The most expensive tournament of the 2018 partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Grand Final Barcelona has determined it’s champion. It was Jake Schindler that lifted the trophy and claimed a payday of €1,750,000 ($2,163,698), defeating Stephen Chidwick heads-up in the €101,000 Super High Roller.
Eleven players out of a 48-entry strong field returned for the final day, all aiming to take home a portion of the €4,656,000 prize pool. Only the top six spots were paid. On the money bubble, it was Keith Tilston that had to leave empty-handed. Tilston raised out of the small blind with pocket sixes and called the shove of Koon who turned over king-seven. A seven appeared on the turn and that locked up the min-cash of €240,000 for the remaining six players while Tilston departed.
A two-hour battle with a seven-figure score guaranteed followed. Eventually, with blinds of 175,000 and 350,000, Schindler raised to 875,000 and Chidwick called. On the flop, Chidwick check-called a bet of 500,000 and check-raised the turn from 1.8 million to 5.1 million. Schindler just called, and the hit the river. Chidwick moved all in, and Schindler eventually called to see his opponent turn over for a bluff gone wrong, while Schindler had for the straight.
