Breaking Down the Action:
  • Schneider Departs First
  • Martirosian Goes from Hero to Zero
  • Addamo Triumphs Against Austria’s Finest

The conclusion of the 2021 partypoker MILLIONS Online Series was a stellar one after six of the best gathered at the final table of a truly massive tournament.

The 28th and final event of the series was the MILLIONS Online Mega High Roller cost $102,000 to enter, and saw Australian player Michael Addamo walk away with the $1,310,715 top prize.

Schneider Departs First

It was Jacob Carl Schneider who was first to leave the party, with the six-handed final table one player lighter as the Mexico-based player busted for a cash of $225,785. Schneider was all-in from the small blind with jack-queen but could not find a lady to overtake Addamo’s pocket jacks, and the Australian was off to the perfect start.

Belarussian Mikita Badziakowski ($269,500) was the next player to lose his stack after an ill-timed move saw him bust the $3.5 million prizepool event. It was an unlucky hand, too, as Badziakowski was all-in and at risk with the best hand, his pocket tens well ahead of Artur Martirosian’s nine-ten off-suit. Unfortunately for the Belarussian, four clubs came on the board to flush his hopes down the drain.

Martirosian Goes from Hero to Zero

Soon after the Russian conqueror Badziakowski began to celebrate, however, he lurched out of contention for fourth place, for $364,000.

The Russian went from chip leader with four left to being on the virtual rail, with his ace-nine eventually no match for Christoph Vogelsang’s ace-king.

It was becoming a pattern; whoever busted the previous player to leave the table was the next person to bust themselves, something not seen last week when Ludovic Geilich won a $25,000 High Roller for a career-high score. Austrian player Vogelsang busted for $525,000 when he had two pair with ace-four and busted to Addamo’s ace-seven, which had made a better two pair and just like that, a heads-up duel was set.

Addamo Triumphs Against Austria’s Finest

Vogelsang’s fellow Austria-based player Florian Loehnert had a slight chip deficit when heads-up and it took just a single spectacular had to end the duel before it got going, unlike the forthcoming Phil Hellmuth and Daniel Negreanu High Stakes Duel, which spoke to the Poker Brat about earlier this week.

Addamo made the crucial move, moving all-in on the river with a suite nine-four having made a flush. Loehnert had a nightmare decision to make; call and be correct and the tournament was virtually his. With two pair, he eventually made the call, worth over $500,000 and saw that he was wrong to do so, with all the chips sliding digitally over to his foe Addamo.

The Australian’s latest victory was worth a massive $1.3 million, with Loehnert’s runner-up prize of $805,000 a fitting prize for the man who led the way earlier in the event.
