Barry Greenstein was the last member of Team PokerStars Pro left standing and he finished 351st to cash for about $1,000.
As usual there were plenty of other events on Sunday for players who didn't want to take part in the $215 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em Sunday Million.
EPT London High Rollers winner Jason Mercier, who plays online as treysfull21, added to his considerable success by winning the $215 Omaha Hi-Lo event for $6,300. 2008 has been a busy year for Mercier as he won two EPT events, cashed three times at the WSOP and had numerous online victories.
Also pulling off a victory was Halifax, Canada native Owen "ocrowe" Crowe. He won the popular $215+R event for a cool $41,000 by beating ra1se heads-up. Crowe is a well-known online player who won the Sunday Million a few years ago and came in 15th at the 2008 Main Event this year.
