Ivan Denev did make it all the way to the final table, but he was the first to head for the showers, doing so with a $1,351 score for his seventh-place exit.
Erik Bystrom ($3,631) and Germany’s Carlo Heinze ($3,153) joined the ever-growing list of busted players before the eliminations of Saulo Mazarin ($4,587) and Pavlos Xanthopoulos ($5,340) sent the PLO Main Event into the heads-up stage.
Juhasz found himself heads-up against Finland’s Mathias Siljander, a player with several solid results online at PartyPoker and PartyPoker LIVE events. Siljander enjoyed another great result here, but it was a second-place finish this time. The Finn banked $8,172 while Juhasz helped himself to an $18,417 payday thanks, partly, to $11,257 worth of bounties.
