Among those in the field were Phil Ivey, Tom Dwan, David Ulliott, Greg Raymer, Jason Mercier, Bertrand Grospellier, and T.J. Cloutier. By the end of Day 1, only 102 players were left, and all were looking to make both the money and the final table.

Cloutier made a deep run in this event and finished 38th. 12 players remained at the end of Day 2, so we had to play down to a final table to start Day 3 action. Patrick Hanoteau started the final table as the chip leader with Miguel Proulx only 1,000 chips behind. Here are how the final nine started final table play:
Heads-up play in this event would be between L.J. Klein and Miguel Proulx. Klein held 2.775 Million to 1.695 Million to start the heads-up match. The stacks stayed pretty close but Proulx managed to take the chip lead after picking up a nice pot with a shove on the turn. Proulx led 2.5 Million to 1.97 Million when the final hand went down.
Klein raised to 125,000 on the button and Proulx made the call. The flop fell J-10-4, all spades. Proulx checked to Klein, who bet out 75,000. Proulx made the call and the turn fell the 9d. Proulx bet 200,000 and Klein made the call. On the river Kh, Proulx checked to Klein and he moved all-in. Proulx snap-called and turned over As-Qd-Qh-2s for the nut flush. Klein had moved in with two pair and was eliminated in 2nd place.
Miguel Proulx is the Event #28 Champion. In addition to the gold champions bracelet, he took home $315,311.
