When it was time for heads up it was between Nadil Matta and Omar Geadah but it was shown that Matta´s stack was to big for Geadah and it was over pretty fast.
In the last hand Geadah was moving all in pre-flop with J-5. After some thinking Matta called with 9-8. Flop came 9-A-8. Turn was J and a little hope for Geadah but the river was a 3 and Matta won the tournament
and $606,000 in prize money. This was the biggest prize money in the Lebanese Poker history.
