Final Table Action
"FakeAZN" went into the final table as the overwhelming chip leader with 25,557,179 chips, having more than a third of chips in play in their stack. Stoyanov was in second place with around a quarter of chips in play.
This left the remaining seven players short-stacked with their stacks ranging from 3,000,000 to 5,000,000 with the blinds starting at 300,000/600,000.
The first player to be eliminated was Benjamin "Vibrato" Craig whose ace-jack was defeated by Stoyanov's king-queen. This was the beginning of Stoyanov's heater as within minutes he eliminated Masden after spiking a six on the flop.
At this point, it appeared any two cards would do the trick for the Bulgarian. Stoyanov then eliminated Gabriel "SmurfyShaq" Tileff despite being in a dominated position again as his ace-seven defeated Tileff's ace-nine by hitting a seven on the flop.
Belgian Gary "goumesss" Hasson was the next to exit in sixth place after his pocket nines were defeated by a flush from Tsinis. Stoyanov then eliminated Nino "elnino" Jabbes, once again with a weaker ace. Stoyanov hit a five on the flop to knockout Jabbes.
All of these eliminations occurred within ten minutes and the heads-up match was a marathon in comparison clocking in at 17 minutes. Tsinis went into heads-up play with only three big blinds compared to the 84 big blinds of Stoyanov's.
Tsinis made a good fight despite the massive chip disparity and chipped up to the 12,000,000 mark, but his luck soon ran out as his pocket deuces were beaten by Stoyanov's Broadway straight.
This concludes the coverage of this online event. The next online bracelet event will take place on Sunday, July 3rd at 3.30 p.m. local time for a $500 Deepstack. As always PokerNews will provide live updates of this prestigious tournament.
