cmyworth — 20,393,889

iggymcfly — 16,758,674

pianospike — 16,282,985

CharismA3 — 8,890,565

Jonathan "MONSTER_DONG" Karamalikis — 4,168,825

Jonathan "MONSTER_DONG" Karamalikis was the first finalist to exit, doing so during the 250,000/500,000/50,000 level. The Aussie shoved from the button for 3,168,825 with {9-Hearts}{7-Spades} and hoped to get the blinds to fold. Chip leader cmyworth called out of the big blind with {j-Clubs}{10-Spades} and won the hand as the board ran out {j-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{6-Spades}. Karamalikis took home $12,320 for ninth place. CharismA3 busted a few hands later. On the button, iggymcfly shoved for over 18 million and CharismA3 called all in from the big blind for 8,040,565 with {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs}. It led iggymcfly's {q-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}, but the board rolled out {q-Spades}{9-Spades}{4-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{5-Spades} and CharismA3 was out in eighth place for $20,240.

Finishing in seventh and sixth place were IZSHUA ($30,800) and softel ($44,000). During the next two levels both players were all but invisible at the table; neither played many hands and both were eliminated with stacks of less than one big blind. At 400,000/800,000/80,000, chkplz finished in fifth after moving all in from the button for 2,653,056 holding {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}. In the big blind cmyworth found {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds} and took the hand down when the board came {j-Spades}{8-Spades}{10-Clubs}{10-Spades}{q-Spades}. Chkplz earned $61,600 for his finish. Pianospike departed next. First to act, iggymcfly opened to 2,100,000 and pianospike shipped it in from the button for 10,991,317. Iggymcfly called with {q-Spades}{10-Spades} and slightly trailed pianospike's {a-Hearts}{6-Hearts}. The board ran out {6-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{3-Hearts} as iggymcfly made a straight to eliminate pianospike in fourth place for $79,200. At the end of the level, davidb666 made an all-in call with {k-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} for 2,726,144 and was up against iggymcfly's {k-Spades}{5-Clubs}. The board ran out {6-Spades}{5-Spades}{k-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} and davidb666's tournament ended in third place for $97,680.

The chip counts at the start of heads-up play:

iggymcfly — 71,012,632

cmyworth — 16,987,368

The tables turned quickly and cmyworth nearly evened the match before taking a huge lead at 500,000/1,000,000/100,000, when all in preflop, cmyworth's {7-Spades}{7-Hearts} held up against iggymcfly's {3-Hearts}{3-Clubs}. The heads-up duel ended a few hands later. Iggymcfly was all in for 9,281,056 with {a-Clubs}{2-Hearts} and cmyworth called with {k-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}. The board ran out {4-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{2-Spades}{7-Clubs} and iggymcfly collected $143,440 as the runner-up, with cmyworth winning the PokerStars Sunday Million and $213,136.

Majchi — 3,460,176

KingFish83 — 1,780,335

govshark2 — 1,509,709

flikkflak — 1,466,897

Dwayne "DwayneStacey" Stacey — 611,784

QuirkyDragon3 — 434,924

BaDMnKeY was the first to exit the final table, during the 17,000/34,000/4,000 level. BaDMnKeY got it all in with {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}, but ran into Adnan "nanQ" Qureshi's {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}. BaDMnKeY took the lead when the flop and turn came out and read {10-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{q-Hearts}. However, the {k-Diamonds} landed on the river and BaDMnKeY was out in ninth place with $10,848.64. QuirkyDragon3 fell at 20,000/40,000/5,000. He opened to 200,000 under the gun and Dwayne Stacey called from middle position. The flop was {5-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{a-Spades} and QuirkyDragon3 checked to Stacey, who bet enough to force QuirkyDragon3 into a choice for his tournament life. QuirkyDragon3 called all in for 41,924 with {q-Clubs}{j-Clubs} but was in dire straits against Stacey's {a-Diamonds}{10-Spades}. The turn and river came {8-Hearts} and {q-Spades} and QuirkyDragon3 was the eighth-place finisher for $14,572.80.

Online tournament stud govshark2 was felted shortly thereafter. Under the gun, govshark2 opened to 99,877, and Majchi re-raised from the small blind to 319,754. After a few moments govshark2 went all in for 1,179,709, holding {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}, and Majchi called but trailed with {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}. Unfortunately for govshark2, the board rolled out {q-Spades}{9-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{4-Spades} and he took $18,620.80 for seventh. Flikkflak busted next after making a move with {q-Diamonds}{7-Spades}. Majchi picked it off with {8-Spades}{8-Hearts} and when the board came {4-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{3-Clubs}, flikkflak had $24,773.76 for sixth.

Dwayne "DwayneStacey" Stacey exited in fifth place a long five-handed battle at 30,000/60,000/7,500. Adnan "nanQ" Qureshi opened to 144,144 from the cutoff and Dwayne Stacey called from the button. The flop came {q-Spades}{10-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} and Qureshi, with {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}, check-called Stacey's all-in shove. Stacey was drawing almost dead with {j-Clubs}{10-Hearts} and was eliminated when the {6-Spades} turn and {4-Spades} river hit the table. Dwayne Stacey won $33,436.48 for fifth place. Va Shon "Julian Verse" Watkins went to the rail at 40,000/80,000/10,000. He started the action with a raise to 189,943 from the cutoff and Adnan Qureshi re-raised to 482,775 in the big blind. Watkins went all in for 2,928,264 with {j-Spades}{j-Hearts} and Qureshi called with {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}. The board ran out {7-Hearts}{k-Spades}{a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} as Qureshi won the race to send Watkins to home in fourth place for $44,528.

Adnan "nanQ" Qureshi fell in third at 60,000/120,000/15,000. Hhe made it 287,500 to go from the small blind and KingFish83 re-raised to 840,000. Qureshi shoved for 2,298,143 and KingFish83 called with {k-Spades}{q-Diamonds}. That trailed Qureshi's {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}, but the board rolled out {q-Spades}{5-Spades}{j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} and Qureshi was out in third place for $56,672. The chip counts to start heads-up play:

KingFish83 — 9,337,580

Majchi — 2,806,420

The tournament ended at the 80,000/160,000/20,000 level. Majchi went all in for just over 1.5 million with {k-Diamonds}{4-Spades} and KingFish83 called with {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}. The board came {9-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and Majchi finished as the runner-up, earning $86,546.24.
