The winner at the end of the day was “stevenmadara” who took home the grand prize of $10,750 and to really top it off, a whopping $13,643 in bounty winnings, which was by far and away the largest bounty haul for any player.

“stevenmadara” was spotted as one of the top chip counts with about 50 players left and had an impressive elimination run to boost his bounty count. He entered the final table as chip leader and went on to eliminate three of the final table’s seven other players.

"Chips_Jammed" Eliminated in 2nd Place ($7,078)


"Chips_Jammed" had pulled pretty close to even in the chip counts after having been very low just a few minutes before. A large hand unfolded.

The flop was {3-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{8-Spades}. "Chips_Jammed" bet and was called by "stevenmadara". The turn was the {k-Diamonds}. "Chips_Jammed" bet again for about 1,700,000 and was called.

The river came the{6-Spades}. This time "stevenmadara" put the pressure on and bet enough to put "Chips_Jammed''s remaining stack of 4,847,00 at risk.

"Chips_jammed" thought about it for a long while, using a large portion of their time bank before calling.

"stevenmadara' turned over the {k-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for two-pair which was the winner over the {a-Clubs}{9-Hearts} and "Chips_Jammed" was eliminated in 2nd place.

Matt "Boozehound" Iles Eliminated in 4th Place ($4,300)


Matt "Boozehound" Iles moved all in preflop and was called by the bigger stack of "stevenmadara".

Iles was at risk holding the {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds} against the {k-Spades}{8-Spades}. The lead would not last long as the flop came {8-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{9-Spades} to hit the eight. The turn ws the {8-Hearts} to make matters worse and the {k-Diamonds} on the end just rubbed salt in the would of Iles who was eliminated in 4th place.
