Stakers Set To Win Big in the Latest GGPoker Super MILLION$
Table Of Contents
The in-built staking software at GGPoker is popular, but there may be a surge in its usage following today's $10,300 Super MILLION$ final table. Why? Because two of the biggest stacks at the final table sold their action and are set to earn their stakes a nice sum of cash, especially if finish in the top four places where six-figure scores await.
Only nine of the 118 starters remain in contention for the title and the largest slice of the $1,180,000 prize pool. Will one of the staked players walk away with the $256,419 top prize? Their investors certainly hope so.

Canada's Philippe D'Auteuil (lead image) is the man to catch going into the latest edition of the GGPoker Super MILLION$ final table. D'Auteuil does not play many of these events although he has a solid track record in them. To date, the Canadian has more than $485,000 in winnings thanks, in part, to a brace of final table appearances, not including this one. D'Auteuil sits down with 2,562,517 chips or 85 big blinds.
Former soccer star Mario Mosboeck has reached his fifth career Super MILLION$ final table and is hoping to end the night with his first title. Mosboeck, who returns with a 2,399,767 stack (80 big blinds), sold 75% of his action at 1.03 markup. S Melhui bought 25% of the stake with "La-Paloma69" investing in a 20% cut. Should Mosboeck win, S Melhui will receive almost $38,500 just for watching on the sidelines!
Amazingly, S Melhui also has 25% of Oliver Weis' action, with Weis returning in third place courtesy of his 1,689,867 stack (56 big blinds). It seems if you want to go deep in the Super MILLION$, you need S Melhui to buy a piece of you! This is the first time Weis has reached the Super MILLION$ final table in 20 attempts. You can bet your bottom dollar he will be going all out to make the most of his time in the limelight.

Just below the staked players is Brazil's Eder "BlueMoon" Campana, who takes a seat at his second Super MILLION$ final table with 1,560,676 chips (52 big blinds). Finishing seventh or better pushes Campana's Super MILLION$ winnings past the $200,000 barrier. Third place or better sees the $300,000 mark surpassed.
Ukraine's "bredor" is something of an unknown quantity when it comes to this tournament, with them only having three appearances prior to this one. They obviously know their way around a GGPoker tournament table because they have $409,939 in winnings. Sitting down in the middle of the pack with 966,103 chips (32 big blinds) means they have a realistic chance of ending the night with their earnings tally in excess of $500,000.
Sixth place when the cards are back in the air from 7:00 p.m. BST on August 16 belongs to GGPoker ambassador Anatoly Filatov. The Turkey-based Russian has won the Super MILLION$ twice before and has more than $2.7 million in winnings from this event as a result. Filatov is armed with 943,503 chips (32 big blinds) when play resumes; he could be the dark horse of this star-studded final table.
Christopher Frank, a former WPT champion, knows his 816,649 stack (27 big blinds) places him at the wrong end of the chip counts, but also that a fifth-place of better finish will see his Super MILLION$ earnings swell to more than $1 million. If that is not enough to motivate you to bring your A-game we do not know what is. This is the fourth time we’ve seen Frank at a Super MILLION$ final table. Will it be the first time we see him on top of the podium?
Two undead fans take up the final two spots at the final table; neither has played in this event before. "Zombie Chow" of Montenegro has 623,016 betting tokens (21 big blinds), while "LIM ZOMBIE" of Hong Kong is the shot stack with 237,902 chips (8 big blinds).
