A total prize pool of over $2.6 million was created a huge chunk of this prize pool went to Venezuela's Giuseppe Iadisernia, who won a career-best $845,000 (~INR 6.11 crore) for shipping the tournament.
Prior to this, Iadisernia didn't have much of a poker CV to brag about, with just about two live cashes and a total of around $220k in live winnings to his name. Here however, he did brilliantly to cash such a big amount, beating the experienced USA poker pro Sean Winter in heads-up, who has over $8 million in live poker winnings.
