Francois Billard has had a lot of success at the Playground Poker Club in Montreal over the course of his career, but Sunday night the Canadian poker pro put an exclamation point on all of them by winning the partypoker MILLIONS North America Main Event for a career-best $715,414 score. It took just 14 hands for Kevin Rabichow, who started the day as the chip leader, to pick off one of the shorter stacks. With blinds of 800,000/1,600,000, Rabichow opened from UTG for 3,200,000 and Danick Landriault defended his big blind. After a flop of [poker card="qs"][poker card="8c"][poker card="5c"], Landriault check-called Rabichow's bet of 2,400,000. The [poker card="2h"] turn saw Landriault check again before Rabichow moved all in. Landriault called and showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="8s"] which put him behind Rabichow's [poker card="qd"][poker card="jc"]. The [poker card="3c"] river was no help for Landriault and he was out in sixth. It took almost six hours before the next player was sent out. Action folded to Billard on the button and he moved all in. Alexandros Kolonias folded his small blind but Paul Fontan called all in from the big blind. Billard turned over [poker card="jc"][poker card="4c"] and Fontan showed [poker card="qh"][poker card="7h"]. The [poker card="js"][poker card="9c"][poker card="6h"] flop gave Billard the lead and neither the [poker card="td"][ turn or [poker card="2c"] river were able to save Fontan from a fifth place result. Two hours later, Rabichow found another victim. From UTG, Rabichow raised to 7,000,000 and Kolonias called from the big blind. The flop [poker card="tc"][poker card="9d"][poker card="4h"] flop got both players to check. Kolonias checked again after the [poker card="ts"] flop, but Rabichow bet 5,500,000 and Kolonias called. The river was the [poker card="qc"] and Kolonias checked again. Rabichow shoved all in and Kolinias called and showed [poker card="9s"][poker card="6c"] but lost to Rabichow's [poker card="ac"][poker card="qh"] for a fourth place finish. The final three players played for a while before coming to an agreement on an ICM chop. Francois Billard - $557,278 Joni Jouhkimainen - $434,063 Kevin Rabichow - $430,848 The players agree to leave $158,003 on the table for the eventual champion. Despite the deal, the final three players played for three hours before the next elimination. After Rabichow folded his button, Jouhkimainen moved all in from the small blind and Billard called from the big blind. Jouhkimainen tabled [poker card="qc"][poker card="6c"] while Billard showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="jc"]. The board ran out [poker card="8c"][poker card="3d"][poker card="2h"][poker card="4c"][poker card="7d"] to send Jouhkimainen's day in third position. Heads-up play started with Billard holding a 2.7-1 lead over Rabichow and it took just over an hour for Billard to finish him off. On the final hand, Rabichow raised to 12,000,0000 and Billard clicked back for 42,000,000. Rabichow called to see a flop of [poker card="kd"][poker card="9c"][poker card="8s"]. Billard bet 26,000,000 and Rabichow called. The [poker card="th"] turn was good enough to get Billard to move all in and Rabichow called. Billard showed [poker card="ts"][poker card="9d"] for a turned two pair while Rabichow tabled [poker card="jh"][poker card="td"] for second pair and an open-ender. The river was the [poker card="6d"] and Billard eliminated Rabichow to win the partypoker MILLIONS Main Event. Final Table Payouts Francois Billard - $715,414 Kevin Rabichow - $430,848 Joni Jouhkimainen - $434,063 Alexandros Kolonias - $275,331 Paul Fontan - $223,241 Danick Landriault - $186,035 Ben Heath - $148,828 Ruben Perceval - $111,621
