Imagine winning a seat to the PokerStars Sunday Million in a $4.40 rebuy satellite then going on to finish first in a field of 6,269 players to bank a career-best score of $188,928.82. It would be an awesome feeling, right?

That is exactly what "Koby295" did on Sunday, writing his own poker fairytale. The German was one of four players involved in a deal towards the end of the $215 buy-in tournament, and then went on to outlast everyone to claim an additional $20,000 left from the discussions.

The other three players involved in the deal, in order of finishing position, were "mariusghet12" ($94,505.49), "ktm2502t" ($100,000), and Akos "Akkerx" Pasztor ($117,587.41).
