  1. It looked like Michael Addamo was going to cruise to his fifth GGPoker Super MILLION$ title in record time. However, after dominating the bulk of the final table, Addamo clashed with satellite winner ‘Hightroler’ in an hour-long heads-up match that saw the Super MILLION$ newcomer battle back from multiple massive chip deficits to take out the poker superstar and take home the title and the $420,536 first-place prize. It helped that ‘Hightroler’ started the final table with a healthy chip lead. But as is customary at Super MILLION$ final tables, no one makes it to the end without going through some top-tier talent. This week, joining ‘Hightroler’ and Addamo was Russia’s Anatoly Filatov, Samuel Vousden, and two-time Super MILLION$ champ Joakim Andersson. It was an early exit for Belarusian grinder Dmitry Yurasov, who started the day on the short stack. With the blinds at 25,000/50,000 (6,000 ante), Yurasov opened to 100,000 from middle position with [poker card="td"][poker card="th"]. The action folded to Joakim Andersson in the big blind, who defended with [poker card="ah"][poker card="8h"] and just barely had Yurasov covered. When the flop came [poker card="qh"][poker card="tc"][poker card="9h"], there was no getting away for either player. Andersson checked his nut flush draw over to Yurasov who put out a tiny bet with his set of tens. Andersson countered with a shove and Yurasov snap-called. The turn was the [poker card="js"], bringing Andersson a straight. The [poker card="ad"] on the river sent Yurasov home in ninth place for $52,567. A few hands later, ‘AreYouAhead’ had his question answered by Andersson, and they didn’t like what it was. From middle position, ‘AreYouAhead’ opened to 110,000 holding [poker card="as"][poker card="kh"] and was called by Anatoly Filatov in the cutoff with [poker card="5d"][poker card="5h"]. When it folded to Andersson, once again in the big blind, he raised it up to 435,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="ad"]. After a short tank, ‘AreYouAhead’ moved all-in for another 1.5 million and after Filatov folded, Andersson called for slightly less. The board ran out [poker card="ks"][poker card="qs"][poker card="2c"][poker card="th"][poker card="4d"] shipping the pot to Andersson and leaving ‘AreYouAhead’ with two big blinds. Two hands later, they were out in eighth for $68,171. The final seven players settled in as nearly two levels passed without an elimination. With the blinds at 35,000/70,000 (8,500 ante) Addamo, who had surged into the chip lead, opened from the cutoff to 140,000 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="tc"]. In the big blind, Samuel Vousden looked down at [poker card="ah"][poker card="4d"] and with 20 big blinds remaining, moved all-in. Addamo quickly called with the dominating hand and hit top pair on the [poker card="ts"][poker card="5c"][poker card="2c"] flop. Vousden was looking for a three to hit the gutshot straight, but the turn came [poker card="8d"] and the river the [poker card="4s"] sending Vousden out in seventh for $88,407. A few hands later, Andersson found himself short and moved all-in from under the gun with the [poker card="kd"][poker card="qs"]. It folded to Filatov in the small blind and he made the call with his [poker card="ad"][poker card="jh"]. The [poker card="ah"][poker card="6d"][poker card="3d"] flop put Filatov in control and when the turn came the [poker card="7s"], Andersson was drawing dead to the [poker card="9d"] river. Andersson’s sixth place finish and latest Super MILLION$ cash was good for $114,649. By this point, Addamo’s chip lead was enormous, having four times that of his next competitor. Raising with impunity, with the blinds at 40,000/80,000 (10,000 ante) Addamo made it 160,000 with the worst hand in poker, [poker card="7d"][poker card="2c"]. In the small blind ‘d7777’, three-bet shoved his final four big blind with [poker card="jh"][poker card="td"] and when it got back to Addamo he called with the seven-duece. The flop came [poker card="7s"][poker card="5h"][poker card="4s"], giving Addamo the lead and ‘d7777’ never caught up as the turn came the [poker card="8h"] and the river [poker card="7h"]. ‘d7777’, eliminated in fifth place, earned $148,682 for the deep run. Addamo kept up the aggression, in the next level with blinds 50,000/100,000, he opened to 200,000 with [poker card="qc"][poker card="4h"]. When the action hit Chris Frank in the small blind with just six big blinds left, he shipped his stack holding the [poker card="ah"][poker card="3s"]. With it being just four more big blinds, Addamo made the call. The [poker card="js"][poker card="7h"][poker card="3c"] flop kept Frank