51 players returned on Day 3 of the $1,000 NLHE tournament with Alex Cordero in the chiplead (822,000). By the time they played it down to the 9-handed final table, however, LAPT champion Dominik Nitsche had the biggest stack.

Bob Bright was railed first, then came John Juanda, who caused a bit of uneasiness by requesting the replay of the dealer’s actions when he though he received the same card back he just changed. Ashton Griffin, Benjamin Parker and George Danzer got then eliminated to leave Nick Schulman and Mike Wattel to play heads-up.

Nick Schulman: 2,630,000
Mike Wattel: 397,000


In the last hand of the only 10 minutes long heads-up, Schulman bet Wattel’s all-in, who called. They both changed only one.

Schulman:  9-8-6-3
Wattel: 6-4-3-2


Schulman drew a seven and Wattel got a king, giving the title to Schulman.
