La table finale s'est étirée sur un peu moins de 8 heures et 161 mains. Il a fallu 39 heures de jeu effectif pour tenir le dernier rescapé d'un field de 7 761 joueurs. 1165 participants sont repartis avec des dollars, c'est le deuxième plus gros nombre de joueurs récompensés sur un tournoi WSOP, et 15 Français ont atteint l'argent. Le meilleur résultat est à mettre à l'actif de Luca Orsatelli, 29e pour 34,718$.

Mariz a lui débuté le head's up, qui s'est déroulé dans une ambiance festive, avec du retard sur son adversaire. Il a même trouvé un deux outers pour survivre et craqué les {a-}{a-} d'Alexander. Réduit à 13 blindes après ce coup du sort, Alexander s'incline quelques mains plus tard.

Mariz remporte un ultime 40-60 pour conclure avec une {q-Spades} rivière, une carte qui l'avait déjà sauvée lors du Jour 3, à 15 left. Le vainqueur a indiqué son intention de se faire tatouer cette carte dans un futur très proche.

Déjà runner-up du Tag Team à 1000$ la semaine dernière, avec David Guay, le Québécois remporte sa première victoire sur le circuit. "Nous venons chaque année, on grinde les petits tournois en espérant toucher le gros lot et finalement on l'a fait", a-t-il expliqué, ému.

Le Canadien, désormais en tête du classement de Joueur de l'Année WSOP, a promis de "rester jouer tout l'été, au moins jusqu'à la fin du Main Event".
