0
Lev Gottlieb walked away from Tuesday's GGPoker Spring Festival with a pair of wins and more than $900,000 in earnings.

The GGPoker Spring Festival is only into Day 3, but there’s already a Series Most Valuable Player frontrunner. Lev Gottlieb, who won a World Series of Poker bracelet last summer on GGPoker, took down a pair of $10,000 buy-in events on Tuesday, including the $10,300 Super MILLION$, for more than $900,000 in earnings.

Over the past 18 months, the Super MILLION$ on GGPoker has become a marquee online poker event with some of poker’s best players duking it out each week for their share of $2 million in prize money. On Tuesday, Gottlieb topped the super-sized 312-entry field in Event #5-H ($10,300 Super MILLION$) to win $586,075.23. Runner-up Pedro Garagnani was left to console himself with $451,925.51 while third place went to ‘LUCKuHARD‘ for $348,482.24.

At the same time, Gottlieb was working his way through 140 other players in Event #15-H ($10,300 Super Tuesday), including runner-up Joao Vieira and third place finisher Timothy Adams, to add another $320,728.78 to his haul for the day. Vieira, who made a couple of podium appearances on Tuesday, won $240,512.62, while Adams earned $180,359.04 for his performance.

The third and final five-figure buy-in event on the day, Event #15-H ($25,500 Super High Roller), drew 85 runners for a $2,125,000 prize pool. Ottomar Ladva, an Estonian chess grandmaster, beat all of them to win $446,446.20. This is Ladva’s second high-profile poker win this year. In February, he defeated Justin Bonomo heads up to take down the partypoker MILLIONS Online $25,000 Super High Roller. This time around, Marius Gierse was cast as the runner-up, earning $435,789.71 in the process and Juan Dominguez finished in third for $301,474.56.

All of that managed to overshadow another win for one of the best online poker players in the world. Niklas Astedt beat Shyngis Satubayev heads up to win Event #14-H ($1,050 PLO-NL Bounty) to win $39,974.81. Satubayev, who won a GGPoker Spring Festival event on Monday, earned $20,121.60 for falling one spot short of a second title. Vieira picked up an additional $16,832.17 for his third-place result.

Other players who found themselves standing tall at the end of a GGSF High event on Tuesday were ‘sisu‘ (Event #11-H), ‘kazanova2020‘ (Event #13-H), and Pulkit Goyal (Event #17-H).
