Action at the Final Table
Jeff Gross and Jonathan Little, who was a special guest, monitored action at the final table as it began on November 22 at 6:00 p.m. GMT. Little analyzed each player's move for 3.25 hours. Even so, they didn't wait for long as Juan Pardo Dominguez used pocket eights to put his chips in against Plesuv's pocket queens.
He landed an eight on the river and improved a full house. Benjamin Rolle used ace-ten to make a 355,360 open-shove in the 25,000/50,000/6,000a level. Still, three finalists folded, and Rodrigo Seiji Sirichuk used pocket queens to call in the small blind.
Even so, the ten held and sent Rolle packing in ninth place. Sirichuk didn't benefit a lot from Rolle's stack since he followed him when blinds were 35,000/70,000/8,500a after using ace-eight of clubs to make a late position min-raise.
Plesuv used six-deuce of spades to call in the big blind, and a seven-eight-four flop having two spades drove the action. The player checked, prompting Sirichuk to place a 168,000 bet. Plesuv made an all-in check-raise, and Sirichuk called off his last 1,237,197 chips.
Sirichuk drew dead after a queen of spades appeared on the turn. WOOLOOLOO had over 3.2 million chips when Justin Bonomo left the table in seventh place. The latter used ace-five to rip the remaining 7.5 big blinds from a small blind, while Barak Wisbrod used pocket kings to make a big blind snap call.
Bonomo paired a five but missed extra outs. Dominguez exited the tournament in sixth place and got its first six-figure payout.
WOOLOOLOO used pocket aces to make a 200,000 min-raise in the hole, and Dominguez used pocket sevens to make a 2,377,132 three-bet all-in from a small blind. The former flopped a set, turned a boat, and busted Dominguez.
Zombie Chow put in 11.5 big blinds from under the gun using king-jack, and WOOLOOLOO used pocket aces for another second straight hand to wake up and call.
His aces held, and Chow flopped a jack. This gave WOOLOOLOO a vital chip lead, and he eliminated Chow in fifth place.
Plesuv used ace-queen to make a 280,000 raise, and Kulev used ace-five of clubs to make it 1,302,000 hence remaining with 1,400,300 chips. The former set his opponent all-in who called later.
Kulev got in urgent need of running fives after a queen on the flop. A five appeared on the turn, and Kulev exited the tournament in fourth place.
Plesuv regained the stack lead and later lost it after WOOLOOLOO's ace-king beat his ace-jack, remaining with 7.5 big blinds.WOOLOOLOO's stack was further reduced to less than five big blinds after WOOLOOLOO's king-ten defeated his jack-nine. Plesuv drew thin after a king, and the turn made him draw dead.
WOOLOOLOO had a 9,879,537:8,020,463 chip lead over Wisbrod. The latter used nine-eight to jam his stack, and the former used queen-six of clubs to call. Wisbrod lacked the king-high board's help and finished as a runner-up with $285,278.
