Final Table Action

As is expected in a fast-structured tournament with a low number of entrants, it didn't take long to reach the final table. In fact, the average number of big blinds going into the final table was just over 20, with "Upay4mySushi" holding the largest stack at a mere 54 big blinds.

Action began rather slow at the final table, with players seemingly tightening up in hopes of making it into the money. However, a double KO by "thebikeman12" would set the action in motion having burst the money bubble.

The rest of the tournament would last for a mere three levels as short-stacked players found themselves frequently all-in preflop due to escalating blinds.

Once "Gamestop2012" eliminated "KCspencey" in 4th place after slowplaying kings, the remaining three players were quick to make an ICM deal, with 1st place getting the lions share of the prize pool.

Interestingly, "Gamestop2012" would make slightly more than "thebikeman12" despite being knocked out in 3rd place as a result of the ICM chop.

Once heads up, "Upay4mySushi" quickly took down the tournament after turning a set of fours against the top pair of "thebikeman12". Congratulations to "Upay4mySushi", who collected $27,262.39 for their efforts today.
