WCC #10: Malibu Big Game

It took just under 9 hours to finish WCC #10: Malibu Big Game, and Patrick Brooks from the United Kingdom took home the top prize of $152,529. There were a total of 126 entries in the game, putting $646,500 into the prize pool. That was well over the $500,000 guarantee.

The final two players briefly talked about a deal head's up, but couldn't find agreement and chose to play it out. Christian Rudolph made a valiant comeback, doubling up a few times and getting as high as 40 million chips after starting two-handed play with about 16 million. It wasn't to be however as he finally ran ace-five into ace-jack and couldn't get there, sending the pot and first place money to Brooks.
