Final Table Action

Tom "4Logan" Dean started the final table as the short stack and he was the first to fall after his big slick was out-flopped by Chris "letsgetit888" Carey holding ace-jack.

Nick "DuckFlush" Pupillo came to the final table second in chips but lost two hands holding ace-queen to fall in eighth place.

Justin "Fatstax" Whitfield was the next player to fall when they jammed their stack into the middle after flopping an open-ended straight draw with ten-nine of diamonds and they were called by Torgersen who held king-ten of spades. Whitfield whiffed the turn and river ending their tournament in seventh place.

Brent "grebnrets" Roberts then bowed out in sixth place when his pocket eights failed to win a flip against Sam "texasmolly" Grizzle's ace-king.

Not long after, "letsgetit888" jammed his stack into the middle holding king-queen suited only to run into the ace-king of Torgersen. "letsgetit888" turned a queen only and it looked like they were going to double-up until Torgersen rivered broadway to send them home in fifth place.

Blair, who came to the final table as the chip leaders, found himself as the short-stack and he got his remaining chips in the middle after flopping an open-ended straight draw. Brandon "Omni27" Ienn called with trip sevens which held after Blair bricked the turn and river to end his night in fourth place.

Three-handed action saw the chips evenly dispersed until Sam "texasmolly" Grizzle three-bet jammed his remaining chips in the middle preflop after Torgersen had raised and was called.

Grizzle was racing holding queen-jack and took the lead after flopping a queen, but Torgersen spiked the river giving him a set of tens sending Grizzle out in third place.

Sam Grizzle
It's been a blast from the past on WSOP.com the past few days. Sam "texasmolly" Grizzle also made a deep run in the online events and finished 3rd for $77,725

Torgersen took a 2:1 chip lead into heads-up play and he chipped away at Ienn until the latter's remaining chips went into the middle holding ace-seven.

Unfortunately for Ienn, he was dominated as Torgersen held ace-eight and Ienn took his exit in second place for $106,508.
