How the Final Table Played
The table's action kicked off fast as two players got busted at once. Scholomace used pocket nines to make a 14 big blind open-shove and bringiton405 used ace-king to call off 13.3 big blinds. ivanmfilho used pocket queens to make a small blind call that covered bringiton405 and Scholomance.
The queens dominated, sending the duo packing in eighth and seventh place, respectively. cunsy15 was the stack leader when they reached the final table. They landed top pair on the river before calling OlaColaMosa's shove, which they made using trip sevens.
cunsy15 used an ace-eight to wager their remaining chips. Unfortunately, OlaColaMosa's jack-five dominated cunsy15 and ended their run in sixth place.
nuncanemvi followed cunsy15 in the fifth position after using king-jack to wager the remaining six big blinds. But, ivanmfilho's lowly eight-four defeated nuncanemvi's card and busted them.
WomenAreGood left the table in fourth place after ivanmfilho made a 2.3 big blinds open before calling their 19.5 big blind all-in shove using pocket aces. The former's aces lost to the latter's ace-nine hence exiting the tournament.
Three-handed action didn't last for long as OlaColaMosa used pocket fives to make a six-big blinds jam on the button that they lost to ivanmfilho's flip, which they made with ace-queen. The latter clashed with shashOs21 in a tough battle while having a 126.6:9.4 big blind lead.
shashOs21 used ace-king to double the first hand over ivanmfilho's ace-queen. But, their stack reduced. shashOs21 didn't give up as they faced ivanmfilho's pocket kings with ace-five.
The dealer dealt the tournament's final hand in the 41st level. shashOs21 kicked it off using king-eight of diamonds to make a min-raise and ivanmfilho used ace-eight offsuit to place a 7.1 big blinds three-bet before calling. The latter got a 4.8 big blinds lead after a four-six-king rainbow flop occurred.
Even so, shashOs21 called it prompting ivanmfilho to check, land an eight on the river and make a 19.8 big blinds all-in move. shashOs21 wagered 12 big blinds before using two pair to call. Their card dominated despite an offsuit seven completing the community cards and busted ivanmfilho in second place with $15,686.
