You may have heard wealthy people classified as "old money" or "new money," but last week it was YungMoney209 who added some riches to his pockets by winning the UltimateBet Online Championship main event.

The final UBOC event kicked off on Sunday and had a guaranteed $1 million prize pool. The event drew more than 1,100 players to boost the prize pool up to $1,115,000, making it the most impressive online tournament in the online poker site's 10-year history, according to UltimateBet.

The biggest beneficiary of that prize pool was YungMoney209. It took more than 15 hours of play for YungMoney209 to work his way through the playing field and come out on top.

In the final hand, YungMoney209 turned a pair of fours into a winning hand against TheBubble1's king-high.

For the victory, YungMoney209 picks up $245,188.50, and TheBubble1 picks up $144,615.50 for second place.

The top 108 players in the tournament got paid, and MiddleMiss08 earned a $1,050 bounty for knocking out Phil Hellmuth as he played host to the championship event.

"Over the course of the last 10 days, UltimateBet paid out more than $2.5 million to online poker players in 22 unbelievable events," Hellmuth said. "This series was the epitome of epic for poker fans from all over the globe and our spectacular final championship event will be the talk of the online tables for months to come."

The 2009 UBOC kicked off Jan.9 and featured 22 guaranteed events spread over 10 days. There was close to $2.5 million in guaranteed prize pools total, including the $1 million main event.
