Sweden’s Henrik Johansson won Event #2 €1,100 No-Limit Hold’em Reentry after defeating Adriano Torre-Grossa heads up to win the gold bracelet and claim the first place prize of €129,700.

Torre-Grossa picked up €80,250 for his runner-up finish and Daniel Weinman, who started the day second in chips, finished in fourth for €43,772.

1Henrik Johansson€129,700
2Adriano Torre-Grossa€80,250
3Yaniv Botbol€58,860
4Daniel Weinman€43,772
5Serge Ekert€32,992
6Daniel Laidlaw€25,190
7Jose Obadia€19,498
8Jean-Philippe Tuffery€15,285
9Andrei Konopelko€12,134

Andrei Konopelko was the first player to leave the final table. Konopelki three-bet all-in for 99,000 from the big blind after Johansson opened on the button. Johansson called with the {j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds} which dominated Konopelki’s {7-Clubs}{7-Spades}. The jacks held and Konopelki was gone in ninth place.

Next to leave was Jean-Philippe Tuffery after he moved all-in for just under 14 big blinds with the {q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}, and Torre-Grossa called with the {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}. Tuffery was out in eighth when he didn't improve.

Obadia got his money in good with the {a-Diamonds}{7-Spades} against Johansson’s {a-Spades}{5-Hearts} and flopped a pair of sevens, but the Swede made a straight when the board came {7-Hearts}{4-Spades}{3-Spades}{j-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} and Obadia headed for the cashier's cage in seventh place.

Pro player Daniel Laidlaw left in sixth place. On a board of {6-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{9-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{k-Hearts}, Laidlaw bluff-shoved with ace-high. Torre-Grossa called on every street with the {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}. Laidlaw's {a-}{7-} couldn't beat a pair of kings and he hit the rail.

Ekert busted out in fifth place. He moved all in for around six big blinds with the {a-Clubs}{9-Hearts}, and Botbol called with the {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}. Botbol made the nut flush when the board brought the {5-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{10-Clubs}. Ekert was off to collect €32,992 from the cage.

Daniel Weinman was next to go. On his final hand he three-bet shoved for 292,000 out of the small blind. Johansson called from the big blind, Torre-Grossa, the original raiser, folded, and the hands were tabled.

Weinman: {a-Hearts}{9-Spades}
Johansson: {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}

The flop came {4-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}. Weinman had a backdoor flush draw and a backdoor wheel draw for a possible split pot, but the board ran out with the {j-Diamonds} and {k-Clubs}.

Botbol busted in third place after turning a set. The turn gave him a shot at doubling up with the {4-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} against Johansson’s {k-Spades}{k-Hearts} when the board brought the {2-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{4-Spades}, but the {k-Clubs} hit the river to give Johansson a bigger set.

Heads-up play started with Johansson holding a roughly 1.6-to-1 chip advantage, and 22 hands later he was the champion. Torre-Grossa check-raised all in with the {7-Clubs}{6-Spades} on a flop of {9-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{7-Hearts}, and Johansson called with the {10-Hearts}{9-Spades} for top two pair. The turn and river brought the {a-Clubs} and {a-Hearts}, and Johansson took home a bracelet and first place in Event #2 at the 2013 WSOP Europe.
