Many congratulations to Brian Altman on winning this event and the first prize of $723,008. What an incredible last hand as well, a flopped flush versus a set, great way to end any tournament

Two hours of heads up must be terrible for your psych though - heck even two hours of doing anything in a monoton way is really bad for you but something not straight with this last hand.

congrats
that is lot of money
usually playing heads up , a pair or 2 pair is good enough for the win
but to see flush vs set and only 2 players competing .. that is something
i would say pokerstars is rigged but this wasnt on pokerstars Big Smile
