The final table was all fireworks when it started and Jordan Saccucci was part of most of it. He found himself on the losing end of a few hands before finally getting all in for his last 9.5 million. Deeb shoved over the top and Saccucci could not connect with the board as Deeb took him out with his ace high.

Richard Berenbaum started to slip down to below average stack and decided to shove his pocket nines. It was unlucky for him that he ran into Benger's set of jacks and Ryan Godman's flush in the same hand. This was in the span of three eliminations in just over one round of blinds. Next was Deeb who pushed all in pre with his kings and got them cracked by Perceval's jacks for a massive pot at the time.

Chi Tsang had a final table full of ups and downs. He grinded what was a short stack into a healthy sized amount of chips to push around. Tsang was getting low After missing a few draws and would get all in with tens against Godson's ace-queen. Godson took Tsang out after flopping a queen and then he started to turn it up. Godson was on the verge of a chip-lead pot when he got it all in with ace-king against Benger's sixes but could not connect, being eliminated by a six in the window.

Perceval lost his tournament life to Shao with king-high losing to ace-high, but it was a couple of hands prior that took almost all of Perceval's chips when he got his kings cracked by Shao's jacks. Dylan Thibault found himself in the middle of Shao's final table heater when he ran his king-queen into the title winner's aces.

Shao and Benger played some low-ball poker heads-up for over an hour before the two finally got all the chips in the middle. Benger was getting short after an hour and decided to move his ace-seven all in from the button, but Shao woke up with ace-jack. Shao flopped his jack and Benger could never catch up.
