It took one hour from the time Hunter Frey busted out in third place until a new champion was determined. Will Durkee started with the chip lead in heads-up play and never relinquished it, grinding down Todd Terry. In the end, Terry had to move in with A-Q with his short stack and Durkee called with an underwhelming J-4. But Durkee turned a straight to win the hand and the bracelet.
Todd Terry finishes in second place, earning $353,875.

Michael Banducci was the next to fall, when he flopped two pair and was up against Will Durkee's better two pair. Michael Banducci finishes in 5th place, earning $105,884.
Justin Bonomo ran into the "whaddya gonna do?" situation of pocket kings against pocket aces. When his kings failed to improve, he lost most of his stack to Will Durkee. On the next hand, ZeeJustin moved in and lost the rest of his chips. Justin Bonomo, the runaway chip leader going into this final, busts out in a disappointing fourth place, making $156,040.
Hunter Frey couldn't hold on much longer and finally moved in with eight-high. And you know how that ended. Hunter Frey is our third place finisher, cashing for a nice $231,273.

Shortly thereafter, Stan Weiss suffered the same fate when he ran into the Justin Bonomo wrecking ball. Stan Weiss is out in sixth place, taking home $78,020.
Justin Bonomo retains the chip lead going into five-handed play, and Todd Terry is the table's short stack.
