The final table action commenced at 6:00 p.m. GMT on March 15 and it did not take long for the first finalist to bust. Elio Fox only had 6.9 big blinds at the start of play, so it was unsurprising that it was he who finished in ninth place. Fox had increased his stack to 10 big blind when he open-shoved with king-jack of clubs from under the gun. Unfortunately for Fox, Haxton woke up with ace-queen of clubs in the big blind, and made the easy call. Both players improved to a flush by the river, but Haxton held the nut flush.
Russia’s “spaise411” lasted another ten minutes before falling at the hands of Haxton. It was Haxton who started the preflop betting with a raise to 125,000 from the cutoff. Haxont then called when spaise411 three-bet all-in for 324,232. It was ace-eight for Haxton and king-queen of spades for the Russian. Haxton improved to a pair of eights on the river.
Matas “NoWeyyy” Cikinas busted in seventh-place and collected the tournament’s last five-figure prize. Cikinas was terminated after he open-shoved for 892,738 from the small blind with ace-jack. Sung Joo “ArtePokerTV” Hyun, a former Super MILLION$ champion, snap-called in the big blind with pocket jacks. Cikinas flopped a gutshot straight draw but failed to find any of his outs on the turn nor river.
Sixth-place and $100,596 went to Nikita “VSMPZD” Kuznetsov. Hyun limped in on the button with what turned out to be ace-ten. He then quickly called when Kuznetsov, from the big blind, moved all-in for 11 big blinds with queen-jack. Kuznetsov floped a jack but Hyun paired his ace. Hyun’s hand remained true and the final table lost another player.
Mark Radoja’s wait to become a Super MILLION$ champion continued after Tyler “TheRayGuy” Cornell sent him to the showers in fifth-place. The action folded around to Cornell in the small blind, and he open-shoved with five-four of diamonds. Radoja, nursing a 7.5 big blind stack, called all-in with ace-trey of clubs. A four on the flop proved enough to end Radoja’s latest deep run.
Start-of-the-day chip leader, Michael Addamo, was the next player heading for the exits Addamo. Haxton open-shoved from the small blind for 17 big blinds effective, and Addamo called, and showed king-jack. Haxton could only muster the nine-eight but spiked a nine on the turn to eliminate the five-time Super MILLION$ champion.
Hyun lost ground on his other two opponents during three-handed play. He lost a large a large pot when he made a straight on the river only to run into the turned straight of Cornell. He was down to 7.5 big blinds when he played his final hand. Haxton min-raised to 200,000 with ten-nine and Hyun called with ten-nine in the big blind. The eight-high all-diamond flop saw Hyun check-call all-in when Haxton shoved. Hyun had the nine of diamonds in his hand, but Haxton the ten of diamonds. The ace of diamonds turn left Hyun drawing dead.

Haxton went into heads-up against Cornell with a near three-to-one chip advantage, and he got his hands on Cornell’s chips in a huge hand. It started with a raise to 288,000 from Haxton, a three-bet to 1,044,000 from Cornell, and a call from Haxton. Cornell led for 571,860 on the jack-queen-eight flop, which contained two spades. Haxton called. The nine of spades turn put a possible straight flush out there. Cornell check-called a 660,000 bet from Haxton. The jack of clubs completed the board and Cornell bet 744,000 into the 4,581,720 pot. Haxton responded with a raise to 6,813,720, which more than covered the 1,445,801 chips Cornell had behind. Cornell called and showed ace-queen with the ace of spades, but Haxton won the hand thanks to having queen-jack in the hole, which was now a full house.
