Mike Watson is the closest to winning the Super Millions
As usual, GGPoker hosts a traditional high roller every week with a buy-in of 10,300 USD. Mike Watson is the closest to winning the Super Millions this week. The Canadian is a chip leader and has twice as many chips as the closest pursuer. Watson hopes that the March story, when he was in exactly the same position and did not win in the end, will not be repeated.
In March of this year, Mike Watson had a huge stack of 126 BB, and his closest pursuer Artur Martirosian had 55 BB. The Russian then made a comeback and became the champion. Unfortunately, this time the Russian is not at the final table. Watson now has 5,625,749 chips, or 141 BB, hoping to pick up the grand prize of 341,478 USD.
- Mike Watson — 5,625,749 chips (141 BB)
- GoProWarrior — 2,782,919 chips (70 BB)
- joyeux — 2,518,151 chips (63 BB)
- Jans Arends — 1,620,453 chips (41 BB)
- Andrii Novak — 1,069,640 chips (27 BB)
- Nikita Kuznetsov — 893,960 chips (22 BB)
- Roman Hrabec — 852,950 chips (21 BB)
- Johannes “Hazes” Straver — 839,652 chips (21 BB)
- brino — 596,526 chips (15 BB)
Watson’s Canadian colleague GoProWarrior ranks second in the number of chips, with 2,782,919 (70 BB) in the asset. This Canadian has already won the Super Millions last August. Then he beat Niklas Astedt in the heads-up, preventing him from winning his sixth title. A player from Mexico with the nickname joyeux has fewer chips. The player’s best result in this tournament is fifth place, which he took in January 2022. That day he managed to earn 158,689 USD. If joyeux finishes above 7th place, his earnings on GGPoker will exceed 1 million USD. Now the Mexican has 2,518,151 chips (63 BB).
Israeli player brino closes the chip count
On the 4th line of the chip count is Jans Arends, a player with earnings in Super Millions of 6.6 million USD. Arends twice became the runner-up of the tournament. Now he has 1,620,453 chips (41 BB). Ukrainian poker player Andrii Novak is in 5th place and is hunting for his first event title. Even though he does not have a title yet, the Ukrainian regularly plays on GGPoker and has already managed to win an impressive 7.8 million USD. Now Novak has 27 BB or 1,069,640 chips.
All other players have less than a million chips, including Nikita Kuznetsov, who has 893,960 (22 BB). Until that day, Kuznetsov had never made it to the Super Millions finals. At the same time, the Russian’s winnings on GGPoker exceed 3.6 million USD. Just below Kuznetsov is Roman Hrabec with his 852,950 chips (21 big blind). Hrabec doesn’t play Super Millions that often, and 75% of his winnings belong to other people. Marius Gierse bought 40%, and Eelis Parssinen bought almost 23%.
Johannes “Hazes” Straver took 14th place on November 14, narrowly missing the final. This time he managed to go further, albeit with a small stack. Now the Austrian has 839,652 chips or 21 BB. Israeli player brino closes the chip count with 596,526 chips (15 Big Blinds) in his hands.
