It was a long road for the new champion. Action concluded late on Day 5 of the tournament after a grueling week of poker. A total of 697 entries took to the tables over three starting flights before 294 players returned for Day 2. It took a few more days before the official final table of six players was set, and Mahoney was the short stack to begin the day.
Brian Altman was the chip leader when play resumed on the televised WPT final table, and he was the only player with a previous WPT title. Darryll Fish came in as the second-biggest stack and was another favorite as a player with both experience and talent.
Mahoney won the top prize of CAD $453,122 plus the WPT Tournament of Champions entry as well as a Hublot watch and the signature Playground Poker Club trophy belt, not to mention the prestige of the WPT title that will always accompany his name.
