13th May 2007

The Poker Stars Millions tournament this week attracted 5,918 players generating a $1,183,600 prize pool, giving the winner $187,995 first place prize and paying up to 810 places, numbers were a little down this week compared to previous weeks with a number of big events happening at the same time on the other rival poker rooms including Full Tilts FTOPS series 4 event.

Owen ‘ocrowe’Crowe had the chip lead with $14 million in chips going into the start of the final table a quite healthy lead that he could sit and wait for players to fall.

It was Chimpy07 was the first to go, going all in holding :6h :6c but was called and dominated by Duy The Master calling with :9h :9d the pocket 9’s held up with the board coming down :as :9s :8c :kc :kd giving Duy the full house, Chimpy07 took the $7,811 for 9th place.

Drama was next to go, Holdem 888 called an all in from Drama holding :ad :9h against :ah :7h the dominating hand held up again with the board showing :3s :qh :6d :5d :10d Drama going out in 8th winning $12,427.

Mcc3991 unluckily was the next to go, he was the big favourite all in pre flop with :ac :ah against Himclip85 holding :js :jc the flop was very kind to Himclip85 giving him the set coming down :3c :kh :jh Mcc3991 needed an A on the turn and river to turn it around but it never came with :6s :2d coming down knocking him out in 7th winning $20,713.

We had to wait for a few hands before we had our next casualty, Ocrowe beat KattKronen who was short stacked calling the raise from Ocrowe. KattKronen was in the lead holding :ah :9d against :ks :4d The flop was no help to either coming down :5h :7h :10s but the river cracked KattKronen’s lead with the :kh on the river sent KattKronen out with the :8c and he took home $28,998 6th prize.

The next short stacked player Bachelor was next to go, moving all in holding :9c :8h was quickly called by Himclip85 holding :8d :8s The board came down :3d :3h :ac :jh :4c knocking him out in 5th winning $40,242.

Ocrowe went shortly after against Duy The Master, both he and Duy had limped in pre flop, the flop had come :8h :10h :8d when Ocrowe moved all in holding :9d :7d which was quickly called by Duy holding :6d :6s The pocket sixes held up with the turn :2h and river :8c giving Duy the full house, Ocrowe cashed $52,078 in 4th for his trouble.

The three remaining players decided to split the remaining prize pool and leave $30,000 for the winner. Holdem888 quickly reduced the field to two players first taking a big pot off Duy and the very next hand knocking him out of the tournament in 3rd taking home just over $95,000.

Both players moved all in after the flop came down :3d :qd :3s showing the flush draw, but Holdem888 was behind playing against :kd :6d with his :jd :8d but the turn put Holdem888 in the lead though coming down :8h and the :6c on the river was no good to Duy.

Heads up play for the remaining $30,000 went quickly which was helped by Holdem888’s chip lead. Calling an all in move holding :ah :3s against :ad :jh it wasn’t looking too good for Holdem888 until the board hit him on the flop coming down :3s :kc :8d Holdem888 took the money with the turn :10s and river :9h giving him 1st place and a nice $141,000 dollars

Final standings:
> 1st $141,519 Holdem888
> 2nd $109,929 Himclip85
