Action at the Final Table
Vousden used ace-seven of hearts to make an all-in call while monzemann used queen-nine of spades to open. The former made an ace flop and the latter turned a spade flush sending their opponent packing in ninth place.
Jorstad followed Vousden in eighth place after one hand. The former made a single big blind jam facing Gierse who micro-stacked them. Gierse's king-jack dominated Jorstad's nine-eight and ended his run.
monzemann made a 60,000 min-raise as Stumpfed made a 46,860 jam from the small blind. Schemion folded out monzemann after squeezing all in. The latter turned over pocket queens that dominated Stumpfed's queen-nine and eliminated him in seventh place.
Hrabec left the tournament in sixth place after using king-jack to make a 15 big blinds open-shove. Lefrancois used pocket tens to make an instant call in the big blind and later turned a set that landed quads on the river.
Astdet used ace-jack to make a 70,000 min-raise and Lefrancois used ace-trey to make a big blind call before flopping two pair. The latter made a 58,000-wager check raise on the flop to 157,500 and the former called. Lefrancois landed a six on the turn getting a 247,500 lead as Astdet made a 780,058 prompting him to snap his opponent off.
Even so, the river backed sending Astedt packing in fifth place. Monzemann revealed an ace-queen before snap calling as Schemion flipped jack-ten of spades. But, an ace on the turn eliminated Schemion in the fourth position.
Gierse left the table in the third position after using pocket threes to make an all-in three-bet from the big blind and losing to the open raise that monzemann made after revealing King-queen. The latter had a 5,400,000:3,200,000 chip advantage over Lefrancois when their heads-up battle began. But Lefrancois won a coinflip which earned him the title and first-place prize while monzemann finished second with $160,667.
