  World Largest Limit Hold'em Poker Tournament - Million V

Million V Tournament With Prize Pool Of 10 Million Dollars at Party Poker Room.

With a total prize pool of $7.43 million and 735 players, Party Poker's Million IV in 2005 really was anyone's to win when the cruise ship Oosterdam sailed from San Diego pier. However, on the final table, it all came down to two players and a calculating battle of youth versus maturity. Youth won out as Michael Gracz, a 24-year-old recent graduate of North Carolina State, outlasted 54-year-old rocket engineer David Minto of Alamogordo, New Mexico to claim the $1.5 million first prize. Minto had to console himself with the $1 million second place award.

Of the 735 players who took part in the world's largest Limit Texas Hold'em tournament, 668 qualified online at Party Poker room. These online qualifiers won their $10,200 buy-in to the finals and a cruise for two by winning preliminary online satellite tournaments with entries starting from $8. In addition to Gracz and Minto, more than 180 players cashed in on the massive prize pool.
