Fourty-five players made it back to day 2, but not everyone made it to the final table. Jonah Silverstein (12th - $2,863 + $5,777), Franco "pelaguacha" Spitale (13th - $2551 + $1,798), and Aliaksei Boika (33rd - $1,607 + $656) were among the notable busts throughout a day that saw a lot of action as bounties grew.
The bubble of the final table pitted the suited queen-ten of "mars917" against the pocket sevens of Xu. The pocket pair survived a straight draw on the turn to eliminate "mars917" in 10th for $2,863 and $4,744 in bounties, leaving the final nine to compete for the bracelet.
Final Table Action
The pace picked up immediately for the final nine as Vicente Delgado, Arkadiy "Kamsky" Tsinis, and Martina "Dopierdole" Ciklaminiova were all eliminated within minutes of one another in the first 30 minutes of final table action. Delgado’s bluff ran into pocket aces against eventual second-place finisher Kochubey. Tsinis lost a coin flip to third-place finisher Moti "rtm6789" Ohayon and Kochubey made quick work of Ciklaminiova’s pocket tens with pocket queens of his own.
Takahiko "tanyaodora3" Nishiyama finished in sixth place after outlasting the first three final table eliminations to shove the shortest stack with ten-eight, only to lose when Pyzara called with ten-six and found a six on the flop. Takao "shimizu9" Shimizu took fifth after coming up short on a flush draw against the pocket kings of Kochubey. Baoyang “baoyang666” Xu came into Day 2 as the chip leader and continued the run to an impressive fourth-place finish, losing with ace-four to the pocket sevens of Kochubey.
Action slowed down for the final three as Ohayon hung around with a short stack, managing to double up before eventually falling with ace-eight against the ace-king of Pyzara. Ohayon claimed $26,386 for third place and collected $5,801 in bounties.
Pyzara Battles Back
Kochubey came into the final table as the chip leader and held onto it until heads-up, where Pyzara doubled up to take the lead with a pair of eights against the missed inside straight draw from Kochubey’s jack-seven. Pyzara applied pressure right away to cross the 100 million chip mark before Kochubey caught pocket kings twice to fight back before the final break.
When the final two players returned from break it was all Pyzara, who crossed the 100 million mark again with two pair on queen-ten against the jack-eight of Kochubey. Kochubey was able to double once more when he turned a pair of queens to beat the pocket jacks of Pyzara. Eventually, it was the pocket sixes for Pyzara that outlasted the ace-queen of Kochubey to earn him his first gold bracelet.
