Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner!
After 17 hours of gruelling play, Matthew Ephraums has emerged the victor over Brendan Edmonds, taking home the lion's share of the prize pool and the coveted championship gold ring.
Ephraums will also go down in history of conquering the largest Australian championship poker tournament field in history - a remarkable achievement for him and for Crown Casino, which shows just how much their hard work and dedication to the game is being rewarded.
Congratulations Matthew, your win is thoroughly deserved and also kudos to Brendan for your efforts - we hope to see you both back in the Crown Poker Room soon.
Of course, it goes without saying that this is the end of the event - we hope you enjoyed our coverage - but we've got plenty more action coming your way!
