*reflects a heads-up deal

Gelich went into the final table as the chip leader and guaranteed at least $77,480 for his efforts. That min-cash improved when India’s “level29” busted at the hands of David Coleman. Coleman then ran his pocket sevens into Geilich’s aces to bust in eighth-place and increase Geilich’s lead.

Finnish superstar Sami Kelopuro three-bet all-in with ace-queen after “hashtag_fold” had opened the betting with what turned out to be pocket queens. hashtag_fold hastag_called and Kelopuro headed for the showers.

Geilich resumed the role of executioner when he dispatched reigning Super MILLION$ champion Arsenii Malinov in sixth-place.. Malinov got frisky with ace-ten offsuit when Geilich was going nowhere with his queens.

David Yan flopped the nut heart flush with ace-jack to send Daniel Dvoress, holding pocket eights, home in fifth before Yan himself crashed out in fourth at the hands of a resurgent Bert Stevens.

Heads-up was set when hashtag_fold ran out of steam in third-place. Their ace-three never troubled Geilich’s dominating ace-jack.

Stevens and Geilich chopped the remaining prize pool based on ICM, but Geilich wanted the win, even saying so in the chatbox. The heads-up duo moved all-in blind to determine the title, and it only took two hands.

The first saw Geilich’s queen-nine prevail against Stevens’ six-deuce. The final hand pitted Stevens’ ace-king against Geilich’s ten-five. Both players flopped a pair, but Geilich caught a ten on the river to become the tournament’s champion.
