Third Time Lucky as Santi Jiang Takes Down Event #5: $50,000 Short Deck for $756,000
After a mere 2.5 hours, Santi Jiang has taken down Event #5: $50,000 Short Deck for $756,000 by defeating Seth Davies heads-up.
The tournament attracted 20 players who reentered 22 times to get to a prize pool of $2,100.000. All six final table players made the money but Jiang was the one who walked away with the most.
He came into the final table third in the counts but saw Day 1 chip leader Ivan Leow fall before him in fifth place after Chris Brewer had busted. Paul Phua was eliminated in fourth place to then take his seat in the streamed cash game with Leon Tsoukernik, Tony G, Rob Yong, and Hing Yang Chow.
Timofey Kuznetsov was taken out after for Davies and Jiang to battle it out. For both of them, it was their third final table of the week but Jiang managed to clinch the win in the end.

While this is the first final table for Leow, fellow countryman Phua is here for the second time. But for Davies, Jiang, and Brewer, this will be their third shot at grabbing a title this week!
They have just under 24 minutes left in Level 13 which has an ante of 20,000 while the button pays a double ante of 40,000. The level duration will remain at 40 minutes each and play will continue until a new champion has been crowned.
The final table won't be streamed on PokerGO as the plan was to broadcast a $200/$400 cash game to take place at the same time with players like Tony G, Leon Tsoukernik, and Rob Yong. This cash game has been moved to 3 p.m. local time (for now).
The PokerNews live reporting team will be focusing on Event #6: $100,000 NLH but will occasionally update on the progress of the final table.
