Perrone’s career earnings before this win were around $750,000 with a WSOP Bracelet in October. This is the first ‘high roller’ win for Perrone, and usually, he likes to play the 3K buy-ins or lower.

Final Day Action
The final day was all about quick strategies and being aggressive. The field came down to just eleven players before the dinner break. The whole environment was a bit slow after the break, and it took three hours (60 hands) for the bubble to burst. Noel Rodriguez’s elimination confirmed a cash prize for the rest of the players.
Philip Shing was the next victim of elimination. Although he had the chip lead for almost half of the play, Shing was unable to convert that lead into a win. The play continued for more than an hour, and then Jeremy Lyons lost to preflop Jacks vs Kings. He earned $13,956 for eighth place. Ryan Riske’s play concluded when his stakes kept on decreasing, and eventually, went home with $16,597 for his seventh position.
Bin Weng emerged as the chip leader as the day began. He was playing aggressively but lost his momentum later at the final table. Weng took $21,123 for sixth place. Brandon seemed to regret his decision when he went for a bet of 400,000, to which Alain Bauer raised all in. The Q-9 of Baur defeated the J-10 of Lulov. He earned $27,391 for fifth place.
The play progressed slowly, and the next elimination took two hours when Badr Imejjane lost to Farid Jattin. Jattin took the lead on the flop A-10-J, and the turn showed J (Spades). The 7 (Diamonds) were enough to send Imejjane home with $38,907 for fourth place.
The Three-Handed Play
The chip count at this stage was Alian Bauer 2,575,000, Farid Jattin 2,075,000, and Michael Perrone 1,600,000. Bauer’s luck didn’t favor him as he lost a lot of his stacks when he decided to go all-in with the 7 (Diamonds) and 4(Diamonds) against Jattin’s A (Diamonds) and A (Hearts). The turn came out to be Q (Spades) and the river showed 4 (Clubs), which decided Bauer’s fate. He earned $52,054 for his third position.
The Heads Up
The heads-up play continued for almost 20 minutes. Farid decided to move all-in for 585,000, to which Perrone replied with a call. Jatin’s Q (Clubs) and 10 (Diamonds) were up against Perrone’s A(Spades) and 6(Clubs). The flop showed 4 (Hearts) J (Diamonds) J (hearts), and the turn came out to be 7(Diamonds), while the river was J (Clubs). Perrone clapped his hands as he became the champion.
