The event had four starting flights, spread across two days and witnessed two more days of action before a winner emerged. With this win, Geilich picked up his career`s fourth six-figure score!
After two days of non-stop action, the final day began with 87 players taking to the felts to play down to the title and the quarter of a million dollars top prize.
The final day field had many notables still in running including Team partyypoker pro Roberto Romanello, start of day chip leader Christoph de Meulder, and Jan-Eric Schwippert.
A few other who made the money included Andrew “stato_1” Hulme (188th for €3,000), Martin Jacobson (185th for €3,000), Darryll Fish (143rd for €3,500), Team partypoker’s Anatoly Filatov (130th for €4,000), Maria Ho (128th for €4,000), Jason Wheeler (119th for €4,000), Team partypoker’s Richard Dubini (88th for €4,750), Anthony Spinella (37th for €6,500), and Alex Goulder (28th for €6,500).
With the exit of Micky Blasi in 10th place, the final table play was underway.
The final table began somewhere close to midnight as nine finalist sat down to play. The first one to get eliminated was Jani Vilmunen who finished in ninth for €15,000, followed by Alexandre Mendes of Portugal in eighth place for €20,000.
Next to go were Mauricio Salazar Sanchez in seventh, start of day chip leader Christoph de Meulder in sixth and Martijn Gerrits in fifth, earning €27,500, €38,250 and €54,870 respectively.
Hungary’s Balasz Biri got himself a fourth place finish collecting €75,000 for his efforts, while the third-place and €105,000 prize went to Denmark’s Rasmus Vogt.
With that, the much awaited heads-up was in place between Geilich and Joey Weissman.
The competition wasn’t easy for Geilich as he was up against a WSOP bracelet winner, (Weissman won the $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em event at the 2012 WSOP) with over $1.7 Million in live tournament earnings. However, Geilich himself turned out to be tough nut, and with some great moves and a roaring rail, he sailed through the hurdles and picked up his second largest tournament score. Weissman collected €155,000 consolation prize for his runner-up finish.
