Final Table Action

Once the bubble burst it took only 40 minutes for the field to thin down to the final 9. The action did not slow down as Arkadiy “Crocofantos” Tsinis was the first casualty in the first hand. Alongside go was Seth “Girthbrooks” Davies when he delivered his short stack with king-deuce of rubies right into Braglia’s pocket queens as well as was not able to improve. Once Davies broke, Individual “PhilLaak” Dunlap, Tanner “bamatide88” Bibat, and Jonathan “Art.Vandelay” Dokler were eliminated within a minute of each other in 7th, sixth, & 5th, respectfully.

Then “cammy3399” was busted out in 4th place when she got it all in with pocket nines against Braglia’s suited king-queen. There was a king on the flop and with no nines appearing on the turn or river, she was sent to the rail. Joon “jykpoker” Kim was beside to fall to Braglia as he got it in with ace-ten against Braglia’s superior ace-queen suited. The board did Kim no favors as it ran out queen high to give Braglia top pair and sent Kim away from his computer in third.

The heads up battle between Peter “pbraglia” Braglia and Patrick “Synesthesia” Eskandar was truly one for the books, with each player holding the lead at some time with a lot of chips going back and forth across the table. Ultimately, it was Patrick “Synesthesia” Eskandar who emerged victorious after getting it all in with ace-jack suited against Braglia’s king-four offsuit and ended up hitting a flush on the river to knock out Braglia in second for him to take home his first gold bracelet.
