David Kingsley found himself nursing a stack of only five big blinds and moved all in with ace-jack only to find a caller in the shape of William Bennet who held king-seven. Both players improved to top pair on the flop, but Bennet caught a third king on the turn to send Kingsley to the rail.

Bennet was the next to fall after running into a pair of queens in quick succession. First, Bennet’s ace-jack failed to improve against the queens of Pop. Then Bennet pushed the rest of his stack in while holding pocket sixes only to see Mark Elliott ultimately win with a pair of queens that improved to a set.

Sixth place went to Robert Moss who four-bet all in with a pair of kings and ran into the pocket aces of Elliot before Neil Slater crashed out in fifth place.

Robert Boon was then eliminated in fourth place when his top pair failed to hold against the flush draw of Shay Ahluwalia. Despite winning Boon’s chips, Ahluwalia was the third-place finisher when Elliott’s jack-ten hit a runner-runner straight to crack Ahluwalia’s pair of eights.

Almost an hour of one-on-one action was required to settle the tournament and it ultimately went Pop’s way. In the final hand, Elliott committed his shortening stack with {8-Spades} and Pop called with the dominating {K-Clubs}{J-Clubs}. The five community cards ran {10-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}, which meant Pop’s king-kicker played and Elliott was resigned to second place.
