The latest Super MILLION$ final table is set and, as is usually the case, the nine seats are filled by some of the world’s best poker tournament players. The 29th Super MILLION$ of Season 2 drew in 270 entrants who created a $2,700,000 prize pool, and a first-place prize tipped the scales at $526,439.
No less than four former winners of this tournament have navigated their way to the final table this week, but all eyes are on former World Series of Poker Main Event finalists Sylvain Loosli who has not only cashed in a Super MILLION$ for the first time but goes into the business end of the event with the chip lead in his possession.

Loosli’s decision to buy into this week’s Super MILLION$ has turned out to be one of the best he has ever made because he now hold the chip lead with only nine players remaining. Loosli has 4,905,942 chips, the equivalent of 70.1 big blinds, and will take some stopping at the final table. The Andorra-based Frenchman has some impressive live scores to his name. not least a fourth-place finish in the 2013 WSOP Main Event that came with a career-best $2,792,533.
Russian star Artur Martirosian is one of the quartet of former champions at this week’s Super MILLION$ final table; he is in the hunt for what would be his third outright victory. Martirosian is the biggest tournament winning on GGPoker courtesy of helping himself to almost $22 million worth of prizes. Martirosian sits down with 4,089,830 chips or 58.4 big blinds.

Third place at the restart is where you find Estonia’s Markkos Ladev, who hopes to follow in the footsteps of Ottomar Ladva in becoming an Estonia Super MILLION$ champion. This is Ladev’s first in the money finish from five attempts and, therefore, his first appearance at a Super MILLION$ final table. Returning with 3,470,056 chips (49.6 big blinds) gives the Estonian a legitimate shot at the title. Finishing third or better more than doubles his total GGPoker winnings.

Both times Canada’s Timothy Nuter found himself at a Super MILLION$ final table during Season 1 he finished eighth. Now Nuter has another shot at glory and will fancy his chances with him returning holding a 3,349,290 stack, or 47.8 big blinds. Should Nuter manage to secure second place or the victory, his GGPoker winnings will push through the $4 million mark.
“Pandora-box” of Hong Kong last made their way to the final table on November 14 when they fell in fourth place. That result came with a $148,336 payout and helped them reach more than $1.1 million in winnings at GGPoker. Their stack of 3,346,204 chips (47.8 big blinds) is almost identical to the stack of the aforementioned Nuter, so things are tight in the middle of the pack. One mistake could prove costly for the players hunting down Loosli at the top.
Another player who you can not write off, despite finding themselves sixth in chips, is the Finnish superstar that is Samuel Vousden. The Finn has reached his fourth Super MILLION$ final table of the season. He has a sixth and seventh-place finish to his name, plus he finished second to Martirosian, too. Is this the day Vousden finally wins this huge online poker tournament? His 3,150,682 chips, 45 big blinds, suggest it may well be.
Fifteen big blinds below Vousden is Isaac Haxton, another star looking for his third Super MILLION$ title. Haxton enjoyed a victory during Season 1 and more recently on January 18 when he walked away with $448,842. Haxton sits down at this latest final table with a 2,102,538 stack, which is worth 30 big blinds. While he is most certainly not down and out, Haxton does have plenty of work ahead of him if he is to reel in title number three.

Lev “LevMeAlone” Gottlieb is a regular in GGPoker’s largest buy-in tournaments, so it is unsurprising to see him take a seat at this final table.

Gottlieb’s arsenal has 1,503,571 chips (21.5 big blinds) in it, expect him to make some moves from the word go.
Bringing up the rear is the final table’s fourth former Super MILLION$ champion, Daniel Dvoress. The Canadian only has 1,081,887 chips, 15.5 big blinds, at his disposal, but is only a single double-up away from being right back in contention.
