Final Table Action

With the structure being so fast-paced the final table started with a bang. Christopher "Pay_Son" Staats moved in with ace-four and ran into the ace-queen of Ryan "DDDDDDDDream" Andrada. The board ran out with no help to Staats and he was eliminated in ninth place.

A few hands later Alex "OrcinusOrca" Foxen was all in with ace-nine but was called by the pocket aces for Gagliano and sent to the rail in eighth place. Vimy "CoolOff0102" Ha got his ace-jack in ahead of the ace-nine for Gagliano but when the flop saw a nine it was the end of the road for Ha in seventh place.

Andrada picked up ace-five but was up against the pocket sixes for Gagliano and after the board didn't improve his hand Andrada was out in sixth place. Soon after Angel "ChromeKing" Lopez called the shove of Gagliano with ace-king and was up against ace-seven. The board ran out with a seven and Lopez was eliminated in fifth place.

Clayton "Nevarlucky" Maguire moved in with ace-eight but fell short to the pocket queens of Gagliano and was out in fourth place. Kenneth "ace710" Neri picked up a monster hand with pocket jacks but ran into the cooler when Riordan held aces. The board didn't improve Neri and he was eliminated in third place.

Heads-up play started with Gagliano having an almost 2-1 chip lead and with the blinds being so big all chips were in the middle quickly. Gagliano shoved with queen-jack and was snap-called by Riordan with pocket sevens. The flop fanned out a queen and the rest of the board was no help to Riordan as he exited in runner-up position. Gagliano took down the event and scored the prestigious gold bracelet.
