The final Tuesday in the GGPoker Spring Festival was a big one with seven different players walking away with High buy-in level titles and the lion’s share of more than $6 million in prize pools, but nobody shined brighter – and scored bigger – than Joakim Andersson.

Sweden’s Andersson showed no mercy as he topped the 1,089-entry field to win the GGPoker Spring Festival MILLION$ Main Event for $1,537,605.12. The $10,890,000 prize pool exceeded the $10 million guarantee and ensured that the eventual champion wasn’t going to be the only newly-minted millionaire. Runner-up Julian Stuer banked $1,185,655.13 for falling one spot short of the title. Coming in third place, Darrell Goh walked away with $914,265.78.

Sami Kelopuro won his fourth GGPoker Spring Festival title after outlasting 98 other entries in Event #84 ($25,500 Super High Roller) to win $572,003.82. Wei Zhao took the consolation prize of $40,969.69 as the runner-up while Isaac Haxton finished third for $339,952.82.

Canadians Michael Watson and Mark Radoja chopped up nearly $700,000 after outlasting 180 other entries in Event #83 ($10,300 Super Tuesday). Watson wound up with $361,957.15 and the title while Radoja added $333,213.42 to his bankroll for finishing in second. David Peters was left out of the chop discussion, but did take home $223,398.23 for a bronze medal performance.

Arsenii Malinov went bounty hunting in Event #82 ($2,100 Bounty) and came back with a GGSF title and $114,534.71. Runner-up ‘BIG HAI‘ earned $50,622.54 while Simon Lofberg picked up $68,983.15 and finished in third position.

Other players who wrapped up Tuesday with a GGSF High title included ‘77Storm77‘ (Event #79-H), ‘Schabi10‘ (Event #81-H), and Bernard Haider (Event #85-H).
