Ottomar Ladva Wins His Second Super MILLION$


Оттомар Ладва
Estonian chess grandmaster Ottomar Ladva became a two-time Super MILLION$ champion on October 26 when he bested a tough final table online at GGPoker. Ladva, who won this event in June 2021, prevented Artur Martirosian from securing his third such title, and walked away with the lion’s share of the spoils, namely $286,842.

Isaac Haxton sat down at the final table with the shortest stack and could not rectify his situation. He found a great spot during the 17,500/35,000/4,500a level when Martirosian opened to 77,000 and Ladva flat called from the next seat along. Haxton looked down at ace-king and jammed in his 376m272 stack, which folded out everyone except Ladva who called with pocket jacks. Ladva’s hand remained true, and Haxton busted.

Konstantin Maslak was the next player heading to the payout desk. Biao “d7777” Ding min-raised to 100,000 with pocket aces from late position before instantly calling when Maslak three-bet all-in for 1,066,980 with ace-queen of hearts. A ten-high board reduced the field by one.

Heads-up was set when Andorra’s “ChiNana” crashed out. ChiNana won his way into the Super MILLION$ for only $108 and turned that into $174,944. Bizarrely, Ladva open-shoved from the small blind with ace-three at the 160,000 big blind level. ChiNana called off the 2,948,608 chips he had behind with the dominating ace-queen, only to see the five community cards fall with a three on the flop.

Ladva and Martirosian had almost even stacks at the start of heads-up but Martirosian bluffed off almost all his chips betting all three streets with just nine-three offsuit when Ladva had turned two pair, aces and fives. The rest of Martirosian’s tiny stack, less than three big blinds, went into the middle with ace-queen versus jack-four, and he doubled.

The next hand saw Martirosian jam with five-four of hearts and lose to Ladva’s queen-eight courtesy of a queen on the flop.

Ladva now has more than $870,000 in Super MILLION$ winnings and over $4.5 million in cashes at GGPoker alone.
