Ben Ward Wins GGPoker Super MILLION$ Week Main Event


Бен УордThe 2021 GGPoker Super MILLION$ Week has officially concluded with the completion of the $10,300 Super MILLION$ Main Event. Even though it fell short of the $10 million guarantee by 24 entries, the 976-entry strong field was the biggest the flagship event has ever attracted. The final table action was also live-streamed on the Youtube and Twitch channels with cards-up coverage and commentary by Randy “nanonoko” Lew and Kevin “RotterdaM” van der Kooi.

After just 2 1/2 hours on the last day of play, the final table wrapped up and the U.K.’s Ben Ward defeated 2019 WSOPE Main Event champion Alexandros Kolonias in a short-lived heads-up battle. Both players collected seven-figure paydays as Ward earned the top prize of $1,242,332 while Kolonias walked away with $1,000,991.

Javier Gomez turned the second-shortest stack at the start of the final table into a third-place finish for $818,576. The Spanish pro was one of four players who bowed out in the span of just 15 minutes as the tournament raced to a rapid conclusion. Gomez had navigated his short stack masterfully until then to not only ladder up but mostly stay out of trouble. When Ward jammed blind-on-blind, he called with ace-queen only to see Ward’s queen-jack get there thanks to a jack on the flop.

Heads-up lasted just over 10 minutes in total and Kolonias won just four pots. He eventually four-bet jammed pocket nines into the ace-king suited of Ward and there was an ace in the window to seal the victory for the current Mexico resident.
