In the heads-up, the audience saw the battle between Jake Daniels and Dan Shak. The key hand was the hand in which Shak lost 75% of the chips in his stack. He made a straight, but Jake showed a higher straight, which allowed Daniels to win a huge pot.

On the last hand of the tournament, Dan moved all-in with K-7, and Jake called with A-3. The flop came A-K-J, the turn was 8, and the river was 5. For Shak, the result was a second place, and Daniels became a champion with $218 000 in prize money.
