It was a memorable event for Timothy Adams this week, as he won his very first Super Million$ event on Tuesday evening. In truth, there aren’t many competitions that the Canadian hasn’t won during his illustrious career, but this was one of them.
However, he ensured on Tuesday that his wait for a success in the GGPoker event was ended, and he did that in commanding fashion, by seeing off a field of competitive players. There was a buy-in for the event of $10,000 for the Super Million$ on Tuesday, and Adams was able to keep his cool to take the win.
First Super Million$ Win For Adams
Adams is a favourite for every competition that he enters due to his reputation of winning the biggest events on the circuit, and that was once again the case on Tuesday. The difference being that this time he was able to win the event for the first time with GGPoker. It was no easy feat for the Canadian star, as there were some of the most recognisable names in direct competition with him during the event.
There were nine high quality players involved on the final table, with Adams seeing off the finals heads up challenge with Jans Arends to win the event. The win saw Adams walk away with prize money of $315,158, which was well deserved after he produced an excellent display in the competition. Arends had to make do with a finish in second place. The Austrian would have no doubt still been pleased with the $255,485 prize money that he left the event with, but he was undone in the closing stages by the Canadian player.
Competitive Final Table In Super Million$ Event
The Super Million$ events thus far have been very competitive, and that was once again the case on Tuesday. Russian player MAMOHT_T finished in third place on the leaderboard and walked away from the competition with $207,111 in prize money. He finished just one place higher on the leaderboard than his compatriot Artur Martirosian, who finished in fourth place and left the competition with $167,896 in prize money.
The highest finishing European player aside from Arends was Alex Papazian for Croatia, who finished in fifth place on the leaderboard. It was a fine display by the Croatian and he walked away from the evening with $136,106 in prize funds. Brazilian player Fabrice Touil was next on the leaderboard, as he just missed out on a place in the top five players on the leaderboard. However, he still claimed $110,335 in prize money.
Another Croatian player also ended up in the top nine players for the event, as Lauyrnas Levinskas managed to finish in seventh. The player managed to claimed $89,444. Seth Davies was the second Canadian player in the top nine, but he could only muster an eighth place finish. Russian player Anatoly Filatov was the final player on the leaderboard, as he finished in ninth.
