Nolet The Man To Catch in the GGPoker Super MILLION$
The 47th edition of the GGPoker Super MILLION$ has reached the final table stage and one lucky player will walk away with almost $400,000 on May 4. Canada's Guillaume Nolet looks set to be that man because he enters the nine-handed final table in the envious position of chip leader.
Super MILLION$ Final Table Chip Counts
Some 184 players exchanged $10,300 for the chance to become the 47th Super MILLION$ champion, which left GGPoker nursing a $160,000 overlay. The top 20 finishers won a slice of the $2 million prize pool, with three-time Super MILLION$ champion Michael Addamo bursting the bubble.
A steady stream of eliminations followed, with Isaac Haxton's elimination in tenth place being the last exit of the evening.
Each of the nine finalists return to their seats at 6:00 p.m. BST on May 4 knowing they have locked up at least $61,387 for their efforts. Nolet, who won this event in October 2020, has his sights set on a much more substantial prize, and the ball is in his court at the restart.
Who will win this week's Super MILLION$? Find out right here
Aleks Ponakovs trails Nolet by less than five big blinds, so will fancy his chances of becoming the Super MILLION$ champion. This will be Ponakovs' sixth final table appearance, but he has never finished higher than second. Could that change today?
Ami Barer is already guaranteed a remarkable ROI in this event courtesy of winning his way in from a $108 satellite. Barer has four previous final tables under his belt, but none of them have resulted in a finish deeper than third. The Canadian star occupies third place when play resumes.
Super MILLION$ Final Table Payouts
Fourth place in the chip counts is Dario Sammartino, another Super MILLION$ regular who is yet to take down GGPoker's biggest weekly tournament. The former WSOP Main Event runner-up has more than 49 big blinds going into what is his fifth Super MILLION$ final table, and could see this as his best chance yet to secure top spot.
You find David Peters further down the chip counts, albeit with 41.2 big blinds in his stack. Peters is one of the world's best and most consistent tournament players, but the Super MILLION$ has been something of a nemesis. Peters has played in 45 of these events and has now cashed on 13 occasions. Remarkable, this is his first time at the Super MILLION$ final table, let us hope he makes it count.
Two-time Super MILLION$ champion Luke Reeves has reached what it is only his third final table and is gunning for an unbelievable record of three finals and three victories. Reeves has some work to do because his 29 big blind stack is only enough for sixth place when the first cards are pitched, but he is more than capable of turning his fortunes around.
High-stakes cash game pro Wiktor Malinowski recorded his 10th Super MILLION$ cash and his second final table birth in this event. Malinowski finished second on February 21, 2021 and scooped $349,222. He needs to win if he wants to surpass that impressive sum.
Yuri Dzivielevski is the man in eighth place when play gets underway; the Brazilian sits back down with a shade under 19 big blinds. Dzivielevski has been on something of a heater over the past couple of months in this event, finishing fourth, third, and taking down the whole shebang since February 21. Victory tonight looks unlikely, but stranger things have happened.
"judd trump" of China is another player in hot form having won three GG Spring Festival titles during April. They are now in the hunt for their first Super MILLION$ title afgter reaching their first final table in the tournament. They only have 10 big blinds in their stack, but are one double away from being able to make a real nuisance of themselves.
