The winner, Benjamin 'Kolemoen' Pfannstiel from Germany, fought his way through several stages of competition, and faced the seven best players in the world to come out on top. As the winner, he earned nearly half the $250,000 prize pool, with the rest of it being broken down between the other seven players as follows:
