Here is how the last hand of the event went down: Justin Bonomo moved all-in preflop holding 10♦-9♠ and was called by Michael Addamo with K♥-J♥. On the Q♦-J♣-10♥ flop, Bonomo got a straight draw, while Addamo caught a pair of jacks.

The turn brought 10♠, thus improving Bonomo's hand to three of a kind, but A♣ showed up on the river, making Addamo a champion. We note that only 13 poker players entered the ITM zone; the lowest payout was $ 80 000.
