Arthur Conan a été le premier qualifié pour la finale alors qu'Adrian Mateos jouait pour une quatrième breloque WSOP. Le Team Pro Winamax s'est incliné en une grosse demi-heure.

Ponakovs a mis plus de temps à se débarrasser de Daniel Soltys et il a combattu durant deux heures avant de rendre les armes face au Français.

Le Letton a été devant quelques mains en finale mais Conan a rapidement pris le dessus. Avec 3/4 des jetons en sa possession, Conan s'est montré patient avant de finalement 3-bet shove {j-Spades}{9-Spades}. Ponakovs a payé pour ses 23 dernières blindes mais sa paire de {5-} n'a pas tenu!
