The 21-year old grinded his way from a $5 online satellites at Partypoker all the way into the Millions. As if this would not be enough he even made the final table and finished in 3rd place for 1.4 Million Dollar! What an insane ROI!!!
Some even say that “Scarmak3r could be the new Chris Moneymaker, we would take it 🙂
Pim de Goede and Manuel Ruivo chop for 2.3 Million each
The biggest names on the final two tables were Chris “Ad Finem” Kruk, Albert “Albert77” Daher, Pedro “Maddonaa” Marques and Pim “ForMatherRussia” de Goede.
While Daher and Kruk both busted before the final table Marques and de Goede both made it to the final four.
The latter was massive chipleader, Marques the shortstack and he couldn’t manage a comeback. Nevertheless, another strong showing from the talented Portuguese after his 5th place at EPT Barcelona 2018.
3-handed $5 Online Qualifier “Scarmak3r” was the massive shortstack and he busted soon after. What a fantastic performance and beautiful story by the 21-year old Slovenian, who qualified for $5 at Partypoker!
Before the start of the Heads-Up the two Dutch players Pim “ForMatherRussia” de Goede and chipleader Manuel “Sheparentao” Ruivo were almost equal.
We believe that they might know each other as they not only decided to make a deal, but also on an even chop without any cards dealt.
That’s why the Partypoker MILLIONS 2018 finshed with two winners, who both took home more than 2.3 Million Dollar!
