Out of a field of 208 entries in Event H-75: $25,500 Sunday 5 Million, Badziakouski claimed the lion's share of the $5.2 million prize pool and walked away with the top prize of $1,105,679.

Badziakouski earned the victory in commanding style after eliminating six of the eight finalists. The other two casualties were caused by the chip leader before the start of the final table Elio Fox, who had to settle for 4th place. Matthew Hyman and Michel Dattani battled for the big pay jump for second place and Dattani did so successfully to claim the consolation prize of $829,142.
