Mateusz Moolhuizen of Holland has won the first Unibet Open main event of 2011 taking down €117,000 for his victory in Malta at the weekend.

Moolhuizen topped the 293-strong field in the €1,650 buy in event which created a prize pool of €417,525 at the Casino at Portomaso on the Mediterranean island on Sunday, clinching his victory with the heads up defeat of fellow Dutchman Tobias Peters.

Moolhuizen started the heads up duel as chip leader with 2.96 million compared to Peters 1.4 million but the lead swung one way, then the other, then back again during the three-hour session.

The final hand saw Mollhuizen push all in as chip leader with K-10 which dominated Peters K-6 which could not improve on the board thus sending Peters to the rail with €76,000 for second place.

The final table payouts for Unibet Open Malta were:

1: Mateusz Moolhuizen -- €117,000
2: Tobias Peters -- €76,000
3: Sampo Rynanen -- €49,000
