Ottomar Ladva had a night to remember after he defeated a star-studded final table including coming back from behind against Justin Bonomo heads-up to ship the MILLIONS Online #11 $25,500 6-Max Super High Roller for $525,089. The Super High Roller was a two-day event featuring $1,000,000 guarantee. The guarantee was smashed with the event attracting 70 entrants on Day 1 to generate a huge $1,750,000 prize pool.
Ottomar Ladva has been a well-known poker player in his home country in Estonia for quite some time and during the past year has made a name for himself on an international level. Ladva’s huge win is even more impressive considering he qualified in for just a fraction of the $25,500 buy-in. Before getting into the action on Day 1, Ladva won a $530 feeder tournament to a $2,650 direct satellite. He then won the satellite before shipping the Super High Roller last night for a sick return!
Bonomo began the heads-up action with a 2:1 chip advantage against Ladva. Ladva battled and eventually turned the tables to hold a 2:1 chip advantage himself against one of the most accomplished players in poker.
The final hand witnessed both players getting it in with top pair on the turn. Bonomo held queen-jack which also gave him an open-ended straight draw but he was behind the ace-jack suited held by Ladva. Ladva also counterfeited some of Bonomo’s potential outs with a flush draw. A blank hit the river and Bonomo was ousted in second place for $327,468.
