EPT9 Monaco: David Dayan freezes out Duhamel and MacPhee, wins €64,600

Brazilian David Dayan tonight bagged €64,600 and a PokerStars trophy in one of the first side events here at the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo®Casino European Poker Tour Grand Final. Dayan may have had to beat Brit Senh Ung heads-up but it's the 5th and 6th place finishers that most will recognise; World Champion Jonathan Duhamel and EPT champ Kevin MacPhee.

Duhamel bust the Main Event yesterday and MacPhee was one of the first to go today from the Day 1B field. Today's cash should soften those blows somewhat.
