Michael "YrrsiNN" Huber was the first to depart, during the 1,500/3,000/300 level. From early position iCeVeNoM raised to 8,000, and Huber popped it up to 21,900 in the small blind, which iCeVeNoM called. The flop came {5-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} and Huber checked it to iCeVeNoM, who bet 23,028. Huber went all in for 63,028 with {4-Clubs}{4-Spades} and iCeVeNoM called with {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}. The turn and river came {2-Clubs}{2-Spades} and Michael "YrrsiNN" Huber had $6,702.50 for ninth. Later in the level, edfelson was sent away. With a big stack, Jon "xxjondxx" Delong raised enough on the button to force the blinds to an all-in choice. With {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs} edfelson called all in from the small blind and was leading Delong's {q-Hearts}{8-Hearts}. However, the board ran out {8-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{2-Diamonds} as edfelson finished in eighth place for $9,575.

A flurry of bustouts at 2,000/4,000/400 began with Evan "PURPLE"K"99" Parkes finishing in seventh. He shoved from the cutoff for 67,469 with {a-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} and found action from iCeVeNoM in the small blind with 6h6d. The board fell {8-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{3-Spades}{q-Diamonds} and Parkes was out in seventh place for $13,405. Geoff "GeoffRas22" Rasmussen went out next. He limped in from the small blind and iCeVeNoM raised to 11,234. Rasmussen re-raised all in for 98,356 and iCeVeNoM called with {10-Clubs}{10-Spades}, slightly leading Rasmussen's {k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}. The board rolled out {4-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{a-Diamonds} and Rasmussen finished sixth for $17,235.

A few hands later kalixalven departed as well. In the small blind kalixalven raised to 11,326 and Jon "xxjondxx" Delong shoved with the big stack. Kalixalven called all in for 81,000 with {a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} and fell to Delong's {k-Clubs}{q-Hearts} as the board ran out {5-Spades}{k-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}. Kalixalven collected $22,022.50 for the fifth-place showing. Norm427 departed next, after shoving from the small blind for 53,410 with {j-Diamonds}{9-Spades}, and being called by Jon Delong in the big blind with {a-Spades}{8-Hearts}. The board improved neither player and Norm427 finished in fourth place for $32,172.

At 3,000/6,000/600, ags104 busted. Jon Delong opened to 16,800 in the small blind and ags104 called out of the big blind. The flop came {8-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} and Delong led out 22,000. Ags104 then shoved all in for 140,557 and Delong quickly called with {q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}, which led ags104's {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}. The turn and river came {k-Spades}{5-Diamonds} and ags104 was out in third place for $42,130. The chip counts at the start of heads-up play were these:

Jon "xxjondxx" Delong: 693,871

iCeVeNoM: 455,129

The heads-up duel was fierce and lasted until the 5,000/10,000/1,000 level before Jon Delong took the tourney down. He min-raised to 20,000 and iCeVeNoM went all in with {a-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}. Delong called with {a-Clubs}{8-Spades} and was in bad shape, but caught the big break when the board came {7-Hearts}{7-Spades}{8-Hearts}{4-Spades}{3-Hearts}. iCeVeNoM took home $56,492.40 for finishing as runner-up, with Jon "xxjondxx" Delong cashing for $74,685 in winning the Stars Super Tuesday.

Busting from the final table first was ilovemypuppy, at 2,500/5,000/600. From the cutoff ilovemypuppy went all in for 67,679, and Masterhp called from the button. The blinds folded and the hands were {q-Diamonds}{10-Spades} for ilovemypuppy and {k-Spades}{j-Hearts} for Masterhp. The board rolled out {9-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} and ilovemypuppy finished in ninth place for $8,620. Daryll "Dfish" Fish went out next. He shoved in middle position for 54,962 with {a-Hearts}{4-Hearts} and found action from Jeff "jpapola" Papola on the button with {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}. The board came {6-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} and Fish returned to the deep with $10,775 for eighth.

At 4,000/8,000/1,000, swd805 was eliminated. Under the gun eisenhower1 opened to 19,585, and, next to act, Aaron Hacker called. In the cutoff swd805 shipped it in for 74,404 with {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} and Hacker was the lone caller, with {8-Hearts}{8-Spades}. The board ran out {9-Spades}{5-Spades}{k-Spades}{3-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} and swd805 departed in seventh place for $14,007.50. Hacker stayed hot and eliminated eisenhower1 three hands later. Casey "bigdogpckt5s" Jarzabek raised to 19,455 in the cutoff and eisenhower1 re-raised to 55,685 on the button. Aaron Hacker went all in for 390,918 in the small blind and eisenhower1 was the only one to come along, calling all in for 243,916 with {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}. Hacker was behind with {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}, but emerged victorious as the board fell {8-Clubs}{6-Spades}{j-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{q-Hearts} and eisenhower1 was out in sixth place for $21,500. However, things turned south for Hacker and he was eliminated at 5,000/10,000/1,000 by Casey Jarzabek. Casey opened to 25,000 in the cutoff and Hacker went all in on the button for 248,321 with {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}. The blinds folded and Jarzabek called with {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}. Two more queens hit the flop and they did the job for Jarzabek as Aaron Hacker finished in fifth place for $29,092.50.

Jarzabek held the chip lead for a little while, but faltered to finish in fourth. On his final hand, at 8,000/16,000/2,000, Jarzabek moved all in from the small blind for 274,639 with {j-Spades}{7-Diamonds} and was called by Masterhp in the big blind, who showed {a-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}.

Three-handed play lasted for two levels before Masterhp finished in third place for $49,565.

At this point, Jeff "jpapola" Papola held a 3:1 chip lead over Ben "1Mastermind" Chen. However, when Chen's {a-Hearts}{9-Clubs} held up against Papola's {k-Hearts}{q-Spades}, they decided to evenly chop with the winner sending the difference to the runner-up. They went all in the next hand and Jeff "jpapola" Papola officially notched the victory.
