Figallo started his run at the final table by busting the first three players eliminated, including the Day 1 chip leader “Laddien” in eighth-place and a huge pot that gave him a sizeable chip lead and eliminated "977sanek977" in seventh-place in a clash of the top two stacks where his kings held against ace-king. He also knocked out “llv62” in fourth with ace-king versus ace-nine and had the majority of the chips when three-handed play began.
