For the last 10 days the poker world has had its attention on the city of Barcelona as the first partypoker LIVE season came to a conclusion with the partypoker MILLIONS Grand Final. The final table played out on Sunday with some of the most dominant tournament players in the world battling it out for one of three seven-figure scores and in the end it was Canadian Pascal Lefrancois that overcame a stacked final table to walk away with €1.7 million and yet another major title. With four players holding over 100 big blinds at the start of the day, it took 4.5 hours before the first bustout. Down to just about eight big blinds, Thomas Boivin moved all in from UTG and Stephen Chidwick called from the small blind. Boivin showed [poker card="ah"][poker card="3h"] and needed some help after seeing Chidwick tabled [poker card="jc"][poker card="jd"]. The [poker card="7s"][poker card="5s"][poker card="3s"] flop gave him a couple of extra outs, but the [poker card="6c"] turn and [poker card="td"] river were both bricks and Boivin was out in eighth place. It took just a couple of minutes for the next elimination. Davidi Kitai, who came into the final table with the chance to be the first person to own a World Series of Poker bracelet, a World Poker Tour title, a European Poker Tour championship and a partypoker MILLIONS victory, moved his seven big blind stack all in from UTG and Diogo Veiga called from the small blind. Kitai showed [poker card="as"][poker card="jd"] and got great news when Veiga showed [poker card="ah"][poker card="4c"] but the [poker card="kc"][poker card="6h"][poker card="4d"] flop changed everything. Kitai was unable to catch up after the [poker card="8d"] turn or [poker card="td"] river and was out in seventh place. Veiga's night didn't last much longer. An hour after taking out Kitai, Veiga found himself on the bad side of a clash with Chidwick. After Chidwick raised to 10,000,000 from the cutoff, Veiga re-raised to 39,000,000 from the small blind. Chidwick called and the two players saw the [poker card="ah"][poker card="8s"][poker card="3d"] flop. Veiga checked, Chidwick bet 20,000,000 and Veiga moved all in for 84,000,000 more. Chidwick called and showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="3c"] for top and bottom pair while Chidwick was behind with [poker card="ac"][poker card="9c"]. The turn was the [poker card="jh"] keeping Veiga ahead but the [poker card="js"] river paired the board and gave Chidwick the pot, eliminating Veiga in sixth. Jan-Eric Schwippert started the day third in chips, but was unable to weather the storm and fell victim to Adam Owen a number of times before seeing Owen send him off for good. From the cutoff, Owen raised to to 16,000,000 before Schwippert moved all in for 136,000,000 from the big blind. Owen called and showed [poker card="7d"][poker card="7h"] which put him ahead of Schwippert's [poker card="ac"][poker card="9c"]. The board ran out [poker card="js"][poker card="6d"][poker card="5h"][poker card="jh"][poker card="qs"] and Schwippert was eliminated. The final four players battled for another two hours before the next player was sent packing. Action folded to Dominik Nitsche in the small blind and he moved all in for 71,000,000 and Lefrancois called from the big blind. Nitsche found himself slightly ahead with [poker card="ks"][poker card="6c"] over Lefrancois' [poker card="kd"][poker card="3c"]. The [poker card="ts"][poker card="4s"][poker card="2c"] flop was harmless, but the [poker card="5c"] turn gave Lefrancois an open-ended straight draw. Nitsche could only shake his head and pack up his things as the [poker card="ac"] river completed the draw to eliminate him in fourth place. Ten minutes later, Chidwick suffered a similar fate. Lefrancois called from the button, Owen folded the small blind and Chidwick moved all in from the big blind for 94,000,000. Lefrancois called and showed [poker card="ks"][poker card="ts"] which put him behind Chidwick's [poker card="ah"][poker card="7c"]. The [poker card="kh"][poker card="9s"][poker card="8d"] flop moved Lefrancois into the lead and he maintained that position after the [poker card="5d"] turn and [poker card="8c"] river to bust Chidwick in third. Heads-up play began with Lefrancois holding 65% of the chips in play. Over the first 45 minutes of heads-up play, Owen chipped away at the lead and eventually took the lead for himself only to see Lefrancois return the favor before putting an end to the tournament. Owen raised to 38,000,000 and Lefrancois responded by three-betting to 105,000,000. Owen continued to apply pressure and moved all in for 451,000,000 and Lefrancois called. Owen turned over [poker card="as"][poker card="ts"] but grimaced as Lefrancois had him out-pipped with [poker card="ad"][poker card="jd"]. The [poker card="qc"][poker card="5c"][poker card="5d"] flop gave Owen some hope, but the [poker card="3s"] turn and [poker card="7d"] river offered no relief and gave Lefrancois the final pot of the tournament, the MILLIONS Grand Final title and a cool €1.7 million to with it all. Final Table Payouts Pascal Lefrancois - €1,700,000 Adam Owen -€1,300,000 Stephen Chidwick - €1,000,000 Dominik Nitsche - €800,000 Jan-Eric Schwippert - €602,500 Diogo Veiga - €450,000 Davidi Kitai - €325,000 Thomas Boivin - €225,000
