The Mega Millions Finals take place every Tuesday in the GGPoker room. The $10,300 buy-in is only for high rollers, so you can often spot celebrities in the finals. But this time, there were more regular players than legends in the finals.
Exception: Benjamin Rolle, who finished fourth. He was knocked down by Ognjan Dimov with a set of nine, while Rolle only had two pairs. A few minutes later, Ognian went one-on-one.
In heads-up action, the Bulgarian met Jans Arends Austria. Ognian’s chip advantage was 98BB to 64BB. Gradually, Arends’s chips were getting smaller and smaller. On the final hand, the Austrian went all-in with Q-J and Dimov responded with a call with A-2. A straight flopped and the Bulgarian poker player won.
Dimov took home $461,000 for the win, with the runner-up adding $335,000 to his coffers. Next Tuesday, we expect a new winner in the Mega Millions.
