One hundred players qualified online (for only $22) to the Finals aboard the ship (which included accommodations for two) while 39 bought their way in for $8,000 a pop.
In terms of poker drama, it doesn't get any better than this: the final came down to superstar and former World Champion, Phil Hellmuth, poker veteran Kathy Liebert and online qualifier, Berj Kacherian (a database administrator from Los Angeles, California) playing for a cool $1,000,000.
The most likely favorite, Phil, finished third. The lead seesawed back and forth nine times before Liebert finally won.
