Paul Phua

Partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Super High Roller is being held at Sochi Casino, Russia. The other day, there was the NLH tournament with $100 000 buy-in held as part of the festival.

The event collected 42 entries, and its prize pool amounted to as much as $4 200 000. There were 6 prize places in the tournament with the minimal payout of $252 000.

The winner of the event became the well-known Malaysian poker professional Paul Phua, who received $1 520 000 for the first place. For the guy, this is the third final table he reached at the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Super High Roller in Sochi.

In live tournaments, Phua has won over $18.7 million, but this victory is one of Paul's biggest victories in his poker career.

In the heads-up, Phua played against the Austrian Matthias Eibinger. Paul had a considerable advantage in chips (6 135 000 against 2 265 000) after knocking out his compatriot Chin Wei Lim from the tournament.

In the final hand, the Triton Poker owner raised at every street with A-8 until Ebinger went all-in with 10-8 on the river. The board was A-9-8-K-6. The Austrian apparently hoped that his opponent was bluffing, but as it turned out later, Paul collected two pairs, which ensured his victory in this event. For the second place, Matthias Eibinger was awarded with $1 008 000.
