Guerra Guerra was only a tiny bit of chips ahead of Jesse Chinni at the bottom of the leaderboard coming into the event's final day. Seven players remained and Guerra Guerra was in second-to-last place. He eventually found a triple up to move into the chip lead with six players remaining. From there, Guerra Guerra maneuvered to heads-up play against Joni Jouhkimainen. The two struck a deal and locked up more than second-place money each before Guerra Guerra went on to win the event for the additional $20,000 they left to play for. When it was all said and done, Guerra Guerra walked away $220,400 richer.

For Guerra Guerra, the score was the second largest of his live tournament career, according to TheHendonMob.com.
