The final four players in the Dec. 17 PokerStars.com Sunday Million divvied up the pot according to their chips, but pokerno saw the most cash after winning the remaining $30,000 in prize money.
Rumblings of a deal began when the final table was whittled down to five players. After knocking out the fifth competitor, Vinny88, the four remaining players talked shop.
They agreed to a by-the-chips split of the pot, with two of the players adding $5,000 to top up jkopp984's stack. That left $30,000 up for grabs.

The final table results are as follows:
