Canada’s Timothy Adams Captures GGPoker Super MILLION$ for $315,158
Timothy Adams has added another major title to his list of poker accomplishments. The Canadian poker pro just won the $10,000 buy-in Super MILLION$ on GGPoker. The event concluded on December 8, with nine players battling it out for the top prize. In the end, it was Adams who walked away with the title, alongside $315,158 in first-place winnings.
Action got off to an intense start, with the first elimination happening on the very first hand. Anatoly Filatov left the table after Seth Davies called his three-bet all-in with pocket aces against pocket queens.
The Russian poker pro did not find any help from the board, ending his bid in ninth place for $58,779. Davies may have scored the first final table knockout, but he was also out of the game soon after, when he lost a hand against the eventual winner. Davies took home $72,508 for finishing eighth.
The next player to bust was Laurynas Levinskas who lost his ace-king to Fabrice Touil‘s pocket queens. The latter three-bet all-in from the button, prompting Adams to fold out. Levinskas proceeded with the action but ended up being eliminated in seventh place for $89,444.
While Touil managed to extend his tournament life after starting the final table with just 3.5 big blinds, he failed to advance much further after an encounter with Adams, who made a pair of aces on the flop, defeating Touil’s pair of kings. Not bad for the Brazilian though, as the tournament paved the way for him to book his first ever six-figure score of $110,335. He finished in sixth place.
The final table was reduced to just four players right after the second scheduled break when Croatia’s Alex Papazian called off all of his remaining chips after Arends shoved from the big blind. Papazian had Big Slick, with Arends holding a pair of nines. The latter managed to flop a set and then later turned a full house to eliminate his Croatian opponent in fifth place for $136,106.
With just four players remaining, it was Artur Martirosian‘s turn to exit the game. He battled it out with fellow Russian “MAMOH_T” with ace-queen against pocket queens. The latter’s cards held and Martirosian settled for fourth place with $167,896 in winnings.
Not long after, “MAMOH_T” waved goodbye, after putting all of his remaining chips in the middle with king-trey against Adams’ jack-ten. “MAMOH_T” picked up a king on the flop, but Adams improved to a straight on the turn to finish the Russian off in third place, taking home $207,111.
Adams Led the Final Table from Start to Finish
Heads-up play kicked off with Adams holding a massive lead over Arends. The deciding moment came when Arends min-raised to 400,000 from the button with ace-queen, to which Adams responded with a three-bet to 1,180,000 holding a pair of queens.
Arends four-bet shoved for 7,166,104, but it wasn’t enough to intimidate Adams who immediately called. The board was no help for Arends, and it was Adams who emerged as the latest GGPoker Super MILLION$ winner.
