For Fara, his bracelet dream seemed all but over after taking a big hit to his stack by losing ace-king versus Loeser’s ace-queen when a queen hit the flop, and the Czech was left with just one big blind. However, he still had a chip and a chair, and after escaping with pocket fours against pocket tens, as well as hitting with ten-six against pocket eights, Fara was right back in it. Those eights belonged to bracelet winner Anson Tsang, who was left with five bigs after that hand and shortly busted after.

Fara then sent Elyashar to the rail by winning fives against king-ten to complete the comeback. Three-handed, it was Loeser who took the lead after holding with queens in a big pot, possessing over 50% of the chips in play at one point. But with the rapidly escalating blinds, Loeser dropped back after losing several all ins and ultimately ended up in third after shoving queen-jack in Fara’s ace-deuce and not improving.

Heads-up, Fara started with a commanding lead of over 3:1 and ended it in five hands. In the final hand, Fara shoved with king-queen and Muratovic called with ten-eight. The board drew blanks for the Bosnian and Fara comeback his miracle comeback from one big blind to with the WSOP bracelet.
