After 12 hours of play, Ethan “RampageP” Yau collected the $164,494 first-place prize and his first WSOP bracelet – all while streaming on his YouTube channel.

Following “WinCiry” being eliminated on the money bubble in 372nd place, WSOP bracelet winners Lee “Roofus” Watkinson, Kevin “ImaLuckSac” MacPhee, Ankush “rickrosstheb” Mandavia, Jeff “NedrudRelyt” Madsen, Mike “Mouth123” Matusow, Ryan “Adopt_a_Dogg0” Leng, Nick “samadhi” Binger, Ryan “GoFeltaFish” Eriquezzo, Ryan “Im.Sorry” Torgersen, Jonathan “Art.Vandelay” Dokler, Ben “WhyIsGomora” Yu, Nipun “javatini” Java, Guy “PhilLaak” Dunlap, Philip “tomte” Yeh, Chris “Robotbob47” Moorman, Daniel “DNegs” Negreanu, and Eric “circleball” Baldwin all finished in-the-money but fell short of the final table.
Mohammad “Tmomoney” Mufti entered the final table as chip leader, but Yau soon vaulted into the chip lead courtesy of the double elimination of Michael “Mike91680” Guzzardi and Event #7 winner Joon “jykpoker” Kim. Mufti responded with a knockout of his own when he eliminated Matt “OMG”Obama” Iles in seventh holding with ace-four against king-queen. Jason “TATTOOMONEY” Scott then would exit in sixth running his eight-six into Blake “shampainpopn” Whittington’s pocket tens. David “reallytight” Kim flopped a straight, but Yau make a runner-runner flush to eliminate Kim in fifth, as Whittington exited in fourth running into Yau’s aces. Mufti’s run would end in third when his pocket nines were outdrawn by Brian “LakersGTD” Patrick’s ace-queen, and heads-up play would begin with Yau holding a three-to-two chip advantage over Patrick. On the final hand, Yau’s pocket fours would hold true against Patrick’s ace-eight, and Yau would be crowned the Event #26 champion.
