Final Table Results

1Luke Brabin$131,365
2Didier Guerin$81,220
3Daniel Murphy$59,334
4Stephen Lindeblad$43,986
5Ryan Hong$33,080

9David Profaca$12,189

Ten players started the day and Kahle Burns took that spot to the cashier, followed by David Profaca in ninth, then Piyush Gupta in eighth (courtesy of Brabin), then Didier Guerin sent Brian McAllister home in seventh place. It only took 20 hands to lose the first four, but the play slowed to a crawl after that.

Zane Ly busted in sixth place on the 49th hand of the day and just a hop-skip and 10 hands later Ryan Hong was out. Four-handed play lasted until Brabin took out his second opponent of the day-- Stephen Lindeblad went to the cashier in fourth place. Daniel Murphy was next, leaving in third place — another one to drop courtesy of Brabin.

Brabin was in complete control as he went on to take out Murphy and start heads-up play with Guerin. Brabin had a slight chip lead — 1.617 million to Guerin's 216,000.

Guerin won the first few pots but then lost the steam he would need to beat that kind of chip lead. The final hand showed down with Guerin holding the {9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} to Brabin's {K-Spades}{Q-Clubs} which held up to give Australian Luke Brabin his first gold bracelet, the cash, and his place in poker history.

Congratulations Luke!
