Bruno Volkmann has joined a small group of elite poker tournaments who have won the GGPoker Super MILLION$ more than once. Brazilian Volkmann first won this tournament in September 2020 and now adds a second title, and an additional $319,830, after taking down the May 25, 2021 edition.
This week’s Super MILLION$ final table was a story of impressive comebacks. Volkmann sat down in fifth-place with a 27 big blind stack before marching onto victory. Equally, if not more, impressive was the comeback of Elio Fox. The two-time WSOP bracelet winner returned to the action with a meagre 8.5 big blind stack yet navigated his way to a runner-up finish worth $253 440.
Deals are not permitted in the Super MILLION$, but Fox and Volkmann agreed to one privately away from the tables. This resulted in the pair open-shoving their hands, essentially flipping for the title of champion.
Volkmann doubled his stack in the first of those flips, and secured the title with second of those flips, his ace-five beating Fox’s dominated king-five.
