Thomas Lindbjerg Wins!
It took over twelve hours to battle down from our final twenty-four to our champion, but a worthy winner it was. Thomas Lindbjerg will walk away AU$130,021 richer after a great showing in today's six-handed tournament.

With a final table full of great players, Lindbjerg rose above to claim hold of the chip lead for most of the final table. With heads up beginning in equal circumstances, Lindbjerg found a crucial double and never let go to eventually oust Noah Schwartz.

Not only will he be heading home with the AU$130,021 prize money, but he will also head home with the title of Event #14 and proud owner of the Gold Championship Ring.

Congratulations to Thomas Lindbjerg and all the other cash winners and final table participants.
