On his way to the final Vladimir was able to take out James Sudworth, David Steicke, Brahim Hajji and Alex Keating.
After working his way through the field, Vladimir would face Juha Helppi in heads up play. Helppi would find he was low in chips and this would play to Vladimir’s advantage. On the final hand Helppi reraised all-in with the last of his chips and Vladimir made the call.
