Final Table Action

The official six-handed final table got off to an action-packed start. Alan "PhilIvey" Engel found himself all in preflop after losing with aces against kings the hand before and made trip aces but fell to the better kicker of Matthew "HuniDeGrande" Stone and was eliminated in sixth place.

The next to go in fifth was "kahlil98" when they were all in on a combo draw and couldn't improve against the two-pair for Bibat. A few more hands went by before "iheartco0kie" was all in with an over pair against two-pair for Bibat, sending them out in fourth place.

Stone was the next casualty when their flopped set was up against a straight for Bibat and eliminated them in third place.

Heads-up play started with Bibat having a 4-1 chip lead against Arkadiy "Crocofantos" Tsinis and all the chips went in fairly quickly. Tsinis had two-pair on the river against a full house for Bibat who put Tsinis all in. After some thought, Tsinis made the call and would have to settle for runner-up position as the full-house for Bibat scored the victory.
