Ohhaaahhh took a commanding chip lead after an all-in with WSODice. Dice had pocket queens and Ohhaaahhh was at the table with pocket kings. The board came 9d-10h-9h-9s-10s and it was see ya later WSODice.

Ziggy47 takes control

Ziggy47 started to show his presence on the tables as he started to eliminate some players. Ziggy took out YrrsiNN as Ziggy’s Ac-Ks beat out YrrsiNN’s As-Qh.

The next victim for Ziggy was Okidokiclub. Ziggy raised preflop with Qh-10h and Okidokiclub moved all in with As-5h. The board came c-6d-Kc-2h-9d and Oki was out of the tournament in 5th place.

Heads Up Play

After a few more eliminations by Ziggy47 and Puntnko, the final heads-up match was set. Ziggy47 vs. Puntnko. Prior to the deal, both players agreed to about a $150,000 to $150,000 split with a remaining $30K left to play for. Here was the final hand.

Scenario: Ziggy raised, Puntnko re-reaised, Ziggy went all-in, and Puntnko called.

Ziggy47: Ac-Js

Puntnko: Ad-9h

Board: 8c-Ah-2d-7c-5h

With that hand, Ziggy47 took home the win and $182,438 in prize money. Not too bad for a Sunday’s night work. Puntnko still pocketed $151,283.
