After several limped pots with chips being traded back and forth, a few jams from both players went through. When Gaetan Balleur pulled the trigger once more with around 350,000 in chips, Alen Bakovic snap-called.

Gaetan Balleur: 10c9h

The Ac5h2c flop gave Bakovic the top set but Balleur had outs on the Qc turn. Eventually, the 4h river ended the tournament at 4.56am local time as Balleur had to settle for the runner-up spot and $5,900. Bakovic scored the top prize of $9,500 and first WSOP Circuit gold ring.
