When 14 of 2,017 players returned for the final day all eyes were on Phil Ivey, even as Taylor Paur held the chip lead. But Mr. Ivey didn't get many minutes in the spotlight as he was the first player to be eliminated (14th place ). Once Phil Ivey was out of the picture, all eyes were on Taylor Paur, who made it to the final table as the chip leader.

It only took 13 hands on the final table before he eliminated both Ryan Austin and Kyle Cartwright in the very same hand. Player after player hit the rail after that and Paur began three-handed play with a massive lead: (5,000,000) over his opponents, Roy Weiss (745,000) and Tai Nguyen (475,000).

Nguyen was sent packing in third place and Paur entered heads up play with a 4:1 chip lead over Weiss. Paur had full control at the beginning of the match, but a few lucky cards changed everything and Weiss overtook the chip lead for a short while.

After dinner break, Weiss, who had less than a million chips to gamble with, changed strategy and instead of just calling most of Paur's bets, he decided to move all in on every hand. The strategy worked until Paur picked up decent cards and called to take down a massive pot. He won the tournament just 5 hands after that pot and claimed his first bracelet and $340,260! A well deserved win!

Final table results:

1 Taylor Paur $340,260
2 Roy Weiss $211,794
3 Tai Nguyen $147,220
4 Alexander Barlow $106,027
5 DJ MacKinnon $77,491
6 Phillip Hui $57,324
7 Daniel Idema $42,962
8 Ryan Austin $32,608
9 Kyle Cartwright $25,041

This Taylor really knew how to control the situation of being chip leader, even with some usual headaches ahead. He wasn't affraid of Ivey and that was the best he could feel, as he knew how he should behave if he wanted to put the hands on the first prize. He did well and he took the tourney. Looks easy!

He did great, i'm sot sure why but always seems that the chip leader from the beginning of the last table end up in the middle of the leaderboard...
