Friday (15) was supposed to be a free day for the Main Event finalists, but the field was reduced from 15 to the final 9 players during the “extra” competition on Day 8. In less than six hours, the necessary eliminations were made, with American Adam Walton eventually taking the chip lead by a huge margin.
In fact, everything Walton did on Day 8 worked. The Seattle player managed to squeeze out the chips. When he hits, he puts in a lot of chips, and he bluffs a lot. In this way, he built a castle with 143 million chips. Second in chips is Steven Jones with 90,300,000.
The top three are all from the United States. Regular guest Daniel Weinman rounded out the top three with 81,700,000 points. All other players are from Europe: Jan-Peter Jachtmann (Germany – 74,600,000), Juan Maceiras (Spain – 68,000,000), Ruslan Prydryk (Ukraine – 50,700,000), Dean Hutchinson (Scotland – 41,700,000), Daniel Holzner (Italy – 31,900,000 ) and to than Lewis (England – 19,800,000).

Final table by knocking out Spain Player Jose Aguilera, who was already seated at a 10-handed table. He was the short stack when he got involved in a preflop all-in with AJ against Jachtmann’s A8. The 456 flop sets the stage for practice, while the 7 turn is brutal. To the delight of all the other players, the river did not result in a tie. Minutes after the fall, Aguilera was still stunned, sitting alone at an empty table in the tournament room.
