The game on the final table lasted 164 hands. The final was split into two days: on the first day, table played until only three people remained, and the champion was determined on the following day.

The first final day was relatively short, lasting only two and a half levels. There were 43 hands played before the first elimination, but afterwards, players gradually started to be eliminated one by one:

  • Daniel Holzner lost a coin flip with A J against T T of Steven Jones.
  • Juan Maceiras shoved 11BB with K 9 and lost to A T of Toby Lewis.
  • Lewis was then eliminated by Steven Jones, who won a coin flip again with pocket 9s, this time against K J .
  • Sixth place went to Dean Hutchison (pocket 5s against pocket 7s of Daniel Weinman).
  • Ruslan Prydryk finished fifth when he couldn’t buy the right card for his Q T against A J of Daniel Weinman.

After Jan-Peter Jachtmann lost the rest of his stack to Adam Walton’s aces, the final three players remained:

Despite the international composition of the finals, three US players emerged as chip leaders and made it to the 3-max stage. The following are the highlights of the second-to-last day:

Despite the deep stacks, the end of the final day came quickly. In the second hand following the first break, Walton decided to open with pocket 8s. However, Weinman’s squeeze forced him to go all-in with his 80 blinds. Unfortunately for Walton, his opponent was dealt aces. He missed the backdoors and gutshot, resulting in a 3rd place finish.

During the heads-up match, Weinman had a significant advantage of 140 big blinds compared to 60 big blinds, and the game concluded within a short period of time, lasting only half an hour. In the deciding hand, Jones made an opening bet with J 8 and was called by Weinman with K J . The flop was J 5 2 . Weinman check-raised, got called, and then bet 19 big blinds on the 4 turn. Jones, after thinking for about four minutes, shoved all-in, and Weinman called. On the river came A .
