The competition would be tough but in the end it would be Shawn Busse who would emerge the first place winner.
When final table play began the chip leader would be Adam White. It would be long before White would be short in chips as he was involved in a few big pots. White would then go all in when he was short in chips against Owen Crowe. White showed K-J while Crowe showed 9-5. The flop fell 7-6-2 with 4 on the turn and a 9 on the river. Crowe would get a pair and the win which would put White out in ninth place.

Ilya Andreev would go all in next and Busse would call. Andreev held Q-J and Busse would have pocket aces. The board would fall 7-6-5-Q-8 which would knock Andreev out in sixth place. Fifth would go to Wenlong Jin after he went all in against Pekka Ikonen. Jin held 8-6 and Ikonen held 9-7. The flop would show A-A-J which didn’t do anything for either player and with a 5 and 9 as the final two cards Ikonen’s pair would win the pot and send Jin out in fifth place.
Fourth place would go to Chuan Shi while third would go to Pekka Ikonen. This would leave Owen Crowe and Shawn Busse to compete in heads up play. The two players had worked hard at the final table as they eliminated all the players except one from the final table. When heads up play began Crowe held a 2-1 chip lead.
Even though Crowe held the chip lead, Busse would work hard to even out the chip counts and eventually gain the lead. In the end Busse would be the chip leader and eventually both players would be all in. on the final hand Crowe held 5-3 suited hearts while Busse held A-4 off suit. The flop showed 7-7-3 which gave Crowe two pairs but two sixes on the turn gave Busse the hand as he had the ace kicker.
