The final day began with six remaining and Neves in the lead. Canada’s Jamil Wakil was the first to fall, with his K-J being outflopped but the Q-J suited of Christopher Csik. Three diamonds on the flop left Wakil’s unimproved king high drawing dead, and he was awarded $307,500 after the formalities of the turn and river.

Despite scoring that knockout, Csik was the next to be sent packing. He got all-in with pocket kings leading the A-J suited of Alexandre Raymond, but an ace-high flop left Csik in tough shape. The latter streets were of no help and the American was sent home with a career-high payday of $399,800.

Raymond’s run in this event came to a brutal end when his pocket queens clashed with the pocket kings of Neves. All of the chips went in preflop and the larger pocket pair held up to narrow the field to three. Raymond earned $519,600 as the fourth-place finisher.
