Final Table Action

The eight-handed final table got off to a hot start when Anthony "heheh" Zinno moved in with pocket kings but ran into the aces for Matt "berkey11_S4Y" Berkey. The board didn’t improve Zinno and he was eliminated in eighth place.

A few hands later, Michael "Bballlind10" Lind picked up king-jack on a jack-high board and moved all in. He was instantly called by Basile with pocket aces, and when the board ran out no extra help for Lind, he was sent to the rail in seventh place.

A short while later, Basile shoved with a bigger stack holding king-nine and was called by Austin "Shady_1" Roberts with pocket queens. The board ran out to give Basile a king-high flush and Roberts was eliminated in sixth place.

After losing a few big pots Berkey became short and moved all in with ace-nine but ran into the pocket queens for Truong. The board didn’t improve Berkey and he exited in fifth place.

Four-handed play only lasted a few minutes before Brian "BaulHardigan" Gates shoved in the small blind with ace-queen but ran into a monster when Basile snap-called with pocket aces. The board flopped a flush draw for Gates but when the turn and river bricked out, Gates was eliminated in fourth place.

Michael "BobMerwald" Bohmerwald was the next casualty when he flopped top pair with queen-jack but was up against a flush draw for Truong with king-nine of spades. When the turn hit the eight of spades it was the end of the road for Bohmerwald as he exited in third place.

Heads-up play started with Truong having an over 3-1 chip lead on Basile and it didn't take long for all the chips to hit the middle. Basile picked up ace-four and moved all in but was snap-called by Truong who held ace-jack. The flop fanned out a jack and the rest of the board was no help for Basile as he was forced to settle with runner-up position. Truong took down the final event of the series and won his first WSOP bracelet with the victory.
