The partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Grand Final Barcelona festival is in full swing and we already have two champions crowned.
Andreas Eiler is €700,000 richer than a couple of days ago courtesy of him winning the first of two €25,500 Super High Roller events. Eighth-eight entries means the €2 million guarantee was surpassed by €134,000 and it was the top nine finishers who got their hands on some prize money for their €25,500 investment.
Turkey’s Orpen Kisacikoglu bust in ninth-place for €60,000, the same sum Team partypoker’s Kristen Bicknell was awarded for finishing in eighth. Bicknell’s boyfriend, the immensely talented Alex Foxen, fell in seventh-place for €90,000 with Byron Kaverman of the United States finishing in sixth-place to pick up €120,000, the first six-figure score of the event.
Two Spanish players in the shape of Juan Pardo Dominguez and Adrian Mateos then bust in fifth and fourth-place for €150,000 and €204,000 respectively, before the legendary Erik Seidel crashed out in third for a €300,000 score.
Heads-up saw Eiler battle with fellow German Rainer Kempe and it was the former who emerged victorious thanks to his ace-nine prevailing against Kempe’s ace-six.

Davidi Kitai wins the second €25,500 Super High Roller
Belgian superstar Davidi Kitai, who is to become a father later this year, made a late decision to play in the second €25,500 Super High Roller and it was a decision that turned out to be golden.
Kitai arrived into Barcelona quite late after attending a friend’s wedding and was not going to register for the second of the €25,500 Super High Roller. He had a good feeling about the event, bought in and now he’s turned his €25,500 into a cool €700,000.
Making the victory even sweeter was the fact Kitai found himself trailing Juan Pardo Dominguez, who earlier finished fifth in the other €25,500 Super High Roller, 7:1 in chips, but managed to claw his way back into contention before brushing aside his Spanish opponent to take the title.
A coinflip decided where the trophy was heading, Kitai’s pocket sixes holding against the queen-jack of Pardo, who you may know as “Malakastyle” in online poker circles.
