The final table started with several eliminations coming quickly once play resumed after the dinner break.
Here are the final table payouts:
Beau Wilshire was the first to be eliminated with ten remaining. He got in the first hand after the dinner break. He got all in with ace-nine against Jeff Tebben's pocket fives. Wilshire could not catch up.
Shortly after, James Herderhorst got all in on the flop with trips and was drawing thin against Seale's flopped full house.
Terry Garnder fell in eighth place when he got his stack in with the best of it against the eventual winner, Phan. Gardner had pocket queens against the pocket jacks of Phan. Phan called the all in with a gut-shot and an overpair on the turn and rivered a jack to send Gardner home.
Seale was the recipient of aggressive play from Ron Cain, who defended his big blind against Seale with pocket sevens. Seale had aces and the two got all in preflop after Seale four-bet.
Mike Fouts hit the rail almost immediately after, losing to Jon Stanfield. Fouts had queens against Stanfield's aces. Stanfield flopped a set to put himself even further ahead and Fouts was out in sixth place.
Tebben was the fifth-place finisher losing to Phan in a blind versus blind spot where Phan had pocket jacks. Tebben had two overs, but failed to connect with the board and was sent home.
Phan knocked out Stanfield when he won a big flip, holding eights against Stanfield's ace-king. Phan then knocked out Nick Burris in third with ace-king against Burris's ace-jack.
The heads up match lasted for a while, but after a deal and a couple levels, Phan finally closed out the win and defeated Seale.
