Another high-stakes contest on the final Super Sunday of the 2021 GG Spring Festival is one step closer to completion. After nearly ten hours of play, GGSF Event H-108: $10,300 Super MILLION$ wrapped up as the nine-handed final table was determined. The tournament drew a total field of 347 entries and surpassed the $3 million guarantee.
A portion of the $3,470,000 prize pool has already been awarded as the top 35 spots were paid, but the big money will be up for grabs when the final table resumes on the live-streamed final table on Tuesday, April 27. Best-positioned for the top prize of $651,821 is Brazil's Yuri Dzivielevski with 7,385,921 and Canada's Daniel Dvoress follows close behind with 7,083,460.
They have already established a gap to third-placed "xyzpoker" (4,821,30) while Christian Jeppson, Timothy Adams, and George Wolff are closely bunched together between 41 and 49 big blinds. The final table was determined when 2020 WSOP Main Event champion Damian Salas was sent to the rail by Dvoress.

Dario Sammartino, one of many High Roller winners during the series on the rapidly-growing poker site, ended up as the bubble boy. Among those finishing inside the money were such familiar names as Joao Vieira, Aleksejs Ponakovs, David Peters, Eelis Pärssinen, Ronny Kaiser, Ole Schemion, Fedor Holz, Artur Martirosian, and Bruno Volkmann.
Holz and Volkmann fell victim to the late hot run of eventual chip leader Yuri Dzivielevski. The Brazilian essentially did what he typically does deep in high-profile tournaments. If he needed to improve, he got there and when he held the superior hand, it usually held up. As such, it was no surprise that Dzivielevski prevailed with ace-queen against the ace-jack of Holz. Only a few minutes later, fellow Brazilian Volkmann put his hopes on kings only to see Dzivielevski spike the dreadful ace on the turn.
Likewise, second in chips Daniel Dvoress needed to come from behind to knock out Damian Salas. Blind-on-blind, Dvoress jammed with nine-six suited and was called by Salas with ace-jack. One of the live cards fell on the turn and that sealed Salas' fate as the final table bubble boy.
Many other notables were less fortunate. A quick look through the list of casualties outside of the money reveals the who-is-who of the poker scene and it would be a difficult task to pick just a few of them to do it justice. Instead, the look goes ahead to the conclusion of this event in two days' time. The PokerNews live reporting team will be back then to provide all the key hands until a winner is crowned.
