The bustouts were quick after eachother, with Lebedev's ace-ten unable to suck out against Oliveira's ace-queen. Sean Getzwiller got his chips in as a slight favourite, but his couldn't win against Mandavia's . Oliveira busted in fifth, his queen-ten didn't get the desired help against Strelitz' .
Mandavia was the chipleader at the final four, and he managed to deliver all the remaining knockouts. First Macedo's was no good against the of the champion. Christian Nilles came in third when his queen-deuce couldn't win against the ace-six.
