Partypoker MILLIONS Online Final Table
Even though Andras Nemeth entered the final table with a nine-figure stack, his journey was short-lived, as he was the first one to leave the table.

After that, there were back-to-back knockouts. First, Igor Dunsel moved all-in during preflop with A J and was called by Steven van Zadelhoff with A K. Dunsel was unable to get any action with his A J and was awarded $88,327 for his eight-place finish. On the very next hand, Orpen Kisacikoglu lost in a battle against Domingues, whose pair of threes turned out to be stronger. Orpen Kisacikoglu was awarded $111,313 for his seventh-place finish.

With just two players remaining, the tournament continued as a heads-up play between Ramiro Petrone and Juan Dominguez.
