Some 187 players bought into the $5,200 Titans Event on August 16, and the field was whittled to a more manageable 19 by the time Day 1 concluded. Leonard finished Day 1 second in chips with a stack of 1,620,495, trailing only "DeuceofDuc0" of the Netherlands, who was armed with a massive stack of 4,055,372 chips.
Such luminaries as Artur "marathur1" Martirosian, Viktor "papan9_p$" Ustimov, Mike "SirWatts" Watson, Bert "girafganger7" Stevens, Claas "SsicK_OnE" Segebrecht, and Ilya "Leqenden" Anatsky busted out before the eight-handed final table, the latter popping the final table bubble.
Leonard's fellow Brit, Conor "1_conor_b_1" Beresford was the final table's first casualty. Beresford bowed out in eighth place and collected $33,578. Two Ukrainians joined Beresford in the role of spectators. "Remi Lebo_10" crashed out in seventh for $43,278 with Andrey "Anjeyyy" Novak falling in sixth for a $55,779 score.
Fifth place and $71,891 went to Thiago "KKremate" Crema before Bulgarian hero Georgi "milennial" Sandev dusted off his stack and finished in fourth-place, a finish worth $92,657.
The last three players were now guaranteed a six-figure haul for their $5,200 investment. The legendary Michael "imluckbox" Addamo could not progress further than third, and had to make do with a $119,918 consolation prize. Addamo's exit left Leonard heads-up against DeuceofDuc0 for the title and the not-so-small matter of a $198,379 top prize. The popular Brit could not quite finish the job and busted in second place for $153,918, which capped off a remarkable weekend for the man from the North East.
