The GGPoker Super MILLION$ final table is always a star-studded affair but this latest one, the 37th edition, is right up there with the toughest final table assembled in this event.
Super MILLION$ Final Table Chip Counts
|1||David Yan||New Zealand||5,344,087|
|8||Mikita Badziakouski||Costa Rica||1,411,901|
New Zealand’s David Yan is in superb form right now, and it is unsurprising to find his name at the top of the chip counts. Yan sits down at the Super MILLION$ final table armed with 5,344,087 chips and enjoys a 2.2 million chip advantage over the rest of the star-studded field.
Seventeen of Yan’s fellow GGPoker players will be cheering on the Kiwi as he attempts to go one better than his runner-up finish on January 24. Yan sold 33.3% of himself at 1.15 markup to 17 investors via the free in-built staking software.
Brazilian Yuri Dzivielevski is Yan closest rival when it comes to chips; Dzivielevski sits down with 3,015,357 chips. This is the third time we have seen Dzivielevski at a Super MILLION$ final table, although he’s not been in the limelight since September 13 when he finished fifth for $185,350, his best result in this tournament.

Astedt On Course For $2 Million in Super MILLION$ Earnings
Niklas Astedt hopes this is the Super MILLION$ where he finally gets the monkey off his back and manages to walk away as the victor. The talented Swede has played all but one of the 37 Super MILLION$ tournament to date, has cashed in 16 of those and this is his 10th final table. Astedt has finished second twice in this event, the latest runner-up finish coming on January 3 where he banked $346,104. Finishing fourth today would see Astedt’s Super MILLION$ earning surpass the $2 million mark, which is nothing short of incredible.
High stakes cash game specialist Wiktor Malinowski has reached his first Super MILLION$ final table, although this is his third consecutive in the money finish. Malinowski has cashed six times in this event but has always fallen short of the final table until now. He returns to the fray with 2,281,656 chips and has a realistic chance of becoming the tournament’s champion.
The last time we saw Canada’s Timothy Nuter at a Super MILLION$ final table was back on November 1, 2020. Nuter’s time under the spotlight was short-lived as he fell in eighth-place and had to make do with a $54,358 payout. The Canadian sits down this evening with 2,218,861 chips, enough for the middle of the pack. Surely he’ll go deeper than eighth place this time around.
Ferrariman Hopes to Turn $1,000 Satellite Into Enough for a Ferrari!
Sixth-place “Ferrariman” of Austria won their Super MILLION$ seat via a $1,000 satellite, so is guaranteed to enjoy a substantial ROI regardless of their finishing position. This is only their second appearance in this mammoth-sized event and their first cash. They may be in sixth-place at the restart, but they have 2,206,012 chips in their arsenal. The chip counts are extremely tight this week, which means anything can happen.
Sam Greenwood occupies seventh place right now, courtesy of his 1,981,850 chips. Greenwood is a phenomenal poker tournament player, but it’s fair to say the Super MILLIONS has been his nemesis tournament. Four cashes from 27 appearances have resulted in $102,240 in winnings. Today marks Greenwood’s first final table appearance in this event. Let’s hope he makes it count.
partypoker-sponsored pro Mikita Badziakouski is another player making his first final appearance in this event. His record in the biggest tournaments speaks for itself, but we know that anything but finishing in first-place isn’t good enough for the man from Belarus.
Bringing up the rear is Hungary’s “Syntropy”, who only recently joined the site. They have only two previous cashes at GGPoker, both min-cashes in a $210 and $525 bounty events. Syntropy won their Super MILLION$ seat via a $1,000 satellite and are guaranteed at least $56,610 for their efforts. Imagine if the Hungarian went all the way and took down the tournament for $452,885.
