After a marathon heads-up battle, Grant Levy becomes the first Australian to win AUD$1,000,000 on home soil and keeps the APPT Grand Final trophy firmly in the tournament's home town of Sydney, Australia.

Levy has now elevated himself to one of Australia's premier tournament poker players with his impressive recent form including a 3rd place finish at the PokerNews Cup Main Event as well as multiple online tournament victories at PokerStars.

Levy overcame the tremendous fight of 2nd place finisher Jeremiah Vinsant who played a fantastic tournament and collects AUD$621,540 for his efforts.

Levy also now earns the right to win even more cash when he will be invited to take a place in the special charity sit & go event held here tomorrow, that will feature all APPT event winners as well as PokerStars professionals Greg Raymer, Chris Moneymaker and Joe Hachem.

And with that, our coverage of the PokerStars.net APPT Sydney Grand Final is complete. Congratulations to PokerStars, Star City and the entire APPT crew for a fantastic event. Until we meet again, good night and good luck!

The button is with Grant Levy and he raises it up pre-flop to 300,000 and Jermiah Vinsant makes the call.

The flop brings {6-Hearts}{3-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}. Levy bets 400,000, Vinsant re-raises all in and Levy insta-calls!

Levy shows {Q-Spades}{6-Spades} for a flopped two pair and has Vinsant in deep trouble with his {Q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}.

The turn is the {6-Diamonds} and the crowd erupts as Levy makes a full house, leaving Vinsant drawing to nothing but another queen for a chopped pot. The river is the {A-Hearts} and Grant Levy wins the APPT Sydney Grand Final!
