The tournament attracted 768 players, the prizepool of $1,536,000 for the Freezeout event just topping the $1.5million guarantee and promising 87 players a payday.

The field had its fair share of big names, with Max 'goodeh99' Silver, Stefan 'baeks22' Schillhabel and Simon 'Igorkarkarof' Pedersen in the money.

Come the final table though and it was Talbot, Anton Wigg and England’s Phil 'Grindation' McAllister who most fans would recognise, although Wigg was destined for an early exit…

VladtheSlaye: 9♠ 9♥
Anton Bomber&Granater Wigg: A♣ 10♣
Board: 2♦ 3♠ 6♣ 4♣ 6♠

The Ukrainian would go on to challenge Talbot for the title after his Canadian opponent had dismissed McAllister in 3rd place, a $140,231 consolation payday for the Englishman.

Parker 'tonkaaaa' Talbot: A♠ K♦
Philip 'Grindation' McAllister: A♣ J♥
Board: 5♣ K♥ 2♦ 9♥ 10♠

Vlad’s 2:1 chip lead didn’t last long, however, with Talbot taking two huge pots and quickly putting the ‘Slayer’ on the ropes, pocket nines returning to finish off the challenger…

VladTheSlaye: K♥ Q♣
Parker 'tonkaaaa' Talbot: 9♥ 9♦
Board: 9♣ J♠ A♠ 7♥ 4♠
