The partypoker MILLION ended in a three-way deal that included Team Online’s Travis “DramaticDegen” Darroch. A field of 4,472 left a substantial overlay for partypoker, but the 600 players who reached the money places didn’t care as they banked some additional value.

They were joined on the rail by “Nicolasmajda” and “eddyrock” who walked away with $20,890 and $30,750 respectively. Leonardo “ingracia_dinha” Boff busted in fourth place for $44,740 and his exit resulted in the final three players striking a deal to end the tournament.

Third-place went to Darroch who collected $106,308, an incredible sum considering he won his place in the $1 million guaranteed event from a $22 satellite. Second place and $107,915 went to “theteachery” leaving “vem kikando” to secure the $114,876 first-place prize.
