€2 buy-in, €6,500 GPP

The €2 tournament with a GPP of €6,500 recorded 3,159 (-1.8%) entries last game week.

Siggen's winning squad consists of only 4 teams: Burnley and Sheffield at the back, and Man City with cheap West Ham up front. Fleck and Wood also helped to create a nearly ideal team for this round.

ivan4eg took second place with the side that looks similar to the champion's one. It is the cheap picks that made the difference: McNeil scored 5 points while Wood had 7, and Wolves' picks turned out not to be as efficient as West Ham's ones.
