Even after Shawn "100Grand" Berthiaume bubbled in 372nd place, it was a long slog to the final table. Among those to make deep runs but come up short were Dave "dunningjrugr" Alfa (99th - $1,282.68), Mike "The Mouth" Matusow (88th - $$1,374.30), Matt "Berkey11_S4Y" Berkey (75th - $1,465.92), Ryan "bitc0in" Riess (70th - $1,649.16), Donna "dd817" DiCrescento (43rd - $2,830.22), Alexander "amzzzz" Ziskin (23rd - $4,397.76), Taylor "AyeTayTay24" Laran (16th - $5,497.20), and William "Potrippper" Klevitz (11th - $8,887.14).

Kenneth "KBconcepts" Phillips began the final table as the chip leader with Vincent "meatball44" Ablahani and Michael "namhtiw1" Whitman hot on his heels. The other six players lagged behind, and it was no surprise to see a couple of them exit early.

Paul "Debt2Me" Gunness was the first to go after failing to get lucky with ace-four suited against the pocket jacks of Whitman, who then picked up Big Slick to bust Michael "vapor098" Federico and his ace-jack.

Despite the early success, Whitman wound up going next after losing a big flip with pocket nines to Huynh, who had ace-king and flopped Broadway. Hunter "Hunt_Dizzle" Frey then got his chips in on the turn with trip jack and had to fade the straight and flush draws of Huynh. Unfortunately for Frey, that was easier said than done as the rivered delivered his opponent a diamond flush.

Phillips busted in fifth place when his ace-ten failed to overcome the pocket sevens of Ablahani, and then Sang "youngkoi" Lee lost a flip with jacks against Huynh's ace-king suited to fall in fourth.

Matthew "610610" Berger proceeded to bust Ablahani in third place when the duo got it in on the turn with the former holding a set of sixes to the latter's top two pair, and that allowed Berger to take a nearly 2:1 chip lead into heads-up play against Huynh.

Despite starting at a disadvantage, Huynh fought his way into the chip lead and closed things out in a hand where both players had trip sixes, but Huynh's three kicker actually improved him to a winning straight.

The next tournament on the schedule – Event #20: $500 PLO 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!
