Melker Larsson goes into the latest GGPoker Super MILLION$ final table in the envious position as chip leader but victory is far from assured thanks to three former Super MILLION$ champion reaching the same final table.
Super MILLION$ Final Table Chips Counts

We Entered GGPoker’s Softest Poker Tournament – This is What We Found
This is only Larsson’s second appearance in a Super MILLION$ event and the first time he’s managed to make it into the money places. He returns with more than 20% of the chips in play and is guaranteed to more than double his $43,961 in GGPoker winnings. Larsson is also guaranteed to have an incredible ROI from this event. He won a $100 satellite into a $1,000 satellite, which he turned into a $10,000 seat. What a story it would be if Larsson emerged victorious later on this evening.
The man in second place at the restart is one of three former Super MILLION$ champions still in the hunt for the near $410,000 top prize. Ole Schemion, who is in for four bullets, won this tournament on October 18, 2020 and banked $317,740. Schemion has $2,642,075 in winnings from GGPoker tournaments and is guaranteed t add at least $51,050 more to that impressive haul even if the unthinkable happens and he is the first player out of the door.

David Yan is sure to have plenty of people tuning into the live stream of the Super MILLION$ final table thanks to selling 29.4% of his action to 29 investors in the free-to-use GGPoker staking facility. This is the third time Yan has navigated his way to the final table, with both previous visits ending in fifth-place finishes. Completing a hat trick of fifth-place exits would net Yan $144,393.
Canada’s Mike Watson hasn’t ever won the Super MILLION$ but it has been kind to him. Watson has played all 33 events to date and has accumulated $781,257 in winnings from them. A huge chunk, namely $498,713, of those winnings stem from a third-place finish on November 15, 2020. Watson returns to the action fourth in chips with a shade over 46 big blinds.
Luke Reeves is another former Super MILLION$ champion having triumphed in this high stakes tournament on December 10, 2020. Reeves collected $381,241 on that occasion, which makes up the bulk of his $402,763 winnings from this event. Reeves ditched tournaments for a while to concentrate on crushing cash games but is back on the MTT grind and has every chance of victory today.
Flip & Go Tournaments “Incredibly Easy” says Daniel Negreanu
Sitting down in sixth place at the restart is Canada’s Daniel Dvoress. You may recall Dvoress won the Millionaire Maker online at GGPoker this summer and walked away with a coveted gold bracelet and $1,489,289 in prize money. He’s played all but one of the Super MILLION$ and this is his fifth cash and fourth appearance at the final table. Dvoress’ best results in this event are a brace of seventh-place exits and a fifth-place finish. Can he get the job done this time around?
One man to look out for is Finnish sensation Eelis Parssinen. The Finn has reached his third Super MILLION$ final table and is looking to go one place deeper than his previous best. Parssinen finished second in back-to-back tournaments in December making him a shrewd choice in the final table betting. Parssinen is available at odds of 12.4 right now. He may be in seventh place but he still has more than 29 big blinds in his stack.
“WanYu” is a name followers of the high roller scene will be aware of but they hope to put themselves on the map globally with a victory today. This is the first time WanYu has cashed in seven attempts. They won a $1,000 satellite to take their seat in this huge event and are now only eight eliminations away from a $408,406 score. WanYu sits down eighth in chips but still has plenty of room to manoeuvrer when the final table gets underway.
Former champion Connor Drinan is the player bringing up the rear at the restart. Drinan won this very event in September last year and scooped $1,435,048, a massive prize thanks to that tournament being part of the WSOP online festival. He has the most work to do of any of his fellow finalists, but Drinan will be confident of turning his fortunes around, especially since he banked $63,000 with a third-place finish in the Global MILLION$ while reaching this final table.
