Maria Lampropoulos Wins partypoker Millions
Partypoker Millions, the largest-ever live tournament presented by the popular poker brand, has finished on April 23 at Dusk Till Dawn Casino Nottingham. The event featured a guaranteed prize pool of £6 million and a guaranteed first-place prize of £1 million.
And the first-place prize was scooped by Argentina’s Maria Lampropoulos. The female poker pro was crowned winner last night after beating out a field of more than 6,500 fellow players. Lampropoulos added the hefty payout to her previous live poker earnings of $351,422.
Partypoker Millions was a rather unique event in its structure. It was held in several phases, with those running from October 4, 2016 through April 4, 2017. Interested players were able to qualify for the event through different live tournaments as well as through online satellites. The final four days of partypoker Millions took place on April 20-23.
And the final day saw eight players at a final table, all determined to win as large a portion of the prize pool as possible. There were four players from the UK, one from Argentina, one from Poland, one from Trinidad and Tobago, and one from the US among the final eight. And aside from Lampropoulos, there was one more female player at the final table – UK’s Katie Swift.
As for Lampropoulos, she was really overwhelmed with her career’s biggest accomplishment. Here it is interesting to note that her boyfriend – poker pro Ivan Luca – was among her supporters on the rail last night. Last year, the poker-playing couple played heads-up in a Eureka €1,100 Main Event. Although partners in life, the two players contended fiercely against each other for the Eureka title and it was Luca who emerged victorious eventually.
