Seiji Secures MILLIONS Online 6-Max PKO Championship Title

12 days ago

Brazil’s Rodrigo Seiji is the latest PartyPoker star to walk away with a MILLIONS Online title and a huge sum of money after taking down the $1,050 buy-in MILLIONS Online #10 6-Max PKO Championship.

The high-stakes event drew in 534 players, who helped ensure the $500,000 guaranteed was surpassed by $34,000. Seventy-nine players returned to the PartyPoker virtual felt on September 19 knowing they were only a few hours of poker away from being crowned a MILLIONS Online champion.

Team PartyPoker’s Yuri Dzivielevski reached the final day but busted relatively early on. Also missing out on a spot at the seven-handed final table were players such as Alex Kulev, Ole Schemion, Sami Kelopuro, our very own Jaime Staples, and Samuel Vousden.

Malta-based Swedish star Joakim Andersson was the first of the seven finalists to bow out. The action started with Timo Kamphues min-raising to 2,400,000 in the cutoff with , Marius Kudzmanas flat-calling on the button with , and Anderson calling from the big blind with . A flop reading saw the action check to Kudzmanas, who bet 2,880,000, and only Andersson called. The turn saw Andersson check, Kudzmanas move all-in, and Andersson call off what was a little over a pot-sized bet. Andersson was in front, but the river counterfeited Andersson’s hand, and he was gone.

Sixth-place went to Team PartyPoker’s Patrick Leonard, who sat down at the final table with a short stack. Leonard raised to 4,800,000, leaving himself a shade under 1,200,000 behind. Leonard called off those chips when Kampheus three-bet enough to set Leonard all-in. It was for Leonard and the dominated for Kamphues. Four diamonds on the board improved Kampheus to an unlikely flush, and sent Leonard to the rail.

Kamphues was the next casualty of the final table. He lost a series of posts to leave him busing a short stack, but kept managing to keep his head above water. That was until a battle of the blinds with Seiji resulted in Kamphues heading for the exits. The action folded to Seiji in the small blind and he open-shoved for 15 big blinds effective, doing so with . Kampheus instantly called all-in with and looked set for anther double-up. However, the community cards had other ideas, and they fell .

Fourth place was decided soon after Kamphues’ demise, and it went to Kudzmanas. Seiji open-jammed from the button with what turned out to be , and Kudzmanas called off his last ten big blinds with from the small blind. Seiji increased his stack when the board ran .

The remaining three players guaranteed themselves not only a sizeable cash prize from the pot but also a Party Ape NFT for their efforts, a cool prize to say the least. Third-place was as deep as Malta’s Ricardo Arraiano would progress. Of course, it was Seiji that eliminated Arraiano.

From the button, Arraiano moved all-in for 8.5 big blinds with , and Seiji called from the big blind with , creating one of tournament poker’s many coinflips. The flip went Seiji’s way courtesy of the run out.

That hand gave Seiji a monster-sized chip advantage over Finland’s Andreas Nasman; Seiji held 455,786,576 chips to Nasman’s 71,552,528. The difference in stacks proved too much for Nasman to overcome, and he ultimately fell in second place.

The final hand was typical of how Seiji had been running at the final table. Nasman made it 5,500,000 to go with and called with Seiji three-bet to 18,750,000 with the superior . The flop saw Seiji lead for 12,582,900, and Nasman call. Seiji checked the turn before calling the 10,000,000 stab from Nasman. Seiji checked again on the river, before instantly calling the 37,697,156 shove from Nasman.
