All but two players who navigated their way through to the nine-handed final table walked away with at least four figures for their efforts. An anonymous player busted in ninth for £800 before Winston Jones saw his tournament end abruptly in an eighth place finish worth £925.

Michal Czeszel was the next to fall; his elimination in seventh place came with a £1,100 payout. The final six then became five when Emiel Sennema crashed out and made his way to the Dusk Till Dawn cashier desk to collect $1,400.

A nice, round £2,000 made its way to the bank account of fifth-place finisher Ryan Kilbey before Adam Keeney (£3,000) and Alu Ayub (£5,000) fell by the wayside and sent the WCOAP Main Event into the heads-up stage.

Owston locked horns with Simao Manuel Gomes heads-up. The final hand saw a short-stacked Gomes move all-in with and Owston make the call with . The flop kept Owston in front but gave Gomes a gutshot straight draw. The turn was then joined by the river, improving Owston to an unnecessary full house and gifting him the WCOAP Main Event title.
