It was an excellent weekend for Luke Reeves, who would have been celebrating winning his second GGPoker Super Million$ title. Reeves has been in excellent form at the table throughout the first month of 2021, and added a second title to his collection on the 26th January.
The win came in the Super Million$ event, as he was able to hold off 225 entrants. The number of players involved meant that there was a huge prize pot up for grabs during the tournament, with the top nine players in competition able to take home the bigger part of that fund.
Reeves Claims Big Win
The Irish player was undoubtedly the star of the show, as he was able to hang on to get the win, and claim $408,406 in returns from the event. However, some of the biggest names in poker were also able to take home sizeable winnings from the event on the 26th. David Yan finished in second place on the leaderboard, as he missed out on the top spot after the heads-up challenge against Reeves. Nevertheless, he still walked away with £319,924.
Connor Drinan was the first player knocked out on the final table, as the Canadian player had to settle for ninth place on the leaderboard and $51,050 in returns. The highest placed player from the United Kingdom came next on the leaderboard, as Jonathan Proudfoot claimed eighth spot and $66,204 in returns. Mexico’s Melker Larsson looked good value to go deep in the competition, but needed to settle for seventh spot after falling just before Finland’s Eelis Parssinen.
Ole Schemion claimed fifth spot on the leaderboard, and won $111,342 in returns for that achievement. Canadian players dominated two of the top four spots on the final leaderboard, as Mike Watson fell shortly before his compatriot Daniel Dvoress, with the latter of the players taking third on the leaderboard. Watson won $187,255, while Dvoress was able to pick up $242,839 in returns from the Super Million$ event last week.
Couple Competes In Heads-Up Challenge
Typically, couples will always be on the same side when it comes to everything that life throws at you. However, that wasn’t the case in a WSOP Super Series event last weeks, as Katie Lindsay and Chris Moorman were forced to compete against one another for a gold ring. It made for captivating viewing, as the couple went toe-to-toe for one of the most illustrious prizes.
There certainly would have been disappointment from Katie Lindsay, as she narrowly missed out on top spot at the hands of her husband. Moorman’s win saw him claim $19,510.56 in returns from the event, while his wife needed to settle for second spot on the leaderboard and $14,443.20. Moorman also won $250,000 last month in a High Roller Million$ event. Regardless, there still would have been no ill-feeling between the couple, as they both did excellently to hold off a competitive field of players to reach the final two. Other players to finish in the top nine included Matthew Volosovich, Susannah Altman and Michael Azzaro.
