In heads-up, Peters had a significant advantage over Jaffee. However, soon their stacks became almost equal. In the pre-final hand, Peters limped with 4♦-♥ and Jaffee checked with 8♥-4♠.
J♣-4♣-3♣ were dealt on the flop and David hit two pairs. Jared made a check-call. 4♥ appeared on the turn and improved David’s hand to a full house and Jared hit trips. Jaffee checked on the turn and Peters made a large bet. Jared decided to call David's over-bet on the 9♠ river and as a result, he left with 10 BB.
In the next (final) hand, Peters shoved with A♥-8♣, but Jaffee called his bet with K♠-2♣. David managed to resist, by hitting a pair of eights and became the champion.
