Ole Schemion wins Super Million$ at GGPoker
Another Super Million$ tournament took place at GGPoker, bringing us a new champion. Ole Schemion started the final table having one of the smallest stacks but managed to get to the top. For his victory, the poker player received $317 740 in prize money.
Schemion reached a turning point in 8-max, when he knocked out Sean Winter of the game: A-Q was stronger than A-2. After a few hands later, Ole beat another rival. Mexican player with the “Nator” nickname moved all-in with 10-3 and was called by Schemion who received a pair of eights as pocket cards.
Philippe DAuteuil from Canada finished his participation in fifth place. The main focus was on him, as the Canadian qualified for the $10 300 tournament for only $100. According to the finishing position, Philippe was given $115 000.
Stephen Chidwick and Matthias Eibinger took fourth and third place, respectively. Eibinger was knocked out of the event by Ole Schemion, who was crushing the final table that evening.
In the final heads-up, Ole Schemion was opposed by the Austrian player with the “Mr Gambol” nickname. The future champion showed his mastery so that MrGambol could do nothing to beat Schemion.
In the last hand of the tournament, both poker players went all-in: Schemion had K-K, while MrGambol had 5-5. If another 5 had appeared on the board, the Austrian could have emerged victorious, but fate intended otherwise.
