Artur Martirosian was eighth out of nine in chips at the current GGPoker Super MILLION$ final table when PokerNews wondered whether he might win a record sixth championship. The answer was eventually negative, but the super-talented Russian finished second to the Netherlands’ “WouldIlieToYOU,” who won their second Super MILLION$ and a cool $357,739.
Results of the GGPoker Super MILLION$ Final Table
|7||Tyler “TheRayGuy” Cornell||Mexico||$83,127|
Aleksejs Ponakovs was the first finalist to be eliminated in the opening 10 minutes of play. WouldIlieToYou raised from under the gun to 80,000, Ponakovs raised to 340,000, leaving about the same amount of chips behind, and called when WouldIlieToYou put him all-in. WouldIlieToYou turned over the ace-king, crushing Ponakovs’ ace-nine. Ponakovs was eliminated after the five communal cards failed to change the outcome of the hand.
After a collision with Wiktor Malinowski, Ramiro Petrone found himself on the wrong side of the rail. In the hijack, the action folded to Malinowski, who raised to 120,000. Petrone made the decision from the big blind. Petrone checked the jack-eight-seven all-spade flop, Malinowski bet 60,000, and Petrone check-raise 180,000. Malinowski phoned. As the queen of clubs fell on the turn, both players gazed on.
Petrone risked 600,000 of his 623,640 stack before going all-in when Malinowski called. With the ace of spades, Petrone revealed pocket aces, but Malinowski had flopped a flush with a straight flush redraw with his queen-ten. Petrone bowed out when the river bricked.

Tyler “TheRayGuy” Cornell, World Series of Poker bracelet winner, finished seventh. Cornell was eliminated after landing a straight on the river with ten-nine after Malinowski flopped a full house with his queen-jack. Cornell doubled up, but then open-shoved for 14 big blinds on the button with ten-nine and was defeated by Malinowski’s king-ten.
The last six were reduced to five when “spaise411” of Russia discovered fresh air where his chips formerly stood. When Spaise411 saw ace-ten under the gun and opted to play for stacks, they were down to 11 large blinds. Unfortunately for Martirosian, he woke up with pocket aces in the cutoff, and spaise411 was drawing dead by the turn, despite collecting the Super MILLION$ first six-figure payoff.
The second player to go was the day’s chip leader, Roman Novoselov, who busted following a nasty hand featuring Martirosian. Martirosian raised to 160,000 from the cutoff, and Novoselov called in the big blind. On the eight-queen-ten flip, which displayed two diamonds, Novoselov check-called a 135,000 continuation bet. The turn card was the six of diamonds, and Novoselov led for 264,598, to which Martirosian called. The community cards were completed by an offsuit nine, and Novoselov checked. Martirosian risked enough to force his opponent all-in, and Novoselov called off his 1,133,759 chips immediately. Novoselov showed an ace-deuce of diamonds, but Martirosian had a straight flush with to his nine-seven of diamonds. Ouch.
Martirosian increased bankroll
When he eliminated Pablo Silva in the fourth, Martirosian increased his bankroll. Martirosian called in the big blind after Silva min-raised to 200,000 in the blinds. On the flop of king-nine-five, both players checked, resulting in a four on the turn. Silva matched the 650,000 bet made by Martirosian. Martirosian shoved in response to a deuce on the river, and Silva called all-in with a pot-sized stack. Silva displayed queen-nine, but Martirosian flipped two pairs with his hot-running king-five.
When Malinowski was eliminated by WouldIlieToYou, who limped in the small blind, and Malinowski checked, heads-up was established. WouldIlieToYou led for 100,000 on a seven-five-ace flip, and Malinowski called. Similar action occurred with a deuce on the turn: WouldIlieToYou bet 328.125, and Malinowski called. When the six of clubs was dealt, WouldIlieToYou bet enough to force Malinowski to go all-in. Malinowski, who had queen-seven and thought WouldIlieToYou holding an ace, called off his 922,888 chips. Malinowski was sent to the showers because WouldIlieToYou did not have an ace but did have a pair of tens in the hole.
Going into heads-up, Martirosian had a chip advantage of 12,043,315 to 5,556,685 over WouldIlieToYou, and a sixth Super MILLION$ appeared imminent. WouldIlieToYou, on the other hand, had other ideas. WouldIlieToYou doubled up when Martirosian called a bluff with ten-nine after WouldIlieToYou had flopped trip fours, placing the ball in the hands of the Dutch star.
WouldIlieToYou limp-called when Martirosian raked in 2,535,177 chips with ace-four on the penultimate hand, which happened during the 70,000/140,000/17,500a level. When the five communal cards ran out queen-high, WouldIlieToYou had pocket sixes.
WouldIlieToYou won his second Super MILLION$ championship, barely beating martirosian to become the first player to win six.
