Baron earns $412,449 for his second win in the GGPoker weekly tournament

Not many players can claim status as a multi-time winner of the Super MILLION$ High Roller. The weekly $10,300 at GGPoker always boasts some of the toughest fields imaginable in tournament poker.

Making it to the final table marks a tall task in its own right, and winning the Super MILLION$ puts players in an elite class. Isaac Baron now flies in the even more rarified air of two-time Super MILLION$ champions.

Baron clinched his second career Super MILLION$ win Tuesday, finishing the deal for a $412,449 payday. The 40-week history of the Super MILLION$ now includes two editions that crowned Baron as the champion.

Baron topped a field of 204 entries to claim the Super MILLION$ Episode 40 title.

Baron adds second Super MILLION$ title to his resume

Baron’s poker achievements include a WSOP bracelet win, an EPT title, and a win in a 2019 Poker Masters event. He’s ranked among the top 200 all-time earners on the Hendon Mob career tournament earnings list.

Baron strikes a ubiquitous presence in the Super MILLION$, with Episode 40 marking his 26th appearance in the weekly $10,300 buy-in event. Tuesday’s action represented Baron’s third final table run among those 26 appearances, and ended in his second win.

Someone was going to come out of the final heads-up battle between Baron and Bruno Volkmann (2nd – $318,042) as a two-time Super MILLION$ champ.

Volkmann’s Super MILLION$ stats now include five final table appearances, with a win in the Sep. 22, 2020 edition of the tournament. Volkmann came up just short of his second Super MILLION$ win with Tuesday’s runner-up finish.

Super MILLION$ Episode 40 featured an uncharacteristic number of real-name-unknown players at the final table. ‘25th Baam’ (3rd – $245,244) became the first final table contender to play from Japan in the history of the Super MILLION$.

Pablo Silva (4th – $189,109), ‘Beast2018’ (5th – $145,823), and ‘7ingls7’ (6th – $112,444) all came away with top-six finishes, all earning six figures with those deep runs.

The lower part of the final table payout ladder included familiar names. Russia’s Gleb Tremzin (7th – $86,706) and GGPoker regular ‘Nator’ (8th – $66,860) bowed out before the payout structure jumped to the six-figure level.

Damian Salas (9th – $51,556), the 2020 World Series of Poker Main Event champion, finished ninth.
