Final Table Action
"Ooohwee213" came into the final table sixth in chips but soon stepped on the gas to establish dominance in the latter stages. Firstly "Ooohwee213" sent "Nibbles99" to the rail after cracking their pocket jacks by catching a full house.
The next opponent in the crosshair for "Ooohwee213" was Schulman who only had five big blinds going into the hand. Ooohwee213's pocket sevens held on despite Schulman flopping an up and down straight draw.
The mark was laid down by "Ooohwee213" who then knocked out Vuong "Luckyboy201" Do with pocket kings and Kevin "kingkung99" Kung with pocket queens in quick succession, which gave "Ooohwee213" 60% of chips going into a three-way battle with "dripseason1" and Smith.
Smith got the better of "dripseason1" by hitting top pair on the flop against "dripseason1"'s second pair, which paved the way for the cooler of the century where Smith's aces were cracked by a runner-runner straight.
