Lev Gottlieb wins GG Spring Festival Super MILLION$ for $586,074
This week’s special GG Spring Festival edition of the $10,300 buy-in Super MILLION$ featured the typical final table lineup of crushers in the traditional No-Limit Hold’em format. In the end, however, a Short Deck expert emerged with the win and a super-sized payday.
Lev ‘LevMeAlone’ Gottlieb earned his first Super MILLION$ title, wrapping up the win Tuesday over a field of 312 entries. Gottlieb took home $586,074 for the win as the first week of the GG Spring Festival plays on.
Gottlieb is no stranger to poker’s most popular game, as Super MILLION$ Episode 43 marked his 19th appearance in the weekly GGPoker tournament. He’s better known for his Short Deck prowess, however, with a resume that includes a WSOP bracelet win from the $10,000 Short Deck No-Limit Hold’em Championship in last year’s GGPoker WSOP Online Bracelet Events series.
Tuesday marked Gottlieb’s first final table run in the Super MILLION$, and he finished the deal with a win that awarded his biggest career cash at GGPoker.
