Day 3 Completed
Frank Vizza, who had led most of Day 1 and part of Day 2, couldn't get anything going and went out in ninth. Tim "Tmay420" West, the short stack coming in, only played two hands of note, and on the second he, too, was sent to the rail. WSOP newcomer Michael "TheBigSiCkO" Guzzardi had the misfortune of sitting in between Ted Forrest and Flack. He hung on, surviving multiple all ins, before going out in 7th.
Kyle Kloeckner was impressive throughout the event, but a couple of tough hands sent him out. He was followed by a short-stacked Ted Forrest. Dario Alioto, briefly the chip leader tonight, followed Forrest in fourth.
Jacobo Fernandez went out in third, securing his spot at the top of the current WSOP Player of Year points race. Flack had a huge 6-to-1 chip advantage over Daniel Makowsky when heads up began, and within a half-dozen hands it was over.
Flack had rebought at least 20 times during the frenzied rebuy period on Day 1, perhaps the most of any entrant. That $30,000-plus was obviously well-spent, though, as Flack takes home a cool $577,725 for his efforts tonight.
One could sense a mixture of elation and relief on Flack's face when it was over. "It's been five years," he said, alluding to the gap since his fifth WSOP bracelet. "I want to savor it a little bit."
Congratulations to Flack and all of those who made the final table. And thanks to all for following the coverage!
