For me, Ivey or Saout should have won (Ivey busted with AK vs Moon's AQ , then Saout busted with QQ vs Cada 2's). I was really disappointed by the play of Cada...its a "pro", but there, i show his poker was not really creative and calculate : he made some kind of bad moves and get lucky... i dont like it. Maybe he played very well in others tournaments, but here, in this final table, he made all wrong.
About Moon, well i think he plays his final table like a chopdowner that dont really care : just look : each time he raise and get reraised, he pushed all in (with marginal hands) without many thinking... no guys, he didnt really played well his final. Maybe better in the HU, but again it was same strategy, always pushing....

Above all, Joe Cada knew how to play that final table, he first wait for Ivey to step out and then manage to get to the end. Ok so you have those hands you say, but that isnt luck, that was not all-in pre-flop plays against the oponents, those hands were slow hands, with time to think and to see table cards. Thats why i dont like to play about football with some friends, because after the game is finished, they can only speak about the result and one or two shots, and thats not the right way to evaluate someone's value in a game.
