Brandstrom had a hard time throughout the tournament, even though he started the final day as the chipleader.“I made a comeback on Day 1 and was down to 12k and spun it up a bit. And last night I was down to nine bigs with 15 players left and made a big rush from there, ended up as the chip leader. Marton played very good. I probably didn’t play my A-Game but the cards came my way,” Brandstrom added.
