After having faced this broad field and removed Matthew Burnitz at the final table, Ben Hamnett was the winner of this event. He got the first place and pocketed the first prize of $ 818,847. For the American, this is his first major title. This victory also allowed him to earn a place in the grand final of the WPT Season XI which will take place at Bellagio in Las Vegas in 2013.
