Meanwhile, Harald Sammer bagged the chip lead in the partypoker MILLIONS Online Closer on Day 1a.
The MILLIONS Online #23 Mix-Max boasted a $3,200 buy-in along with a generous $300,000 guaranteed prize pool. The guarantee was just met with 100 entrants getting into the action.
The one-day event, which lasted slightly more than 8 1/2 hours, featured a unique format featuring eight-max action for the first 15 blind levels. The rest of the way was six-max barring the seven-max final table.
Two players with Union Jack flags but from different countries in Greece's Alexandros Theologis and Spain's Adrian Mateos battled it out in heads-up play. Mateos was denied the title and had to settle for the runner-up prize of $49,929 after Theologis beat the Spanish poker superstar to win his first MILLIONS Online title along with the $74,937 top prize.
The final table was full of superstars. Rui Ferreira joined Theologis and Mateos on the podium before he bowed out in third place for $34,855. Others at the final table outside of the top three included Pavel Plesuv (fourth - $24,014), William Foxen (fifth - $17,718), Andrii Novak (sixth - $13,956), Samy Ouellani (seventh - $10,072).
