In that hand #50, ‘ModusPonen7’ paired his ten – but ‘ifipushud325’ hit a set of eights on a board of [8d Th 6s Qs 3h].

Hand #66 was the final hand of the tournament, when ‘ifipushud325’ moved all-in with [Qc Td] and was called by ModusPonen7’s [Ac Kd]. ‘ifipushud325’ made a pair of queens on a board of [Jh 4h 6s Qs 8d], and with that, became poker’s newest millionaire, and the sixth new millionaire in the last week.
