Parker "tonkaaaa" Talbot wins the tournament for $261,489

It would take almost four hours before Parker "tonkaaaa" Talbot took the tournament win in the 2020 PokerStars Stadium Series Freezeout Weekly Final - High: $2,100 for $261,489 by defeating the Day 2 chip leader "VladTheSlaye" heads-up[/b]. The tournament attracted 768 players to the event which originally had a prize pool guarantee of $1,500,000 but ended tallying to $1,536,000 in total.

Talbot has over $4 million in cashes and even chopped a Sunday Million back in 2019 for $124.114 and finished in second place but can now add an online PokerStars title to his already impressive resumé by claiming his biggest cash here today.

PokerNews spoke to Talbot after his win: "Yessss I got this. As all poker players say, I was very due!"

When the public found out that Talbot had made the final table, they wondered if he would make a return to Twitch to stream but he didn't.

But you read it here first as Talbot said: 'I will stream this week. On Friday."

So make sure to go and check that out when he turns the stream back on for at least one day and who knows, he might consider sticking with it again.

The final table featured many winners though. "VladTheSlaye" ran deep in SCOOP events, Philip "Grindation" McAllister won a WCOOP in 2017, Alexandru "alexxt7" Farcasanu, 2014 EPT Barcelona champion Andre "Dönig" Lettau, two-time Sunday Million winner "thx4urm0n3y", 2010 EPT Copenhagen champion Anton "Bomber&Granater" Wigg, "LeslieGroves", and Sunday Million winner "losero88".

From Nine to Four Players

"losero88" started the day as the short stack and even though they managed to triple up at the start of the day, about an hour later, they busted in ninth place as they were outkicked by Farcasanu. Things then started speeding up. Only a few hands later, "LeslieGroves" lost all their chips to Talbot who flopped a set of queens. Wigg was next to go when he got all his chips in with ace-ten against the nines of "VladTheSlaye".

"thx4urm0n3y" then fell in sixth place to "VladTheSlaye" with the lower kicker. Five handed play would last 40 minutes before Lettau was let go when he got it all in with king-ten against the ace-nine of McAllister. "VladTheSlaye" continued to build their chip lead and closed in on 50 million in chips when they bluffed Talbot with ace-jack on the nine-five-trey-queen-queen board. Talbot folded king-nine when "VladTheSlaye" put him all-in.

The Race to Heads-Up

Farcasanu left the final table in fourth place when he ran his eights into the queens of Talbot but the latter remained the shortest stack going into three-handed play. But a straight over straight for Talbot got him closer to "VladTheSlaye" and even took the chip lead for a while. McAllister bowed out in third place when he called the four-bet shove of Talbot with ace-jack. The ace-king of Talbot found another king on the flop to connect with to get the tournament to the heads-up stage.

The Heads-Up Battle

Even though "VladTheSlaye" had an almost 2:1 chip lead, Talbot turned trips to get the stacks back to even, then got paid with the overpair of kings to leave "VladTheSlaye" behind with just over 30 big blinds. It was a downwards spiral for the Ukrainian player who eventually three-bet shoved his last 15 big blinds in with king-queen. Talbot held nines and flopped a set. "VladTheSlaye" picked up a straight draw but bricked the turn and river for the tournament to end with a Canadian win.
