First to leave was Christopher Shaw. Surprisingly, Meshcheriakov had to go next. He went all-in against Samuel Gerber pre-flop with {#}A {#}K, and although an Ace fell on the river, it wasn't enough against Gerber's {#}6 {#}6, which made a flush with the same card. 
 
Ryan Laplante finished 7th, David Nicholson took 6th place, and was followed by Joseph Marzicola and Dylan Hortin in fifth and fourth place. 
 
Max Steinberg - 4,160,000 
Samuel Gerber - 2,820,000
Matt Stout - 1,950,000
 
Gerber fell back considerably by the 29th blind level (10,000/40,000/80,000), but managed to double up three times on Matt Stout, the best-known player at the final table. Gerber won with Q-T vs. Q-7, A-7 vs. J-6 and 8-8 vs. A-K. With this, Stout found himself in serious trouble.
