Final Table Action

High Roller Final Table

Half of the final eight players were bracelet winners with both Jeremiah "freestylerr" Williams and David "dpeters17" Peters looking to become the first-ever two-time online bracelet winners.

With half of the final table already owing WSOP gold, there was a chance one of them would fall first, and Jim "BOCARATONE" Collopy was that person. Collopy jammed preflop with ace-ten and was called by Peters holding a dominating ace-jack. Williams started the final table third in chips but was next to go after he lost a race holding a pair of sixes to Brett "Metanemesis" Apter holding ace-queen.

The fall of the top stacks continued after Felix "madenspauwke" Vandeput saw his lead evaporate as the blinds went up and got in good with ace-nine against Lazrus holding a dominated ace-seven. Vandeput stayed ahead after the flop but Lazrus turned a seven, ending his tournament in sixth place.

Peters was next to go after his pocket rockets were tripped up Buzgon's ace-queen, and then Michael "DirtyMike973" Marone busted a few short hands later after getting it in with a made hand of sevens only to be called by Lazrus holding a crushing pair of eights.

A couple of hands later, Buzgon won a race with pocket eights against Apter holding a king-jack and Apter had to settle for third place and $87,246 in prize money.

The heads-up match was a battle of New Jersey players with Buzgon hold a slight chip advantage over Lazrus. The two battled back and forth until Buzgon called off his stack on the river holding a weak ace. Lazrus turned over top two-pair and Buzgon had to settle for a second-place finish for the second time this series.
