After a break of several days, the final tablists of the AU$100K Challenge finally convened to play the event out to it's conclusion. There were a total of 41 entries for the event, of which 11 were re entries, allowing the prize pool to swell to just over $4 million. Ben Tollerene carried the chip lead into the final table, with Fedor Holz starting as the shortest stack. Things didn't improve for Holz, and he busted in 6th at the final table. Sam Greenwood fell in 5th, and Connor Drinan took 4th.

The final 3 players were Jason Mercier with 473,000 alongside Ben Tollerene with 1,268,000 and Fabien Quoss with 2,360,000. It didn't take long for Pokerstars pro, Mercier, to follow Drinan to the rail, and he picked up $602,700 for his finish. Tollerene and Quoss went back and forth heads up for a while after, but Quoss always seemed favourite, eventually taking the title, and AU$1,446,480. It's the second-largest score of Quoss' career behind his win in the 2014 PCA $100,000 Super High Roller. Tollerene took 2nd, and AU$924,140.
