Saliba was knocked out of the event by Thomas Drivas: the girl went all-in with a pair of queens but, to her misfortune, the opponent showed aces. For the fourth place, the 888poker representative received $308 888 in prize money, which is more than in her entire career.

After a few hands, Drivas became a loser himself and left the tournament getting $409 888. Then the heads-up between Mark Radoja and Rick Alvarado started. Mark’s A-10 failed against Rick’s A-4 since the river brought the American another 4. Rick Alvarado received $888 888 for finishing first and the gold bracelet he dreamed of so long.

«To be honest, I never really looked at the pay jumps too much. After I doubled up at the start of the day, I was just focused on that number one, going for the first place», the winner said.
