Notable finishers outside the final table included Alex "AJKHoosier1" Kamberis in 10th place ($4,788), Randers in 17th ($2,873) and PeachyMer in 23rd place ($2,107) The chip counts to start the final table were as follows:

Demonfrost - 105,521

DragonDrake - 92,339

olivsen - 59,956

Sploder - 42,928

Greg "DuckU" Hobson - 30,641

Eliminated first was Sploder at 1,400/2,800/350. From the button, Sploder moved all in for 36,278 with {a-Hearts}{5-Hearts} and was called by DragonDrake in the small blind with {4-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}. When the board ran out {2-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{7-Clubs}, Sploder was out in ninth for $7,660. Shortly into the 1,700/3,400/400 round of play, olivsen had bad timing with {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}, running into jman5j23's {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}. The board came {3-Spades}{k-Spades}{j-Spades}{5-Clubs}{6-Spades} and olivsen was busted in eighth place for $9,575. Out next was Greg "DuckgU" Hobson at 2,000/40,000/500. He got it all in with {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} against Jonathan "driverseati" Tamayo's {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs}. The board came {a-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{6-Spades}{6-Clubs}{q-Hearts} and Hobson was out in seventh for $12,447.50.

The 2,500/5,000/600 level's lone casualty was DragonDrake, after he shoved from the button for 53,767 with {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs} and found action from Demonfrost holding {q-Spades}{8-Clubs}. A queen came on the flop and it was enough to send DragonDrake home in sixth for $19,150. The next elimination occurred at 5,000/10,000/1,000. Canofcorn22 opened to 22,000 under the gun and jampiriki shoved from the button for 132,287 with {k-Spades}{j-Diamonds}, but ran into canofcorn22's {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts}. The board came {6-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{7-Spades} and it was all over for jampiriki, who finished fifth for $26,810.

Canofcorn22 was low on chips after losing a critical coin flip to jman5j23 and was eliminated the next hand. Jonathan Tamayo's {j-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} topped canofcorn22's {a-Spades}{5-Spades} when the board rolled out {6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{q-Hearts}-3. Fourth place paid canofcorn22 $35,427.50. At 8,000/16,000/2,000, Jonathan "driverseati" Tomayo gave way in third place. He was all in with {j-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} for 290,316 after reraising jman5j23, who eventually called with {6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}. Tomayo found no help as the board came {5-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}, and was out in third for $45,960.

Heads-up play lasted for a while, but at 12,000/24,000/3,000 jman5j23 notched the victory. Demonfrost moved all in for 273,560 with {k-Clubs}{j-Spades} and jman5j23 called with {3-Spades}{3-Diamonds}. The board came {3-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{k-Spades}{a-Hearts} and it was over. Demonfrost finished as the runner-up for $61,280, as Jman5j23 emerged victorious for the $95,750 payday.

Among the best finishes falling short of the final table were TiltHappens in 12th place ($5,600), Jonathan "driverseati" Tamayo in 14th ($4,800) and Adam "Roothlus" Levy in 17th ($4,000).

At 1,000/2,000/200, backmanslivs busted. From the cutoff, backmanslivs shoved for 31,576 with {4-Hearts}{4-Spades} and was called by Scott "dorinvandy" Dorin in the small blind with {a-Clubs}{10-Spades}. A ten came on the flop and it was enough to send backmanslivs home in ninth for $7,000. In the following level, 1,250/2,500/250, nateypgate was sent to the rail. Nateypgate raised to 6,800 from the cutoff and Dorin called on the button. The flop came {7-Spades}{9-Hearts}{4-Spades} and nateypgate led out for 9,200. Dorin shoved all in with the bigger stack holding {a-Spades}{q-Spades} and nateypgate called all in with {j-Spades}{9-Spades}, which was ahead. However the turn and river came {a-Hearts} and {q-Diamonds} , and nateypgate was out in eighth place for $10,000.

It took quite a while for the next player to fall, but on the last hand of 2,000/4,000/400 both Justin "WPThero" Rollo and Scott "dorinvandy" Dorin were felted. Faraz "The-Toilet 0" Jaka opened to 12,000 and Scott Dorin moved all in for 138,366. On the button, Justin Rollo then reraised all in for 146,631 total. Jaka insta-called, tabling {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}, having Dorin's {j-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} and Rollo's {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} on the ropes. The board ran out {6-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{6-Clubs} and Jaka won the huge hand. Dorin finished in seventh for $14,000 and Rollo in sixth for $18,000. At 3,000/6,000/600, 0120 was on the short stack and moved all in from the small blind for 61,549 with {10-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}, and was called by Michnak in the big blind with {k-Clubs}{10-Clubs}. The board came {j-Hearts}{j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} and 0120's tourney was over in fifth place for $23,000.

Greg "DuckU" Hobson's impressive recent run does not appear to be ending anytime soon. After a victory in the FTOPS X series and a final table one night earlier in the Fill Tilt $1,000, he finished fourth here. His final chips were in the middle when he held {a-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} against Faraz Jaka's {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}. The board came {5-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{q-Spades}{2-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} to end Hobson's run. Hobson earned $33,600 for his effort. ADZ124 worked his short stack all the way up to third place. The blinds and antes were 5,000/10,000/1,000 when he exited; in the small blind, chip-leader Faraz Jaka shoved and ADZ124 called all-in for 60,528 with {j-Clubs}{4-Clubs} and had Jaka's {4-Spades}{2-Spades} dominated. The board ran out {q-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{9-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{a-Spades} as Jaka hit his deuce, sending ADZ124 to the rail in third for $44,000.

The chip counts at the start of heads-up play were these:

Faraz "The-Toilet 0" Jaka - 690,270

Michnak - 461,730

The match came to an end at 7,500/15,000/1,500. Jaka had built up a nearly 10-to-1 chip lead and moved all in from the button with {a-Spades}{9-Clubs}. Michnak called with {a-Hearts}{2-Hearts} and when the board came {6-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{k-Hearts} it was all over. Michnak finished in second place for $59,000 as Faraz "The-Toilet 0" Jaka took down the Super Tuesday for a prize of $78,000.
