* Deal between top two finishers
The final table was set with the elimination of Cockers. He finished 10th for $65,250. Brazil’s Nigelsnuts collected $88,528 for his 9th position which assured the other eight players at least $120, 108. Next on the elimination count was Begines1 who lost to Blackbeaty and earned $120,108 for his eighth place. Seventh place favored Ajjapasia and earned him $165,955.

EdilsonRTJ from Brazil was the table’s next casualty and he lost to Peauker123. EdilsonRTJ secured the fifth position and earned $299,952.

ChavesVila was short-stacked and he was looking for a possible deal, but it was not his day. Blackbeaty pushed from the small blind with pocket sevens, and ChavesVila called with pocket nines for his 6.5 big blinds.
The Final Hand
Blackbeaty had more than 1.5 times the chips as JanRas1983 in the heads-up. Both players played a hand before looking into any potential deal. The negotiations were fruitful and the play resumed almost instantly.
The final hand happened during the 5,000,000/10,000,000/1,250,000 level. Blackbeaty then raised to 22,000,000 which was called. JanRas1983 made a quick move with a three-six-six flop, and then Blackbeaty elevated to 55,000,000. The German player called when the opponent clicked it back to 110,000,000. When JanRas1983 received a ten on the turn, he bet 30,000,000 into the 266,500,000 pot, Blackbeaty called. JanRas1983 went for a 163,250,002 bet, leaving himself 55,820 behind when the river was four. Blackbeaty set the other player for his remaining ships, in the next move, which was called. JanRas1983 sowed five-three but was dominated by the Blackbeaty’s jack-six.
