21:57 Europe/Stockholm April 7, 2009

Sunday's ChampionChip at bwin Poker featured yet another huge prize as it does each and every week -- $300,000 in prize money --, with a tough field of 1,352 runners turning out to take their crack at taking home the $58,500 that would go to the winner.

With a long day ahead of anyone that would survive to see the final table, early leaders included gjone1, GrampsGlenn, Tideleg, and YongSupremcy. When the final table was set, it was mg50024fc9f who was leading the way:

Seat 1: gatovopivo ($479,884 in chips)
Seat 2: jazzmags ($163,068 in chips)
Seat 3: RandomDonk99 ($332,720 in chips)
Seat 4: Seeded1 ($354,390 in chips)
Seat 5: FishGoesDeep ($150,040 in chips)
Seat 6: Slingwili ($367,388 in chips)
Seat 7: Zyber Bob ($112,710 in chips)
Seat 8: Emg50024fc9f ($668,250 in chips)
Seat 9: YongSupremcy ($176,173 in chips)
Seat 10: ale3333 ($575,377 in chips)

With the field narrowed down to five players, a new leader had emerged in the form of ale3333:

Seat 1: gatovopivo ($1,081,662 in chips)
Seat 2: jazzmags ($129,068 in chips)
Seat 5: FishGoesDeep ($172,580 in chips)
Seat 9: YongSupremcy ($290,146 in chips)
Seat 10: ale3333 ($1,706,544 in chips)

jazzmags would bow out in 5th ($12,000) when he shoved pre-flop with pocket queens, and got looked up by ale3333 and his pocket fives. Just when it looked like jazzmags would double up to stay alive, disaster (for him) struck, with ale3333 spiking a set of 5s on the turn to eliminate jazzmags.

YongSupremcy's day would end in 4th ($18,000), when he shoved pre-flop with J♦ 9♣ and gatovopivo looked him up with J♦ 9♣. The board blanked out and didn't help either player, with gatovopivo's A high good enough to take down the hand and send YongSupremcy to the rails.

FishGoesDeep's deep run would end in 3rd ($24,000), when he was on the wrong end of a battle of big aces. He was all-in pre-flop with A♦ J♣ but behind gatovopivo's A♥ K♦, which held to knock out FishGoesDeep and set up the following heads-up battle:

Seat 1: gatovopivo ($1,844,388 in chips)
Seat 10: ale3333 ($1,535,612 in chips)

gatovopivo would ultimately grind out the win to take down 1st prize ($58,500), with ale3333 collecting $37,200 for his runner-up finish.
