The successful German player Christoph Vogelsang became the runner-up with a payout of $315 020. Third place and $193 530 in prize money went to Italian Dario Sammartino. Chance Kornuth was also able to get to the final of the tournament, who took seventh place with $75,040 in prize money. With the exception of Vogelsang and Sammartino, the rest of the players at the final table turned out to be poker players from the USA.

The final of the tournament was hot. The last hand started with a limp from Smith, who held A♥ 4♦. Vogelsang raised with A♣ 10♣ and Dan Smith moved all in. Christoph called and the board was dealt 8♥ 4♠ 2♦, and this allowed Smith to flop a pair. On the 7♦ turn, Christoph's chances were reduced, and the 3♠ river gave Dan Smith his first bracelet.
