"Gorby3975" began the final table of the Sunday Million second in chips, but eliminated two opponents by the time five players were remaining, to grab hold of more than 60 percent of the chips in play. "Gorby3975" and "puicachamp" struck a heads-up deal, and though "puicachamp" fought back to capture the lead, he ultimately fell short of the title.

"Gorby3975" took back the lead and with a little luck, closed the deal. "Gorby3975" was holding {k-Hearts}{j-Spades} when the chips got into the middle. He was behind against "puicachamp's" {A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}, but a king hit the flop to lock up the victory for "Gorby3975," capping off a memorable week for the Russian, who last Sunday claimed victory in the PokerStars Sunday Storm.
