The final four players were all looking for their first bracelets, but it was Leonard and Jørstad who came out on top after overcoming an almost 6:1 heads-up chip advantage.

An Instagram post, of all things, led to the Leonard and Jørstad tag team. 

Jørstad praised his partner following a series of "absurd" plays midway through the tournament.

"He was just making some absurd adjustments," said Jørstad. "Folding tens to a three-bet and the opponent shows aces. Folding jacks and the guy shows queens. Just absurd plays. And I was like 'Ok, we're winning this.'"

England's Leonard has now accumulated just shy of $3 million in live tournament career play while Norway's Jørstad is a relative newcomer.
