A rare six-handed deal took place in the Sunday Million this week, guaranteeing each of the final six players at least $76,000. The final three players entered the final table as the three biggest stacks, but it was the shortest of the bunch, "franc1978685," who came out on top.

Heads-up with "conjunk," the near-even stacks went into the middle on an {A-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} flop. The {A-Spades}{K-Hearts} of "franc1978685" bested "conjunk's" {10-Spades}{5-Clubs} when the {Q-Hearts} turn and {8-Diamonds} river fell. That left "conjunk" with two big blinds, and the tournament ended on the next hand.
