The final day brought Sam Trickett, David Kitai, Joe Commisso, Richard Lyndaker, Tom Lutz and Edward Ochana to the table. The first 2 players to be eliminated were David Kitai and Tom Lutz. While Sam Trickett won 4th place, Edward Ochana was placed 3rd.

The 2 remaining players were Lyndaker and Commisso alone competing heads up for the bracelet. The competition between them lasted 200 hands, with Commisso in the lead for most of the time. Both of them staged 12 all-ins but on the 13th all-in, Commisso won the hand and the bracelet .
