Phil Mighall secured by far the largest prize of his career when he took down the $10,300 buy-in WPT World Online Championships Main Event at partypoker for a massive $1,550,298. The British superstar came out on top of a 1,011-strong field to bank his first seven-figure haul, entry to the next WPT Tournament of Champions, and a place in the exclusive Champions Club.
Mighall held a 124,600,000 to 75,200,000 chip advantage going into heads-up but Mulder fought back and claimed the lead for himself. Mighall reclaimed the lead after passively playing king-queen and rivering trips, which were paid off by Mulder and his pocket sixes.
The final hand started with a raise from Mulder holding pocket aces and a three-bet with the lowly ten-seven from Mighall. Mulder called and flopped top set. Mighall fired a continuation bet and was called. The turn improved Mighall to an unlikely straight and he moved all-in, a bet that Mulder quickly called. The river was a brick, Mulder busted, and Mighall became the latest partypoker millionaire.
