Andrew Rennhack may have believed he was going to take down the title in Event #26: $1,500 No Limit Hold'em — and just for the record, he was right — but first he had to get through a starting field of 1,594 that all had the same belief. Those players built a prizepool of $2,151,900 and only one would walk away with the $408,953 for first place and a gold bracelet.

Day 3 started with the final 12 players and it took almost 10 hours of play before the final hand was dealt.

Christopher Symesko was eliminated first and Will Failla went next in 11th place with Jonas Wexler falling in 10th.

Once the final table was established, seven of the nine gradually dropped from the field of competition until it was down to Andrew Rennhack and Michael Katz.

Katz held a 5:2 chip lead over Rennhack. Katz tried to take Rennhack out but his timing was bad when he opened for 200,000 and got raised by Rennhack to 500,000 — Katz moved all-in. Rennhack called and showed {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds} and Katz turned up {j-Clubs}{10-Clubs}. The board ran out {q-Spades}{a-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{6-Spades} and Rennhack doubled up.

Shortly after Katz was all-in with {k-Spades}{10-Spades} against Rennhack's {6-Clubs}{6-Hearts}. The board brought the {2-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{2-Spades}{q-Spades}{5-Hearts} and Andrew Rennhack claimed his first bracelet.

Congratulations Andrew!
