  1. Greek high-stakes pro Alexandros Theologis took down one of arguably the toughest fields of the 2021 GGPoker WSOP Online when he bested the 255-entry field of Event #21 ($25,000 Super High Roller Championship) to claim the $1,212,033 first-place prize and his first career World Series of Poker gold bracelet. Theologis, currently ranked #40 in the world (#1 in Greece), put on an impressive final table performance en route to a career-high online score. He entered the day third in chips but amassed a formidable chip lead that kept his tough competition, including Kahle Burns, Adrian Mateos, and Anatoly Filatov, from ever really closing the gap. The first elimination of the day arrived quickly when, with the blinds at 35,000/70,000, Timothy Nuter put in put in a raise of over 680,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="kh"], leaving himself just two big blind behind. Kahle Burns called from late position with the [poker card="8s"][poker card="8c"]. The [poker card="ah"][poker card="8s"][poker card="2d"] flop gave Nuter top pair, but it also brought Burns middle set. So, when Nuter open jammed for his final 140,000, Burns quickly called and his set held through the [poker card="9c"] turn and [poker card="jc"] river. Nuter ended in ninth place and picked up $151,503. The early bustouts continued when, with the blinds at 40,000/80,000 a short-stacked Adrian Mateos moved all-in from the button for just over 10 big blinds with the [poker card="ah"][poker card="th"] and Theologis, in the big blind, snap-called holding [poker card="qc"][poker card="qs"]. The flop came [poker card="8d"][poker card="7d"][poker card="3c"] keeping pocket queens well ahead, but offering Mateos some back door outs. The turn was the [poker card="ts"], bringing Mateos a pair, however the [poker card="7h"] river was no help to the three-time WSOP bracelet winner and Mateos was eliminated in eighth place for $196,476. On the very next hand, Rui Ferreira shipped his final 840,000 all-in from under the gun with his [poker card="ad"][poker card="jd"]. He was immediately called by next-to-act Wenjie Huang holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="kc"]. The rest of the table got out of the way and the flop came down [poker card="as"][poker card="th"][poker card="7c"], bringing both top pair, but leaving Ferriera dominated. The turn was the [poker card="qc"], giving the top-10 ranked Ferriera three outs to the gutshot straight, but the [poker card="3h"] was a miss and he bowed out in seventh place which was good for a $254,798 payday. During the same level, Huang opened his [poker card="8s"][poker card="8h"] from under the gun to 168,000, and Burns flat-called with the [poker card="kc"][poker card="qc"]. Then, on the button, Brazilian Eduardo Silva three-bet shoved his final nine big blind with the [poker card="as"][poker card="th"]. When the action returned to Huang, he called and Burns came along as well. The flop came [poker card="jc"][poker card="6s"][poker card="3h"], and both Huang and Burns checked. The turn came the [poker card="9s"], and Huang led for 600,000 and Burns called. The [poker card="qs"] hit Burns, giving him top pair and when the action checked through, he dragged the pot and sent Silva to the rail in sixth place for $330,432. It took nearly thirty minutes of five-handed play for the next elimination. With the blind up to 60,000/120,000 Anatoly Filatov opened to 240,000 on the button with [poker card="ah"][poker card="jh"]. After Theologis folded the small blind, Mark Radoja shipped all-in with the [poker card="ad"][poker card="tc"]. Filatov made the call and after the flop came [poker card="qh"][poker card="9h"][poker card="8h"], Radoja was drawing dead. A meaningless [poker card="2d"] and [poker card="jd"] came on the turn and river respectively and Radjoa finished up in fifth place for $428,518. Although he picked up some momentum from the knockout of Radoja, Filatov’s fortunes turned when play got to four-handed. With the blinds up to 70,000/140,000 Filatov was on the short stack when he moved all in from the small blind holding [poker card="jc"][poker card="tc"] and was called by the chip leading Theologis in the big blind with [poker card="kc"][poker card="qs"]. The flop came [poker card="ac"][poker card="js"][poker card="2h"], giving Filatov a pair, but leaving Theologis with both pair and straight outs. The turn was the [poker card="5s"] but the [poker card="ks"] river gave Theologis the best hand and sent Filatov out in fourth for $555,719, the second-highest score of his online career. Five hands later, a critical pot took place when Theologis put in a small raise from the small blind holding [poker card="8h"][poker card="8c"] and with more than 34 big blind in his stack, Huang pushed all-in with [poker card="5c"][poker card="5d"]. Theologis essentially snap-called which build a pot of nearly 10 million. The flop came [poker card="ah"][poker card="kh"][poker card="6h"], leaving Huang looking for the [poker card="5s"], the only card that would save him. But the [poker card="jd"] hit the turn and the [poker card="jh"] completed the board, ending Huang’s run in third place for $720,678 and giving Theologis a massive chip lead. Theologis started his heads-up battle with Burns with a nearly seven-to-one advantage and while Burns held his ground for the roughly 20-minute match, Theologis was able to use his stack to take it down. On the final hand, the pair found themselves all-in preflop, Burns holding a dominating [poker card="ah"][poker card="ts"] to Theologis’ [poker card="ad"][poker card="6d"]. