The massive High Rollers Week on GGPoker, boasting a combined $22 million in guarantees from November 8-15, is in full swing. Last night, under the watchful eye of PokerNews live reporting team, one of the biggest events of the week took place as the final table of HRW 02: $10,300 Super MILLION$ with a mouth-watering guarantee of $3M, was played out.
A total of 291 players signed up for GGPoker’s weekly key event and in the end, it was Canada’s Kyle Menard who claimed the top spot to win $628,892 in his first Super MILLION$ appearance.
With the victory, Menard followed up to another massive six-figure score just days ago when he took third in the Battle of Malta #6: $5,250 High Roller Championship for a whopping $235,088. In total, the Canadian has eclipsed the seven-figure mark in tournament earnings at GGPoker with $1,012,507 and counting.
Canada’s Philippe D’Auteuil took full advantage of GGPoker’s unique staking feature and sold 50% of his action at a mark-up of 1.13. Ami Barer, who bought all 50% of his countryman’s action, will see a sweet return on his investment as D’Auteuil cashed for a massive $354,582.
Menard overcame PLO-specialist Eelis Parssinen heads-up over the course of just three hands. In the final hand, Menard bet all three streets including a jam on the river on a queen-high board after opening the action on the button with queen-jack. Parssinen called all the way with queen-seven and his weak kicker came into play to give Menard the victory.
