The keenly awaited partypoker MILLIONS Main Event in Rozvadov has finally concluded after a 14-hour session on the final day of play. If the event itself wasn’t newsworthy enough, guaranteeing 5 million euros in prize money, the name of the winner certainly created some headlines. The event began with 1,022 players buying in for €5,300, ensuring the ambitious guarantee was met, and created a large field for players to attempt to navigate. The final figure for the prize pool was €5,000,000.
Despite the incredible challenge that comes with trying to win a tournament with this buy in and field size, the man who was arguably the most talented in the field emerged as the champion. Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom outlasted them all, taking down this impressive title and adding €850,000 to his all-time winnings.
If seeing Isildur1 win the event was a treat for those watching, seeing the manner in which he ended the heads-up duel was truly scintillating. The online legend made an outstanding hero call to end it, adding a touch of extra class to the victory and further underlining his credentials as one of the best players to have ever played the game.
Isildur1 Call Of The Year commented by joeingram1
The other notable name to come close to the final table was Adrian Mateos who finished in 12th. The organisers must have been delighted to see Isildur1 bring the stardust to the table and take the title.
