The Day's Action
They started dealing at 3:05 p.m. eastern time today, and it was a sprint from the start. By the time the 95 minutes of late registration was over, 818 entries crushed the $500K guarantee and put $818,000 in the kitty. A total of 103 players were set to share in those prizes, and there were just under 300 players still fighting for those prizes.
It only took an hour to play down to the money, with "jjj77777" as the unfortunate bubble player. They didn't slow down any once the money bubble burst, and about 90 minutes later they were down to the final table. Among the players to cash out in the money prior to the final table in this one were Harry "Iamapoopie" Lodge, Conor "1_conor_b_1" Beresford, Chris "ImDaNuts" Oliver, Niklas "Lena900" Astedt, and Espen "Hymn2Ninkasi" Jorstad.
The final table action proceeded just as quickly, with bustouts every few hands until they got down to three-handed play. It stalled a bit there, but ten minutes later "ruben0721" was out in third after losing a race. That set up a quick heads-up battle between Padilha and Ilya "thienlao21" Korobkin.
Korobkin almost didn't make it that far. He had a big stack early in the day, then lost a chunk to "oriente1" before the money bubble. Just before the bubble though, Korobkin was all in at risk, but coolered Marc "Rowniwn" Radgen with aces over eights, and around 40 minutes later, he was back in it with a better than 4 million chip stack.
Padilha went on a tear near the end of the day. He eliminated two players to get it ten handed, then knocked out three of the first four players off the final table. Korobkin eliminated two more, then Padilha got them heads up where it all ended in a massive cooler when Korobkin got jacks in but ran into aces and had to settle for second place.
The decisive hand was actually the second last hand of the night, and it was a cooler. Pedro "PaDiLhA SP" Padilha raised to 2M, and Ilya "thienlao21" Korobkin reraised to 6.25M. Padilha called then called again for 6.5025M on the flop. Korobkin shoved the turn, and Padilha called.
Pedro "PaDiLhA SP" Padilha:
Ilya "thienlao21" Korobkin:
The aces held, and Korobkin was left with barely 3BB. They went in on the next hand, and Padilha took it down. Korobkin earned more than $14K in bounties along with the prize money.
