What started with 22,374 players is now down to the final nine. On Tuesday, Event#5: The Colossus played down from 39 players to the final table and saw plenty of players see their dreams of winning live poker’s biggest-ever tournament come to an end.
Among those to leave empty handed were Mike Leah (39th – $23,022), Ryan Laplante (29th – $27,215), Anthony Spinella (22nd – $32,352), Adam Lamphere (19th – $32,352), and Bradley Burns (10th – $55,968), who suffered a great deal of bad luck on the last hand of the day, the same hand that saw Aditya Prasetyo finish with a hefty chip lead of 30% of the chips in play.
In the hand, with the blinds at 200,000/400,000/50,000, Prasetyo opened for 850,000 from middle position and Burns moved all in for approximately 6 million from the button. The blinds both folded and Prasetyo snap-called.
Burns, dreams thoroughly crushed, was left drawing dead and watched helplessly as the turn and river cards were run out to make it official. With that, the final table was set with Prasetyo bagging up 39,300,000. Here’s a look at the official final table:
