Justin Ouimette is the MILLIONS Online Mini Main Event champion! The Canadian pro outlasted 1,126 opponents on his way to securing the largest prize of his career, a cool $184,507.
Ouimette has more than $3.7 million in online poker tournament winnings, yet none of his prizes weighed in at six-figures. That fact has changed with him triumphing in the MILLIONS Online Mini Main Event.
MILLIONS Online Mini Main Event Final Table Results
|3||Francois Pirault||United Kingdom||$87,283|
|7||Jamie O’Connor||United Kingdom||$23,758|
|9||Rui Da Silva||Croatia||$14,826|
The final table shuffled up and dealt at 19:05 GMT on February 17 with all nine players guaranteed almost $15,000 for their $1,100 investment.
That minimum prize increased when Rui Miguel Nougueria Da Silva crashed out in ninth-place. Eighth place and $18,816 went to Mexico—based grinder Sebastian Henao who finished was the chip leader at the end of both starting flights and remained in the top 10 throughout. He just ran out of steam at the end.
British pro Jamie O’Connor, fresh from winning the $530 Big Game for more than $40,000, helped himself to the $23,758 seventh-place prize. This impressive result boasts O’Connor’s lifetime winnings in the online arena to $4.15 million.
Canada’s Carlos Chadha-Villamarin dusted off his stack in sixth-place and banked $30,147, leaving the final table short-handed, and each player guaranteed to take home almost $40,000 for their efforts.
Smiljkovic and Molar Crash Out
The talented Daniel Smiljkovic was the next player eliminated. The Austria-based star had to make do with the $39,049 fifth-place prize before Hungary high stakes cash game guru Laszlo Molnar, who started the day as the chip leader, crashed and burned in fourth for a $57,011 payout.
Each of the three remaining players locked horns and butted heads knowing only one of them wouldn’t be ending their fight with a six-figure haul.
That player was Francois Pirault whose exit in third place resulted in $87,283 winging its way to his partypoker account.
The difference between first and second place was more than $57,000 but the heads-up duo decided against striking a deal and just played out the tournaments as it was intended. This meant Joaquim Coutinho got his hands on $127,033 when Ouitmette defeated him in the one-on-one clash, leaving the champion to pad his own bankroll with a monster-sized prize worth $184,507.
