Default Trouble Removing Old Kitchen Faucet

Tried a couple of hours trying to remove the old leaky faucet, removed all water supply lines as well as the spray.

Does not seem to have nuts and bolts holding the base, passed the step that needed an Allen wrench to remove the adapter, but got held up in this step, now only the base is still attached with the counter top, anyone can shed some lights on how can I remove this sucker?

Take another look under the sink, there should be a large nut holding the base to the counter top.

Someone should be along shortly with a picture of a basin wrench, which is almost a necessity for removing the nut underneath.
