Yan Leads HRW 18: Super MILLION$ Final Table

David Yan

The HRW 18: $10,300 Super MILLION$ Main Event was the highlight of the High Roller Week festival at GGPoker and it didn't disappoint with some of the biggest names in poker joining in on the action.

The $5 million guarantee slapped on this two-day event was smashed with the tournament attracting 581 entrants including 356 re-entries to generate a $5,810,000 prize pool.

New Zealand's David Yan bagged the chip lead with a stack of 10,941,325. Yan was near the top of the chip counts most of the day.

While Yan isn't a household name, many of the others that will appear at the final table when the action resumes on Tuesday, Nov. 17 at 6 p.m. GMT including Davidi Kitai, Niklas Astedt, Michael Watson, Aleksei "JokerFace" Barkov, Eelis Parssinen, and Aleks Ponakovs.

Parssinen's appearance at the final table is especially impressive as he was also battling it out at the final table in a similar event last week when he took second place in the HRW 2: $10,300 Super MILLION$ for $472,222.
