  1. Niklas Astedt has done it yet again. Sweden’s former worldwide #1-ranked online poker legend, won his record-tying fourth GGPoker Super MILLION$ title on Tuesday, this time for $315,882. Astedt has no shortage of ways he can win a tournament, but when he’s on a heater it’s almost unfair. Astedt knocked out six of his final eight opponents, the majority of which he had dominated by picking up premium hands in key spots. That said, it wasn’t all just rungood for Astedt who, after starting the day eighth in chips, made all the right moves to put himself in a position to win against a tough final table that included Damian Salas, Chris Puetz, Christian Rudolph, Rui Ferreira, and Artur Martirosian. Nearly thirty minutes into the final hand, one of Russia’s premier players, Artur Martirosian, hit the rail. After his [poker card="as"][poker card="ac"] was cracked by China’s ‘d7777’s [poker card="9c"][poker card="8h"], Martirosian was sitting on the short stack. With the blinds at 25,000/50,000 (6,000 ante), chip leader ‘0asis’ made it 100,000 to go holding [poker card="7d"][poker card="7s"] and when it folded to Martirosian in the big blind, the Russian defended holding the [poker card="9d"][poker card="4d"]. The flop came [poker card="8d"][poker card="7c"][poker card="2h"] giving ‘0asis’ a set. Martirosian checked it over to ‘0asis’ who checked it back. The river was the [poker card="9c"], giving Martirosian top pair. Martirosian led for just over 117,000 and ‘0asis’ shoved. Martirosian called and found himself drawing dead to the [poker card="as"] river. Martirosian exited in ninth place for $49,109. Two hands later, Astedt opened from early position to 275,000 with his [poker card="ad"][poker card="ac"]. It folded around to Chris Puetz in the big blind with [poker card="ah"][poker card="kd"] and the Austrian shoved for nearly 1.4 million. Astedt called instantly and the board ran out [poker card="4s"][poker card="qs"][poker card="3h"][poker card="2h"][poker card="kh"] keeping Astedt’s pocket aces ahead the entire time and ending Puetz’s run in eighth place for $61,974. Astedt did double duty just minutes later when ‘RRomashka’ opened to 100,000 from middle position with [poker card="9c"][poker card="9h"]. When the action reached Astedt in the small blind, he just called with the [poker card="kc"][poker card="kh"]. Then from the big blind, Rui Ferreira three-bet shoved more than 1.2 million holding [poker card="tc"][poker card="ts"]. ‘RRomashka’, with fewer chips called for his tournament and when it was back to Astedt, who had both covered, he stuck it all-in as well. A three-way all-in with three pocket pairs. The flop came [poker card="ad"][poker card="qd"][poker card="jc"] leaving ‘RRomashka’ looking for a nine or running cards. Ferreira picked up a gutshot straight draw if he could find one of the final two kings and Astedt held a healthy lead. The turn was the [poker card="5s"], leaving both Ferreira and ‘RRomashka’ with a less than 5% shot at hitting their hand. Both missed when the [poker card="qc"] completed the board. ‘RRomashka’, with fewer chips, is the seventh-place finisher for $78,209 and Ferreira settled for sixth and its $98,696 payday. Five-handed play lasted for over an hour, and the blinds had climbed to 70,000/140,000 (17,500 ante) when Astedt used another big hand to take out another dangerous opponent. This time it was 2020 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Damian Salas. From under the gun, Astedt opened to 280,00 holding [poker card="qc"][poker card="qd"] and when it reached Salas on the button, he shipped his final 15 big blinds. Astedt, again, snap-called with a dominating hand and the pair watched as the board ran out [poker card="kh"][poker card="9h"][poker card="6s"][poker card="7s"][poker card="jh"]. Astedt dragged another big pot and Salas was out in fifth place for $124,550. Christian Rudolph, who started the day fourth in chips, was slowly slipping in the chip counts with just four left. Eventually, after Rudolph lost an important pot to Astedt, he was left with just fewer than five big blinds. It all came to a head when Astedt put in a raise to 400,000 on the button with [poker card="8d"][poker card="8c"] and Rudolph, in