A total of 622 players entered the tournament, which was played out on Monday, September 12th. The prize pool was worth a total of $186,000 and 72 places were paid. Each player received a starting chip stack of $2,500. The tournament began at 3 p.m. (EST) and finished at 2:37 a.m. (EST).

As final table play progressed, Lenny was knocked out in ninth place, followed by Smukke, Umass43, Schwah, ziggy47, and MickBt23. The game turned slow as SUPERTYR and Kenjh began heads-up play for the first place prize and tournament bracelet; Lee Jones (the floor person) agreed to override the rules and granted the players' repeated requests to chop the remaining prize pool down the middle. The two opponents then played a couple of capped-betting hands in order to determine an event winner.
