Ottomar Ladva Wins MILLIONS Online #11 6-Max Super High Roller ($525,089)
Ottomar Ladva has been a well-known poker player in his home country in Estonia for quite some time and during the past year has made a name for himself on an international level. He proved again last night that he can play with the best of them by shipping the MILLIONS Online #11 6-Max Super High Roller for $525,089.
Ladva's huge win is even more impressive considering he qualified in for just a fraction of the $25,500 buy-in. Before getting into the action on Day 1, Ladva won a $530 feeder tournament to a $2,650 direct satellite. He then won the satellite before shipping the Super High Roller last night for a sick return!
The Super High Roller was a two-day event featuring $1,000,000 guarantee. The guarantee was smashed with the event attracting 70 entrants on Day 1 to generate a huge $1,750,000 prize pool.
Day 2, which was broadcasted live on the partypokerTV Twitch and YouTube channels, began last night with just 11 hopefuls remaining, each guaranteed a min-cash of $59,322 which both Samuel Vousden and Rok Gostisa collected for finishing in 10th and 11th places respectively.
Giuseppe Iadisernia and Aliaksei Boika were eliminated in eighth and ninth places for $66,239 to set-up a star-studded seven-max final table.
Justin Bonomo kicked off the final table in the captain's chair with Day 2 chip leader Brock Wilson and eventual winner Ladva not too far behind.
Ami Barer (seventh - $75,781) held the shortest stack and was the first player to hit the rail at the final table when his suited big slick didn't win a flip against the ladies held by Bujtas Laszlo.
Laszlo took over the chip lead before he ousted Wilson (sixth - $90,589) in a big pot to extend it further. Wilson, holding tens, rivered a set and called off his stack only to get coolered with Laszlo, holding six-four, having the nuts with a straight.
Latvian Aleksejs Ponakovs, waiving an Estonian flag at partypoker, was the next to go. He jammed his short stack of eight big blinds from the small blind with nine-eight and didn't get there against the jack-ten held by Ladva in the big blind to hit the rail in fifth place for $114,839.
Shortly after, Bonomo doubled against Laszlo to take the chip lead. The lead temporarily went over to Ladva but Bonomo took it back while sending Laszlo packing in fourth place for $152,275 when his treys won a flip against ace-ten.
Bonomo extended his lead further before he eliminated the short-stacked partypoker Ambassador Jason Koon in third place for $212,835 when his seven-six suited nailed a flush against Koon's queen-five.
Bonomo began the heads-up action with a 2:1 chip advantage against Ladva. Ladva battled and eventually turned the tables to hold a 2:1 chip advantage himself against one of the most accomplished players in poker.
The final hand witnessed both players getting it in with top pair on the turn. Bonomo held queen-jack which also gave him an open-ended straight draw but he was behind the ace-jack suited held by Ladva. Ladva also counterfeited some of Bonomo's potential outs with a flush draw. A blank hit the river and Bonomo was ousted in second place for $327,468.

Marius Gierse Leads Final 27 in the MILLIONS Online #13 Knockout
The MILLIONS Online #13 Knockout kicked off the first of its two days yesterday with 156 entrants getting into the action in this $1,600 buy-in event.
Day 1 ended with just 27 players remaining, each of which are guaranteed a min-cash of $1,763 plus any bounties collected. Those that made it to Day 2 will benefit from $14,000 in added value with the buy-ins not surpassing the generous $250,000 guarantee.
Day 2 will begin today, Feb. 25 at 7:05 p.m. GMT (2:05 p.m. EST) with blinds at 35,000/70,000 and an ante of 8,750.
Marius Gierse will kick the action off with the chip leading stack of 18,238,130 with Pedro Madiera (17,924,952) and Samuel Vousden (16,708,712) not to far behind. Also bagging eight-figure stacks into Day 2 were Robert Svedin (10,427,622) and Patrick Hyllegaard Pedersen (10,124,933).
Six-Max Action Begins Today!
Two big six-max tournaments kick off the first of their two days today at 7:05 p.m. GMT (2:05 p.m. EST).
Both events have identical structures with players starting off with 1 million in chips and blinds increasing every 20 minutes. The first day will end in both tournaments when players are in the money with Day 2 resuming on Friday, Feb. 26 at 7:05 p.m. GMT (2:05 p.m. EST).
The only difference in the two events is the buy-ins and the guarantees. The MILLIONS Online #14 6-Max boasts a $300,000 guarantee for a $3,200 buy-in while the MILLIONS Online #14 Mini 6-Max features a $50,000 guarantee for a $320 buy-in.
Of course, there is still plenty of time to qualify for both of these events for pennies on the dollar via satellites at partypoker.
