For a while, it looked like Jay Farber would steam roll his way to the main event title. Instead, Ryan Riess made it a contest by claiming his fourth bounty at the final table.
On hand no. 171, Amir Lehavot moved all in with pocket sevens, only to be called by the pocket tens of Riess.
The board rolled out cleanly for Riess and Lehavot, who was the shortest stack for much of the final table, was finally eliminated in third place.
Lehavot, who has one WSOP bracelet, added $3,727,823 to his career tournament earnings, bringing his total to just over $5.3 million.
The 38-year-old Israel-born poker pro came into the final table with the second-largest stack, but was never able to get things going like he wanted to. Instead, he put on an ICM (Indpendent Chip Model) clinic, chipping his way up the pay ladder for an additional $2.1 million.