the big blind defend with [poker card="kd"][poker card="2c"], leaving himself just over one big blind behind. The flop came [poker card="6h"][poker card="5c"][poker card="4h"] and Rudolph committed the last of his stack. Astedt called, leaving Rudolph looking to hit his gutshot straight draw or his overcard. The turn was the [poker card="7d"], bringing in a straight for Astedt and the best Rudolph could hope for was to hit one of the two remaining eights for a chop. The river was the [poker card="2s"] and Rudolph was out in fourth place for $157,177. Astedt built a substantial chip lead over his final two opponents. But after ‘0asis’ bested ‘d7777’ in a big hand where ‘0asis’s [poker card="ac"][poker card="qh"] dominated ‘d7777’s [poker card="ad"][poker card="jc"], ‘0asis’ got healthy and ‘d7777’ was left with just four big blinds. ‘0asis’ completed the elimination just a couple of hands later when they got it all-in preflop holding [poker card="as"][poker card="8s"] against ‘d7777’s [poker card="qh"][poker card="ts"]. The [poker card="8c"][poker card="5s"]3c] flop kept ‘0asis’ in the lead with ace high. The turn came the [poker card="2h"], leaving ‘d7777’ looking for a queen or a ten to stay alive. However, the river was the [poker card="ah"], giving ‘0asis’ top pair and sending ‘d7777’ out in third with a career-high $198,351 score. After the elimination, ‘0asis’ held a slim chip lead over Astedt when heads-up began. It was a short back-and-forth affair with the chip counts of both remaining tight. However, after the next break, with the blinds up to 125,000/250,000 (30,000 ante) ‘0asis’ pulled way ahead, grabbing a three-to-one chip lead. But Astedt isn’t considered one of the best of all time for nothing. The Swede battled back and brought the stacks back to even. Then the deciding hand of heads-up took place. The blinds had climbed to 175,000/350,000 (45,000 ante) when Astedt called on the button holding [poker card="td"][poker card="tc"]. ‘0asis’ raised to just over 1 million in the big blind with the [poker card="ac"][poker card="qs"]. Astedt shoved for 7.8 million and ‘0asis’ called leaving themselves with less than a small blind behind. The flop came [poker card="8c"][poker card="5d"][poker card="4s"], leaving ‘0asis’ needing some help. The [poker card="9h"] turn changed nothing and when the [poker card="4h"] hit the river, the massive pot was shipped to Astedt. ‘0asis’ was all-in the very next hand with [poker card="8h"][poker card="5h"] and Astedt held [poker card="qh"][poker card="jc"]. The board ran out [poker card="kc"][poker card="qc"][poker card="3c"][poker card="4d"][poker card="3d"] and ‘0asis’, the start of day chip leader, ended up as the runner-up which was good for $250,311. Once again, Niklas Astedt took down the GGPoker Super MILLION$, this time for $315,882, and became one of just three players to have won an event in both Season One and Season Two. Super MILLION$ Final Table Results (9/28) Niklas Astedt - $315,882 ‘0asis’ - $250,311 ‘d7777’ - $198,351 Chris Rudolph - $157,177 Damian Salas - $124,550 Rui Ferreira - $98,696 ‘RRomashka’ - $78,209 Chris Puetz - $61,974 Artur Martirosian - $49,109
  2. Stop us if you’ve heard this one before. Niklas Astedt, the former worldwide #1-ranked pro and one of the most decorated online poker players in history, captured this week’s GGPoker Super MILLION$ 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
  3. Gabi Livshitz eliminated five of the final six players - including one of the most dominant players in PocketFives history - on his way to victory in Event #17($400 PLOSSUS) of the 2021 World Series of Poker Online on GGPoker Sunday night to earn his first WSOP bracelet and a six-figure score. Having arrived at the final table with just a touch more than 10 big blinds, Shihhui Wang never managed to escape the danger zone. With blinds at 300,000/600,000, Livshitz raised to 1,200,000 holding [poker card="jc"][poker card="ts"][poker card="9d"][poker card="8h"] from middle position before Wang jammed for 3,933,594 from the cutoff with [poker card="ac"][poker card="qc"][poker card="qd"][poker card="7c"]. The [poker card="th"][poker card="8s"][poker card="4h"] flop gave Livshitz two pair and wrap. The turn