It was a single-day event lasting for about 15 hours and attracting 2,227 entrants who sat down throughout the day that saw several big guns leaving empty handed including Ralph Massey, Tiffany Michelle, WSOP Main Event champions Joe Cada and Koray Aldemir. Albert Rogers became the unfortunate bubble boy when his aces failed to beat the queen-ten offsuit of Greg Gabriel.
Post the bubble, many players cashed, including Bertrand Grospellier (311st for $1,061), Humberto Brenes (203rd for $1,326), soccer Star Neymar (49th for $3,959), Athanasios Polychronopoulos (27th for $5,696), and Ryan Depaulo (22nd for $,6,941). The final table bubble was Josh Arieh (11th place for $13,357) whose jack-ten could not hold against Wing Yam’s nine-five suited and Jake Gudmundsen (10th for $13,357) fell at the same time when his ace-queen failed to beat Steve Frakes’ pocket kings.
The final table began with short-stacked Wen Ni moving all in for his tournament life with a pair of eights and losing to Wing Yam’s ace-ten offsuit. He was followed by Louise Francoeur (8th) and Ed Chang (7th) falling on the same hand. Both players moved all in against the raise of Stovall, who called both of them. Stovall held ace-eight against the king-queen of Francoeur and the king-jack of Chang.
After scoring the double knockout, Stovall sent Rafael Lebron packing in 6th place. His next victim was Larry Carillo who was set for a double up when he got his pocket kings in against Stovall’s king-ten suited. A flush on the flop left Carillo drawing dead, and his good run came to an end in 5th place.
The next elimination was scored by Steve Frakes who busted Wing Yam in 4th place. The next to fall was none other than Frakes whose Ah 6h failed to beat Qc 3c of Stovall on the Ks 6s Qh Jc Kc board.
The heads-up play was a short affair as Timothy Heng shoved his last 22 big blinds against Stovall’s raise with ace-five offsuit, which Stovall called with pocket sevens. The board ran out 6c 4s 3d 8c 3s, giving the title to Stovall. Heng had to settle in second place for the runner-up payout of $118,213.
