A little later, in sixth place, another well-known poker pro Sam Greenwood finished his performance in the event. For such a result, Sam received a payout of $123 000.
Mikita Badziakouski closed the top five. The guy showed good poker play, but after several unsuccessful hands, Badziakouski left the tournament in fifth place that brought him $160 000.
Famous Brazilian player Yuri Dzivielevski is often among the finalists of major online poker tournaments. This time, the player showed a nice run, but during a 4-handed play was eliminated by the future runner-up Wiktor Malinowski, taking fourth place and $207 000 in prize money.

Austrian player with the “Ferrariman” nickname entered the Super Million$ final table with the sixth stack. The player managed to improve their position in the tournament and showed a good game in the final.
In the final heads-up, the Austrian was opposed by the seasoned poker pro Wiktor Malinowski. It should be noted that Ferrariman qualified for the tournament through a $ 1 000 satellite.
The Austrian played almost the entire final table very tight, but towards the middle of the final, the player changed their strategy, which paid off for him. In the last hand of the event, Malinowski moved all-in holding 7-7 and was called by Ferrariman who had a pocket pair of queens.
The queens turned out to be stronger than sevens and brought victory to "Ferraiman", who turned a thousand dollars into $453 000. Wiktor Malinowski became a runner-up, for which he received $349 000.
