Despite beginning the second day of action 35th in chips of the remaining 59 players, Ryan Hogan navigated his way through the field en route to the victory.  A heads-up chop was made between Hogan and Event 4 champion Greg Fishberg and as the chip leader, Hogan was officially the winner of Event 6.

For Hogan, this marked his first cash here at the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, but just a few months ago Hogan won an event at Seminole Hard Rock Tampa in the 2020 Winter Poker Open.
