Nov. 24 final table ends with Miscikowski earning $337,019 in the win

This week’s edition of the GGPoker $10,300 Super Millions High Roller ended with David Miscikowski hitting a dream card on the turn in the final hand, securing a six-figure win.

Miscikowski topped a field of 185 entries, outdueling Aleks Ponakovs in the heads-up match for the title in the $1.5 million guaranteed tournament. Miscikowski took home $337,019 in the victory, coming away with his first Super MILLION$ win in his third final table appearance for the weekly high-stakes tournament.

The final hand saw Miscikowski limp with A5 with the blinds at 100,000/200,000. Ponakovs raised to 800,000 with 77♠, Miscikowski shoved over the top, and Ponakovs called, committing his entire 5.6 million stack against the bigger chip count of Miscikowski.

The flop came 84♠2♠, keeping Ponakovs in the lead but bringing in a gutshot draw to the wheel straight for Miscikowski. That wheel draw completed on the turn, with the 3 hitting the board and leaving Ponakovs drawing dead. The river fell an inconsequential 2, clinching the win for Miscikowski.

The American pro Miscikowski added one of the biggest paydays of his career to a resume that includes more than $1.4 million in live tournament earnings and a WSOP bracelet. Miscikowski’s winnings on GGPoker went over the $2.9 million mark with this week’s Super MILLION$ payday added to the total.

Another loaded final table for the Super MILLION$ High Roller

Ponakovs (2nd – $ 273,207) and Miscikowski ended up as the final two from what could be the most stacked table seen yet at the Super MILLION$ High Roller. Ponakovs entered the final table as the tournament chip leader and went home with a runner-up finish in his second straight Super MILLION$ final table appearance.

Justin Bonomo (3rd – $221,477), the No. 2 player on the Hendon Mob all-time live tournament money list with more than $49 million in earnings, started the day third in chips and ended up with a third-place finish. Tuesday’s tournament marked Bonomo’s first appearance at the Super MILLION$ final table.

Bonomo’s last stand came in a hand at 100,000/200,000 that started with open shoving his 2.5 million stack from the small blind with A7♣. Ponakovs called with QT♣ from the big blind, and a queen-high board sent Bonomo to the virtual rail.

Other top finishers included Bruno Volkman (4th – $179,542), ‘BabyGirl21’ (5th – $145,547), and Timothy Adams (6th – $117,989). Adams added to a November haul that includes a second-place finish in the 2020 EPT Online Main Event for $728,633. Tuesday’s tournament finish marked the second final table appearance in the Super High Roller for Adams.
