Coming into the final table as the short-stack, Anthony Marenko was the first elimination. He takes home AU$15,815 in his first Aussie Millions cash since cashing the Main Event back in 2012.
Dutch player Joep Raemaekers added a second cash of this year's Aussie Millions, finishing eighth for AU$18,890 before Australian Martin 'The Doc' Comer added the sixth of his career earning AU$21,965 for his efforts despite coming into the day second in chips.
Luke Martinelli has two second-place finishes in Aussie Millions side events before, but wouldn't be adding to it today finishing sixth for AU$27,585.
Start-of-day chip leader Joyce still lead five-handed, with Bjorn Ostby the short stack. He would bust next for AU$35,140.
Indian Jayan Prasad cashed in fourth for the best cash of his career, winning AU$52,710. Prasad cashed in the Opening Event at this year's Aussie Millions and now has a second cash in the southern hemisphere's most prestigious poker tournament.
Another player who cashed in the Opening Event earlier this festival was Joshua Abady who was next to go, winning AU$70,280 for the best cash of his career. This eclipsed a 33rd place in last year's Main Event for which he earned himself AU$35,000.
Heads-up a deal was done between start-of-day chip leader Toby Joyce and Vincent Huang which saw Joyce take home the lion's share of the prize pool. But eventually it as Huang who took down the tournament, the prize money and the coveted ANTON Championship ring.
