Andreas Eiler Wins First MILLIONS Barcelona SHR
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.
