guzman in 7th place. 

Leading up to the next bust, Wilinofsky lost three all in showdowns with Lakatos scooping up two to earn his time at the top. Lakatos proceeded to rail Fuchs in 6th place then Wilinofsky finished off Wang right after. At four handed, Tamasauskas dragged in a big pot against Lakatos while Wilinofsky plunged after paying a double up to Fernando “JNandez87” Habegger and losing more to Lakatos. He dropped to 3.5 bb which Lakatos claimed.

Three handed play was fully dominated by Tamasauskas who grinded to chip lead and never relinquished. He eliminated Habegger in 3rd place to bring in 84 bb to heads up to Lakatos’ 27 bb. It took less than ten minutes to close it out. On a board 2d4c9sAs2c, Lakatos jammed with Ad10h5s3c straight, Tamasauskas had Kh9h8c2h full house to ship it and win his first ever WSOP title and gold bracelet.
