After three hours of playing, he received the EUR93,000 prize, as he defeated Russian Alexandr Moiseev, who placed second and won EUR62,500. The final table also had Bulgarian Ivo Donev, who had won a WSOP bracelet in 2000.
Fifty four Romanians

The best place, the ninth, belonged to Teodor Gheoarca, who pocketed a EUR3,450 prize. The tournament started on July 22 and ended on the 28th, being hosted by Casino & Hotel International in the beautiful Bulgarian resort.
