A chop was agreed while play was three handed and after Gary North was eliminated in third place for €10,000 it was left to Morteza and Anthony Fox to battle it out for the title.The lead swung back and forth during heads up play but with the chip counts almost dead level the top two agreed another deal that would see them take home €12,000 apiece but play on for the title. It was all over a hand later with Morteza claiming the title.A mention too to Kelvin Mullis who received a bonus of prize of £5,000 after making the final table having qualified for the Grand Prix via DTDPoker.com.
