Tin Win prevails in Accumulator ($10,000)
Well that was fast! Just as we were ready for heads-up play to get underway, massive chip leader Tin Win did an ICM deal with Andrew Michael – Stacked Social’s Managing Director – and Tin was declared the winner without a hand being played.
This was in part due to the fact that the final table was desperately needed for a Main Event satellite that has registrations growing by the minute.
Andrew scores a solid $7,000 payday before ICM calculations, as does Tin who also has an Accumulator title to boast about.
Congrats to Tin for a spectacular final table performance and a well-deserved win.

Players are now on a 10-minute break.
Michael ups the aggression

Mitch Lewis eliminated in 7th ($1,650)
Shane Webb announced he was all-in from early position and it was folded around to Mitch Lewis in the big blind who made the call. The cards were turned over to reveal Webb in great position for a double holding A♦K♦ to the Q♦K♣ of Lewis.
The Q♣8♦6♥ flop had Webb looking for the exit but the 7♦ turn and 6♦ river saved the day as he soared to 320,000.
With just 24,000 left, Lewis was eliminated next hand.
Level 20: 6,000/12,000 (12,000)
Daniel Flynn eliminated in 8th ($1,250)
Daniel Flynn announced he was all-in before Shane Webb shoved over the top from the small blind. Tin Win then called all-in from the big blind and the cards were shown.
It was a huge cooler for both Flynn and Webb as they showed 10♣10♥ and K♣K♥ respectively only to be trailing the A♦A♣ of Tin.
The board ran out 3♠4♠Q♠5♠ to send Flynn to the rail and send a massive pot Tin’s way.

It was Michael in great shape with Q♥Q♠ against the 7♥7♣ of Lewis and the A♦10♣ of Cav.
The board ran out K♣10♦5♠6♥J♦ as Cav hits the rail, while Michael scores better than a double-up.
Mitch Lewis – 570,000

Final table chip counts

The board ran out 8♦2♦9♦5♣9♠ as the field is slashed to 9 players. We now have our official final table.
Big double for Sergio
Sergio Cav got his last 144,000 into the middle in bad shape holding 3♥3♣ against the 5♠5♥ of Shane Webb.
The A♥7♣6♦ flop didn’t bring any help but the turn 3♦ did. The river 10♣ was a brick as Sergio moves to 290,000. Webb is still in good shape with 550,000.
Level 18: 4,000/8,000 (8,000)
Players are now on a 10-minute break
The bubble bursts
On a board reading 2♥3♠5♦8♣, Gabby X announced he was all-in and Mitch Lewis quickly called.
Gabby needed plenty of help with Q♠J♣ against the A♣8♠ of Lewis. The river K♦ wasn’t it as the field was cut to 10.
All remaining players are guaranteed at least $870 with a tidy $10,000 sitting up top for the winner.
Roman’s empire crumbles
Roman Priplotski was all-in for his last 70,000 with A♣9♣ against the 4♦4♥ of Mitch Lewis.
The dealer showed the 10♣ in the window as Priplotski said, “That’s a good start! He quickly changed his tune though as the whole flop fell 10♣4♠10♥.
With no miracle running cards arriving, he hit the rail in 12th. Adam Cusenza has also hit the rail, meaning we are now on the money bubble!
On a board reading 10♣Q♦3♣, Tin Win bet 35,000 and Jon Stark shoved for his remaining 75,000. Overnight chip leader Shane Webb then re-shoved, forcing Tin into the tank.
He eventually folded as Stark showed Q♣K♦ – ahead of the A♣8♣ of Webb.
The turn 7♠ and the river 2♦ were safe for Stark as he climbed to 230,000.
Billy Argyros shoved for his last 19,500 and was called by Mitch Lewis and Nick Williams.
Both Lewis and Williams checked it down on a board of 9♦3♠4♦10♣8♥ and it was Lewis with 2♠2♣ who scooped the pot as Argyros showed A♥J♥ and Williams A♦5♦.
Argyros quickly stood up and left the room as we’re down to 14.

Nick Williams – 205,000

The 5♥6♠7♠ flop have Lewis plenty of outs and even more arrived on the J♠ turn. Chehade was looking to dodge a bullet but couldn’t as the 4♣ river gave Lewis the straight.
We are down to 17 remaining.
Having lost a good chunk of his stack to Daniel Flynn, Lionel Seah was all-in next hand holding A♥9♦ against the Q♠10♥ of Mitch Lewis. The board ran out Q-high as Seah hits the rail.
Lewis moves to around 160,000 with that hand as the tournament staff break down a table with 18 remaining.
Early double for Flynn
Daniel Flynn shoved for his last 41,000 and received a call from Lionel Seah.
Flynn needed some help with J♥10♣ against the A♠7♦ of Seah, and it duly arrived as the board ran out K♣Q♠J♣2♠3♥.
Flynn moves to 85,000 with that hand.
