Arraiano Captures Super 500 PKO Title; Double Final Table for Theologis

2 months ago

Two more PartyPoker players can forever refer to themselves as MILLIONS Online champions after coming out on top of the Super 500 PKO and Super 100 PKO events. Malta’s Ricardo Arraiano won the $530 buy-in Super 500 PKO for a cool $69,315, while Emiliano Ricchini of Argentina was crowned the $109 buy-in Super 100 PKO champion, an accolade that came with $31,765 in prize money, with bounties included.

It was also a night of mixed emotions for Alexandros Theologis. The Austria-based Greek star and winner of a MILLIONS Online Mix-Max event in March 2021 and the WPT500 Knockout champion in September 2021, reached both the Super 500 and Super 100 final table, but fell short of taking them both down.

MILLIONS Online #11 Super 500 PKO attracted 1,107 players to the PartyPoker virtual felt ,and 166 of those starters were present and correct at the start of Day 2. Elite-level grinders including Claas Segebrecht, Sami Kelopuro, Team PartyPoker’s Patrick Leonard, Jeffrey “MaximusBlack” Johnson, and Jaime Staples, plus Niklas Astedt, Ivan Luca, and Christian Rudolph cashed yet failed to navigate their way to the seven-handed final table.

Vojtech Skalak, the winner of the MILLIONS Online Opener PKO event, burst the final table bubble when he crashed out in eighth place.

Seventh-place and a combined $10,389 went to Canadian grinder Rayan Chamas. He was joined on the list of busted players first by Argentinian superstar Damian Salas ($9,234), Lucas Rocha ($19,396), and United Kingdom-based Norwegian Preben Stokkan ($21,947).

Then came the untimely demise of Alexandros Theologis, whose elimination in third place came with a $26,512 score, and left Ricardo Arraiano heads-up against Ukraine’s Andrii Derzhypilskyi.

The heads-up duo each locked in almost $36,000 from the main prize pool, leaving the gigantic final bounties to play for. Arraiano got his hands on that huge final payment, one worth $33,317, taking his total haul to an impressive $69,315. Derzhypilskyi headed into the night with a total payout weighing in at $40,636.

Ricchini Reels In Super 100 PKO Top Prize

A bumper field of 3,494 PartyPoker players created a guarantee-busting $349,400 prize pool in MILLIONS Online #12 Super 100 PKO, and Argentina’s Emiliano Ricchini reeled in $31,765 of that impressive sum.

Day 2 of this $109 buy-in affair saw 517 players return to their seats, each sharing the same common goal of becoming a MILLIONS Online champion. Of course, that goal ended prematurely for all but Ricchini, but they all saw a return on their initial investments.

Four of the seven finalists received five-figure hauls for their efforts. Adrian Kinecki ($3,900), Lee West ($5,902), and Anderson Frank-Graham ($9,270) may have missed out on a $10,000+ score yet still padded their bankrolls with sizeable amounts.

The first five-figure prize went to Alexandros Theologis after his Super 100 PKO run ended in a fourth-place finish. It rounded off an impressive evening for the Greek star, having finished third in the Super 500 PKO event.

Brazil’s Joao Bincolini netted $16,109 after busting in third, which left his fellow countryman Matheus Grazziotin one-on-one with Ricchini. The heads-up battle went Ricchini’s way, and he secured a $31,765 prize, leaving Grazziotin to collect a still very respectable $22,772 runner-up score.
