When the players were six-handed, Prociak started to dominate by eliminating Kalro in 6th place for $24,148. Not long after Livingston busted Russo in 5th for $33,263, but couldn’t get his chips to work, he was eliminated himself a few hands later by Prociak.

Prociak and Shack-Harris started the heads-up play with almost even stacks, but after half an hour of play Prociak had Shack-Harris all-in for his tournament life. Prociak’s was enough against Shack-Harris’ , who had to settle for second place for $96,750. The $156,546 and the golden bracelet were for David Prociak, winning his first bracelet and his biggest WSOP-cash by far.
