Final day recap

The final day opened with six out of the 22 returnees flying Asian flags including frontrunner “uvw999” from Hong Kong who eventually bowed out in 11th place. Japanese player Masakazu “Brian-Miyamoto” Miyamoto staged one of the strongest runs of the day, climbing from 18th rank to 7th place. Also in the lineup were Italy’s Giuseppe Dario Sammartino and Argentina’s Leandro Bianchini. Sammartino fell in 9th place to Dumitru Adrian “DDimancescu” Pora with Qh8h outdrawn by Js10d on a board 9hKh8dKs10s, and Bianchini missed the final table by one spot, eliminated in 8th place by Lucio “Wizard0fAz” Lima on a dominated ace.

Among the finalists were three Asian players. China’s Weilin “Ace predator” Wang was chip leader which he earned by railing two players. Japan’s Ken “ken@king” Okada and Miyamoto brought up the rear. Two WSOP decorated players were also in the round, series bracelet winner Lucio “Wizard0fAz” Lima (WSOP #9: $525 Superstack Turbo Bounty NLH champion) and ring winner David “Z0NEDin” Jackson. Canada’s Michael Watson was back for his second final table. 

Japan’s bracelet hunt quickly ended as both Miyamoto and Okada were the first two to go. Miyamoto doubled up off Lima then lost it all to Pora on a flush over flush. For Okada, he met his end on a blinds versus blinds situation. Watson shoved with 8s7s, bb Okada risked it with KcJh, the board ran 7h10dJd2s8c to improve Watson to two pair. Pora also denied Lima a second series gold. On a turn board 4sQd2h10s3c, bb Pora jammed 2s4c two pair, sb Lima check-called for all his chips with Qh9s top pair. The river was 3c

Down to four players, Watson doubled up off the leader Pora but couldn’t get past Wang’s luck to exit in 4th place. At the showdown, Watson was ahead with mid pair, Wang called with bottom pair that improved to trips on the turn. At three remaining, the quiet Jackson emerged from slumber, landing two sizable pots including a double up off Pora with 4s4h holding against AsQc overcards that missed. This awarded Jackson the lead which he held until Pora finished off Wang with a lucky Ad8c spiking the eight on a board 9c4d8h5h7s to burn AsQc

Despite the deficit, Jackson came out firing at heads up and within five minutes, he regained the chip lead on a big double up. All in at the flop of 6s9cJs, Jackson had 9d6c two pair, Pora with KsKh, the turn was 8h and river Ad. From there, Jackson went on to close it out. The final hand was Pora Ac8c, Jackson Kd3d, the board 7d7hQd7sKc for a rivered full house and the gold to Jackson. Despite falling second, Pora earned a personal WSOP high score of US$ 140,393. His largest payout on the GG Network was US$ 161,875 for his victory at the US$ 1,050 GGMasters High Rollers back in mid-April.
