Lithuania has a MILLIONS Online champion after Gedimas Uselis triumphed in the $1,050 MILLIONS Online #25 Closer event.
Some 583 players bought in across a trio of starting flights, which ensured the $500,000 guarantee was surpassed by $83,000. Half of the $583,000 pot went on the heads of each entrant, with top 87 finishers sharing the remaining 50%.
Each of the seven partypoker players who reached the final table did so having locked up a five-figure prize when bounties were included. Stewart Kirby of the United Kingdom busted his seventh-place, the first elimination of the final table, and collected $10,703.
Stoyan Kitanov ($16,025), Harald Sammer ($18,027), and Audrius Staekelis ($20,0213) were the next players to head for the exits. Third-place and a combined $33,391 went to the Swedish superstar Simon Mattsson, whose exit left Luan Barbosa and Uselis heads-up for the title.
Both players secured more than $40,000 from the main prize pool but there was the not-so-small matter of the final bounty payments to decide. Uselis defeated Barbosa and saw his $40,199 main prize pool prize boosted by an incredible $58,410 worth of bounties. Barbosa’s second-place finish saw him reel in a $54,496 total prize.

Kolinkovskiy Denies Schemion High Roller Turbo Title
Pavlo Kolinkovskyi came out on top of a star-studded field in the $5,200 High Roller Turbo and secured a $74,502 payout.
Only nine of the 42 entrants received a slice of the $230,000 prize pool, Sam Greenwood being the unfortunate soul who burst the money bubble. Arseniy Malinov and Niklas Astedt both banked $10,005; Astedt’s exit set the final table.
Marius Gierse was the first finalist to dust off their stack. Recent PLO High Roller champion Eelis Parssinen followed Gierse to the sidelines. High roller guru Timothy Adams fell in fifth for $15,318 before Joakim Andersson and Jon Van Fleet busted and left Kolinkovskyi and Ole Schemion heads-up.
Schemion rarely loses once he’s one-on-one with an opponent but this was one of those rare times. Schemion had to make do with the $45,757 runner-up prize, leaving Kolinkovskyi to walk away the victor with $74,502 reasons to be delighted.
