In “from grass to grace “ fashion, Littlemonk was able to turn a satellite ticket into a Super Million$ title. The Dutch poker player is now one of the several players to win such a prestigious title. However, the fact that he bought in using a satellite ticket, makes his victory even more remarkable.
Interestingly, LittleMonk earned his ticket after emerging victorious in a $1,050 satellite; astronomically increasing his ROI after taking down the tournament.
Littlemonk dominates Final table
The final table was nothing short of exciting.
It did not take long before the first elimination of the day. Konstantin Maslak was the short stack at the start of the 9-handed play. Desperate to double up, Maslak found himself in the deep end against Daniel Dvoress. Dvoress flopped a flush while Maslak flopped a set. Maslak shoved and was called by Dvoress. Both players failed to improve their hands and hence Maslak was eliminated.
Soon after, Andrei Konopelko was eliminated in eighth place by Brunno Botteon. He was rewarded with $58, 488.
After a few hands, Nikolaos Lampropoulos’ stack was reduced to just 21,000 chips. The blinds at the time were 30,000/60,000/7,500. However, he managed to impressively build his stack back up to $230,000; only to lose a toss-up against Dvoress. Dvoress paired his Jack-seven on the river while Lampropoulos failed to improve his Ace-Jack hand.
Dvoress’ impressive showing was however ended abruptly by LittleMonk. Littlemonk and Dvoress had Ace-King and Ace-Jack respectively. The stronger kicker won the battle and Dvoress was sent to the virtual rails.
After an uneventful couple of hands, Vicente Delgado was “literary” called into action. Delgado moved all-in with jack-ten and was called by LittleMonk with Q-8. Delgado flopped a pair while LittleMonk flopped two pairs to set stage for a bruising battle. LittleMonk turned a full house while Delgado missed all his limited outs. Delgado was eliminated in fifth place.
Four-handed play did not last long. “Pandora-Box” luck run out and was eliminated by Kovalski in fourth place. He was soon followed by Botteon after he was eliminated by LittleMonk.
Littlemonk capped his wholesome performance by eliminating Kovalski in second place. LittleMonk fought from a 1:2 chip disadvantage to become the new Super Million$ champion.
