$10k HORSE - Gordon Wins The Bracelet!
With the blinds getting increasingly meaty, it was likely the contest could come to an abrupt end at any moment and that proved the case - two quick eliminations sealing the victory.
Here's how it went down.
Katchalov Conquered (3rd)
The Limit Hold'em round saw the end of Katchalov. In a four-bet pot pre-flop versus Ian Gordon, Katchalov fired the rest of his chips in on an all diamond with pocket sevens, only to discover the harsh truth that Gordon had flopped the effective nuts with K♦ J♦.
No runner runner redemption and just like that, we were heads-up!
Katchalov received $248,831 for third but Richard Ashby and Ian Gordon were left battling for the bracelet.
Gordon Wins The $10k Horse!
With a sizeable chip lead, it was always likely that Ashby would have a hard time catching Gordon and that proved the case as the pair of them went to war pre-flop in the Limit Hold'em, both four-betting.
The flop fell ten high and Ashby was too invested with his ace-jack to escape his fate - Gordon holding pocket nines.
The last of Ashby's chips went in on the ten turn and when the river blanked, he was eliminated in second place, denied his second bracelet of the series, although $378,027 richer for his efforts.
Meanwhile, Ian Gordon was the champ!
He picks up $611,666 for the win and claims the much-coveted championship bracelet, following a hard-fought final table.
That was it! It's been a tough battle for the bracelet and an excellent tournament. We hope you've enjoyed the coverage from PokerListings.
