The 2021 GG Spring Festival will see the conclusion of one of the flagship tournaments today. Out of a massive field of 1,089 entries, only nine players remain in the GGSF Super MILLION$ ME-H: $10,300 and will battle for the biggest slice of the $10,890,000 prize pool. They have $192,201 locked up for the efforts but all sights are set on the top prize of $1,537,605.
Best-positioned to claim the largest prize of the entire festival so far is a former Super MILLION$ champion in Joakim Andersson. The Vienna-based grinder returns with a meaty stack of 31,727,557, which represents 105 big blinds when the action resumes at 6 pm GMT. Second in chips is India's "level29" with 22,041,776 followed by Julian Stuer with a stack of 15,894,312.
A whole lot of notables made the cut as Roman "RRomashka" Emelyanov, Darrell Goh, Stevan "Steve Austin" Chew, Alex Foxen, Gergely "Land on it!" Kulcsar, and Taylor Paur will also return for their shot at glory.
The FInal Table Line-Up
|Position||Player||Country||Chip Count||Big Blinds|
|4||Roman "RRomashka" Emelyanov||Russia||8,691,020||29|
|6||Stevan "Steve Austin" Chew||Australia||7,026,744||23|
|7||Alex Foxen||United States||6,281,784||20|
|8||Gergely "Land on it!" Kulcsar||Hungary||5,797,126||19|
|9||Taylor Paur||United States||2,921,424||9|
The blinds will be rolled back to 150,000-300,000 with a running ante of 35,000, which ensures an average stack of at least 40 blinds for feature events on GGPoker. That will put bottom stack Paur on nine blinds while Kulcsar and Foxen have 19 and 20 big blinds respectively. Unlike all Day 1s and Day 2, the levels will now feature 20 hands each until a winner is crowned.
This event will also be streamed with cards-up coverage and commentary on a 30-minute delay on the GGPoker.tv Twitch channel. As a result, all PokerNews updates will also be published on a delay to not spoil any of the action. The posts will include all showdown hands while the live stream has all player holdings visible to the viewers.
