There is becoming a very familiar trend when it comes to the Super Million$, as a very familiar face continues to bring his A-Game to make the competition worry. Once again, it was Artur Martirosian that was able to come out on top in one of the toughest weekly poker events on the global calendar.
It would have been a particularly incredible moment for the player too, as he was able to win a fifth Super Million$ title, which now puts him level on that number of wins alongside legends such as Michael Addamo and Niklas Astedt. But, for Martirosian it would have likely been business as usual this week.
Martirosian Runs Away With Another Win
It has already been a special year for Martirosian throughout 2022, as he came into this event in mid-week after already picking up victories in the Merit Poker Western 2022. During that event, he would twice over a period of seven days in January, which included a cash out for $190,652 when capping success in the No Limit Hold’em Warm Up event. However, picking up a fifth Super Million$ title would certainly have been extra special given the company that he now keeps.
The victory sees him tie with legends in the form of Astedt and Addamo, and he made it look remarkably easy in the Super Million$ this week. He topped an incredibly competitive field this week, which included stars such as Fedor Holz and Christian Rudolph. The victory in the Super Million$ this week saw him pick up a top prize of $557,636 in prize money. It furthers his reputation as one of the best in the world, as he has now won over $3.2 million in live earnings during his career, and sits 16th on the all-time money list for players from Russia.
Holz Finishes Second, Ponakovs Third
There were no shortage of big names in the world of poker behind him on the leaderboard in the event this week. Fedor Holz came up short in his bid to end Martirosian’s hopes of a fifth Super Million$ title, as he finished second. However, that still returned considerable returns, as he won $429,996 in prize money. Aleks Ponakovs was back in third in the Super Million$ event, as the Latvian star won returns of $331,572. Christian Rudolph was the next player on the list, as he finished back in fourth but still won $255,677.
Andrii Novak for Ukraine was back in fifth, as he won $197,154 in prize money from the event. Gab Yong Kim was in sixth for $152,026, while the final three places on the leaderboard were taken up by Christopher Puetz, LUCKY888889999 and Wiktor Malinowski. However, the tournament was all about Martirosian’s continued dominance in Super Million$ events, and very few would bet against him recording a sixth victory before the end of the year.
