Bert Stevens, one of the most revered poker players, struck gold in the just-concluded SUPER MILLION$ High Rollers GGPoker online tournament. Stevens emerged the victor of the 196-member high stakes event, bagging a cool $393,362 after parting with $10,000 as the standard buy-in of the Super High Roller poker tournament.
Stevens edged out all opponents in a $1,000 satellite and climbed his way into the finals to go head to head with a Brazilian going by the alias “Beanboozled” before finishing him off to become the champion of the event. Beanboozled walked away with $300,040 as of the first runners up, while a Mexican known as Nator raked in the third-largest payout of the tournament at $228,917.
Sean Winter, Jake Schindler, and “McDavid97” were the only other players who lined their pockets with over 100 grand in reward money at the end of the tournament after winning $174,653, $133,252 and $101,665, respectively.
On top of the 6 top competitors, the field was packed with seasoned poker talents from different parts of the globe, including superstars such as Ali Imsirovic, Steve O’Dwyer, Daniel Dvress, Dominik Nitsche, Jon Van Fleet, Andras Nemeth and Matthias Ebinger.
