Many top players joined the field in hopes of a deep run to WSOP gold, but some who weren’t fortunate enough to find a cash included Vanessa "ContainsNuts" Kade, Michael "stiltwalk" Mercaldo, Jamie "DanBilzerian" Kerstetter, and Karapet "Siro74" Galstyan. As well as popular poker YouTubers Ethan "Rampunts" Yau, and Johnnie "JohnnieVIBES" Moreno, who finished just shy of the money.

The bubble burst in rare fashion as Jason "Daluxxx" Luxenberg was “sitting out” from the tournament and blinded down to less than an ante and forced all in. Once in the money, the action was fast and furious, with many players going out on the very next hand.

Some familiar faces who made the money include 2013 Main Event champ Ryan "BitC0in" Riess (156th - $1,788), Matt "RubberFist" Stout (138th - $1,877), WSOP.com grinders Michael "BrockLesnar" Holtz (96th - $2,146), Corey "Corgasm" Paggeot (57th - $2,503), and Jeremiah "freestylerr" Williams (56th - $2,503).

Final Table Action

The official eight-handed final table started slowly with many pots going back and forth preflop. The action began to pick up as the blinds increased, and the average stack was just around 20 big blinds.

The first casualty came when "ChloeB23" moved in with queen-eight on the button and was called by Saven, who held pocket fours. The flop fanned out a four, and the board couldn't find improvement for "ChloeB23" as they were sent to the rail in eighth place.

A few hands later, "maannyyy" picked up queen-jack suited and moved in but ran into the pocket queens for Saven to send them out in seventh place. "UselessTrvia" was atop the leaderboard for much of the later stages, however, after getting in a flip situation with king-queen against the sevens of Ilin, found themselves on the wrong side and was out in sixth place.

Soon after, Matakis would make a great call for their tournament life with ace-seven but was drawn out by the flush of "Brownballa" to eliminate the last WSOP bracelet winner in fifth place.

Four-handed didn't last long. Saven's chips hit the middle with pocket eights but were outdrawn by the rivered straight for Ilin to send them to the rail in fourth place.

A short while later, Ilin would be on the losing end of a coin flip when their pocket threes couldn't hold up against the ace-five suited in the hand of "Brownballa" to send them out in third place.

Heads-up play started with "Brownballa" having an over 2-to-1 chip lead on Wong, however, after a back-and-forth battle, Wong found himself in the pole position.

In the final hand, Wong opened the button for a min-raise, and "Brownballa" moved all in for just over 20 big blinds. Wong quickly made the call with ace-seven and was up against ten-nine suited. The flop saw an ace, and the rest of the board was no help to "Brownballa" as they were forced to settle for a runner-up finish. Wong scored the victory and WSOP gold.
