A guarantee-busting field of 5,837 took to the PokerStars virtual felt for this weekend’s Sunday Million, ensuring $1,167,400 was distributed among the top 1,052 finishers. Those reaching the money places netted at least $335 while those who navigated their way to the nine-handed final table banked at least $9,271.

Austria’s “icebearr” picked up the latter when they busted in ninth-place, locking up a five-figure score for the remaining eight players. Canadian “rmullen” saw their tournament end in eighth-place, a finish worth $13,211. They were followed to the rail by Sech “T0X16-” Zehn, Enrico “WhaTisL0v3” Camosci, and “BuddyAces2” to leave only four players in the hunt for the title.

Fourth-place and a cool $54,472 went to Brazil’s Luan “Pseudo Fruto” Felipe before “Rus-us8” of Russia crashed out in third-place for a bankroll-boosting $77,622 prize. This left Talbot and PokerDave476 to play heads-up for the title and the not so small matter of a $47,000 pay jump.

Second-place was meant to pay $110,609 but a deal between Talbot and PokerDave476 saw both players now receive $124,114 with $20,000 left for the eventual champion. Unfortunately for Talbot, PokerDave476 got their hands on the additional $20,000 after eliminating Talbot in second-place, but it was still a remarkable result for Talbot who now has more than $4.2 million in online cashes.
