Saturday 1 December 2018 the Finale of the 2018 EGC Grand Prix was held in Brussel, where on Sunday the European Team tournament would also be held.
In the final round Geert Verdoodt (BE) played a draw versus Phillipe Bergiers. This lead to an interesting ending of the tournament:
Phillipe Bergiers with 3 wins, 2 draws played a deciding round of Barrage vs Dennis Baas (also 3 wins, 2 draws).
Winning this series made Phil the first Belgian player to win the Grand Prix Finale!
Marc Korozmezy won the third prize.
