The King's Casino in Rozvadov hosted the 2018 partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Germany. As expected the German-heavy field included several of the premier high ballers in the galaxy. While many North Americans were slugging it out in Vegas at the U.S. Poker Open, the top players in Europe gathered to determine Super High Roller supremacy. This special series included three super high rollers with a pair of €25K SHR and a €50K SHR.

Finland's OG superstar Patrik Antonius won the first €25K SHR, German pro Johannes Becker binked the second €25K, and Chi Zhang took down the €50K SHR.

Only 8 players survived the cut on the first day of the €50,000 buy-in Super High Roller. The biggest event on the docket attracted an initial 36 runners. A couple of early bustouts fired an additional 11 bullets for a total of 47 entries. Only the top 6 places paid out in the 50K with €800,000 set aside for the champion.

Mustapha Kanit bagged up the most chips at the end of the first day with almost 11.5M. Canada's Tim Adams was not far behind with 10.5M.

Patrik Antonius bubbled the money when he busted in seventh place. Golden Boy was the Bubble Boy and he walked away with nadda. The final table included Chi Zang, Mustapha Kanit, Tim Adams, Tobias Ziegler, Felipe Ramos, and Dietrich Fast. Fast was the first player to exit the final table and Fast earned a min-cash worth €130K.

Tim Adams was dunzo in third place, which set up a heavyweight bout between Chi Zhang and Mustapha Kanit. The loser would only win €500K while the winner would earn bragging rights and €800K. Zhang held nearly a 2-1 edge over Kanit when heads-up commenced.

Kanit could not mount a comeback and he had to settle on second place. Hey, a half-mil is nothing to sneeze at! Zhang survived a tough-as-balls final tables to win the trophy and €800K in cash.

Meanwhile, Patrick Antonius shipped the first €25K High Roller at the 2018 partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Germany. The old school baller showed the current generation of Germans what it was like when the Scandis dominated the high balla scene. Antonius was kickin' it like it was 2006-07 all over again.

The first SHR attracted 51 total entries with 37 original runners and 14 re-entries. The prize pool topped €1.2M and only the top 7 places paid out.

The German-heavy final table also included American Steve O'Dwyer, Brazil's Joao Simao and Finland's Patrik Antonius.

Nitsche was dunzo in seventh place. Fast busted in sixth place. Schillhabel was picked off in fourth place and Nowak's run ended in third place. Steve O'Dwyer got his mangoes eaten in fifth place.

The second €25K attracted 32 original runners who fired an additional 13 bullets to bring the total entries to 45. Only the top 6 places paid out. Christoph Vogelsang bubbled the second 25K SHR. The German pro busted in seventh place when his pocket nines were no good against fellow German Johannes Becker's King-eight.

Manig Loeser busted first at the final table followed by Pat Leonard. Brazil's Joao Simao final tabled another SHR, but he bowed out in fourth place. The final three players worked out a deal. They did a blind flip to determine the winner! Stefan Schillhabel led with Carte As de trèfleCarte Valet de cœur, followed by Johannes Becker's Carte Roi de trèfleCarte 2 de trèfle, and Niall Farrell's Carte Dame de cœurCarte 5 de carreau.

Schillhabel woke up with a monster all things considered. Alas, Johannes Becker hit the flop with top pair and that's all she wrote! King-rag prevailed once again! Becker won the trophy, bragging rights, and €320,050 in cash. For a "runner-up" finish, Schillhabel banked nearly €268K. And Niall Farrel took home €226K for third.
