Action of the Day
Two of the notables to start the day were Daniel "SmilleThHero" Smiljkovic and Parker "tonkaaaa" Talbot, who both won WCOOP events in the previous week, and were eliminated in 19th and 18th place respectively, both having been eliminated when their pocket pair couldn’t hold against the overcards of their opponent.
“CBon’s 72” entered the day second in chips, which is also where they finished, while Figallo entered Day 2 in the middle of the pack as 13th in chips out of the 27 remaining players and went on a run that culminated in victory.
Figallo started his run at the final table by busting the first three players eliminated, including the Day 1 chip leader “Laddien” in eighth-place and a huge pot that gave him a sizeable chip lead and eliminated "977sanek977" in seventh-place in a clash of the top two stacks where his kings held against ace-king. He also knocked out “llv62” in fourth with ace-king versus ace-nine and had the majority of the chips when three-handed play began.
Heads-up play began after "CBon's 72" rivered a straight against third-place finisher ”razvyqq”. Soon after, "CBon's 72" took the chip lead when he held a better kicker in a hand where both players flopped a pair of aces. Chips stacks were close to even and a heads-up deal was agreed to, leaving $10,000 for the winner. Eventually Figallo took down the tournament and claimed the extra $10,000 by holding the better kicker in a hand where both players made trip eights on the turn and got the chips in on the river.
