Darcourt later said, ‘this win is amazing, I was eight in chips after the first day and chip leader at the end of day two. I was running really good on day three too but started to slip away. One hand changed the whole tournament for me. I was up against AA with A9 but hit a straight. I will always remember that hand.?
Munz had begun the final table as a chip leader but however lost to Darcourt, he showed great sportmanspirit and even saluted his opponent saying, “darcourt deserved to win.?
