The Canadian came out victorious, walking away with a well deserved $315,158 prize money after an excellent outing. The Austrian finished second place, which saw him walking away with a $255,485 prize money, as he was outplayed by Adams in the closing stages of the game.

At the final hand dealt, Arends min-raise to 400,000 with Adams responding with a pair of queens in the hole and three-bet. Arends reacted with a four-bet shove for 7,166,104 total, Adams instantly called it.
