Final Day Recap
Heading into the final day, it was six-time WSOP bracelet winner and GGPoker Ambassador Daniel Negreanu with the chip lead. He would ride that big stack all the way to a 23rd place finish, earning over $8,900 for his finish.
Other notables who finished in the top 100 included Mikhail Semin, Anton Morgenstern, Nick Maimone, Toby Lewis and recent WSOP bracelet winner Renan Bruschi.
When the final table started, it was Yuri "sjeverest" Suvorov who held the chip lead, while Livshitz was actually one of the shorter stacks. However, Livshitz quickly went to work, knocking out short stack Shihhui Wang in seventh place. He would follow that up with a double through Lasse Enojarvi, and then eliminate one of the most accomplished players at the final table, Niklas Astedt, in fifth place.
Idris Ambraisse would be the next player to exit, and his knockout was courtesy of Suvorov. Three-handed play took a while, before Livshitz secured the knockout of Shengchao Zhu, when his aces held against the player from Singapore.
Aces would prove the trick during heads-up play, which lasted only a few minutes, with Livshitz holding them once more to eliminated Suvorov and earning himself his first ever WSOP bracelet.
