Only nine of the 58 starters received a slice of the prize pool. Our very own Mikita Badzaikouski and Kristen Bicknell went deep, finishing in 17th and 14th respectively, but missed out on an in-the-money finish. At least they did not finish in tenth place and burst the money bubble like Ali Imsirovic.
Joao Vieira and Matthias Eibinger were the first two players to bust inside the money. Both superstars padded their bankrolls with $63,075.

An action-inducing flop had something for both players. Daniels checked, Peter fired a 120,000 bet into the 153,750 pot, Daniels raised all-in, and Peters called off the 428,323 chips he had behind. The turn nor the river came to Peters’ rescue and the tournament was now down to only four players.
Those four became three with the elimination of Daniels, who banked $130,438. Daniels opted to open-shove for 22.5 big blinds from the small blind with . Pascal Lefrancois looked Daniels up from the big blind with . Daniels’ deuces failed to melt Lefrancois’ snowmen when the board ran .

Kelopuro fired a second barrel, this one worth 438,000. Lefrancois responded with check-raise all-in for 1,725,356, which Kelopuro called. The river completed the board and confirmed Lefrancois’ demise. Vogelsang doubled through his Finnish opponent when he flopped a set of kings when Kelopuro paired his king. Vogelsang never looked back from that point.
