Eventually, "Victoria92" and "carloc22" busted the tournament. Later mentioned finished as bubble boy after losing with ace-queen against Jacobson's pocket kings.

Prebben "prebzzz" Stokkan was one of them, but he hit the rail in seventh place ($9,338).

Martin "MJacobson888" Jacobson was down to twelve big blinds, and he shoved with pocket sevens. Jason "jadedjason" James made the call with pocket tens and held, eliminating Jacobson in sixth place for $11,413. After that, "CashedGiro" was eliminated in fifth place for $15,563.

It took a while, but then "KellerA" was down to just nine big blinds and shoved with ace-six. Sergio "zcedrick" Aido made the call with ace-jack and won the hand to eliminate him in fourth place for $20,750. Three-handed lasted for some time before "zcedrick" busted with ace-six against the pocket queens of Dietrich "2pacnrw16" Fast.

In the first hand of the heads-up, Fast moved all in with the bigger stack. James made the call with ace-ten and lost against queen-nine when a nine hit the flop. James had to settle for second place ($46,688) while Dietrich "2pacnrw16" Fast won the High Roller for $72,625.
