In what would be the last hand of the tournament, Patrik Antonius open-shipped and Phil Ivey snap-called.
The room came alive as everyone was on their feet as Antonius was at risk. However, nothing is easy and faint gasp could be heard when the flop came down, giving Antonius a pair of threes and the lead. Just when it seemed the tournament was bound to go on even longer, the spiked on the turn to give Ivey back the lead.
Antonius needed either a king or three on the river to stay alive, but it was not in the cards as the appeared. Antonius was eliminated in second place for $1.2 million, while Ivey captured the $2 million first-place prize, in the same day he finished 12th in the Main Event for $100,000.
