In that tournament took part alot of famous players like Bertrand Grospellier, Matas Cimbolas, Martin Jacobson, Jeff Gross, Sam Trickett and Adrian Mateos.
Simon won $330,000 for the first place at this tournament and that was the second largest win of his career. Just a month ago he finished first at the EPT Barcelona Main Event and won $1.4 million, and this spring he won over $200,000 at WPTDeepStacks Barcelona.

The start of the final day for Simon was very bad, first he lost the chip leader stack and then dropped to 13BB. In the heads-up, he was confronted by Ryan Mandara, who had twice biggest stack. Simon Brandstrom immediately levelled the lead and after the seventh hand he was already celebrating his victory.
