The Last Day's Action
Some of the tournament's participants who cashed but failed to reach the final table included Andrew "GudLife" Moreno, Krista "Pollux" Gillford, Pete "PeteChen" Chen, and Michael "BrockLesnar" Holtz. The final table was set after a while and its action kicked off with many all-in moves.
Gennaro Proscia was the first finalist to leave the table after their pocket sixes lost to David "Stoic1234" Uvavdov's tens and he failed to improve. So, he finished eighth with $16,292.
The remaining players battled it out for a while before Stavila used ace-six to wager his remaining chips in a clash with bustokid's ace-queen. Unfortunately, he didn't get help from the board and left the table in seventh place.
Karp used ace-ten suited to go in while bustokid used ace-queen to wake up. But the former's run ended in sixth place.
bustokid dropped his position to the bottom of the chip standings after a few hands. He used king-jack to move all in and Uvavdov used ace-three to call. Yet, an ace landed on the board and eliminated bustokid in the fifth position.
Calenzo maintained the stack lead most of the day. He used ace-three to go all-in on the button before West used pocket jacks to call him. The odds turned against Calenzo when the board failed to improve and sent him packing in fourth place.
Uvavdov followed Calenzo in third place after a few minutes. His ace-queen suited lost to Eriquezzo's pocket nines. Uvavdov's exit set up heads-up action between Eriquezzo and West, who had a small chip lead.
Even so, Eriquezzo used seven-high to make a big bluff and got the stack lead. He later used sixes to open the button and West used king-nine to go all-in.
Eriquezzo put West in a tricky position. The board ran out for sixes and West finished second with $90,023.
