As the battle continued, there was a considerable amount of chatting going on at this final table with tEh_R3aLde4L backing up his aggressive play with chatter. This was a heated final table as all the players were playing aggressively as players raised, re-raised, and went all in quite a bit during the final.

At one point, tEh_R3aLde4L was down to around 2 million chips with $250K/$500K blinds and a $50K ante. tEh_R3aLde4L eventually won some of the chips back with some aggressive all ins against jlost88.

Final Hand

The final 3 players were Bolikk, jlost88, and tEh_R3aLde4L. As jlost88 was eliminated, the final hand came down to Bolikk and tEh_R3aLde4L, with tEh_R3aLde4L leading the chip count.

Bolikk: A6o

tEh_R3aLde4L: K3o

The flop came and Bolikk had a gutshot straight draw along with his Ace leading at the time. The turn was a King and tEh_R3aLde4L had a pair of Kings. Bolikk needed an Ace or 7 on the river but as the river card was turned over, Bolikk had only a pair of 6′s to tEh_R3aLde4L’s pair of Kings.

tEh_R3aLde4L won the PokerStars Sunday Million earning $121,688.14 for first place. Bolikk still ended up taking home $112,000 for the second place finish.
