Michael Addamo’s stock continues to rise in the world of poker, as he was crowned the winner of yet another Super Million$ event this past week. It seems as though the Australian can do no wrong in the events, as he claimed a fourth victory in the series this week. The result almost never seemed to be in doubt, as he led entering the final table with a chip advantage, and he was able to take it home comfortably in the end with a routine victory.
Addamo Wins Super Million$
Few players are able to claim one Super Million$ victory, but Addamo has made it a regular routine in the events to make sure that he always comes out on top. The Australian, who lives in Canada, has made it a habit of seeing out games after entering the final table with a healthy advantage. That is something that many players can only wish to have, as seeing off games is typically the most challenging part of any poker event. However, sealing a win is nothing special for Addamo, as it comes as second nature.
The Australian managed to win the fourth Super Million$ of his career, and in doing so, he claimed prize money of $325,957. Addamo has had a very lucrative couple of years in the poker world, as he has won over $2 million in prize money throughout the year in each of the last three years. He currently sits third overall on the all-time money list for Australian players, and 130th overall on the all-time money list. It would be hard to suggest that this will be the final time that we see him winning a Super Million$ event.
Remaining Players On Final Table
The story of the competition focused heavily on Addamo, but there were still some big returns for the players that finished below the Australian in the event. Judd Trump finished as the runner-up in the Super Million$ event, as he just had no answer for the runaway winner in the end. However, he still managed to win returns of $254,559 from the event, which was a decent result. Yuri Dzivielevski narrowly missed out on the top two places, as he finished in third place in the event. However, it was still a lucrative finish, as he managed to pick up returns of just under $200,000.
Isaac Haxton and Francisco Benitez were the next two players on the leaderboard, as they finished in fourth and fifth respectively. Benitez managed to get returns of £121,247, making him the lowest ranked finisher to earn over $100,000 in the Super Million$ event. Sosia Jiang was sixth, while Bert Stevens finished in seventh place overall. Ludovic Geilich was back in eighth, as he won $57,750 from the Super Million$. The final player on the final table in the event was Aleks Ponakovs. The Latvian player was the first out on the final table, but he still managed to walk away with $45,100 in prize money for his efforts.
