  1. It’s been a career week for Russian nosebleed tournament crusher Artur Martirosian who, after winning the Super High Roller Bowl Europe’s $100K SHR for a career-best score of $1.4 million earlier this week, proceeded to take down this week’s GGPoker Super MILLION$ for the second time in his career, earning another $325,957. Martirosian continued to make a name for himself by battling against the best, and the Super MILLION$ final table was no exception. New Zealand’s David Yan held the chip lead at the start of the day and joining him in the final nine was Aleks Ponakovs, Pascal Hartmann, Aram Zobian, and eventual runner-up, Samuel ‘€urop€an’ Vousden. It all got started with Philadelphia online poker legend Mark Herm as he was enjoying just his second career Super MILLION$ final table. Unfortunately for the longtime PocketFiver, his stay didn’t last terribly long. Although he started day third in chips he was first out when he lost the bulk of his stack five-betting [poker card="qs"][poker card="5c"] against David Yan’s [poker card="as"][poker card="kh"] and was forced to fold when Yan six-bet moved all-in. After that, Herm found himself short-stacked. With the blinds at 20,000/40,000 (5,000 ante) Yan raised to 80,000 from the cutoff with [poker card="kc"][poker card="js"] and Herm moved all-in for just under 20 big blinds. In the small blind Wei Zhao reshoved all-in for more than 1.3 million and the rest of the field folded. The flop came [poker card="td"][poker card="9c"][poker card="8d"] giving Herm open-ended straight draw outs. But the [poker card="6h"] turn and [poker card="8h"] turn didn’t help him and Herm hit the rail in ninth place for $45,100. Less than ten minutes later, Mario Mosboeck opened from under the gun to 200,000 holding [poker card="ad"][poker card="ks"] and when it folded to Yan on the button with [poker card="kd"][poker card="kh"], he just flat called. The blinds folded and the duo took a flop of [poker card="jc"][poker card="8d"][poker card="6d"]. Mosboeck pushed his final 206,000 in the middle and Yan snap-called. The turn was the [poker card="4s"] and the river came the [poker card="8s"] eliminating Mosboeck in eighth for $57,750. Seven-handed play last until the blinds reached 40,000/80,000 (10,000) when ’Pusha T’ (Aram Zobian), with just five big blinds, moved all-in from the button with the [poker card="kh"][poker card="5h"] and Samuel Vousden made the call from the small blind with his [poker card="as"][poker card="td"]. The board ran out [poker card="jd"][poker card="jc"][poker card="3h"][poker card="qs"][poker card="2s"] keeping Vousden’s ace-high ahead the whole time and bringing him some much needed breathing room. ‘Pusha T’, who started the day eighth in chips, laddered into seventh place and walked away with $73,948. Four hands later, Aleks Ponakovs, who had been grinding fewer than five big blinds, opened from middle position with [poker card="5s"][poker card="5h"] to 192,000, leaving himself less than a small blind behind. Martirosian, the new chip leader, moved all-in for more than 7.7 million with [poker card="ad"][poker card="7c"] and when everyone folded, Ponakovs made the call. The [poker card="5d"][poker card="6d"][poker card="qh"] flop brought a set for Ponakovs and put him at greater than 90% to win the hand. The [poker card="8d"] turn however brought Martirosian both straight and flush outs. The [poker card="3d"] river brought in the runner-runner flush and Ponakovs settled for sixth place and $94,689. During the same level, Zhao quickly saw his 2.2 million chip stack crumble. First he moved all-in from the small blind with [poker card="js"][poker card="4s"] into Vousden in the big blind with [poker card="8c"][poker card="8h"]. The pocket eights held and as Vousden doubled, Zhao was quickly the short stack. Two hands later Zhao moved all-in for 1.1 million with [poker card="jc"][poker card="tc"] and Pascal Hartmann in the small blind woke up with [poker card="qh"][poker card="qc"] and quickly called. Hartmann was at risk when the flop came [poker card="ad"][poker card="9c"][poker card="8c"], bringing Zhao a straight flush draw. The turn was the [poker card="kc"] and