Final Table Action
It would take a mere ten minutes before Rezaei was eliminated by "Zar77262" when he shoved his ace-king into the queens of the latter. Half an hour later, Mulder was thrown out of the tournament when he shoved his eights into the ace-jack of Felipe. Another thirty minutes later, it was the other Dutchman, "K0SICE" who would leave the final table stage when he got his last ten big blinds in with ace-queen and was looked up by "Zar77262" who held pocket jacks.
"_m0ney2_89" busted next to Piekazewicz when he held ace-seven against the sixes of Piekazewicz. After a series of doubles back and forth across the final five, Drumond lost it all when he raised and then called the three-bet of Piekazewicz with queen-deuce. Piekazewicz held king-nine and stayed ahead throughout the board and even rivered a straight to seal the deal.
The chips kept going back and forth before Ladouceur was eliminated by Felipe. Ladouceur lost the blind versus blind battle with ace-deuce while Felipe held queen-four. The four on the turn sent the ex Team Online member out of the tournament in fourth place. Another half-hour later, "Zar77262" shoved with king-ten and was called by Piekazewicz with ace-six. The ace on the flop ensured that there was a Brazilian heads-up to come.
Heads-up play would take almost 100 minutes with the chips and chip lead going back and forth for a while, and the two agreed upon a deal along the way. Once Felipe was short, he called the shove of Piekazewicz with king-six. While he was ahead against the jack-eight of Piekazewiczk, the jack on the river signaled the end of the tournament. Felipe claimed almost $120,000 for his efforts over the past days while Piekazewicz closed this tournament with the win and $185,376.
