After busting Bleznick, Coleman built his stack to more than 1,000,000 in chips and stayed a force from there on out.

Jeremy Ausmus was eliminated on the money bubble, and then it was Dylan Weisman busting in fifth place for $50,750. Alex Livingston then knocked out John Hennigan in fourth place for $79,750 before Coleman eliminated Chino Rheem in third place for $116,000. That set up the heads-up match between Livingston and Coleman, with Livingston having the lead to start.

After reaching head-up play, Coleman and Livingston agreed to a deal that modified the payouts and had them playing for a $25,000 remainder. From there, heads-up play swung back and forth as the chip lead changed numerous times between the two. Eventually after about three hours of play, Coleman opened up a lead that Livingston ultimately couldn't come back from. Coleman finished Livingston in a hand of limit hold'em, with Livingston taking second place for $232,870.

Coleman got the victory and the extra $25,000, winning the event for $245,630.

Coleman also added 174 PGT leaderboard points, which was good enough to push him into the top 40 of the PGT leaderboard. Coleman now has 857 points on the season and is currently in 39th place. At the end of the 2023 PGT season, the top 40 players as ranked by the PGT leaderboard qualify for the season-ending PGT Championship $1,000,000 freeroll.
