  1. Daniel Smiljkovic entered the final day of GGPoker WSOP Online Event #8 ($5,000 6-Handed NLH Championship) with a healthy chip lead that he never relinquished as he sailed to victory, earning an online career-high score of $423,426 and his first World Series of Poker gold bracelet. The 479-entry field generated a prize pool of more than $2.275 million and featured a who’s who of online poker talent. Notable names including Super MILLION$ crusher Thomas Muehloecker, former #1-ranked Niklas Astedt, and 2020 WSOP Main Event champion Damian Salas were all eliminated just a few spots shy of making the money. Daniel Negreanu streamed his way to a cash and was joined by the likes of Brazilian Pedro Padilha, Kevin Martin, Anatoly Filatov, Galen Hall, and last year’s GGPoker WSOP Online Main Event champion Stoyan Madanzhiev. By the end of Day 1, only nine players were left, and once Roman Hrabec (9th, $32,218) and ‘DontTIltGG’ (8th, $37,451.71) were eliminated the final seven players converged at the final table. Mere minutes into play, Aki Virtanen hit the rail when his [poker card="3s"][poker card="3h"] couldn’t outrace Xuming Qi’s [poker card="ad"][poker card="jd"] on the [poker card="jh"][poker card="7h"][poker card="5c"][poker card="js"]qc] board. Virtanen’s seventh-place run was good for $60,489.34. With six left and the blinds at 40,000/80,000 (10,000 ante), the chip stacks were polarized with three players sitting on dangerously low chip stacks and looking to double in order to get back in the thick of things. Five hands after Virtanen’s bustout, the first of the final six fell. Smiljkovic put in a raise from under the gun to 160,000 with the [poker card="ah"][poker card="4h"] and Yonatan Koko, next to act, moved all-in for just shy of 191,000 holding [poker card="ac"][poker card="4s"]. On the button, Qi made the call with [poker card="8s"][poker card="8d"], and Smiljkovic completed as well. The flop came [poker card="js"][poker card="5d"][poker card="4d"] and the action checked through. The turn was the [poker card="7d"] and, again, both Smiljkovic and Qi checked. The river came the [poker card="3d"] and when both players checked a third time, Qi’s pocket eights were good and Koko was eliminated in sixth place for $83,662.13. At 50,000/100,000 (12,500 ante), Qi put in a raise from the cutoff to 200,000 with the [poker card="ah"][poker card="qd"] and George Wolff three-bet shipped his final 12 big blinds on the button with his [poker card="ts"][poker card="th"]. Christodoulos Christodoulou called the shove from the small blind holding [poker card="ad"][poker card="kh"] and when the action returned to Qi, they called as well. The flop came [poker card="qs"][poker card="2c"][poker card="jh"], keeping Wolff’s pocket tens in the lead and both Christodoulou and Qi checked. The [poker card="tc"] hit the turn and while Wolff improved to a set, Christodoulou hit a gutshot straight draw. Christodoulou led for just 200,000 into the pot of 4 million and Qi flat called. The river was the [poker card="kc"], improving Qi to a straight as well and when Christodoulou, again, bet 200,000, Qi made the call and the pair chopped the pot as Wolff’s set was second best. Wolff finished in fifth place and collected $115,712.02. The elimination of Wolff was good news for Marius Gierse who was sitting on just four big blinds and would, at the very least, ladder a pay jump of roughly $45,000. On Gierse’s big blind, Qi opened from under the gun to 200,000 and when it folded back to the Austrian, he defended, leaving himself fewer than two big blinds behind. The flop came [poker card="ts"][poker card="5h"][poker card="2s"] and Gierse checked to Qi who moved all-in for more than enough to cover Gierse. Gierse folded, leaving himself just one hand to try and come back. From the small blind on the next hand, Gierse put his final 165,000 in the middle with [poker card="qs"][poker card="7h"] and Qi quickly called holding [poker card="kh"][poker card="9s"] and the board ran out [poker card="ks"][poker card="jd"][poker card="4h"][poker card="7s"][poker card="9d"], shipping the small pot to Qi and sending Marius out in fourth place for $160,040.02. Combined with his third-place finish in the GGPoker Super MILLION$ just one day prior for $198,800, Gierse took home more than $358,000 in a 24-hour span. At three-handed Smiljkovic held a better than 2:1 chip lead over both Qi and Christodoulou and for the better part of 20 minutes the two shorter stacks took turns passing chips back and forth and taking over second place. For Christodoulou, his key final table hand took place when the blinds were at 70,000/140,000 (17,5000 ante). On the button, Qi raised to 280,000 with the [poker card="7c"][poker card="4c"] and Christodoulou found [poker card="as"][poker card="ad"] in the small blind and made it 420,000 to go. Smiljkovic let go of his big blind and Qi called the min-raise. The flop came [poker card="4s"][poker card="4h"][poker card="3h"] giving Qi trips and leaving Christodoulou’s aces needing help. Christodoulou led out for 280,000 and Qi flatted. The turn was the [poker card="td"] and Christodoulou led again, this time for 560,000. Qi raised to 1.4 million and Christodoulou, having Qi covered, instantly shipped. Qi snap-called and showed Christodoulou that he was about to have his aces cracked. The river was the [poker card="8s"] sending the massive 8.4 million pot to Qi and leaving Christodoulou with just over 1 million in chips. Despite finding a quick double two hands later, Christodoulou hit the rail in third place just four hands later when he moved all-in with [poker card="qd"][poker card="7d"] and Smiljkovic called with [poker card="ad"][poker card="kh"] and the board ran out [poker card="qh"][poker card="jh"][poker card="jd"][poker card="5s"][poker card="kd"]. Christodoulou took home $221,349.35 for the third-place finish. The heads-up battle between Smiljkovic and Qi didn’t last long. Over the course of 15 minutes, Smiljkovic steadily chipped away at Qi’s stack, applying pressure in key spots and showing down big hands in others. By the time the final hand played out, Smiljkovic turned his lead into a 10:1 advantage. With blinds at 80,000/160,000 (20,000 ante) Qi open-shipped the button holding [poker card="8d"][poker card="6d"] and Smiljkovic called for the win with his [poker card="kh"][poker card="qh"]. The [poker card="as"][poker card="3s"][poker card="3c"] flop kept king-high in the lead. The [poker card="4h"] turn changed nothing and when the [poker card="qc"] river hit, Qi’s run was over in second place which was good for $306,145.45. Smiljkovic ended up with a career-high online cash of $423,426.16, and his first WSOP gold bracelet. GGPoker WSOP Online Event #8 Final Table Results Daniel Smiljkovic - $423,426.16 Xuming Qi - $306,145.45 Christodoulos Christodoulou - $221,349.35 Marius Gierse - $160,040.02 George Wolff - $115,712.02 Yonatan Koto - $83,662.13
  2. Andras Nemeth started the final table of this week’s GGPoker Super MILLION$ 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.
