Daniel Gagnon had been struggling to get something going in the last level, but he did manage to buy the blinds once or twice. This time, his shove was not getting passed Robert Courrière.
Gagnon was drawing dead on the turn, and walked away in good spirits. He takes $2,730 for his 6th place finish. Congratulations!
Moments before Gagnon’s bust, we witnessed the fold of the year. Eric Al Halaby limped in and saw a flop with both blinds. Eddy Gotfryd, first to act, dunked 500K, a slight over bet. The big blind folded and Halaby, after thinking for some time, announced fold, but showed his hand:
Gotfryd congratulated him for the fold and opened ! The crowd was speechless.
