  1. After battling back from a short stack and climbing out of a nearly four-to-one heads-up chip deficit, renowned high-stakes tournament pro Benjamin ‘bencb’ Rolle bested the talent-packed final table of the 34th edition of the $10K GGPoker Super MILLION$ to walk away with this week’s $424,580 first-place prize. This week was Rolle’s 11th time playing the event and it marked his fourth cash and second final table. His previous final table appearance was back on August 9 when he finished in fifth place for $136,479. In total, the Raise Your Edge lead coach had previously earned $276,213, and his victory this week brought his Super MILLION$ total prize money to just over $700,000. At the start of the final table, Rolle was considered one of the long shots to win. He was starting the day eighth in chips (just 6% in play) and, along with Rolle himself, the final table featured some of poker’s brightest minds. Nick Petrangelo was highlighted as the chip leader and joining him at the top of the chip counts was online poker’s former #1-ranked Bert ‘girafganger7’ Stevens and UK high-stakes savant Michael Zhang. Like Rolle, Aliaksei Boika was enjoying his second trip to the final table of the Super MILLION$. In his first appearance Boika finished in ninth place and this time he was hoping for more. Unfortunately for Boika, he got involved in a big hand while holding [poker card="ac"][poker card="td"] against Bert Stevens who held [poker card="ah"][poker card="kd"] on a board that ran out [poker card="as"][poker card="kh"][poker card="3h"][poker card="5s"][poker card="tc"]. When Stevens shoved the river, Boika made the call which left his stack crippled. It was déjà vu for Boika as he was eliminated on the very next hand, in ninth place, for $53,073. With roughly 10 big blinds, Ukraine’s Andrii Novak put in a late position raise with [poker card="ad"][poker card="tc"] to which Nick Petrangelo, in the cutoff, three-bet with his [poker card="9c"][poker card="9h"]. When it folded back to Novak he shipped, Petrangelo quickly called and the pair watched as the board ran out [poker card="jd"][poker card="6c"][poker card="2d"][poker card="qh"][poker card="6s"]. Novak, who started the day sixth in chips, was out in eighth place and collected $68,826. The very next hand, ‘U LOSSER’ opened under the gun with [poker card="td"][poker card="th"] only to be three-bet by Stevens holding [poker card="js"][poker card="jc"]. After Michael Zhang folded [poker card="ad"][poker card="qc"] in the big blind, ‘U LOSSER’ committed the rest of his chips, putting their tournament at risk. The flop came [poker card="8h"][poker card="3h"][poker card="2s"] giving ‘U LOSSER’ a back door flush draw to hope for. The [poker card="ah"] turn made it interesting, but the [poker card="as"] completed the board sending ‘U LOSSER’ out in seventh for $89,257. With six left, Steven put in a raise with the [poker card="kd"][poker card="kh"]. Rolle then three-bet shipped his 15 big blind stack with [poker card="ks"][poker card="6s"]. It folded to the ‘WatWudHaraldSDo’ in the big blind who shipped his 35 big blind stack with [poker card="tc"][poker card="ts"]. Stevens, covering both players, made the call with his kings and the three watched a flop of [poker card="ac"][poker card="9c"][poker card="8c"] providing some flush outs to ‘WatWudHaraldSDo’ but keeping Stevens in the lead. With less than a 2% chance of pulling it out, Rolle was all but out the door. The turn was the [poker card="7d"] giving hope to both Rolle and ‘WatWudHaraldSDo’ who now both had open-ended straight draw outs. The river was the [poker card="5s"] bringing Rolle back from the brink with a straight but sending ‘WatWudHaraldSDo’ out the door in sixth place for $115,752. The final five grinded for over an hour until the next player was eliminated. Petrangelo opened in the cutoff with the [poker card="jc"][poker card="jh"] and, with just 15 big blinds left, Stevens three-bet shoved his [poker card="as"][poker card="9s"] from the small blind. Petrangelo made the call and the board ran out [poker card="qc"][poker card="tc"][poker card="4d"][poker card="6s"][poker card="9h"] giving the pot to Petrangelo’s pocket jacks. Stevens hit the rail in fifth place and added another $150,112 to his over $13.3 million in career online earnings. In his 32nd appearance in the GGPoker Super MILLION$, Lithuanian pro Laurynas Levinskas was guaranteed his best