Next out was Daniel “Utradonk420” Pricola who ran his ace-eight into the pocket kings of “yumyummm“ to finish in 7th place for $17,502. “omahabrian” then scored his third knockout, this time around he finished off Louie “xILoUieIx” Torres in 6th place for $23,176.

Matthew “WhiteMJ” Hewitt followed “yumyummm” to the rail in 4th place for $47,878, leaving just three players at the table, with Loeser being the shortest stack. The German pro survived that round as it was “tzinhoo“ who busted in 3rd place for $57,142 to set the heads-up play.
The one-on-one battle between Loeser and “omahabrian” didn’t last long as after a few hands, the German poker pro made his victory official, while his opponent settled for second place and collected $78,641.
