Day 3 Completed
The two biggest individual prizes during the ongoing 2021 GG Spring Festival have been awarded and a winner has been crowned in the record-breaking GGSF Super MILLION$ ME-H: $10,300. The biggest edition of the weekly high-stakes showdown on GGPoker drew a staggering 1,089 entries and 125 players earned a share of the $10,890,000 prize pool. When the dust had settled, it was Joakim Andersson who earned another Super MILLION$ victory.
The Swede has been a fixture in the High Roller Events on the fastest-growing online poker site for the last few months. He prevailed in a short-lived heads-up duel against Julian Stuer, banking the top prize of $1,537,605. It only took him just over two and a half hours to get the job done, and he knocked out six opponents on the way. Runner-up Stuer was responsible for the other two eliminations and collected $1,185,655 for the efforts.
Darrell Goh finished in third while Stevan "Steve Austin" Chew turned a satellite win into a handsome six-figure payday in fourth place. Among the other finalists were also Taylor Paur and Alex Foxen, who became the first two casualties of the final day.

Andersson Cruises to Victory
Andersson started the day as the only player above 100 blinds and second in chips was India's "level29", while Stuer sat in third place with 53 blinds. It didn't take long for the first player to bust as Andersson knocked out Taylor Paur in the fourth hand of the final table. The always dangerous Alex Foxen also sent over his chips to Andersson when ace-ten suited picked up no help versus pocket fives.
It was no smooth ride for Andersson from there on as he dashed out several double-ups. Gergely "Land on it!" Kulcsar survived three times and Stuer also doubled through the Swede. Roman "RRomashka" Emelyanov then lost his chips to Stuer and Kulcsar followed suit to propel Stuer into the lead.
However, Andersson struck back with heaps of aggression and assumed control. His first victim was "level29" who found no help with a dominated pocket pair and Stevan "Steve Austin" Chew was unable to crack pocket kings with king-seven. The lead of Andersson became overwhelming and one double up each for Darrell Goh and Stuer were just minor setbacks on the road to victory.
There simply was no stopping for the Swede, who earned his biggest payday on GGPoker so far and boosted his cashes to nearly $5.3 million.
That wraps up the PokerNews coverage of the biggest Super MILLION$ to date but there are further GG Spring Festival events running right now, for which exclusive live updates are provided.
