Pierre Paul Paulin took over the lead midway through the night and managed to book a seat on the final table, but ultimately finished one spot shy of the money. In-the-money eliminations leading up to heads-up play included Michel Merletti (6th, $800), Izadyar Yadegari (5th, $1,180), Ivan Driard (4th, $1,775) and Jean-Philippe Piquette (3rd, $2,600).
Kinson Cho-Kin Cheung began heads-up play versus Randy Vermette with a 2-to-1 chip lead, however Randy chip his way up before finding a huge double-up to take over the lead. The money went all-in pre-flop, and Kinson’s hand was scooped by Randy’s on a board. Randy now had an overwhelming 10-to-1 chip lead, and sealed the win on the very next hand.
