Russia's Danii "AllinFanLOL" Maksimchuk also finished on the podium and took home the third-place prize of $42,750.

The final table began around nine hours into the event after Pawel "Panpies23" Madynski (10th - $3,430) didn't get there with jack-four against the ace-deuce held by "Fox News".
"Lovejuoo" took the first two players out. A short-stacked "FreshHotdog" (ninth - $7,602) lost a flip with ace-queen suited against the sixes held by "Lovejuoo".
A short while later, "Lovejuoo" won a massive pot with nine-seven suited for a flush after they called a river jam by "Anybody11" (eighth - $10,138) with queen-jack for top pair.
"huanli8", who entered the final table with the shortest stack, chipped up a bit before eliminating "w00ls" in seventh place for $13,519 when their jacks were good against sixes.
"SO LILLO" (sixth - $18,027) was also a victim of "huanli8" when their jacks didn't hold against king-eight. Not too much later, "Fox News" was on the rail in fifth place for $24,040 when their ace-five was no good against the ace-jack held by "lovejuoo".
