Final Table Action
The official eight-handed final table had an average stack of just under 20 big blinds, but with the big pay jumps, the action started off slow.

The board didn’t improve Drucker and he was sent to the exit in eighth place.
A few hands later, Muse got it in ahead with ace-nine against the king-queen for "Jautiena", but when the river fell a queen, it was the end of the road for Muse as they were eliminated in seventh place.
"AbleBaker" was next to go when they got their last few blinds in with ace-five against the eight-deuce for Clavell, who hit a pair of twos to send "AbleBaker" out in sixth place.
Moreno came into the final table as one of the biggest stacks, but after some unfortunate hands, found himself on a short stack. Moreno was in the blinds with only a couple big blinds left and called off with six-five against the eight-six for "Jautiena."

Four-handed went on for some time before Clavell moved in with ace-four from the small blind and was snap-called by "Suki_The_Sav" in the big blind with pocket sevens. The board ran out with no ace, and Clavell was eliminated in fourth place.
