A total of 291 players signed up for GGPoker's weekly key event and in the end, it was Canada's Kyle Menard who claimed the top spot to win $628,892 in his first Super MILLION$ appearance.

With the victory, Menard followed up to another massive six-figure score just days ago when he took third in the Battle of Malta #6: $5,250 High Roller Championship for a whopping $235,088. In total, the Canadian has eclipsed the seven-figure mark in tournament earnings at GGPoker with $1,012,507 and counting.

The final table lasted a little over 2 hours and 10 minutes from beginning to end, making it a short but exciting affair. The likes of Stephen Chidwick, "PidrPan" and "goldfish55" all had to depart in quick succession, while Timothy Adams, who made his first-ever Super MILLION$ final table, ended up in fifth place.

Canada's Philippe D'Auteuil took full advantage of GGPoker's unique staking feature and sold 50% of his action at a mark-up of 1.13. Ami Barer, who bought all 50% of his countryman's action, will see a sweet return on his investment as D'Auteuil cashed for a massive $354,582.

Menard overcame PLO-specialist Eelis Parssinen heads-up over the course of just three hands. In the final hand, Menard bet all three streets including a jam on the river on a queen-high board after opening the action on the button with queen-jack. Parssinen called all the way with queen-seven and his weak kicker came into play to give Menard the victory.

Despite missing out on the win, Parssinen more than doubled the $378,547 in career tournament earnings at GGPoker with second place worth $472,222.
