Many congratulations to all the guys who cashed in this huge tournament and well done to Manuel for winning the whole thing. I think that it was the right thing to do for these two to make a deal at the end of what must have been a gruelling and exhausting tournament

It was a first for online poker with a prize like that.
They underwent a deal, which was basically the best thing to do with all that money
on the table. The difference was so small, and with that amount of money to win,
i doubt that any of the two would care to get the title Smile
Interesting thing also that it had more than double re entries from the initial buy ins.

This tournament has surpassed the Pokerstars record with a huge difference, almost double.
It is true that they had many satellite tournaments in almost one year and Party Poker have managed not to lose money.
Places 1 and 4 have names of Spaniards or South Americans.
Maybe they are not dutch citizens, but they are in the Netherlands and they won a lot of money.
The other big poker rooms need to make big tournaments with millions dollars, to awaken interest. Blink

Seems to me that Malta and Canada became a gamblers paradise for ex-pats who's former countries have no option to join up online outlets within their country's restrictive/licensing practices. Good on these guys though, congrats to them.

I was pretty surprised that they met the 2 million guarantee in a 10,000$ buy-in online event. They sure must have handed a lot of satellite tickets, and I doubt many people paid the whole 10,000$ to play. It must be pretty awesome to play in a high roller like this, but at the same time I'm sure you must be really gun shy with that kind of money involved. Like what do you do when someone 4bets your AKs Blink

Um, what are you saying? This was not a 10k buyin event - that is the WSOP Main Event as far as I know - the buyin at this one was 'only' $5300 (the min. payout in the ITM was 10k) ... Nevertheless it was an impressive achievement to reach this many players on an event like this.