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="9h"][poker card="4h"] flop looked good for Burns. When the [poker card="qs"] came on the turn, Burns looked like he was in good shape to double. But one of Theologis’ three outs, the [poker card="6c"] spiked on the river, giving him the hand. Burns settled for second place and a $934,604 payday while Alexandros Theologis earned the $1,212,032 first-place prize and his first WSOP gold bracelet. WSOP Online $25,000 Super High Roller Final Table Alexandros Theologis - $1,212,033 Kahle Burns - $934,604 Wenjie Huang - $720,679 Anatoly Filatov - $555,720 Mark Radoja - $428,518 Eduardo Silva - $330,433 Rui Ferreira - $254,798 Adrian Mateos - $196,476 Timothy Nuter - $151,504
  2. Stop us if you’ve heard this one before. Niklas Astedt, the former worldwide #1-ranked pro and one of the most decorated online poker players in history, captured this week’s GGPoker Super MILLION$ title, the third of his career, and added the $337,599 first-place prize to his more than $22.4 million in career recorded online earnings. Astedt fought through this week’s field of 171 entries to reach a record-extending thirteenth Super MILLION$ final table. A favorite in any field, the winner of the PocketFives #1 NumberOne award was, once again, faced with top-tier competition en route to the win. Newly minted PokerStars pro Benjamin Rolle, Canada’s #1-ranked Mike Watson, 2019 WSOP Main Event finalist Dario Sammartino, and the start of day chip leader Kahle Burns all made the final nine, but in the end, it was Astedt that became just the second player in Super MILLION$ history to record more than two victories. On the very first hand of the final table, with the blinds at 20,000/40,000 (5,000 ante) current worldwide #5-ranked pro Mike Watson opened to 88,000 from the cutoff with [poker card="ac"][poker card="qd"]. After ‘Neel’ called from the button holding [poker card="6s"][poker card="6d"], Astedt three-bet to 332,500 from the small blind. When the action got back to Watson, he moved all-in for just over 1 million in chip and when ‘Neel’ released his hand, Astedt quickly called putting Watson at risk. The flop came [poker card="ts"][poker card="6h"][poker card="2c"], leaving Watson looking for help to survive. The turn was the [poker card="jd"], opening the door for a gutshot straight if he could catch one of the two remaining kings. But the river came the [poker card="9h"] and Watson’s day was over in just one hand as he exited in ninth place for $52,486. While Watson was felted quickly, the rest of the table had a mind to stick around for a while. The eight players passed chips around for more than an hour and twenty minutes before the next player hit the rail. The blinds were up to 35,000/70,000 (8,500 ante) and Dario Sammartino found himself sitting on the short stack with fewer than 10 big blinds left. The action folded to him in the small blind and he shipped all-in for just over 550,000 with [poker card="ks"][poker card="2c"] and Benjamin Rolle, in the big blind, made the call with a dominating [poker card="kd"][poker card="jc"]. The [poker card="8h"][poker card="8c"][poker card="3c"] flop offered Sammartino some chop opportunities to go along with his outs. The turn was the [poker card="kh"], keeping kickers in play. The [poker card="6s"] river was no help to Sammartino and the former 2019 WSOP Main Event final tablist added another $66,235 to his bankroll for an eighth-place finish. After the hand, Rolle, who started the day ninth in chips, has climbed to third overall. With the blinds at 40,000/80,000 (10,000 ante), Eelis Parssinen woke up with [poker card="ac"][poker card="ah"] in the small blind. With the table folding to him, he put in a raise to 200,000 and a short-stacked ‘oldfishing’ decided to defend his big blind with the [poker card="jd"][poker card="8d"]. The [poker card="qd"][poker card="8c"][poker card="3d"] flop gave ‘oldfishing’ a pair and a flush draw and when Parssinen bet 120,000 into him with his aces ‘oldfishing’ went with his hand and moved all-in. Parssinen quickly called and the pair saw a turn of the [poker card="js"], sending ‘oldfishing’s two pair into the lead. However, the river came the [poker card="3h"], giving Parssinen a better two pair and ending ‘oldfishing’s run in seventh place for $83,585. India’s ‘Neel’ found themselves slipping in the chip counts and when the blinds hit 