Another hugely popular tournament in the poker world came to a close at PokerOK. As you might have guessed, this is the Mega Millions event.
In this example, the buy-in is $10,300, the deposit is $1,000,000, the event has 185 participants, and the final prize pool is $1,850,000.
We recently reported that Latvian poker player Alexey Ponjakov was the chip leader with 3,891,020 chips (77.8 BB) in the tournament pre-finals.
As you can see, Alexey managed to maintain his lead and become the undisputed champion of the race. The Latvian won his second Millionaire Championship for $376,033. The event’s runner-up was Austrian poker player “TouchSomeGrass” who finished second with $294,844.
Last year’s Millionaire runner-up, Brazilian Pedro Garagnani, finished eighth in the event for $68,510. Another Austrian poker player, Thomas Mülloker, came in 11th with $33,920.
The heads-up competition is very intense. Towards the end of the final hand, the Austrian slowly started winning back his chips. The final hand of the tournament could change everything for TouchSomeGrass. The Austrian poker player bet preflop with the Ace Six of Hearts (A♥-6♥) and was called by Ponjakov with the mixed A 4 (A♠-4♥). The player will receive the following cards: A ♦-7◆-4♣-2♥-3♠. Poniakov got two pair and became the champion.
