By the time the final table was reached, the least amount of money anyone would be taking home was $9,498, which is what Mexico’s “Regadeitor” collected for their ninth-place finish.

Next to fall was “deivid29”, one of four British players to reach the Sunday Million’s final table. He was followed to the sidelines by the 2012 WCOOP Player of the Year Mikal “mikal12345” Blomlie, before a double elimination claimed the tournament lives of Switzerland’s “Therealkuch” and “knockoutian.”

"ad144" min-raised with a pair of kings, Therealkuch three-bet all-in with ace-ten of clubs, knockoutian four-bet all-in from the small blind with pocket queens, and ad144 called to put two players at risk of elimination. The board ran out ten-high and the final table lost two players.

Vitor “VitinhO Dzi” Dzivielevski crashed out in fourth place before Bulgaria’s “JAGUARRRRRR” exited in third place to leave two Brits fighting for the title — ad144 and “CrownUpGay.”

The heads-up duo agreed to a deal that left $20,000 in play for the eventual champion. That champion was decided after an exciting one-on-one battle which ended with "ad144"’s pair of red kings holding against the ten-seven of CrownUpGay.