60,000/120,000 (15,000 ante) he was looking for a spot to pick up some chips. When it folded to him in the cutoff, he put in a raise holding [poker card="kc"][poker card="jh"] to 900,000, leaving himself with roughly 5 big blinds behind. On the button, Astedt looked at [poker card="ah"][poker card="ac"] and put in a raise to 2.2 million, more than enough to put everyone left in the hand all-in. The blinds both folded and when it came back to ‘Neel’, he eventually shipped all-in. The flop came [poker card="qd"][poker card="9s"][poker card="8s"], giving ‘Neel’ outs to a gutshot straight. The [poker card="7s"] turn changed nothing and when the [poker card="qs"] river hit, Astedt picked up the healthy pot and increased his chip lead to roughly double the next closest player. ‘Neel’, who won his way into this week’s Super MILLION$ on a $525 satellite, parlayed that seat into a $105,482 payday for his sixth-place finish. After ‘Neel’ departed, Brazil’s Rodrigo Selouan was firmly in last place with roughly six big blinds in his stack. Four hands later, Rolle opened the button to 240,000 with his [poker card="ah"][poker card="ts"] and after Astedt folded his small blind, Selouan defended his big blind with the [poker card="qd"][poker card="4d"]. The [poker card="th"][poker card="4h"][poker card="2s"] flop gave both players a pair and when Selouan checked it over to Rolle, the new PokerStars Pro put in a bet of 120,000. Selouan check-shipped his stack of just over 500,000 and Rolle snap-called. The [poker card="js"] and [poker card="jh"] completed the board sending Selouan out in fifth for $133,113. Six hands later it was Parssinen’s turn to be all-in. During the same level, Astedt opened first-to-act to 240,000 with [poker card="6s"][poker card="6c"]. Four-handed, and on the button, Parssinen three-bet shoved his 14 big blind stack holding [poker card="ac"][poker card="5c"]. When the action returned to Astedt, he made the call and the flop came [poker card="as"][poker card="9s"][poker card="7s"], giving Parssinen top pair but providing Astedt with additional flush outs and backdoor straight outs. The turn was the [poker card="8h"] giving Astedt open-ended straight outs as well. Parssinen couldn’t dodge all of Astedt’s outs as the [poker card="js"] river gave Astedt the flush and the hand. Parssinen, who started the day second in chips, wrapped up in fourth place which was good for $167,983. Three-handed play lasted twenty minutes with start-of-day chip leader Kahle Burns looking up at both Rolle and Astedt, each of which had more than three times his stack. The blinds were up to 80,000/160,000 (20,000 ante) when Burns completed his small blind holding [poker card="9c"][poker card="7d"] and Rolle checked his option in the big blind with [poker card="9s"][poker card="6s"]. The [poker card="kh"][poker card="6c"][poker card="4s"] flop brought a pair for Rolle and the action checked through. The turn was the [poker card="td"] and again, the action went check-check. The [poker card="9h"] hit the river pairing both, but improving Rolle to two pair. Burns led the river for 462,000 and after a few moments, Rolle moved all-in. Burns took just a few seconds before making the call for the rest of his stack and seeing the bad news. Burns took home $211,988 for his third-place finish. Heads-up play between Rolle and Astedt started with Rolle having a 10 big blind chip lead. Astedt quickly clawed back the chip lead and was on the verge of closing it out a number of times until Rolle turned the tides once again. It became an entertaining back and forth affair with both players finding themselves on the brink of elimination multiple times. After Astedt picked off a river bluff attempt by Rolle with the blinds up to 200,000/400,000 (50,000 ante) - one of the longest Super MILLION$ in recent history - Rolle found himself left with fewer than 10 big blinds as Astedt continued to apply maximum pressure. The final hand had Rolle shipping nearly 3 million on the button with [poker card="9d"][poker card="6d"] and Astedt making the quick call in the big blind with his [poker card="kh"][poker card="8d"]. The [poker card="4d"][poker card="3h"][poker card="2d"] flop looked good for Rolle, giving him flush and straight outs to go along with pair possibilities. The turn was the [poker card="as"] and Rolle was left looking for one of his 17 outs. The [poker card="jc"] was not one of them and Rolle, who rose up from the shortest stack at the start of the day, bowed out as the runner-up and collected $267,520. Niklas Astedt picked up $337,559 for his third Super MILLION$ victory. The former worldwide #1-ranked pro joins Michael Addamo as the only two players to win a Super MILLION$ in both Season One and Season Two. Super MILLION$ Final Table Results (8/24) Niklas Astedt - $337,599 Benjamin Rolle - $267,520 Kahle Burns - $211,988 Eelis Parssinen - $167,983 Rodrigo Selouan - $133,113 'Neel' - $105,482 'oldfishing' - $83,585 Dario Sammartino - $66,235 Mike Watson - $52,486
