The deep stacks led to some rather slow play to start the final table, the first elimination coming five levels into the day. The deep stacks led to some rather slow play for start of the final table.
The game of the day 2 was extremely interesting because the size of the stacks were quite deep and even the bottom players were very close in chips.
Until the fifth round of blinds that Day 2, nobody had got eliminated but soon Dan Shak fell at the hands of Depa.
Depa continued his fabulous run and settled for the second place. Lehr was behind Depa's two pair, but when he faded the river he won the event and Depa took home $222,000 pay day whereas Lehr took the big prize.
