The final three players agree to a deal where each of them will make $3,000 each. They would continue playing for the prize packages, and the winner would receive an extra $250.

Defending champion Randal Fernandez moved all in from the small blind, and Chris Cote called all in from the big blind for about 600,000 with 10s9h.

Fernandez turned over Jd8s, and Cote needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Jh7c6c4hAs — Cote flopped a gutshot straight draw, but improved no further. Fernandez won the pot with a flopped pair of jacks to eliminate Cote in third place.