ahead, and the [poker card="ks"] turn had it looking like Addamo might actually lose a hand. But Addamo spiked the [poker card="qs"] on the river and Frank was felted in fourth for $192,817. At this point, FIlatov had 3 million, ‘Hightroler’ had 2.5 million and Addamo had more than 14 million. Addamo was continuing his aggressive ways and when ‘Hightroler’ folded their button, Addamo open-shipped on Filatov with the [poker card="ks"][poker card="5s"]. Filatov didn’t waste any time snap-calling with his [poker card="ad"][poker card="js"]. But as had been the theme of the day, Addamo caught his card on the [poker card="kc"][poker card="7c"][poker card="2h"] flop. The [poker card="2s"] turn and the [poker card="8d"] river changed nothing and Filatov ended up in third place for $250,052. While Addamo seemingly wrecked the rest of the final table, ‘Hightroler’ was determined to put up a fight. The heads-up battle wore on, and 45 minutes in, ‘Hightroler’ wrestled the chip lead away from Addamo building a three-to-one lead. But Addamo mounted a comeback of his own, doubling and doubling again. With the stack effectively even, the most important hand of the tournament took place. With the blinds up to 100,000/200,000 (25,000) ’Hightroler’ raised from button to 400,000 with [poker card="8c"][poker card="8d"], with a small chip lead, Addamo three-bet to 1.5 million with his [poker card="ac"][poker card="tc"]. ‘Hightroler’ four-bet shipped his stack and Addamo called for the win. The flop came [poker card="ah"][poker card="9h"][poker card="8s"], giving Addamo top pair but bringing a set for ‘Hightroler’, the turn was the [poker card="3c"] and the river was the [poker card="8h"], giving ‘Hightroler’ quads for good measure. After the hand, Addamo was down to six big blinds and ‘Hightroler’ had the biggest chip lead of the tournament. Two hands later, it was all over, the pair were all in preflop. Addamo with the [poker card="jh"][poker card="8h"] and ‘Hightroler’ holding [poker card="8c"][poker card="4c"]. The board ran out [poker card="qc"][poker card="5d"][poker card="2c"][poker card="4h"][poker card="3h"] shipping ‘Hightroler’ the pot and the win. Addamo just missed out on his fifth Super MILLION$ victory, instead settling for second place and $324,278. ‘Hightroler’ turned his $525 satellite victory into his first Super MILLION title and the $420,536 first-place prize.

  2. It was a dominating day for Michael Addamo at the final table of this week’s GGPoker Super MILLION$ as he eliminated every single player at the table en route to his record-best fourth career Super MILLION$ title and the $325,957 first-place prize. All early signs pointed to Addamo walking away with the win, from his overwhelming chip lead at the start of the day to the frequency that he woke up with premium starting hands. He went wire-to-wire and was never really in danger of losing his lead despite being up against a lineup of online poker’s elite including Ludovic Geilich, Isaac Haxton, Bert Stevens, and the current #1-ranked player in the world Yuri Dzivielevski. A little more than twenty minutes into the final table, with the blinds at 25,000/50,000 (6,000 ante), Addamo got it started when he opened to 100,000 with [poker card="jd"][poker card="js"]. When the action folded to Aleks Ponakovs in the hijack with [poker card="td"][poker card="th"] he moved all-in for more than 1.1 million which Addamo quickly called. The flop came [poker card="7h"][poker card="8h"][poker card="9d"] bringing Ponskovs additional open-ended straight outs. However, the turn was the [poker card="7c"] and the river came the [poker card="7d"] giving Addamo a full house and sending Ponakovs out in ninth place with a $45,100 payday. The very next hand, Addamo again opened for 100,000 with [poker card="ks"][poker card="kh"]. ‘Aunty_Ninja’ three-bet to 250,000 holding the [poker card="jh"][poker card="jc"] and Ludovic Geilich (playing under his screen name ‘Gr4vyB04t’) four-bet to 518,675 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="kc"], leaving himself just two big blinds behind. Action quickly returned to Addamo who moved all-in, forcing ‘Aunty_Ninja’ to fold her pocket jacks. The board ran out [poker card="th"][poker card="9c"][poker card="3c"][poker card="2s"][poker card="2h"] giving Addamo’s pocket kings the pot as Geilich hit the rail in eighth place for $57,750. Addamo made it three victims in a row when on the next hand it folded to former #1-ranked Bert Stevens in the small blind with [poker card="qd"][poker card="jd"] and he moved all-in for 12 big blinds. Addamo picked up [poker card="kh"][poker card="qh"] in the big blind and made the call. The flop came [poker card="8h"][poker card="5d"][poker card="4d"] giving Stevens some life by picking up a flush draw. The turn was the [poker card="8s"], keeping Addamo’s king-high in the lead and when the [poker card="3h"] river hit, Addamo completed the three-hand hat trick and sent Stevens home in seventh place for $73,948. With the blinds at 30,000/60,000 (7,500 ante) the current #1-ranked online pro in the world, Brazil’s Yuri Dzivielevski, opened to 120,00 on the button with [poker card="js"][poker card="jc"]. After Addamo folded his small blind, New Zealand’s ‘Aunty_Ninja’ moved all-in for more than 1.1 million holding [poker card="ad"][poker card="kh"] and Dzivielevski, with slightly fewer chips, made the call. The flop came [poker card="8h"][poker card="5h"][poker card="4s"], keeping Dzivielevski’s pocket jacks as the favorite. The turn was the [poker card="6h"], giving ‘Aunty_Ninja’ additional flush outs to go with her overcards. But the river came the [poker card="8c"] and Dzivielevski found a much-needed double up while ‘Aunty_Ninja’ was left crippled. Two hands later ‘Aunty_Ninja’ was out of the tournament in sixth place for $94,689 when she moved all-in with her final big blind with [poker card="8c"][poker card="3c"] against two players, one of which was Addamo who made a king-high flush on the river. In the next level, 40,000/80,000 (10,000 ante), Addamo again went to battle with a premium hand. He opened from under the gun to 160,000 with [poker card="jd"][poker card="jc"] and Francisco Benitez quickly shipped his remaining ten big blinds with [poker card="ks"][poker card="qc"]. Holding a massive chip lead still, Addamo made the call and there was little drama as the board ran out [poker card="4c"][poker card="4h"][poker card="3s"][poker card="8h"][poker card="ac"] shipping another pot to Addamo and eliminating Benitez in fifth place for $121,247 Two orbits later, down to four players, the action folded to Addamo in the small blind with [poker card="9c"][poker card="9h"] and he put in a raise to 280,000. In the big blind, former Super MILLION$ champ Isaac Haxton picked up [poker card="ad"][poker card="jc"] and decided to make a stand, shipping all-in for just over 2.6 million in chips. It didn’t take but a second for Addamo to make the call, putting Haxton at risk. The [poker card="ks"][poker card="8h"][poker card="3h"] flop kept Addamo in the lead. The turn was the [poker card="5h"], taking away some outs for Haxton. The river was the [poker card="4h"] giving Addamo the flush and sending Haxton, who started the day second in chips, out in fourth which was good for $155,254. After that hand, Addamo climbed to over 12 million in chips and had a roughly 6:1 advantage over second-place Dzivielevski. ‘judd trump’ sat in third place, with only three big blinds. But ‘judd trump’ found a double. And then another. Eventually, the Super MILLION$ grinder climbed into second place as Dzivielevski dwindled. Eventually, with blinds at 60,000/120,000 (15,000 ante), Addamo opened the button to 240,000 and after ‘judd trump’ folded his small blind, Dzivielevski defended holding [poker card="jd"][poker card="ts"]. Dzivielevski checked it to Addamo on the [poker card="qh"][poker card="5c"][poker card="2d"] flop and after Addamo min-bet, Dzivielevski made the call. The turn was the [poker card="7d"] and both players checked. The river was the [poker card="jc"] and once Dzivielevski checked to Addamo, the chip leader shoved all-in putting Dzivielevski to the test for the rest of his chips. Dzivielevski took a few moments but eventually made the call only to see his hand dominated. Dzivielevski exited in third place and added another $198,800 to his more than $13.6 million in career online earnings. Addamo started heads-up play with a sizable lead, and over the course of twenty minutes continued to chip away at ‘judd trump’s stack. Eventually, with the blinds up to 70,000/140,000 (17,500 ante), Addamo opened to [poker card="ah"][poker card="qc"] on the button and with fewer than 15 big blinds left, ‘judd trump’ shipped his stack holding [poker card="5d"][poker card="5h"]. Addamo snap-called and the pair watched as the flop came [poker card="js"][poker card="tc"][poker card="9c"], giving Addamo a whole host of outs. The [poker card="8h"] turn was one of them, leaving ‘judd trump’ drawing dead to a chop. But the river was the [poker card="kh"] and Addamo completed the clean sweep of the final table. ‘judd trump’ settled for second place and $254,559. Addamo scored $325,957 for first place and becomes the first player to reach four Super MILLION$ titles as well as the only player to have won a title in both Season One and Season Two.
