The poker action continues across the world over this busy summer period, and another win was claimed in the GGPoker Super Million$ by Ognyan Dimov earlier this weekend. He managed to hold his nerve in the final stages to win a second title, and in the process, denied German star Ole Schemion a third Super Million$ success.
It was a captivating event earlier in the weekend, and both stars would have thought that they had the upperhand at different stages of the competition. But, ultimately, it was Dimov that managed to come out on top for his second career success in the event.
Dimov Wins Second Super Million$ Event
It has been a long wait for Dimov to add to his first Super Million$ success. His first victory came back in December 2021, as he won a massive total of $508,891 last year. However, the wait came to an end this week, as he held his nerve to finish top of the leaderboard in the latest Super Million$ event. However, this success wasn’t as lucrative as his first, as he walked away with returns of $302,053. Still, the success in the competition would have meant more than anything for the Bulgarian player earlier this week.
The Bulgarian has now won over $3 million in career earnings at the table, and has solidified his place as the second all-time money leader from his home country. He also sits 590th on the all-time money list. His best cash out remains the $845,111 that he won a couple of years ago.
It had been a dry spell at the table for the Bulgarian, as he has failed to finish in the top ten of an event in each of his previous ten events. His previous finish in the top ten came as he finished eighth in the WSOP high Roller 8-Handed, which won him $143,480. He also finished third in a European Poker Tour Event earlier in the year in Prague.
Schemion Chases Dimov Home
The only player that looked set to compete for the top prize in the event was German star Ole Schemion. However, his bid for success eventually faded in the closing stages, and he needed to settle for second place overall. That finish meant that he wasn’t able to pick up a third victory in the Super Million$, but he did still collect returns of $235,891.
Juan Dominguez finished just behind the first two players, as he claimed third and won $184,221. Casimir Seire finished back in fourth for $143,869, while Mark Radoja was the only other player to win over $100,000, as he finished fifth in the final standings. Esteemed star Wiktor Malinowski finished in sixth place, while the final three players in action on the final table were Aleksejs Ponakovs, Marcelo Asensio and Dario Sammartino.
