In total, 65 players entered the prize zone. The minimum payout reached the mark of $20 000. The famous German poker player Rainer Kempe didn't manage to get to the final table of the tournament and he earned $35 000 for the 16th place.

Silva started to play in a heads-up with an advantage in stack. Colonese began to play “all-in or fold”, so Silva decided to set a trap for him. Pablo limped with pocket jacks, and then he quickly called the opponent's push with 8-6o. Silva hit a full on the flop and became the winner of MILLIONS South America ME.

This victory became the largest one in Pablo’s poker career. Prior to this tournament, his biggest prize money was $78 100 for the 4th place in $2 380 high roller tournament at EPT 2019 in Monte Carlo.
