Yau entered the second day of play with the second biggest stack and busted four of his five opponents en route to the victory!
Three-way, Yau sent Stephen Song packing and started the heads-up match with an overwhelming 12:1 chip lead. Foxen being the legend he is, managed to bridge the gap to a great extent (2:1 chip deficit), but on the final hand of the night, Yau’s pocket eights prevailed over Foxen’s to get him the title.
With the top 11 places being paid, Adrian Mateos money-bubbled the event, finishing in 12th place.
Other nine players who cashed in the event included Stephen Song (3rd for $98,800), Michael Brinkenhoff (4th for $76,000), Dylan DeStefano (5th for $60,800), Masashi Oya (6th for $45,600), Event #1 champion Jeremy Ausmus (7th for $38,000), Jacky Wang (8th for $30,400), Daniel Negreanu (9th for $22,800), Corey Wade (10th for $22,800), and the current 2022 PGT Leaderboard topper Stephen Chidwick (11th for $22,800).
