The bubble of this tournament was very interesting as well, seeing Ivan Demidov eliminated in 11th and the mystery high stakes player “scout326” being eliminated in 10th place.

This final table was comprised of many nosebleed cash pros as well as many accomplished tournament pros. The first player eliminated would be anthonyff shoving AJ against mig.com’s TT. Anthonyff lost the flip as mig.com flopped a T and then turned another T for quads and anthonyff was elimnated in 9th place for $22k. BrynKenney would be the 2nd eliminated when he got it all in preflop with KQ against kenny05′s AT and bricked out. Bryn took home $35.1k for his 8th place finish.
Eventually the final table boiled down to SUNDAYKING a relatively unknown tournament pro against nosebleed cash specialist brianm15. The match went on for a fair bit before SUNDAYKING and brianm15 decided to look at numbers. Numbers couldn’t be decided upon, despite brianm15 being sure that he was dominating SUNDAYKING and play resumed. However it was SUNDAYKING who ended up winning the tournament in a pot that went like this.
SUNDAYKING minraised the button to 100k
brianm15 3b the BB to ~287k and SUNDAYKING called.
The flop came AK5 all clubs, brianm15 bet around half pot and SUNDAYKING minraised.
brianm15 then shoved his remaining 1.8million chips and was quickly called by SUNDAYKING.
