In the final hand of the night, Pollock and his opponent Jason "TheBigGift" Gooch got all the chips in the middle pre-flop and 'loofa' flopped the nut flush, almost leaving 'TheBigGift' drawing dead.

Phil Galfond was eliminated in fifth place crushing his dream of his fourth WSOP bracelet. Galfond, founder of Run it Once, had laid pretty low for the first few hours of the tournament but when he got to the final four tables, he had a dominating chip lead and was relentless with the three-betting and continuation betting.
Galfond led several times at the final table and at one point looked sure to at least make heads-up, but was unlucky to run into Gooch's flopped full house with only five players remaining, giving up his chip lead for the first time since twelve players left. Galfond eventually got it in with a rivered flush, but Jared 'Jebronlames1' Bleznick, one-time a regular foe of Galfond online, finished him off in fifth place with a flopped full house sixes full of nines.
It was to be Josh "loofa" Pollock who would win the event and the latest online WSOP bracelet. Stay tuned to PokerNews as we cover every event at the 2019 World Series of Poker.
