Credit: Neil StoddartLeo Margets stopped Victoria Coren from taking a second title in Monte Carlo at the European Poker Tour Grand Final when she finished things off with A-Q versus Coren’s A-9 in the €1,000 women’s event.

The Spanish pro takes home €16,850 for besting a field of 47 which included some of the world’s most dangerous female pros such as Vanessa Selbst and Xuan Liu.

The final day kicked off with 12 players (only six would be paid) and within a half hour the final nine were found after sending Maya Geller, Coralie Nauder, and Coren’s recent final heads-up opponent Melanie Weisner to the rail.

Coren and Margets made a deal before heads-up play began and after some chips flew back and forth, it was Margets who came out on top. Margets was delighted as she had previously cashed in the main event and is planning on using her winnings to reinvest in her bankroll just in time for this year’s World Series of Poker. The spaniard turned pro in 2009 after finishing 27th in the WSOP main event (she was also the last woman standing).

Here are the final table results (based on two-way deal):

1. Leo Margets €16,850
2. Victoria Coren €10,950
3. Jan Combes €6,380
4. Nicole Kotrinos €4,560
5. Ingrida Klassen €3,650
6. Darya Hulyk €3,200
