Final Day Action
The late registration period brought eight new faces to the tournament by the restart time on Day 2, bringing the total to start the day to 28. After just three levels of play, only 16 remained as the final two tables redrew and the bubble loomed. The next hour saw four more take an exit en route to hand-for-hand play. During the beginning of this time, Ian O'Hara secured a double with his aces over the kings of Carlos Guerrero but failed to land another double shortly after when he ran into the aces of Guerrero, holding ace-queen. O'Hara was sent out as the inevitable bubble boy.
Two bracelet winners took to a pot shortly after that resulted in one taking an exit. Howard Mash moved all in from the button with the dead man's hand and David Prociak hit the call button from the big blind with his ace-ten. Prociak's ten kicker ended up playing and Mash took an exit just shy of the unofficial final table of nine. Jason Shinbaum came into the final nine near the bottom and quickly saw all of his chips go into the middle with a flopped duck against the flush draw of Prociak. The turn completed the flush for Prociak and Shinbaum took an exit in ninth.
John Corsi was the next short stack to make a move when he shoved all in holding ace-ten and Sam Panzica called from the big blind with his queen-five of hearts. The flop came down with two paint cards, one of which was a queen, and Corsi failed to catch up as Panzica took down the pot, sending Corsi out the door in the eighth spot. The shortest stack to start the final table was Nicholas Visconti who managed to climb two more spots on the ladder before falling victim to Chad Eveslage, who held a pair of sailboats when Visconti moved all in with his pair of treys. Eveslage held on for the pot, sending Visconti to the payout desk in seventh.
Shortly after, Eveslage found himself all in against Trudeau and the two were flipping. Eveslage held a pair of sixes to the ace-queen of Trudeau and the board brought a flush for the latter, who took down the pot and sent Eveslage out in sixth place. Brett Bader was stacking up nicely during the final table until the first few eliminations took place, then suddenly he went cold and ground off most of his stack. When he did get it all in it was at the wrong time, running his snowmen into the kings of Trudeau. Bader failed to improve and Trudeau pulled in another pot, eliminating yet another opponent.
Panzica was the next player to take a walk over to the payout desk after he was eliminated by Trudeau. Panzica lost most of his stack with ace-six of clubs against the sevens of Prociak and elected to move all in during the next hand. Panzica held ace-jack, falling to the king-seven of Trudeau after he hit a cowboy on the turn. Three-handed play went on for almost two levels before a tournament changing cooler took place. Prociak limped the button, Guerrero raised it up and Prociak shoved. Guerrero snap-called with a pair of queens only to see the pocket aces of Prociak and the rest is history as Gurrero took an exit.
When the heads-up portion of play started, Trudeau found himself battling against a bracelet winner in Prociak, who was at a two-to-one chip deficit. Trudeau applied maximum amounts of pressure, only to see Prociak take the lead and return the favor. Trudeau dropped down to under a quarter of the chips in play before he found traction and made a comeback. The final hand saw Trudeau limp-shove with ace-six and was snap-called by Prociak who had ace-king. The flop gave Trudeau two pair and Prociak could not find any help to stay alive as he was eliminated in second for a respectable $28,655. Trudeau took down the first-place money along with a new WSOPC ring to add to his collection.
That wraps it up for the PokerNews live coverage of the $2,200 High Roller but check out the $1,700 Main Event tomorrow at 11 a.m. local time for Day 1b.
