Ship it to Greece! The latest big winner on the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS UK tour is Greece's Ioannis Angelou-Konstas. The Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham hosted a festival for the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS circuit. Earlier this week, Steve O'Dwyer won the £25K Super High Roller. The Main Event champ was supposed to win a cool million pounds.
Alas, the final two cut a deal and chopped up the remaining money. Even with the deal, Angelou-Konstas still almost shipped a million pounds. In US bucks, he shipped $1.2 million. That sounds super awesome, eh?
The Nottingham Main Event had a £5,300 buy-in. A total of 1,015 runners took a shot at the million.
The Main Event final table included Ioannis Angelou-Konstas, Alex Foxen, Antoine Labat, Tom Hall, Sam Grafton, Michael Wang, John Haigh, and Dara O'Kearney.
Ryan Riess (the 2013 WSOP Main Event Champ) bubbled off the final table in ninth place. Riess walked away with 50K.
Ireland's Dara O'Kearney was the first player to exit the final table. Sam Grafton went deep but his run ended in fifth place.
Antoine Labat had a fantastic show. The French pro finished in third place, which was worth £440,000. After Labat's elimination, a heads-up battle was set between Alex Foxen and Ioannis Angelou-Konstas.
The final two cut a deal (£720K for Foxen and £840K for Angelou-Konstas) and played out for the title and 100K in cash.
Ah, when the proverbial dust settled... Angelou-Konstas was the last one standing. Foxen was sent packing in second place.
Angelou-Konstas shipped the tournament and the mountain of cash, and the extra 100K for heads-up. In total, Angelou-Konstas won £940,000... or approximately $1.2 million.
Only the top 127 places paid out in the Nottingham Main Event.
Among the notables who cashed included... Kristen Bicknell, Dietrich Fast, Andy Black, Max Silver, Patrick Leonard, Moshin Charania, Sasa Lalos, Mitchell Johnson, Katie Swift, Paul Evans, Louis Salter, Maria Lampropulos, Vojtech Skalak, Tobias Ziegler, Tom Middleton, Ben Jones, Jon Gray, Paul Nunes, Scott Margereson, Joao Vieria, Maning Loeser, Andy Wool, Christopher Andler, Ivan Deyra, Porter Lambert, Jono Beck, Guillame Diaz, Niall Farrell, Waheed Ashraf, and Danny Wilson.
