Germany’s Pascal Hartmann entered Tuesday’s GGPoker Super MILLION$ final table near the very bottom of the chip counts but after chipping up and eliminating each of his final five opponents, the high-stakes superstar emerged as this week’s winner and took home the $454,907 first-place prize. Hartmann has been a consistent presence in the $10K Super MILLION$ field having participated in 31 of the 32 times the tournament has been run. This was his tenth in-the-money finish and fourth final table, the result of which has sent him into the tournament series top 10 money earners. At the start of the day, Hartmann was in eighth place with roughly 25 big blinds and facing off against another talent-packed final table that included online poker legend Isaac Baron, Ami Barer, and 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event runner-up Dario Sammartino. Despite the hurdles in front of him, Hartmann managed to continually pick up big hands in key spots which lifted him to victory. Even though the chips were flying in the first ninety minutes of the final table, it was slow going in terms of players hitting the rail. Finally, a short-stacked Aliakesei Boika shipped his final nine big blinds in with [poker card="7c"][poker card="7d"] and ran into Russia’s ‘RRomashka’s [poker card="tc"][poker card="td"]. Dominated by the pair as well as both suits, the board ran out [poker card="9c"][poker card="6c"][poker card="2h"][poker card="5c"][poker card="4c"] provided a little drama as Boika had both straight and straight flush outs headed into the river. But the pocket tens held and Boika fell in ninth place for $56,864. Ami Barer exited in eighth place when his [poker card="qs"][poker card="qc"] failed to hold against Argentina’s ‘OnTheFlow’s [poker card="ad"][poker card="kc"] in a preflop clash. The board ran out [poker card="ah"][poker card="5s"][poker card="2c"][poker card="2s"][poker card="8s"] and Barer added $73,743 to his bankroll. Then, roughly thirty minutes later, Kyle Menard hit the rail in painful fashion. A short-stacked Sammartino moved all in under the gun with [poker card="qc"][poker card="jc"]. Looking to double up his own short stack, Menard called with his tournament on the line holding [poker card="kd"][poker card="ks"]. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="kh"][poker card="6h"] gave Menard middle set, but the [poker card="td"] turn turned the tide to Sammartino, hitting his gutshot straight draw. The [poker card="9h"] river was no help to Menard who exited in seventh place for $95,633. Soon after the second break, Hartmann and Baron clashed for the chip lead. Under the gun, Baron raised with [poker card="ah"][poker card="kc"]. It folded back to Hartmann in the big blind who three-bet with [poker card="qs"][poker card="qd"]. Baron quickly shoved the rest of his 30 big blind stack and Hartmann made the call. The [poker card="9c"][poker card="8s"][poker card="5d"][poker card="6d"][poker card="td"] board was clean for the pocket queens and Baron, who had won his previous Super MILLION$ final table appearance, settled for sixth place and $124,020. Two hands later Hartmann was back in action, this time against Sammartino. The fortunes had reversed for these two players as Sammartino entered the final table as the chip leader but with five left was sitting on fewer than 10 big blinds. From the hijack, Sammartino put in a big raise with [poker card="ah"][poker card="4c"], leaving himself with less than one big blind behind. On the button, Hartmann made the call with [poker card="jd"][poker card="js"]. The flop came [poker card="qs"][poker card="7d"][poker card="3c"] and Sammartino committed the rest of his chips, which Hartmann quickly called. Sammartino spiked the [poker card="ac"] on the turn and was in a perfect position to double up. But Hartmann spiked one of his two outs with the [poker card="jh"] river, sending Sammartino out in fifth for $160,834. Hartmann’s heater continued when ‘RRomashka’ shoved all-in with [poker card="3s"][poker card="3h"] and Hartmann woke up with [poker card="8h"][poker card="8s"]. Hartmann spikes a set on the turn leaving ‘RRomashka’ drawing dead to the river. The Russian finished in fourth place for $208,576, nearly doubling the amount of their previous earnings in the Super MILLION$. ‘OnTheFlow’ was the next to go. Now, the overwhelming chip leader, Hartmann shoved from the small blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="6d"] and ‘OnTheFlow’, with 13 big blinds, made his stand by calling all-in from the big blind with [poker card="kh"][poker card="th"]. The flop came [poker card="qc"][poker card="6s"][poker card="3d"] pairing Hartmann, but changing nothing. The turn was the [poker card="9c"], giving ‘OnTheFlow’ additional straight outs. But the river came the [poker card="4h"] and ‘OnTheFlow’ was out in third place for $270,490. Hartmann entered heads-up play against Ireland’s ‘Pluto The Doggo’ with a nearly 6-1 chip advantage. That grew to nearly 10-1 at one point but ‘Pluto The Doggo’, who was at their second Super MILLION$ final table in as many weeks, clawed their way back into the match by picking up a key pot or two and scoring a crucial double up. However, as it was demonstrated throughout the final table, it was Hartmann’s day. On the final hand, Hartmann called on the button with [poker card="kh"][poker card="6h"]. ‘Pluto The Doggo’ put in a three-bet with [poker card="jh"][poker card="5s"] and Hartmann came along. The flop came [poker card="9d"][poker card="3h"][poker card="2h"] and ‘Pluto The Doggo’ led out, Hartmann with the flush draw made the call. The turn was the [poker card="7d"] and ‘Pluto The Doggo’ stayed aggressive, leading again. Hartmann made the call. The river came the [poker card="5h"], pairing ‘Pluto The Doggo’ but giving Hartmann his flush. ‘Pluto The Doggo’ then checked and Hartmann shipped all-in. After taking some time, ‘Pluto The Doggo’ called off which sent him home as the runner-up. ‘Pluto The Doggo’ collected $350,782 for second place and brought his career Super MILLION$ total to just over $487,000.