Super MILLION$ finish once play reached four-handed. From the cutoff, Levinskas shipped his final seven big blinds with [poker card="3s"][poker card="3h"]. Zhang came over the top holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="ts"]. The flop came [poker card="kd"][poker card="qd"][poker card="8s"] keeping Levinskas in front but providing some extra straight outs to Zhang. The turn was the [poker card="4h"] but it was the [poker card="ad"] river that ended Levinskas’ run this week. Levinskas finished in fourth place for $194,671 bringing his Super MILLION$ earnings up over $627,000. With just three left, Zhang held a two-to-one chip advantage on both Rolle and Petrangelo. Petrangelo made his move, looking to do something about that when he opened from the button holding [poker card="qd"][poker card="jd"]. Zhang, from the big blind, made the call with his [poker card="ks"][poker card="tc"]. Zhang hit top pair on the [poker card="kc"][poker card="7s"][poker card="3c"] flop and checked it over to Petrangelo who put in a bet. Zhang called and the [poker card="9d"] peeled off on the turn. Zhang checked again, Petrangelo fired big again. Zhang made the call. Zhang checked for the third time, and with just 13 big blinds left Petrangelo emptied the chip and fired the third barrel, leaving himself less than one big blind behind. Zhang went into his timebank but ultimately found a call taking the hand down with top pair. Petrangelo was left with next-to-nothing but managed to double up over the next few hands. Ultimately, he went broke four hands later when his [poker card="qd"][poker card="5d"] fell to Zhang’s [poker card="ad"][poker card="2h"]. Petrangelo finished in third place for $252,457. With a nearly four-to-one and momentum on his side, it looked like Zhang was about to pull out his first victory in just his third-ever GGPoker Super MILLION$ appearance. But Rolle steadily chipped up, found a double, evened the stacks, and eventually took the lead. Rolle kept the pressure on and while Zhang made some moves of his own, the cards continued to fall Rolle’s way. All the chips made it into the middle when Rolle called on the button with the [poker card="ac"][poker card="6c"] and Zhang moved all-in for roughly 15 big blinds with the [poker card="qd"][poker card="th"]. Rolle called and the [poker card="ad"][poker card="kd"][poker card="8s"] flop put him in the lead right away. Zhang picked up gutshot straight outs along with his backdoor flush possibilities. The [poker card="qc"] killed his flush outs but added two pair possibilities. It was not to be though as the [poker card="kc"] completed the board sending the accomplished Zhang out in second place for $327,396. Super MILLION$ Final Table Results (2/2) 1.

  2. Germany’s Pascal Hartmann entered Tuesday’s GGPoker Super MILLION$ final table near the very bottom of the chip counts but after chipping up and eliminating each of his final five opponents, the high-stakes superstar emerged as this week’s winner and took home the $454,907 first-place prize. Hartmann has been a consistent presence in the $10K Super MILLION$ field having participated in 31 of the 32 times the tournament has been run. This was his tenth in-the-money finish and fourth final table, the result of which has sent him into the tournament series top 10 money earners. At the start of the day, Hartmann was in eighth place with roughly 25 big blinds and facing off against another talent-packed final table that included online poker legend Isaac Baron, Ami Barer, and 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event runner-up Dario Sammartino. Despite the hurdles in front of him, Hartmann managed to continually pick up big hands in key spots which lifted him to victory. Even though the chips were flying in the first ninety minutes of the final table, it was slow going in terms of players hitting the rail. Finally, a short-stacked Aliakesei Boika shipped his final nine big blinds in with [poker card="7c"][poker card="7d"] and ran into Russia’s ‘RRomashka’s [poker card="tc"][poker card="td"]. Dominated by the pair as well as both suits, the board ran out [poker card="9c"][poker card="6c"][poker card="2h"][poker card="5c"][poker card="4c"] provided a little drama as Boika had both straight and straight flush outs headed into the river. But the pocket tens held and Boika fell in ninth place for $56,864. Ami Barer exited in eighth place when his [poker card="qs"][poker card="qc"] failed to hold against Argentina’s ‘OnTheFlow’s [poker card="ad"][poker card="kc"] in a preflop clash. The board ran out [poker card="ah"][poker card="5s"][poker card="2c"][poker card="2s"][poker card="8s"] and Barer added $73,743 to his bankroll. Then, roughly thirty minutes later, Kyle Menard hit the rail in painful fashion. A short-stacked Sammartino moved all in under the gun with [poker card="qc"][poker card="jc"]. Looking to double up his own short stack, Menard called with his tournament on the line holding [poker card="kd"][poker card="ks"]. