The final table ended up being an anglicised affair along with Schwartz there were two other pros representing the Union Flag.



Unfortunately for Schwartz his game ended prematurely when he ran his Ad-Qc-Td-2c hand with two diamonds into a 3s-3d-2d-Ah hand with two lower diamonds. The board was Qd-Tc-7c-5d but his opponent’s only out the remaining non club three hit the river and ended Schwartz's run in 5th place.