Zhao scored the jack-high flush. But the river was [poker card="4c"], shipping the pot to Hartmann’s queen-high flush and Zhao was left with one small blind. Zhao busted two hands later and finished up in fifth place for $121,247. Again, it took only one hand after a bustout for another to occur. At 50,000/100,000 (12,500 ante) Martirosian opened from the cutoff to 200,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="qs"]. Vousden called in the small blind with [poker card="6d"][poker card="6h"] and when it reached Hartmann in the big blind, he made it 1.9 million to go, leaving himself 300,000 behind. Martirosian shipped the big stack, Vousden folded his sixes and Hartmann committed the rest of his stack. The board ran out [poker card="8d"][poker card="8s"][poker card="5s"][poker card="jh"][poker card="ad"], allowing Martirosian’s kicker to play and ending Hartmann’s tournament in fourth place, good for $155,254. On the last hand of the level, Vousden raised the button to 200,000 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="td"] and, after Martirosian folded his small blind, Yan, sitting on the short stack shipped for more than 1 million with the [poker card="ks"][poker card="qd"]. Vousden called and was out ahead on the [poker card="ac"][poker card="6d"][poker card="2s"] flop. The turn was [poker card="8h"], leaving Yan drawing dead to the [poker card="js"] river. Yan’s third-place results earned him $198,800. Heads-up play started with Martirosian having roughly a two-to-one chip lead over Vousden. However, play was still plenty deep with Vousden holding more than 30 big blinds. After an extensive heads-up battle, Martirosian grinded Vousden down to a six-to-one deficit as the blinds went up to 80,000/160,000 (20,000 ante). On the final hand, Vousden limped the button with [poker card="th"][poker card="td"] and Martirosian checked his option with his [poker card="8h"][poker card="9s"]. The [poker card="8s"][poker card="6s"][poker card="5h"] flop provided all the necessary fireworks. Martirosian checked to Vousden who put in a bet of 240,000. Martirosian check-raised to 608,000 and when the action returned to Vousden he moved all-in. Martirosian called and needed some help. That help arrived when the [poker card="9d"] gave Martirosian two pair and then it was Vousden looking for one of his many outs. The [poker card="3s"] was not one of them and Vousden ended up as the runner-up, collecting $254,559. Artur Martirosian scored his second career Super MILLION$ title and collected the $325,957 first-place prize. GGPoker Super MILLION$ Final Table (8/31) Artur Martirosian - $325,957 Samuel Vousden - $254,559 David Yan - $198,800 Pascal Hartmann - $155,254 Wei Zhao - $121,247 Aleks Ponakovs - $94,689 ‘Pusha T’ - $73,948 Mario Mosboeck - $57,750 Mark Herm - $45,100
  2. Andras Nemeth started the final table of this week’s GGPoker Super MILLION$ eighth in chips, but the former #1-ranked online pro quickly climbed out of the cellar and promptly ran over the table, eliminating five of his final eight opponents and earning his first career Super MILLION$ title and the $325,957 top prize. It took nearly forty minutes for the first player to hit the rail. Although he started the day seventh in chips, with the blinds at 20,000/40,000 (5,000 ante) Daniel Dvoress was sitting at the bottom of the chip counts. After Nemeth opened from the cutoff to 84,000 with [poker card="ks"][poker card="kh"], Dvoress moved all-in for 536,000 from the big blind with the [poker card="ah"][poker card="jc"]. Nemeth made the quick call and the board ran out [poker card="th"][poker card="8d"][poker card="4s"][poker card="7s"][poker card="3c"] shipping the pot to Nemeth’s pocket kings and ending Dvoress’ day in ninth place for $45,100. With the blinds up to 30,000/60,000 (7,500) ante, a rare double bustout took place. A short-stacked ‘Nator’ moved all-in from middle position for just over 530,000 holding [poker card="js"][poker card="tc"] and right behind him, Marius Gierse called with his [poker card="ac"][poker card="qd"]. When the action folded around to Daniel Smiljkovic in the big blind, he moved all-in for a total of 1.1 million with [poker card="jc"][poker card="jd"]. With ‘Nator’ already all-in, Gierse took a few moments and, with the largest stack of all three, decided to make the call. The flop came [poker card="ah"][poker card="7c"][poker card="4h"], quickly putting Gierse in command of the hand. The turn was the [poker card="8h"] and the river was the [poker card="qs"], giving Gierse top two pair and securing the double KO. ‘Nator’ officially exited in eighth place for $57,750 and Smiljkovic finished in seventh place, good for $73,948. One orbit later, Nemeth opened to 126,000 from under the gun with [poker card="7s"][poker card="7h"] only to be three-bet to 646,000 by Austria’s ‘niNohR’ on the button holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="kh"]. After the blinds let their hands go Nemeth four-bet enough to put ‘niNohR’ all-in, and ‘niNohR’ called it off. Nemeth’s pocket sevens held across the board of [poker card="9h"][poker card="9d"][poker card="4s"][poker card="5c"][poker card="3d"] and in just their second ever Super MILLION$ event, ‘niNohR’ finished in sixth place for $94,689. Thomas Muehloecker has had a habit of making the final table of the Super MILLION$ as of late, but has yet to close one out. He started the day fifth in chips but had a hard time gaining momentum. On his final hand of the day, with blinds up to 35,000/70,000 (8,500 ante) Nemeth raised from the button to 147,000 with [a][poker card="9h"] and from the small blind, Muehloecker shipped his 13 big blind stack with [poker card="kd"][poker card="jc"]. With the overwhelming chip lead, Nemeth made the call. The flop came [poker card="ac"][poker card="js"][poker card="4h"] bringing Nemeth top pair, and pairing Muehloecker’s jack. The [poker card="3c"] turn was no help to Muehloecker and the [poker card="5d"] river ended his quest for a Super MILLION$ title in fifth place for $121,247. Minutes later, after the blinds escalated to 40,000/80,000 (10,000 ante), ‘oiltrader’ open-shoved his 1.3 million stack with [poker card="kd"][poker card="js"]. On the button, high-stakes savant Artur Martirosian three-bet shipped his more than 2 million chip stack with [poker card="td"][poker card="th"] forcing folds from Gierse and Nemeth. The [poker card="9s"][poker card="6s"][poker card="4s"] flop brought ‘oiltrader’ flush outs to go with his overcards, but the [poker card="4h"] turn and [poker card="5c"] river was of no help. ‘oiltrader’ fell in fourth place for $155,254. Three-handed play started with Nemeth holding a roughly 2:1 chip lead over both Martirosian and Gierse. Nemeth would add on to his lead in a classic flip against Gierse. In the small blind, Gierse completed with his [poker card="qd"][poker card="qh"] and Nemeth put in a raise to 320,000 holding [poker card="ac"][poker card="ks"]. Gierse took a few seconds and three-bet to 960,000 and Nemeth promptly four-bet shoved. Gierse, looking for a double up, called with his pocket queens and the pair saw a flop of [poker card="ad"][poker card="th"][poker card="2c"], putting Nemeth in the lead. The turn was the [poker card="jd"] bringing Gierse some additional outs, but the [poker card="js"] was not one of them and Gierse, who started the day with the chip lead, settled for third place and a $198,800 payday. Heads-up play didn’t last long as momentum continued to be on Nemeth’s side. On the final hand of the day the blinds were at 50,000/100,000 (12,500 ante) and Nemeth held a better than 12:1 lead over his talented Russian opponent. Martirosian completed on the button with [poker card="jd"][poker card="8s"] and Nemeth checked his option with [poker card="3h"][poker card="2c"]. The [poker card="8s"][poker card="2h"][poker card="2s"] flop provided all the action that was necessary to finish the tournament. Nemeth checked, Martirosian bet 100,000, Nemeth check-raised to 200,000, Martirosian made it 350,000 and Nemeth called. The turn was the [poker card="tc"] and after Nemeth checked, Martirosian moved all-in and Nemeth quickly called leaving Martirosian looking for an eight. The river was the [poker card="6s"] and Martirosian ended up in second place for $254,559 while Nemeth captured the $325,957 first-place prize.
