Unfortunately, Sean Winter became the bubble boy of the tournament. Jattin entered the final table building a towering stack of 2 million, taking care of his business by knocking out all four of his opponents in under 90 minutes which turned out to be the quickest of the FTs.

It was Alex Foxen to depart in fifth place and ended up earning $58,000. By now the Hungarian player Andras Nemeth had taken the overall lead but couldn’t manage to last any longer, Nemeth was all-in with a pair of Aces and couldn’t take over Jattin’s flush on the turn and with a blank river, Nemeth followed Foxen in the fourth place. With the elimination of George Wolff in 3rd after his pair of tens failed to dominate Jattin’s pair of Kings, heads-up got underway.

Jattin accumulated a stack of 4 million was up against Finland’s Joni Jouhkimainen with 350k chips and it didn’t take too long before Jattin finished the day, finding his second pair on the river, paving way for Jouhkimainen to head towards the payout desk.
