Andreas Eiler Wins First MILLIONS Barcelona SHR

Posted On 09 Apr, 2018 0

The first partypoker Live MILLIONS Barcelona Super High Roller has concluded at the Casino Barcelona, and Germany's poker pro Andreas Eiler shipped the tournament for a massive prize of €700,000 for first place. The MILLIONS Grand Finale marks the end of the MILLIONS season, and the series is scheduled to be played between 7th and 15th April 2018.

Event #2 was the €25k buy-in Super High Roller, and this event saw a total of 88 entries, creating a prizepool of over €2 million. Some of the best poker pros from around the world took part in this super high roller event, including 2017 Female Player of the Year Kristen Bicknell, who is having a great run at the moment.

For Eiler, this win became the second biggest live poker win of his career. Late last year, he scored a massive €2,155,418 at the WSOPE One Drop event in Rozvadov. This latest win of €700,000 (~ $861,644) has taken his career winnings past the $4 million mark.

He reached heads up against his countryman Rainer Kempe, a pro who has over $15 million in live cashes, following the €450,000 he took home here, for second place. The table also consisted of Erik Seidel, a player who is second on the list of all-time poker earnings. However, Eiler managed to overpower them all, after holding the chip lead at the end of Day 1 as well.

Final results:

  1. Andreas Eiler - €700,000               
  2. Rainer Kempe - €450,000              
  3. Erik Seidel - €300,000     
  4. Adrian Mateos - €204,000            
  5. Juan Pardo Dominguez - €150,000            
  6. Byron Kaverman - €120,000         
  7. Alexander Foxen - €90,000          
  8. Kristen Bicknell - €60,000              
  9. Orpen Kisacikoglu - €60,000
