Millions Online Main Event Final Table Recap

Andras Nemeth came onto the final table with a nine-figure stack but was the first player to leave the table. The Hungarian poker player shipped in his stack with ace-jack offsuit and was called by Petrone from the small blind with pocket tens. Nemeth hit his jack on the flop while his opponent had a gut-shot straight draw. Petrone made his straight on river to get the first elimination of the day and Nemeth collected $69,767 for his Main Event run.

There was then back-to-back bust outs as Igor Dunsel moved in preflop with ace-jack offsuit only to get called by Steven van Zadelhoff with ace-king. Dunsel failed to connect on the runout and picked up $88,327 for his eighth-place finish. Orpen Kisacikoglu was then on the wrong side of a flip against Dominguez, whose pair of threes remained best. Kisacikoglu, who finished eighth in last week's 2021 EPT Online Main Event, claimed the first six-figure prize of $111,313.

Fabio Luongo was the next player who was all-in and at risk versus fellow Canadian Sebastian Sikorski. Luongo held the bogey-hand of the day, ace-jack, and was hoping it would be third time's. In a 200 million chip pot, Sikorski's ace-queen reigned supreme meaning his compatriot would have to settle for the $141,031 payout.

Petrone and Sikorksi got their second knockouts of the day after Petrone's aces held against the pocket fours of Christopher Brice.Sikorski would then make it three-handed play after outflopping Van Zadelhoff's pair of fives. Three became two after a blind on blind battle between Dominguez and Sikorski. The latter had the shorter stack and would need some assistance to leapfrog Dominguez's queens, no help arrived and Sikorksi pocketed $406,793 for his performance.

Heads up play was a close affair for much of it's duration but that all changed after Petrone rivered a better flush to have a 4:! chip lead over Dominguez. A few hands after Petrone would be crowned the winner after he made another flush while Dominguez flopped top pair. The Argentinian bet the flop and turn before putting his opponent all-in on the river to which Dominguez called-off the remainder of his stack. The runner-up took home $591,687, which comes just a few days after he won the WSOPC Series: $25,500 Sunday Million Super HR for $431,319.

It would also be another significant 2021 online tournament victory for Petrone who took down a GGPoker Super MILLION$ tournament in October for $267,285. Congratulations to Ramiro Petrone on becoming the He became the rightful owner of the 2021 partypoker Millions Online Main Event.
