Daniels entered the final day of play fourth in chips with six players remaining. He knocked out Michael Wang in seventh place at the end of Day 1 and then went on to knock out every other player at the final table on Saturday, which included a double knockout of Chris Moorman and Sean Winter.
The double-elimination hand happened with five players remaining. Daniels had ace-king and was up against Moorman with ace-queen and Winter with ace-five. Daniels was already the chip leader at the start of the hand and extended his lead even further with this pot.
