2020 WSOP Event #5 Final Table Results

1Allen "Acnyc718" Chang$161,286
2Philip "tomte" Yeh$99,709
3Felipe "McBain" Leme$69,772
4Andrew "iseefoodtuna" Campbell$49,570
5Tim "married" Begley$35,697

7John "Slapshot1085" Forlenza$19,390
8Josh "charliefrog" Greenberg$14,603
9Quintin "AA_QTiP_KK" Trammell$11,196

After Shawn "shades927" Stroke bubbled in 127th place, the in-the-money eliminations came at a steady pace. Among the notables to cash were Katie "katelin" Lindsay (113th - $1,622.60), Bo "proudpatriot" Cappello (91st - $1,703.73), Melisa "NJ_Melisa" Singh (75th - $$1,947.12), Event #2 champ Louis "PokeThese" Lynch (50th - $2,758.42), Stephen "sixsixsix" Jones (37th - $3,164.07), Aaron "FrankDux" Massey (13th - $6,896.05), Michael "itwasthator0" Gagliano (12th - $8,680.91), Ryan "Protential" Laplante (11th - $8,680.91), and Greg "ClickingBtnz" Himmelbrand (10th - $8,680.91).

Chang began the final table as the chip leader, while Quintin "AA_QTiP_KK" Trammell and Josh "charliefrog" Greenberg were the two short stacks. Not surprisingly, they were the first two to go before John "Slapshot1085" Forlenza followed them out the door in seventh place when his ace-queen failed to get lucky against Alex "ShadowFiend1" Condon's pocket queens.

Condon then bowed out in sixth place when his ace-king failed to win a flip against Chang's jacks, and not long after Tim "married" Begley jammed with deuces down only to run into the pocket kings of Chang.

The short-stacked Andrew "iseefoodtuna" Campbell then ran ace-deuce into Philip "tomte" Yeh's pocket aces to bust in fourth place, and then Chang dispatched Felipe "McBain" Leme in third place when the latter's king-nine suited fell to the former's ace-king.

Chang took a 3:1 chip lead into heads-up play, but Yeh put up a tough fight, even taking over the chip lead at one point. However, Chang was not to be denied as he reclaimed the lead and set about whittling down Yeh, who would jam with eight-six. Chang called with queen-jack and the paint cards prevailed to eliminate Yeh in second place for $99,708.77.

The next tournament on the schedule – Event #6: $600 PLO8 6-Handed – will take place at 3 p.m. PDT on Monday. The PokerNews Live Reporting Team will once again be reporting all the action, so be sure to tune in then to see who captures the next 2020 WSOP bracelet!
