In addition to the $10,000 buy-in Main Event, a $100,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em Super High Roller event was played during WPT Five Diamond at Bellagio.

A total of 22 entries were made in the Super High Roller, that created a prize pool of $2,167,000. It was a tough tournament for fourth-place finisher, Jean-Noel Thorel, since only three players made the money.

After the money-bubble bursted, Roger Sippl was eliminated in third place ($433,400) and the heads-up play between Erik Seidel and Brian "tsarrast" Rast could began.

Eventually, Rast was able to outlast Erik Seidel heads-up for the title. Rast earned $1,083,500 for his win, while Seidel took home $650,100.

Rast has now almost $6 million in live tournament earnings, while Erik Seidel has over $19 million.

Jens "Jeans89" Kyllönen's own conclusion

After F-Secure blogged about the Jens "Jeans89" Kyllönen incident,  Kyllönen decided to come forward with his own conclusion early today.

Kyllönen has posted his long conclusion to 2+2 poker forum, which you can read from here. As you can see from the quote below, Kyllönen is not happy how PokerStars has handled the case:

"And here we are. With the 'Sadly, it is unlikely that we will ever get any kind of official response or resolution to your case.' and still so many interested in the case I feel I have no choice but to tell you my side of the story. I welcome Pokerstars in this thread to tell their side of the story and correct any flaws I might have written. I would also like to thank people for retweeting my tweet about this incident.

When googling 'Hotel arts barcelona' my 2+2 thread comes up as the seventh site, after two of the hotels own websites, two tripadvisor-sites and two online hotel-booking sites. I think we really managed to make a difference and hurt the hotels business a bit which I think is very well deserved.

To this day I still have zero proof any sort of authorities have seen this case, so if you end up in a similar situation, do not count on Pokerstars, contact the police directly. I however have absolutely no energy to do anything about the case anymore, I really just want to forget it. Let's hope the Egmont group has actually received a report, and that report contains everything it should."
