Hand-for-hand play on the bubble began in the twenty-first level of the day, around 11 p.m. local time. Play was halted two away from the money and just a few hands in, two players were eliminated on the same hand. 'Feeltheflow' busted in 181st place, the official bubble, and 'Poker5050' finished in 182nd place.

Within moments, over 60 players were claimed by the post-bubble bust-out bonanza. The only confirmed notable in the field, Shawn 'fortnite' Deeb, who was multi-tabling the $10,000 PLO 8/Better at the Rio, and was once a top-ten stack in the online event. He saw his run come to an end in 95th place banking $2,640.

The final table was reached a little over 12 hours into play with the elimination of Bradley 'pokergrandpa' Snider by Maio. Snider shoved ace-four preflop but found himself dominated by the ace-queen of Maio and no help came.

The pot gave Maio the chip lead into the final table with a significant advantage over the rest of the finalists.

Two brutal rivers sent the next two players to the rail. Firstly, Aditya 'pokerpop76' Sushant got it in with pocket kings against James '5.56cal.' Robinson's pocket sevens. A seven on the river crushed those hopes and a couple hands later Aurelian 'Winamax' Guiglini was all in against Tosoc having him dominated with ten-nine to ten-eight. After both flopped their bottom pair, an eight peeled off on the river and the field was down to seven.

The shortest stack at the table, Russell 'AntonChigurh' Powers, was the seventh-place finisher. Powers was down to just four big blinds when he shoved from the button with queen-eight clubs. Maio put him at risk and made trips with king-six.

Markus 'thegreatrise' Gonsalves thought he flopped the world when he shoved ace-four into Robinson's ace-seven and found a four. It was short lived as a seven followed directly behind it on the turn.

The very next hand, Justin 'lappypoker' Lapka shoved with pocket jacks and was eliminated when Tosoc called with an ace and flopped top pair.

Robinson's run would end soon after. A three-bet shove from the small blind was snapped off by Tosoc and king-six was unable to beat ace-queen.

Tosoc would make the event heads-up just moments after taking out Joel 'AjaWilson22' Feldman with king-ten flopping top pair to beat pocket sevens.

That pot gave Tosoc a slight chip lead to start heads-up play. Maio was able to grab the lead for a moment but Tosoc quickly got it back and began to pull away. A huge double up for Maio turned the tide once again.

From there, with the stacks becoming increasingly shallow, the two players traded double ups back-and-forth exchanging the lead multiple times. Finally, Tosoc got the double up he needed to retake the lead and soon after the final hand was dealt.

Maio open-shoved for just over ten big blinds with ace-nine and ran into Tosoc's ace-jack. A clean board for Tosoc gave him all the chips and the bracelet was his.

There is still more online action to come as Event #63: $3,200 ONLINE No-Limit Hold'em High Roller is on the agenda for Saturday afternoon. Stay tuned to the blog as PokerNews will be providing live coverage of the online High Roller event until the last card comes off the deck and a new WSOP champion is crowned.
