Germany’s “pappadogg” emerged victorious from the PokerStars Sunday 500 after besting a star-studded final table that would not have looked out of place in a tournament of ten times the $530 buy-in.

First to bust from the final table was the former World Series of Poker Main Event champion Martin Jacobson, who collected $3,716. Jacobson was followed to the rail by the United Kingdom’s “Kashmir_uzi” and Brazil’s “MrVibora”.

The Netherlands’ Joris “BillLewinsky” Ruijs fell in sixth-place before Sam Grafton fell in fifth-place. The talented Canadian Sebastian Sikorski, known as “p0cket00,” crashed out in fourth-place and the UK’s “OLDWOLF133” exited in third-place to send the tournament into the heads-up stage.

Matthew “mjw006” Wakeman, an Australian now living in Canada, and Germany’s “pappadogg” struck a deal to make the payouts more shallow. Wakeman collected $37,434 for his second-place finish, almost $5,000 more than the original payout. This left pappadogg to bank $39,851 and the title of champion.
