With a $427,500 prize pool to aim at, it was Donnell "Spreezy52" Dais who earned the victory after a brisk six-hour day on the virtual felt.

After Anthony "heheh" Zinno ended up as the bubble boy, the in-the-money eliminations came at a lightning-quick pace. Some of those who nabbed some fast cash include Ashley "sakevonfang" Sleeth (87th - $1,112), Jamie "DanBilzerian" Kerstetter (82nd - $1,112), Phil "Lumestackin" Hellmuth (58th - $1,368), Ryan "joeyisamush" Depaulo (55th - $1,368), Scott "miamicane" Davies (36th - $2,052), Bryan "Pellepelle" Piccioli (24th - $2,480), and Jeff "NedrudRelyt" Madsen (20th - $2,480).
After Derin "dbg81490" Goodman bubbled the final table by losing a flip to John "sn1p3rjdubz" Duci, Joon "jykpoker" Kim became the first final table elimination after his pocket fours ran into Mike "SammyTwizz" Azzaro's pocket tens.
The very same level saw both Yonghui "pokermaster8" Jiang and Jeffrey "itilthard" Kim take their exit. Jiang lost a race to Azzaro holding a pair of jacks and Kim held an ace-jack offsuit that was dominated by the suited ace-king of Patrick "Brokerpat" Megna.
With another new level came two more eliminations as Dias eliminated both poker vlogger Andrew "grandpaed" Neeme and Simon "BagelBites" Lam in quick succession. With four players left, Megna would be the first to go after his pocket three's got cracked on the river by Duci holding a suited ace-eight.
Three-handed action saw chip stacks move around until Duci lost the majority of his stack to Dias and from that point, he eliminated Duci the very next hand in third place with Azzaro taking his exit in second for $55,703 shortly after.
