WSOPC Ring Event #18: The Closer $500GTD (Turbo) Final Table Results
|8||"lovemestinky"||Isle of Man||$15,737|
At the final table, eliminations happened steadily every few minutes to create a conclusion in under an hour of play. Most of the critical hands at the final table were preflop all ins that resulted in a shift of chips, depending on who got the best of the board run outs. “AndyAtTheBike” entered the final table as chip leader but was sent out in fourth place, following some lost coin flips. In third place was “YallaHabibi” who bowed out to create the heads up matchup.
“Pokerguy21” of Canada had the 57/43 chip lead at the start of heads up play over “Goblue”. But after a few hands “Goblue” took the lead and was able to finish it off in five minutes as they rode pocket kings to victory on the final hand.
