Rupert Elder has just won EPT San Remo after admitting that his opponent actually played better than him during the heads up encounter. Spare a thought for poor Max Heinzelmann, he was one card away from being the new champion, but now has to settle for his second number two spot in a few short weeks.
The trophy will stay on the British Isles after this final hand.
Max Heinzelmann was first to act and he open shoved and Rupert Elder asked for a count before deciding it was his time to take his shot.
Heinzelmann didn't even have two live cards and was going to need some serious help.
The dream for Heinzelmann was over but he did have over €1 million in combined prize money as consolation (EPT Berlin and San Remo).
Well done Rupert Elder.
