From middle position, Malta22 shoved for 21,591 with {8-Diamonds}{8-Spades}, but ran into bearsfan775's {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades}. The board rolled out {7-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{10-Spades}{8-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} to make bearsfan775's straight and Malta22 was out in ninth place for $6,125. In the following hand, bdybldngpkr opened to 9,500 from early position and trainwrecks shoved for 60,279 from the button, holding {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}. A snap-call from bdybldngpkr revealed {k-Diamonds}{k-Hearts} and when the board came {4-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{9-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{2-Clubs}, trainwrecks was sent home in eighth place for $8,750. Bruno "Bruno GT" Gonzalez Terra was felted shortly thereafter when his {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} failed to hold against judgedredd13's {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}. The board came {7-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{4-Spades} and Gonzalez Terra was headed to the cashier in seventh for $12,250.

Jason Gray was the next casualty at this level, when he shoved from the button for 67,212 with {5-Hearts}{5-Clubs} and got action from judgedredd13 in the small blind, who showed {k-Diamonds}{q-Spades}. A queen on the flop put judgedredd13 ahead and Gray would not recover, finishing in sixth place for $15,750. Jonathan "MONSTER_DONG" Karamalikis was knocked out next by chip leader judgedredd13. Under the gun, judgedredd13 opened to 12,000 and Karamalikis called on the button. The flop came {a-Spades}{7-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} and judgedredd13 led out for 12,000, which Karamalikis raised to 32,000. Judgedredd13 responded by making it 76,000 and Karamalikis called. The {4-Clubs} fell on the turn and judgedredd13 shoved with the big stack. Karamalikis called all in for 107,198, but saw his {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts} trailing judgredredd13's {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}. The river came the {9-Clubs} and Jonathan "MONSTER_DONG" Karamalikis was out in fifth place for $20,650. The sixth and final casualty of the level was nordeste. Bearsfan775 raised to 12,000 on the button and nordeste shoved from the small blind for 87,338 with {k-Clubs}{j-Clubs}. Bearsfan775 called with {6-Spades}{6-Clubs} and despite flopping a set, the hand was still up for grabs as the flop came {a-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}. The turn and river came blanks for nordeste in the form of the {7-Diamonds} and {5-Diamonds}. Fourth place paid nordeste $29,750.

At 3,000/6,000/600 bdybldngpkr finished in third place. From the small blind judgedredd13 made it 18,000 to play and bdybldngpkr raised all in for 101,265. A quick call from judgredredd13 revealed {a-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} to bdybldngpkr's {k-Hearts}{10-Clubs}. The board ran out {j-Spades}{2-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{9-Spades}{8-Spades} and bdybldngpkr was sent off with $39,550. These were the chip counts to start heads-up play:

Eliminated first from the final table was Patrick "PMJackson21" Jackson at te 4,000/8,000/1,000 level. Jose "papadelpoker" de la Guardia limped from the cutoff and Jackson checked in the big blind, leading to a {3-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{3-Spades} flop. Jackson shoved for roughly 33,000 and de la Guardia quickly called with {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}. Jackson held {a-Hearts}{8-Clubs} and was drawing nearly dead. The turn and river didn't help Jackson, who finished in ninth for $6,400. Later in the level, Oddveig made a stand with {k-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} but ran into domino20's {k-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}. The case king fell on the flop and Oddveig was done in eighth place for $8,000. Those chips were short-lived for domino20, however, who was the next one out at 5,000/10,000/1,000. Under the gun, domino20 shoved for 112,947 with {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs} and Tulsa Tony called from the big blind with a dominating {a-Spades}{q-Spades}.

The board rolled out {2-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{8-Hearts} and Eduts was out in sixth place for $16,000. Big_Cat5847 was sent to the rail shortly thereafter. From the cutoff, Big_Cat5847 shoved for 144,442 with {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades} and it was off to the races when Jose de la Guardia called from the big blind with {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts}. An ace on the flop put de la Guardia ahead for good and Big_Cat5847 collected $22,400 for fifth. Doug "dgang" Ganger finished in fourth place when his shove from the cutoff for 125,398 with {k-Hearts}{q-Clubs} was called by MFen1152 in the small blind with {a-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}. The board ran out {6-Clubs}{10-Spades}{4-Clubs}{6-Spades}{10-Diamonds} and Ganger exited in fourth place for $29,600.

The final two eliminations occurred at 12,000/24,000/3,000.
