Final table payouts
1st Uri “JimyT” Reichenstein – Israel – US$ 166,859.75
2nd Patrick “chrisbenoit” Brooks – England – US$ 120,642.18
3rd Matas “NoWeyyy” Cikinas – Lithuania – US$ 87,226.63

6th Jeffrey “jumping gn” Reardon – Canada – US$ 32,968.62
7th Markku “ExVang” Koplimaa – Estonia – US$ 23,836.90
The fourth ring event attracted 1,571 for a richer US$ 1,193,960 prize pool. Among the long list of pros bumping the rail early, Niklas Astedt just missed the money by 12 spots and Andras Nemeth bubbled. On the profitable side, notables cashing in were Joseph Cheong (187th), Artur Martirosian (185th), Rainer Kempe (130th), Ryan Riess (66th), Kevin Martin (32nd), Gab Yong “genbengLee” Kim (31st), and Fabrizio “S@ulG00dm@n” D’Agostino (19th).
Down to two tables was when it all changed for Uri “JimyT” Reichenstein. At 14 remaining, he eliminated Muhammad “foldnutsjam1” Siddiqui with two pair over top pair on a board to move from 6th up to 3rd rank. After two players fell, JimyT delivered a double knockout, sending Jordan “PiePie” Cristos (10th) and TheBigSlice (9th) tumbling when his found a queen on the turn (hand pictured below). From there, JimyT kept a very tight grip on his lead. He eliminated Alexander “Resolute77” Kuzmin in 8th place to form the final table. Also making it through was Claas Segebrecht who was on his second ring event final table this series.
To give readers an idea of how large JimyT’s lead was, at the start of the final table he had 128 big blinds, his closest challenger, Markku “ExVang” Koplimaa had 37 big blinds. It took less than an hour to finish the job. The first called shove saw ExVang drop below 10 big blinds after paying Patrick “chrisbenoit” Brooks a double up; ExVang was then eliminated by JimyT with set on the river over two pair. A few minutes after, Jeffrey “jumping gn” Reardon was all in with AKo which missed the board to fall to JimyT’s pocket Queens.
This gave JimyT nearly 70 percent of the chips in play which he shoved at nearly every hand resulting in three double ups paid. Despite the loss in chips, JimyT was still way ahead. He went on to rail Justin “LappyPoker” Lapka (5th) then denied Segebrecht (4th) a second career WSOPC ring. Up 51 bb to Matas “NoWeyyy” Cikinas’s 8 bb and Brooks’s 5 bb, the axe quickly arrived. First to Cikinas, then to Brooks in just one heads-up hand.
