Action from the Final Day Action
Ten players returned to the action on Day 3 with Weinman as chip leader closely followed by Colombian Eduardo Bernal Sanchez. The two short-stacks in Lautaro Guerra and Oliver Weis busted out within minutes of each other on different tables which allowed the final table to commence in earnest.
Ruslan Dykshteyn was the first player to be eliminated on the final table after Germandio Andoni cracked his aces by flopping a set of kings. Stephen Song hit the rail not long after Dykshteyn after losing to Weinman's pair of deuces.
Chino Rheem was the aggressor for most of the day and was the first player to break the 10,000,000 barrier. However, constant clashes with Andoni weakened Rheem's stack before eventually succumbing to Hendrikson in fifth place.
After the second break of the day, four players returned to the table and in the space of five hands Weinman knocked out Andoni, Sanchez, and runner-up Jamey Hendrickson, putting a quick end to the tournament.
Weinman outlasted 1,891 runners to win his first bracelet which he described as 15 years in the making. After discovering the victory has put him on top of the Player of the Year table, he is planning to play a lot more tournaments this summer, though not before celebrating with a round of golf.
