The first to be eliminated from the final table was Event #9 winner Luie Sojo at 80,000/160,000/20,000. From the cutoff, Luie Sojo shoved for 1,684,543 with {a-Spades}{8-Spades} and got action from clubflush5 in the big blind with {5-Spades}{5-Clubs}. The flop came an exciting {a-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{8-Hearts} and Luie Sojo's top two pair was drawing slim against clubflush5's set. The turn and river came {q-Hearts} and {2-Hearts} as Luie Sojo departed with $34,365.50. At 100,000/200,000/25,000, supermanpunch exited. Adam "csimmsux" Geyer opened to 465,770 in early position and KA1SERfknS0ZE re-raised all in for 5,396,289 from middle position. In the big blind supermanpunch called all in for 2,458,577, and Geyer folded. It was {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs} for supermanpunch against KA1SERfknS0ZE's {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}. The board rolled out {q-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{3-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} as KA1SERfknS0ZE spiked the two-outer to eliminate supermanpunch in eighth place for $46,261.25.

23bigd23 was the next one out, at 120,000/240,000/30,000. On the button, 23bigd23 went all in for 794,322, and he was called by both dump22 and PartyPimp in the blinds. The flop came {k-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{7-Clubs} and PartyPimp isolated the action, showing {6-Clubs}{2-Clubs} for the flopped flush; 23bigd23 tabled {6-Diamonds}{6-Spades} and needed help. It did not happen as the turn and river came {9-Clubs} and {a-Diamonds}. For the seventh-place finish, 23bigd23 won $60,800.50. Shortly thereafter, dump22 busted as well. In middle position dump22 raised to 720,000, and KA1SERfknS0ZE re-raised all in from the small blind with the bigger stack. The big blind folded and dump22 called all in for 2,294,025 with {a-Clubs}{j-Spades}. KA1SERfknS0ZE tabled {6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}. The flop came {2-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} and kept KA1SERfknS0ZE in the lead. The {6-Clubs} hit the turn and clinched the hand. The {a-Spades} river card was too little too late for dump22, who finished in sixth place for $77,983.25. A few hands later, CHOOK2120 shoved for 2,068,324 with {k-Hearts}{9-Hearts} and received action from clubflush5, who held {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}. The board rolled out {4-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{j-Hearts} to make clubflush5's straight, and CHOOK2120 took fifth for $140,418.25.

A critical hand later in the level put Adam "csimmsux" Geyer in the lead. PartyPimp raised to 580,000 on the button and Geyer re-raised all in from the small blind for 6,006,674 with {a-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}. PartyPimp called instantly with {q-Hearts}{q-Spades}, but the board ran out {8-Clubs}{k-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and Geyer doubled up to over 12 million. He went on to eliminate clubflush5 in fourth place at 140,000/280,000/35,000. On the button, clubflush5 raised to 715,000, and Geyer called from the big blind to bring a {2-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{8-Spades} flop. Geyer checked and clubflush5 bet 1,200,000, but Geyer raised all in with the big stack. Clubflush5 called all in for 3,406,082 with {10-Hearts}{2-Clubs}, but trailed Geyer's {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}. The turn and river came {j-Clubs}{8-Hearts} as clubflush5 hit the rail in fourth place for $138,783.75.

Adam "csimmsux" Geyer - 19,779,641

KA1SERfknS0ZE - 12,840,781

PartyPimp - 7,032,078

PartyPimp's chips soon made their way into Adam Geyer's stack. From the small blind PartyPimp shoved for 5,467,078 with {4-Clubs}{4-Spades} and Geyer called with Ad8c from the big blind. The board came {6-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{2-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{3-Spades} and PartyPimp took $177,643.20 for third. With a 2:1 chip lead to start heads-up play, Geyer soon looked to close out the match. He raised to 620,000 and KA1SERfknS0ZE popped it to 2,210,000. Geyer took a little time before shoving with {k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}, but KA1SERfknS0ZE snap-called and tabled {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}. The flop came {2-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} and gave Geyer a few extra outs. The {k-Hearts} turn card kept KA1SERfknS0ZE in the lead and the river fell a safe {6-Hearts} as KA1SERfknS0ZE doubled through to the lead.

Geyer regained the lead, though, and went on to win. With blinds at 170,000/340,000/40,000, Geyer opened to 880,000 and KA1SERfknS0ZE called. The flop came {4-Clubs}{7-Spades}{9-Clubs} and KA1SERfknS0ZE checked to Geyer, who bet 1,140,000. KA1SERfknS0ZE re-raised to 3,400,000 and Geyer requested time before shoving with the big stack. KA1SERfknS0ZE typed in a big "ahhhhhhhhhhhhh" as he called all in for 14,221,562 with {8-Spades}{6-Spades} for an open-ended straight draw. Adam "csimmsux" Geyer tabled {k-Spades}{9-Diamonds} for top pair and the lead. The turn was the {k-Diamonds} and Geyer was one card away from victory. The {9-Hearts} river secured it, giving Geyer a full house and the win. KA1SERfknS0ZE collected $276,245.75 for the runner-up showing.
