Luke Reeves has done it again. Reeves won the GGPoker Super MILLION$ on December 10 and scooped $381,241. he won again on January 26 and padded his bankroll with an additional $408,406 after an intense battle against some of the world’s best poker players.
Connor Drinan sat down at the final table with the shortest stack and was the first player out of the door. Drinan came unstuck during the 35,000/70,000/8,500a level where he shoved 10 big blinds with king-queen and ran into the ace-queen of Mike Watson in the big blind. A board void of drama sent Drinan to the rail.Jonathan Proudfoot was the next player to bust, doing so during the same level. The action folded to Reeves on the button and he min-raised with queen-eight. Proudfoot, in the small blind, three-bet to 560,000 with suited ace-six. Daniel Dvoress jammed all-in for 25 big blinds with ace-ten, folding out Reeves, but Proudfoot called. Proudfoot spiked an ace on the flop but Dvoress caught running diamonds to win the pot.
Five became for following the demise of Ole Schemion in a monster-pot. Yan raised to 320,000 in the cutoff which prompted Schemion to raise all-in for 1,550,101 with pocket tens on the button. Watson four-bet all-in with eights, and Reeves woke up in the big blind with kings and called off his 2,426,482 stack. Reeves flopped top set before improving to a full house on the turn, busting Schemion and leaving Watson with a mere 4.3 big blinds. Watson’s micro-stack went into the middle on the very next hand with ace-king and Dvoress called from the big blind with pocket deuces. Watson missed the board and the tournament was suddenly down to three players, with Dvoress in a commanding position.
Despite being chip leader with three players remaining, Dvoress was the next player to be eliminated. Blinds were now 125,000/250,000/30,000a and Reeves open-shoved from the small blind with queen-seven and Dvoress called all-in for 3,218,398 with ace-three. A seven on the flop sealed the deal for Reeves.
That hand gave Reeves a better than two-to-one chip advantage over Yan. Yan couldn’t close the gap and ultimately had to make do with second place.
The final hand saw Yan raise to 550,000 with pocket fives, Reeves three-bet all-in with ace-ten, and Yan called off his last 4,701,536 chips. Reeves improved to a club flush by the turn to resign Yan to the $314,924 runner-up prize and to bank the $408,406 top prize, and a second Super MILLION$ title, for himself.
