(12.04.18) Schindler Wins partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Grand Final €100k!

12.04.2018

The most expensive tournament of the 2018 partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Grand Final Barcelona has determined it’s champion. It was Jake Schindler that lifted the trophy and claimed a payday of €1,750,000 ($2,163,698), defeating Stephen Chidwick heads-up in the €101,000 Super High Roller.

Eleven players out of a 48-entry strong field returned for the final day, all aiming to take home a portion of the €4,656,000 prize pool. Only the top six spots were paid. On the money bubble, it was Keith Tilston that had to leave empty-handed. Tilston raised out of the small blind with pocket sixes and called the shove of Koon who turned over king-seven. A seven appeared on the turn and that locked up the min-cash of €240,000 for the remaining six players while Tilston departed.

A two-hour battle with a seven-figure score guaranteed followed. Eventually, with blinds of 175,000 and 350,000, Schindler raised to 875,000 and Chidwick called. On the {A-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{2-Spades} flop, Chidwick check-called a bet of 500,000 and check-raised the {5-Clubs} turn from 1.8 million to 5.1 million. Schindler just called, and the {7-Spades} hit the river. Chidwick moved all in, and Schindler eventually called to see his opponent turn over {Q-Spades}{6-Hearts} for a bluff gone wrong, while Schindler had {A-Spades}{3-Hearts} for the straight.
