Il n'a fallu que deux heures pour que les 6 finalistes ne soient plus que deux. Sur la 6e main de la finale, Yen ‘Pete’ Chen a tout mis avec {10-}{10-} pour s'empaler dans les {j-}{j-} de Tianyuan Tang. Malgré un {10-} au flop, un {j-} rivière à mis fin au parcours du Joueur asiatique de l'année 2014.

Joueur allemand installé au Royaume-Uni, Aymon Hata a lui foncé dans les {k-}{k-} de Smith. Hata a tout mis avec {q-}{j-} pour trouver deux paires au flop. Le chipleader du Jour 4 s'incline au turn quand Smith trouve deux paires supérieures.

Qualifié pour 10$ sur un Spin & Go, le Canadien Avraham Oziel encaisse 100 000$ après avoir terminé 4e sur un badbeat. Le joueur de Montréal rend les armes avec {a-}{a-} contre {7-}{7-} chez Tang...

C'est ensuite au tour de l'Australien Daniel Laidlaw de s'incliner face à Smith avec {a-}{10-} contre {k-}{5-} pour environ 222 000$.

L'ultime duo a alors quitté la table durant presque une heure pour discuter d'un arrangement financier. Les deux hommes ont partagé l'argent et décidé de laisser 300 000 dollars de Hong Kong et le trophée à la gagne.

Les deux hommes vont user et abuser du limp au bouton préflop et la grosse blinde va check à de nombreuses reprises. Les deux adversaires vont s'échanger la tête du tournoi de nombreuses fois après avoir commencer l'ultime duel avec moins de 500 000 jetons d'écart...

Après plus de 11 heures d'affrontement; Smith limpe a nouveau au bouton avec {a-}{k-} et Tang met tout avec {6-}{6-}. Le Chinois trouve un brelan au flop mais Smith frappe une couleur avec un pique turn et un dernier pique rivière !

Chris Moneymaker, Celina Lin, Aditya Agarwal, Randy 'nanonoko' Lew, Davidi Kitai et Bertrand 'Elky' Grospellier n'ont pas fait l'argent de ce tournoi qui a rassemblé 536 participants.

Les Français Fabrice Soulier (9e - HK$386,000 soit environ 50 000$) et Thibaut Blondel (12e pour environ 28 000$) se sont inclinés en demi-finale. Dong Guo (10e - HK$291,300), Winfred Yu (13e - HK$221,000), David Peters (37e - HK$101,000) et Sofia Lovgren (44e - $101,000) ont fait l'argent tout comme 4 autres tricolores (Michel Abécassis, Bernard Vu, Maxime Adam et Ivan Deyra).

Rendez-vous à Monte Carlo du 25 avril au 5 mai sur PokerNews pour suivre la prochaine étape du PokerStars Championship...

Elliot Smith limped in and was faced by an all-in jam by Tianyuan Tang. Smith though for just a few seconds before slamming down a stack, making a call to win the championship.

Smith: {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}
Tang: {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}

As the crowd gathered, the dealer patted the table and swept out a {6-Spades}{9-Spades}{7-Hearts} flop. Tang's crowd erupted as the local player hit a set of sixes, almost guaranteed a double up for the chip lead. Almost.

Smith needed running spades to eliminate his opponent. The dealer patted the table again and laid down a {2-Spades} on the turn. A collective gasp echoed around the table. As more spectators gathered, the dealer tapped the table one more time and dropped the {3-Spades} on the river, giving Smith a flush and the PokerStars Championship Macau Main Event Title.
