During the 4,000/8,000/1,000 level, berkenator got his chips all in with {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} against Adam "bustin busters" Acosta's {a-Spades}{5-Diamonds}. However, the board ran out {3-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{7-Clubs} and berkenator took $8,725 for eighth.

Adam "bustin busters" Acosta headed to the rail next. Alvaro "VARICO" Ballesteros opened to 20,003 in early position and Acosta re-raised all in for 235,105 from the big blind with {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}. Ballesteros called and tabled a dominating {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}. The board ran out {j-Clubs}{k-Spades}{5-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} and Acosta collected $11,432.50. Busting next was insanocut, at 5,000/10,000/1,000. Down to 76,164, insanocut went all in with {k-Spades}{4-Spades} and found action from Jeremiah "Believer8219" Vinsant, who held {3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}.

The 6,000/12,000/1,500 level was where domino20's tournament ended. Ballesteros opened to 29,999 in the cutoff and domino20 shoved for 214,629 out of the big blind, behind {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}. Ballesteros called and flipped over {9-Spades}{9-Hearts}. The community cards ran out {7-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{k-Hearts} as domino20 finished in fourth for $32,282.50. Ballesteros, though, would exit next. He got his chips in ahead with {a-Spades}{q-Hearts} against Jeremiah Vinsant's {a-Diamonds}{10-Spades}, but unfortunately for Ballesteros, the board ran out {6-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{8-Spades}{9-Hearts} and made a winning straight for Vinsant. Ballesteros won $41,880 for third.

At the start of heads-up play, Jeremiah Vinsant held a 2:1 chip lead on MASSH and Vinsant quickly wrapped up the win. The last hand saw a limped pot to a {2-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{6-Hearts} flop. A raising war ensued, and MASSH's tournament life was at stake with {8-Spades}{6-Diamonds} against Vinsant's {q-Hearts}{3-Hearts} for the flush and straight draws. The turn was the {k-Diamonds} and kept MASSH in the lead, but the {2-Hearts} landed on the river and made a flush for Vinsant. MASSH's runner-up effort was worth $55,840, while Jeremiah Vinsant pocketed $87,250 for the win.
