Soon the very aggressive Hungarian player, Sandor Demjan (who is the richest man in Hungary) went all-in as well: he raised to 62,000, Katchalov 3bet him to 185,000, Demján called. The flop came {#}8 {#}8 {#}2 . Katchalov cbet to 155,000, where Demján pushed all his 551,000 chips in. Katchalov insta-called.

Demján: {#}T {#}T
Katchalov: {#}J {#}J

Turn: {#}3
River: {#}9

Demján was eliminated at 6th place, so he must be angry dropping out just before the paid places.

He was followed by Humberto Brenes, Nick Schulman and Bryn Kenney, whose elimination brought about the heads-up between Daniel Negreanu and Eugene Katchalov:

Eugene Katchalov - 4.860.000
Daniel Negreanu - 4.670.000


Katchalov won notably more pots than the Canadian pro, and had considerable chiplead, however, Negreanu managed to double up showing better hands, which this time held out until the river.

The final hand came about at the 20th blind level (10,000/40,000/80,000), where Negreanu went pre-flop all-in, but this time around, he hasn't had that much luck:

Negreanu: {#}5 {#}5
Katchalov: {#}4 {#}4

Board: {#}A {#}T {#}8 {#}4 {#}2

Katchalov won the Super High Roller Trophy and the $1,500,000 with a set.
