On April 27, the $ 10,300 buy-in Super MILLIONS ended with 347 players. Markus Leikkonen from Finland became the winner of the event and received an impressive prize of $ 651,821. Brazilian superstar Yuri Dzivielevski was the chip leader going into the nine-handed final table, closely followed by Daniel Dvoress. Neither was able to build on their impressive start and become the final champion of the GG Spring Festival.
The final table lost a player when Konstantin Maslak shoved for 9.5 big blinds with AK and lost a coinflip against Dzivielevski’s JJ. Dzivielevski was the executioner against in a cooler hand that saw “xyzpoker” hit the rail in eighth-place. xyzpoker must have been rubbing his hands together in delight after looking down at KK and seeing Dzivielevski all but min-raise in front of him. Delight turned to despair when the Brazilian snap-called xyzpoker’s 8.5 big blind three-bet all-in, doing so with AA.
Coleman held the advantage going into heads-up, his 19,303,914 stack up against Leikkonen’s 15,396,086. Coleman pushed further ahead, but Leikkonen pulled level before forging a lead for himself.
The final hand occurred during the 200,000/400,000/50,000a level, and saw Coleman min-raise to 800,000. Leikkonen called before check-calling an 860,000 bet on the 6 4 2 flop. It was a similar story on the ( 2 ) turn, Leikkonen checking before calling Coleman’s 400,000 bet. The ( 6 ) river saw Leikkonen check for a third time. Coleman took the bait and jammed all-in for almost twice the size of the pot. Leikkonen instantly called having set a trap with his K6, which was now a full house. Coleman could only muster the 97.
Leikkonen, a high-stakes cash game specialist, walked away with $651 821, leaving Coleman to lick his wounds with $502 622 to show for his efforts.