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="kh"][poker card="6h"] gave Menard middle set, but the [poker card="td"] turn turned the tide to Sammartino, hitting his gutshot straight draw. The [poker card="9h"] river was no help to Menard who exited in seventh place for $95,633. Soon after the second break, Hartmann and Baron clashed for the chip lead. Under the gun, Baron raised with [poker card="ah"][poker card="kc"]. It folded back to Hartmann in the big blind who three-bet with [poker card="qs"][poker card="qd"]. Baron quickly shoved the rest of his 30 big blind stack and Hartmann made the call. The [poker card="9c"][poker card="8s"][poker card="5d"][poker card="6d"][poker card="td"] board was clean for the pocket queens and Baron, who had won his previous Super MILLION$ final table appearance, settled for sixth place and $124,020. Two hands later Hartmann was back in action, this time against Sammartino. The fortunes had reversed for these two players as Sammartino entered the final table as the chip leader but with five left was sitting on fewer than 10 big blinds. From the hijack, Sammartino put in a big raise with [poker card="ah"][poker card="4c"], leaving himself with less than one big blind behind. On the button, Hartmann made the call with [poker card="jd"][poker card="js"]. The flop came [poker card="qs"][poker card="7d"][poker card="3c"] and Sammartino committed the rest of his chips, which Hartmann quickly called. Sammartino spiked the [poker card="ac"] on the turn and was in a perfect position to double up. But Hartmann spiked one of his two outs with the [poker card="jh"] river, sending Sammartino out in fifth for $160,834. Hartmann’s heater continued when ‘RRomashka’ shoved all-in with [poker card="3s"][poker card="3h"] and Hartmann woke up with [poker card="8h"][poker card="8s"]. Hartmann spikes a set on the turn leaving ‘RRomashka’ drawing dead to the river. The Russian finished in fourth place for $208,576, nearly doubling the amount of their previous earnings in the Super MILLION$. ‘OnTheFlow’ was the next to go. Now, the overwhelming chip leader, Hartmann shoved from the small blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="6d"] and ‘OnTheFlow’, with 13 big blinds, made his stand by calling all-in from the big blind with [poker card="kh"][poker card="th"]. The flop came [poker card="qc"][poker card="6s"][poker card="3d"] pairing Hartmann, but changing nothing. The turn was the [poker card="9c"], giving ‘OnTheFlow’ additional straight outs. But the river came the [poker card="4h"] and ‘OnTheFlow’ was out in third place for $270,490. Hartmann entered heads-up play against Ireland’s ‘Pluto The Doggo’ with a nearly 6-1 chip advantage. That grew to nearly 10-1 at one point but ‘Pluto The Doggo’, who was at their second Super MILLION$ final table in as many weeks, clawed their way back into the match by picking up a key pot or two and scoring a crucial double up. However, as it was demonstrated throughout the final table, it was Hartmann’s day. On the final hand, Hartmann called on the button with [poker card="kh"][poker card="6h"]. ‘Pluto The Doggo’ put in a three-bet with [poker card="jh"][poker card="5s"] and Hartmann came along. The flop came [poker card="9d"][poker card="3h"][poker card="2h"] and ‘Pluto The Doggo’ led out, Hartmann with the flush draw made the call. The turn was the [poker card="7d"] and ‘Pluto The Doggo’ stayed aggressive, leading again. Hartmann made the call. The river came the [poker card="5h"], pairing ‘Pluto The Doggo’ but giving Hartmann his flush. ‘Pluto The Doggo’ then checked and Hartmann shipped all-in. After taking some time, ‘Pluto The Doggo’ called off which sent him home as the runner-up. ‘Pluto The Doggo’ collected $350,782 for second place and brought his career Super MILLION$ total to just over $487,000.
