When it comes to online poker gaming, most top-rated sites offer poker tournaments, including major series. Each of these events have buy-ins but the poker site will also provide satellites or qualifiers, so players have a shot at winning a seat to a big event at a much lower price. The latest GGPoker Super MILLION$ hosted satellites and online player LittleMonk from the Netherlands earned his spot via a satellite option.
The cheaper seat paid off as the online player was able to win the event, adding just under $300,000 to his bankroll! LittleMonk defeated Fabiano Kovalski in heads-up to earn the first-place prize.
Details of the Series
The final table of the online poker event would whittle down rather quickly, eventually leaving LittleMonk and Kovalski to compete in heads-up. Kovalski would have a large chip lead with just over 10 million to LittleMonk’s 4.9 million.
The two would go at it as the last ones standing and it would not be long before a key hand changed the momentum in LittleMonk’s favor. With King-8 of diamonds, LittleMonk would raise to 320,000. Kovalski called with a three-bet of 1,150,000. He held Ace-Queen.
The flop was King high, with Kovalski betting 772,200. LittleMonk pushed with 4.8 million in chips. Kovalski called and lost the pot, which was 11 million in size. Now, LittleMonk has the upper hand and by the next level, the final hand of the event would go down.
On the last hand, Kovalski bet 200,000 while holding K-7. LittleMonk three-bet which put his opponent all-in. LittleMonk held pocket fives and it was enough to win the board of nine-high. The online poker player was able to claim the title win after earning his spot via satellite at GGPoker!
