German high-stakes crusher adds a $317,740 first-place prize to the resume
The weekly Super MILLION$ High Roller on GGPoker continues to play out as perhaps the toughest regularly-scheduled weekly tournament in the world of poker. The latest edition of the $10,300 proved no different, with one of the world’s top tournament players taking the championship.
German high-stakes regular Ole Schemion took home this week’s title, winning $317,740 after coming out victorious through a loaded final-table field. Schemion started the day as a longshot to come out as the winner, entering final table play with just under 18 big blinds.
In a final-table lineup that included top-flight competition like Matthias Eibinger, Stephen Chidwick, ‘Nator’, and Sean Winter, Schemion managed to spin up that short stack, eventually coming away with the victory. Schemion outlasted ‘MrGambol’ (2nd – $246,440) in the heads-up battle as this week’s Super MILLION$ High Roller played to a finish Tuesday.
Schemion tops ‘MrGambol’ and Matthias Eibinger in three-handed play
Other top finishers included Eibinger (3rd – $191,139), as the Austrian pro and co-founder of Pokercode took home his latest six-figure cash. Eibinger started the day as the final table chip leader, with a commanding stack of just under 94 big blinds. ‘MrGambol’ was the closest competitor, with 56 big blinds.
At the time of his third-place elimination, however, Eibinger was looking up at both Schemion and ‘MrGambol’ in the chip counts. Eibinger’s final hand began with the blinds at 80,000/160,000 and Eibinger holding 6♠6♣ in the big blind.
Schemion opened to 320,000 from the button with A♦7♥, ‘MrGambol’ folded, and Eibinger quickly shoved for his 2,166,540 total stack. Schemion, who had Eibinger covered by a 2-to-1 margin to start the hand, made the call.
The runout fell J♥4♥K♥9♥3♣, with Schemion’s turned heart flush ending the tournament run for Eibinger.
The resulted heads-up battle lasted just under 20 minutes, and the final hand played out at 100,000/200,000 blind levels. Schemion picked up K♥K♠ in the big blind, and the hand began with ‘MrGambol’ opening to 400,000 with 5♣5♦ from the button.
Schemion three-bet to 1.2 million, and ‘MrGambol’ four-bet shoved over the top for just under 5.2 million. Schemion, with about a 2-to-1 chip advantage, made the call, with his pocket kings in dominant position.
The runout provided no help for ‘MrGambol’, as the board played out 7♣9♦A♥T♥9♣ and clinched the tournament win for Schemion.
Another fierce final table for the GGPoker Super MILLION$ High Roller
Other top finishers in the Super MILLION$ High Roller included Stephen Chidwick (4th – $148,248), who finished in the top four in the tournament for the second straight week. Last week’s Super MILLION$ High Roller saw Chidwick come up just short of a win, settling for a second-place finish behind tournament winner ‘blakjak19’.
This week’s edition of the High Roller saw final table runs from Philippe DAuteuil (5th – $114,982), Brunno Albuquerque (6th – $89,180), ‘Nator’ (7th – $69,168), Winter (8th – $53,647) and David Miscikowski (9th – $41,608).
