Day 1 Highlights
DiouL2 was the first player to leave the final table in ninth place and SeiryokuZen followed them in eighth place with $2,393. juncanaru98 got busted in seventh place after using ace-deuces of spades to make a 9.2 big blinds shove from under the gun when KJJJIDIele folded in the cutoff.
The latter got a significant stack lead due to their aggressive play. KJJJIDIele used an ace-ten of clubs to go all-in forcing other players to fold. d5t6y7 narrowly missed the pot after five-queen-jack-ace-four landed on the board.
KJJIDIele won a $3,000 bounty. Freedan finished sixth with $2,224. Adhmor8 and pluzera followed them in fifth and fourth place respectively. But, none of them got the $10,000 mystery bounty.
Iadutska exited the event in third place with $4,558 setting up a tough heads-up match between KJJJIDIele and d5t6y7. The remaining two players' prize money had an over$2,100 difference.
KJJJIDIele had a 62.6:58 big blind lead over d5t6y7 when their battle began. But tables turned in the first hand after KJJJIDIele used queen-five of clubs to make a four-bet fold.
The players exchanged the stack lead several times for 15 minutes each of them eyeing the $10,000 bounty. d5t6y7 used a nine-deuce to flop two pair and beat KJJJIDIele's pair of aces. The latter got an 8:1 stack lead over the former.
They dealt the tournament's final hand as KJJJIDIele used king-eight to limp and call while d5t6y7 made a three-big blind raise. KJJJIDIele made a 10.4 big blind shove and a 3.1 big blind wager after an eight appeared on the turn, hence prompting d5t6y7 to call. Unfortunately, a seven on the river ended KJJJIDIele's run as a runner-up with $10,771 as d5t6y7 won the largest bounty.
