  1. 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.

  2. Italy's Nicolo Molinelli must have liked what the wheel had to say in Event #81 (People's Choice Spin the Wheel). The format of Thursday's World Series of Poker Online event was left to the fate of the spin of the wheel. Once that wheel stopped spinning, the Six Max No Limit Hold'em Bounty format was chosen and Molinelli worked his way through a 1,925-entry field in the $600 buy-in event to win his first career WSOP bracelet and earn $243,415 with $99,216 coming from bounties alone. Michelle Shah only got to spend 24 minutes at the final table. Molinelli raised to 220,000 from the hijack before Shah moved all in from the cutoff for 1,810,581. Molinelli called and flipped over [poker card="ah"][poker card="qs"] and Shah discovered she was racing with [poker card="8d"][poker card="8h"]. The [poker card="as"][poker card="5h"][poker card="2s"] flop moved Molinelli in front and Shah found no help on the [poker card="6s"] turn or [poker card="5c"] river and was eliminated in ninth place. Thirty-five minutes later another race ended a second player's run. Lucas Hafner raised to 240,000 from the button with [poker card="as"][poker card="ks"] before Pavel Plusev re-raised to 1,800,000 with [poker card="5c"][poker card="5d"]. Hafner re-raised to 3,360,000 and Plesuv called all in. The [poker card="kh"][poker card="td"][poker card="9d"] flop put Hafner in front. The [poker card="kc"] turn left Plesuv needing a five on the river and when the [poker card="8s"] river completed the board, he was sent out in eighth. Molinelli had to wait another 30 minutes before finding his second victim of the night. Itai Drory raised to 280,000 from the cutoff and Molinelli decided to defend his big blind. The flop came [poker card="4d"][poker card="3c"][poker card="2s"] and Molinelli checked. Drory bet 217,425 and Molinelli called. The turn was the [poker card="qc"] and Molinelli checked again. Drory bet 518,000 and then called all in after Molinelli moved all in for 16,437,829. Drory showed [poker card="8c"][poker card="8s"] but Molinelli had turned top pair with [poker card="qs"][poker card="ts"]. The river was the [poker card="4h"] and Drory was out in seventh place. Kyle Menard raised to 280,000 from UTG before Sami Kelopuro moved all in from the cutoff for 3,424,452. Aleksandr Grishchuk called from the button for 1,600,388 and Menard got out of the way. Kelopuro tabled [poker card="ah"][poker card="qd"] while Grishchuk showed [poker card="jc"][poker card="jd"]. The [poker card="as"][poker card="qh"][poker card="6h"] flop moved Kelopuro well in frton. Neither the [poker card="9c"] or [poker card="th"] river changed anything and Grishchuk, a world-class chess champion, was eliminated in sixth. The final five players played for over an hour before losing a player. Kelopuro opened with a raise to 1,160,000 with [poker card="kc"][poker card="kh"] and action folded around to Menard in the big blind. Holding [poker card="ac"][poker card="qh"], Menard moved all in fro 11,250,432 and Kelopuro called off for 6,085,048. The board ran out [poker card="tc"][poker card="8c"][poker card="6c"][poker card="qc"][poker card="as"] to give Menard the nut flush and send Kelopuro to the rail in fifth place. Menard picked up another bounty a half-hour later in a blind versus blind scenario. Longyun Li moved all in from the small blind for 4,565,740 and Menard called from the big blind. Li turned over [poker card="ks"][poker card="6c"] which put him behind Menard's [poker card="as"][poker card="th"]. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="ad"][poker card="jh"] flop gave Menard a virtual lock on the hand. The [poker card="9d"] turn meant Li was drawing dead through the [poker card="5d"] river and was eliminated in fourth. Li's elimination was the last that Molinelli wasn't responsible for. Another 30 minutes passed before the Italian sent another opponent packing. Lukas Hafner was down to 5,091,376, Hafner shoved from the small blind with [poker card="kh"][poker card="4h"] only to have Molinelli wake up with [poker card="ac"][poker card="ah"] in the big blind. The board ran out [poker card="7d"][poker card="6h"][poker card="3d"][poker card="3h"][poker card="tc"] to give Molinelli a decent sweat before eliminating Hafner in third place. Heads-up play began with Molinelli holding a nine big blind lead and the pair battled for nearly an hour before Molinelli was able to put a bow on his final table performance. Menard opened with a raise to 900,000 holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="qc"] and Molinelli called wiht [poker card="kc"][poker card="8d"]. The [poker card="kd"][poker card="tc"][poker card="2h"] flop got Molinelli to check. Menard bet 600,000 and Molinelli raised to 1,885,000 and Menard called. The [poker card="7s"] turn was good enough for Molinelli to bet 2,175,000 and Menard called again. The river was the [poker card="9d"] and Molinelli checked. Menard moved all in for 6,708,172 and Molinenlli called to eliminate Menard in second and win his first career WSOP bracelet.