was the [poker card="6d"] and the [poker card="9s"] river gave Livshitz a straight to bust Wang in seventh. Livshitz had to wait nearly 25 minutes to find his second victim. From the button, Livshitz opened to 1,400,000 and then called when Lasse Enojarvi raised to 5,250,000 from the button. The flop came [poker card="kd"][poker card="jh"][poker card="9s"] and Livshitz checked. Enojarvi moved all in for 4,135,424 and Livshitz called. Enojarvi tabled [poker card="ad"][poker card="ah"][poker card="9d"][poker card="2d"] but got bad news when Livshitz showed [poker card="ks"][poker card="qh"][poker card="th"][poker card="6s"] for a flopped straight. Neither the [poker card="7h"] turn nor the [poker card="tc"] river were any help and Enojarvi was out in sixth place. Five-handed play carried on for 37 minutes before Livshitz ended yet another player's tournament. Former #1-ranked PocketFiver Niklas Astedt raised to 3,500,000 and Livshitz called from the big blind. The flop came [poker card="8s"][poker card="5s"][poker card="3d"] and Livshitz bet 7,718,750 and Astedt called all in for his last 6,539,398. Livshitz showed [poker card="kh"][poker card="qh"][poker card="3c"][poker card="2s"] which gave him a slight lead over Astedt who tabled [poker card="ah"][poker card="ks"][poker card="th"][poker card="9h"]. The [poker card="qd"] turn gave Livshitz two pair and when the [poker card="7h"] river completed the board, Astedt was shown the exit in fifth place. With Livshitz holding nearly half of the chips in play, the final four players played for 40 minutes without sending anybody home. That all ended after a pre-flop raising war between the two shortest remaining stacks. First to act, Idris Ambraisse raised to 2,400,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="ah"][poker card="6c"][poker card="6s"]. Yuri Suvorov bumped it up to 8,400,000 from Ambraisse's immediate left with [poker card="as"][poker card="qh"][poker card="2h"][poker card="2s"]. Livshitz and Shengchao Zhu both folded and Ambraisse moved all in for 24,512,632 and after a full minute of tanking, Suvorov called. The board ran out [poker card="ts"][poker card="4s"][poker card="3h"][poker card="9c"][poker card="js"] to give Suvorov the nut flush and eliminate Amrbaisse in fourth. Over the next 30 minutes of three-handed action, Suvorov took the chip lead from Livshitz but eventually conceded it back, setting up Livshitz to resume his duties as table captain. Suvorov conceded hi button and Livshitz limped from the small blind before Zhu raised to 4,800,00 from the big blind. Livshitz popped it up back up to 14,400,000 and Zhu called. The flop came [poker card="jd"][poker card="5c"][poker card="5d"] and Livshitz potted it to 29,400,000 with Zhu holding 33,145,442. Zhu moved all in and Livshitz called. Zhu showed [poker card="kd"][poker card="ks"][poker card="td"][poker card="ts"] but Livshitz turned over [poker card="ad"][poker card="ah"][poker card="9c"][poker card="9s"]. Neither the [poker card="6s"] turn or the [poker card="3h"] river changed anything and Zhu was gone in third place. Livshitz started heads up play against Suvorov with 65% of the chips in play. The two played for just four minutes before Livshitz put the finishing touches on a dominating performance. Suvorov raised to 4,800,000 and Livshitz re-raised to 14,400,000 and Suvorov called. After the [poker card="kd"][poker card="7h"][poker card="3c"] flop, Livshitz bet 17,520,000 and Suvorov called all in. Livshitz was ahead with [poker card="ad"][poker card="as"][poker card="6h"][poker card="3s"] while Suvorov was hoping for his [poker card="jd"][poker card="js"][poker card="8d"][poker card="8s"] holding to improve. The turn was the [poker card="7c"] and the river was the [poker card="7s"] to eliminate Suvorov in runner-up position and give Livshitz his first WSOP bracelet and $152,165.44. The event attracted a total of 4,576 entries from 3,486 unique players to build a total prize pool of $1,738,880 to easily surpass the $1,000,000 guarantee. Final Table Payouts Gabi Livshitz - $152,165.44 Yuri Suvorov - $89,236.81 Shengchao Zhu - $52,317.61 Idris Ambraisse - $43,949.86 Niklas Astedt - $35,065.02 Lasse Enojarvi - $19,673.48 Shihhui Wang - $22,107.05