Two big names in the poker world picked up their first and third bracelets on Sunday at the 2018 World Series of Poker. Both are regulars in Bobby’s Room, playing the highest stakes mixed games going. They’re both pretty good at tournaments too, as they proved today. Meanwhile, the Crazy Eights event played through another two starting flights, while the $365 PLO Giant starting flights end with a four-time bracelet winner as overall chip leader. Another $10K Championship kicked off too. Here’s everything you need to know from July 1. Phil Galfond Claims Bracelet #3 in $10K PLO 8 ($567,788) Legendary online cash game player and Run It Once founder Phil Galfond picked up his third WSOP bracelet on Sunday, taking down Event #60: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo Championship for a massive $567,788 score. Galfond has had quite a few weeks, what with the upcoming launch of his online site, the announcement that he’s expecting his first child with his wife Farah, and now another WSOP win for his incredible CV. "There's nothing like the first [bracelet], so that stands ahead," Galfond said afterwards. "It still feels really good, on par with the second. I just ran really hot at the right time. I ran bad all summer, so I was saving it up for now. Now, it's even.” Galfond defeated Michael McKenna heads-up for the title, after hitting a pair in all-in-pre pot. McKenna racks up another close call, having finished fourth in a $1,500 Razz event earlier this summer. Other notables to final table this one include Chad Power (4th - $168,725), Chris Lee (5th - $120,263), Marco Johnson (6th - $87,830), and David ‘ODB’ Baker (7th - $65,579). Galfond was facing a 2:1 chip deficit versus McKenna, but found a way to get it done. Galfond said he’ll now turn his attention back to the launch of Run It Once Poker. "It feels like we're almost there and finally I'll be free," he said. "But, I can only imagine there's going to be more work once we launch the poker site. I'd like to find a way to play more poker because I really miss it. But, Run it Once poker is going to be the first priority." Final Table Results: Phil Galfond - $567,788 Michael McKenna - $350,922 Ali Abduljabbar - $240,497 Chad Power - $168,275 Chris Lee - $120,263 Marco Johnson - $87,830 David “ODB” Baker - $65,579 Chase Steely - $50,086 Jean-Robert Bellande Wins First Bracelet in $5K 6-Max ($616,302) [caption id="attachment_619806" align="aligncenter" width="648"] JRB Wines and Dines with First Bracelet[/caption] Sunday started with a six-handed final table set in Event #58: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed. Jean-Robert Bellande led the survivors (see what we did there?), and he had a strategy coming in: https://twitter.com/BrokeLivingJRB/status/1013515157513781248 It wasn’t an outrageous call that ended it though. More like an easy one, when Dean Lyall shoved with ace-three off heads-up, and Bellande woke up with pocket queens which held. A similar story saw him bust Kacper Pyzara in sixth (ace-seven into Bellande’s pocket jacks). Eric Blair fell in fifth, followed by Tan Nguyen in fourth and Andrew Graham in third. Bellande began heads-up play with a 2:1 chip lead, and kept the pressure on before taking it down. “I had a blast,” Bellande said after his win. “I had so much fun during this tournament, not just winning but mixing it up. Six-handed is cool because you’re always in action. The guys were all fun. We just had a good time. Every day we just had a blast.” Final Table Results: Jean-Robert Bellande - $616,302 Dean Lyall - $380,595 Andrew Graham - $254,684 Tan Nguyen - $173,598 Eric Blair - $120,669 Kacper Pyzara - $85,570 Michael Mizrachi Leads PLO GIANT Well whaddaya know?
