Final Day Action

Dan Zack
Dan Zack

Daniel Zack began Day 3 as the shortest stack, beginning the day with just 11 big blinds, and managed to triple up only a few minutes into the day when he made two pair. Despite this, he became the first casualty of the day, finishing in tenth place.

Andreas Zampas was eliminated in ninth after a significant cooler against Weisman left him short-stacked; his full house was outmatched by Weisman's straight flush, leading to his rapid elimination a few hands later.

Following Zampas, Leslie Roussell exited the tournament in 8th place after committing his remaining chips pre-flop with pocket queens, which failed to overcome Weisman's pocket kings.

Abdul Al-Magableh managed his short stack diligently for an extended period before committing with pocket aces. However, he was ultimately eliminated in seventh place when the aces were cracked by Weisman's Broadway.

Jhojan Rivera faced several setbacks on Day 2, but Day 3 initially appeared promising. Unfortunately, he found himself short-stacked once again and ultimately lost an all-in preflop against Rheem, to be eliminated in sixth place.

John Zable was short when he reached the final table and managed to ladder as others fell around him. Once Rivera was eliminated, he inherited the title of short stack, and he got his remaining stack in the middle with pocket kings, only to run into the aces of Zolotow, sending him home in fifth place.

Derkowski demonstrated his skill over three days, entering the final ten as the chip leader. However, he was reduced to just four big blinds when his aces were cracked by Zolotow's top set. Despite a brief resurgence with a double-up, he ultimately finished in fourth place, when he was eliminated by Weisman.

Three-Handed Battle

Once three-handed play commenced, an epic battle ensued, lasting over five hours before an elimination, with Weisman, Zolotow, and Rheem each holding the chip lead at various points. Zolotow appeared poised to dominate the tournament when he flopped the nut straight and put Rheem at risk for over 6,000,000 chips. However, Zolotow was ultimately eliminated in third place when his ten-high straight was bested by Weisman's jack-high straight.

When Rheem and Weisman finally had gotten heads-up, it didn't take long for all of the chips to go into the middle as Rheem flopped two pair against the flush draw of Weisman. Weisman was able to turn the flush and avoid the board pairing to eliminate Rheem and claim his second WSOP title.

Weisman was joined by friends and family on the rail as he claimed his victory, and says he's going to celebrate by being well rested and possibly taking a hike in the morning before continuing to grind the 2024 WSOP.
