Hand-for-hand play on the bubble was reached about seven hours in and lasted for a full level before the tournament lives of three players were claimed on the same hand. According to the tournament lobby, 'uvaseca' busted in 63rd place, presumably having the most chips between the three and scored the min-cash. While 'kingstayking' in 64th and 'ValueMerguez' in 65th received nothing.

Anthony 'heheh' Zinno also received a min-cash after busting in 61st place.

A huge cooler gave Kornuth a monster chip lead when he clashed with fellow big stack 'Hopelep'. The two got it in preflop aces versus kings and Kornuth spiked a king on the flop to drag a 3 million chip pot and 'Hopelep' was out in sixteenth place.

The final table was formed in under a level from there as a whirlwind of bustouts claimed the lives of Alan 'TheJews' Sternberg (15th), 'TDu2Death' (14th), 'swansong79' (13th), 'ForlorarDu' (12th), 'jwest411' (11th), and '2fly2die' (10th).

Goodman and Kornuth had piles more than their counterparts when the final table began and they easily knocked off their competition. Pete 'petechen' Chen was the first to go. Both he and Timothy 'poker.' Nuter flopped a pair of kings and the chips went in. Chen was dominated though and couldn't improve.

Kornuth knocked out Jonas 'LobyPewis' Macoff moments later, followed by Justin 'kingfortune' Liberto busting in seventh.

Goodman and Kornuth teamed up to take out Taylor 'ReadyGambo' Black in sixth. Both called the sub-ten big blind shove and Goodman made trips with king-queen to best king-jack.

Forced all in out of the big blind, Frank 'flcrivello' Crivello had to put himselve at risk with three-deuce and a pair of eights was enough for Nuter to score the knockout. Noah 'ThePunter' Bronstein had his deep run end in fourth.

The final three players played for over an hour before a crack was formed.

As Kornuth pulled away, Nuter's stack kept shrinking. Eventually, Kornuth shoved blind versus blind and Nuter called it off in the big blind with ace-four. Kornuth hit an eight with king-eight and faded a flush draw on the river to set up the heads-up battle with Goodman.

Kornuth held a more than five-to-one chip advantage as the battle kicked off and Goodman would not be able to gain anything back. The two played for about 15 minutes before the final hand was dealt. With a king-high, three club board completed, Goodman led out with a less than half pot bet. Kornuth shoved and after a few moments in the tank, Gooodman called with just a pair of tens. Kornuth had rivered a set of sixes and the final pot was dragged.

There is still plenty of action to come at the 2018 World Series of Poker. Stay tuned to the PokerNews blog as the PokerNews Live-Reporting Team will be on the floor providing live coverage of every event until the series wraps for another year.
