Jonathan Little, Vasile Buboi, Connor Drinen, Ryan DAngelo, Leo Markholt and Erick Lindgren were the last survivors of this poker tournament, while in the beginning, the Event#32 gathered a field of 516 players, which generated a prizepool of $ 2,425,200. The event planned 54 paid places and the first eliminated of the ITM pocketed $ 9,240. Among the notable players who were eliminated in the money without reaching the final table, we can quote among others Matt Glantz, Eric Froehlich, Brock Parker, Justin Smith, Matthew Waxman, Max Steinberg, Dan Smith, Allen Bari or Andrew Robl, who was the bubble boy of the tournament, by being eliminated at one place of the final table.

Vasile Buboi was the next of the list, followed some hands after by Connor Drinen. Eliminated at the 5th and 4th place, the two players left the final table with a respective gain of $ 106,830 and $157,274, in spite of their ability to play poker well. The elimination of Jonathan Little (3rd, $ 238,833) allowed Leo Markholt and Erick Lindgren to meet in the heads-up. Already chipleader at the start of the final table, Lindgren ousted his opponent at the end of 70 hands. Erick Lindgren pocketed $ 606,317 and his first bracelet, while Leo Markholt consoled himself with all the same a six-digit price ($ 374,960).
