Hitting the rail first was Deeeeeb, at the 2,000/4,000/400 level. Bruno “Bruno GT” Gonzalez raised to 10,550 in middle position and Deeeeeb went all in for just 15,312 total. MutaPierda then re-raised all in for 99,510 on the button, prompting a fold from Bruno GT. MutaPierda tabled {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs} to Deeeeeb’s {A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds} and the board fell {3-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{9-Spades}. Deeeeeb’s tournament was over in ninth place for $6,230. Joe “Dyzalot” Morneau was felted shortly thereafter. Jonathan “xxjondxx” Delong opened to 9,800 under the gun and Morneau shoved for 74,127 in middle position. It folded back to Delong who called with {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}, leading Morneau’s {K-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}. The board ran out {2-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{3-Spades} as Joe “Dyzalot” Morneau was out in eighth place for $8,900.

Bruno “Bruno GT” Gonzalez Terra exited at 3,000/6,000/600. He raised to 15,250 in the hijack, but was re-raised all in by Jonathan Delong on the button. Bruno GT called all in for 90,016 with {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs} and was racing against Delong’s {Q-Clubs}{Q-Spades}. The board rolled out {3-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{7-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} as Bruno GT exited in seventh place for $12,460. Delong eliminated MutaPierda later in the same level. Delong shoved from the small blind and MutaPierda called all in for 108,041 out of the big blind with {A-Diamonds}{J-Spades}, slightly leading Delong’s {K-Spades}{Q-Clubs}. However, the board came {2-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{K-Hearts} and MutaPierda left in sixth place for $16,020.

At 4,000/8,000/800, Scott “icallseat3” Sitron was eliminated by Chris “Bushman” Bush. In the small blind Bush raised to 19,444 and Sitron then went all in for 158,362. Bush called instantly with {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts} and had Sitron’s {3-Spades}{3-Clubs} in bad shape. The community cards came {A-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{5-Spades}{K-Diamonds} as Scott “icallseat3” Sitron exited in fifth place for $20,470. ArcticAces00 did not last past 5,000/10,000/1,000 after a hand with Jonathan “xxjondxx” Delong. ArcticAces00 was way ahead with {K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs} against Delong’s {Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts}, but the board ran out {J-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} as Delong spiked the two-outer on the river to bust ArcticAces00 in fourth place for $29,204.

Daniel “amichaiKK” Makowsky departed in third place after being blinded down to nearly nothing. He got it in with {K-Hearts}{5-Clubs} and was called by both Bush and Delong. However, the board came {8-Spades}{2-Spades}{A-Hearts}{10-Spades}{J-Hearts} as Bush tabled {8-Clubs}{6-Clubs} to oust Makowsky, who collected $39,160. Heads-up play then began with the following chip counts:

Chris “Bushman” Bush — 616,620
Jonathan “xxjondxx” Delong — 451,380

At 6,000/12,000/1,200, Delong won a key hand en route to taking down the tournament. Bush raised to 28,444 and Delong called, bringing a flop of {A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}. Delong checked to Bush, who bet 31,444, but Delong raised to 108,000. Bush thought momentarily before raising again, this time to 420,000. Delong called all in for his remaining 301,288 with {9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} and was drawing against Bush’s {J-Clubs}{J-Spades}. The turn was the {Q-Spades} and changed nothing, but the {2-Diamonds} landed on the river and Delong made his flush. The tourney ended one hand later when Delong raised enough to cover Bush. Bush called all in for 176,936 with {A-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} and faced Delong’s {K-Spades}{10-Diamonds}. The board came {10-Clubs}{3-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} as Bush came up just short, finishing in second place for $52,510. Delong’s virtual paycheck for winning the PokerStars Super Tuesday was for $69,420.

Rplrplft shoved from the button for 43,818 and Zach “HustlerGrune” Gruneberg called out of the big blind with {Q-Hearts}{9-Spades}, which trailed rplrplft’s {A-Spades}{2-Diamonds}. Gruneberg made trips, though, on the {9-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{2-Spades}{K-Hearts}{9-Clubs} board, to eliminate rplrplft in ninth place for $6,540. Mario “Pwnasaurus” Silvestri departed at 3,000/6,000/750, after moving all in for his last 69,364 holding {9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}, and being called by AA_GAMBIT in the big blind with {A-Spades}{K-Clubs}. The board ran out {6-Spades}{K-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{A-Clubs} and Silvestri was out in eighth place for $8,175.

Mike “SPIN101” Spinasanta’s last hand occurred when he ran {A-Spades}{9-Clubs} into 21boo21’s {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts}. No ace found the table as Spinasanta collected $10,627.50 for seventh place. Gruneberg fell in the next level, 4,000/8,000/1,000. Aditya “Intervention” Agarwal shoved from the button with a bigger stack than the blinds and Gruneberg called all in for 148,668 from the small with {A-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}, having Agarwal’s {K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} dominated. Unfortunately for Gruneberg, the board rolled out {7-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{4-Spades}{K-Spades} and he was out in sixth place for $16,350.

AA_GAMBIT called and tabled {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}. The board rolled out {6-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{8-Spades}{K-Clubs} as 21boo21 was sent away in fourth place for $30,247.50. AA_GAMBIT, though, busted in the next level (6,000/12,000/1,500). After AA_GAMBIT raised to 27,899 in the small blind, Aditya Agarwal shoved with the bigger stack from big blind. Into the tank went AA_GAMBIT, eventually opting to call with {A-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}. Agarwal tabled {2-Hearts}{2-Spades} and it was off to the races. The flop came {6-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{10-Hearts} as Agarwal seized the lead with the set and held on to oust AA_GAMBIT, who collected $39,240 for third.

Heads-up play began with Agarwal holding about a 2:1 chip lead on Ryan, but Ryan came back and won the tournament at 10,000/20,000/2,500. On the final hand Ryan raised to 350,000 and Agarwal called all in with {A-Clubs}{J-Spades}, having Ryan’s {J-Hearts}{9-Spades} dominated. However, the board ran out {2-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} as Ryan made two pair to eliminate Aditya “Intervention” Agarwal in second place for $52,320. Ryan’s win in the Full Tilt $1K Monday was worth $81,750.
