Josh Arieh was sent to the rail first by Mack Lee (low pot) and Zhukov (high pot). Mikael Thuritz, Jason Steinberg, Guillaume Rivet and Mack Lee followed suit and, finally on Day 3, Richard ‘Chufty’ Ashby was eliminated at Level 28 (50,000/100,000) by Billirakis. 3-handed play resumed on Thursday, led by Lind with 2,860,000 in chips.

It did not take long for Billirakis to be railed at Level 29 (60,000/120,000) by Zhukov’s triple kings, but the heads-up then took over two hours. Eventually, Lind bet then called Zhukov’s all-in on the {#}4 {#}K {#}Q flop.

10th and 9th finishers were Steve Watts and Matthew Henson, then it was Rampone who shoved and ran into Chen’s {#}Q {#}Q with {#}J {#}J on a neutral board. After the elimination of Justin Sternberg, Richard Trigg and Corey Hastings a well-balanced 4-handed play commenced. After Diaz doubling up on Chen at Level 25 (5,000/15,000/30,000), the latter shoved his remaining 345,000 with {#}K {#}5 . Diaz called once again with {#}J {#}T and had his pair of jacks on the turn, sending Chen home.

Diaz was left with Anders Meli heads-up after he eliminated Andrea Dato as well. At the end of the 20 minutes long session, he called Meli’s all-in:

Meli: {#}4 {#}4
Diaz: {#}A {#}T

Board: {#}3 {#}T {#}5 {#}7 {#}3

A pair of tens brought Diaz his first WSOP title ever, in addition to the golden bracelet.
