The participants played deep stacked no-limit hold'em. In total, the tournament collected 959, which resulted in a $431 550 prize pool.

We recall that the tournament was carried out in a turbo format, so the poker players didn't have much time to take decisions. The final table, for example, lasted only 60 minutes: it all happened so fast.
Bryan Piccioli was one of the chip leaders. He played well, putting pressure on shorter-stacked opponents. As a result, Bryan reached the heads-up to measure swords with Dan Sindelar. In the last hand of the tournament, Dan shoved with 10-8 and was called by Bryan holding A-K. A few seconds, and the new WSOP Online champion’s name became known.
