Only the top six won a slice of the $1,425,000 prize pool, so spare a thought for the seventh. Stephen Chidwick. He burst the bubble and missed a min-cash of $102,281. This amount went to Timothy Adamswho was joined on the rail by Lev “LevMeAlone” Gottlieb and Anatoly Filatov. Those eliminated players saw $136,395 and $181,885 heading to their GGPoker accounts.
