Ludovic Geilich wins partypoker LIVE MILLIONS
Ludovic Geilich emerged victorious in the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Grand Final Open for €250,000 prize. This winning is the Geilich's second largest cash winning his entire career in live tournaments.
The tournament saw 1,716 entrants who played four starting flights with a buy-in of €1,100 for a €1 million guaranteed event. Out of which 207 players took a share of the prizepool for their efforts with a min-cash of €2,700.
Some notable players made in the money including Andrew “stato_1” Hulme (188th for €3,000), Martin Jacobson (185th for €3,000), Darryll Fish (143rd for €3,500), Team partypoker’s Anatoly Filatov (130th for €4,000), Maria Ho (128th for €4,000), Jason Wheeler (119th for €4,000), Team partypoker’s Richard Dubini (88th for €4,750), Anthony Spinella (37th for €6,500), and Alex Goulder (28th for €6,500).
It was Finland’s Jani Vilmunen who was the first elimination at the final table walking away with €15,000. Vilmunen was one of two World Series of Poker bracelet winners seated at this table. He won the £5,250 Pot-Limit Omaha event at 2009 WSOP Europe held in London. The second bracelet winner was also Geilich's headsup opponent. Joey Weissman took down the $2,500 No Limit Holdem event in 2012 in Las Vegas and he didn't do too badly for himself in this tournament either. Eventually, having to settle for runner-up position, Weissman collected €155,000 for his efforts as Geilich walked away with the biggest payday and title.
