888poker Millions Superstorm: “yarik1903” Wins Sunday Special ($19,350)

888poker Millions Superstorm

The biggest online poker festival ever to take place in the long history of 888poker is more than a week through its schedule with the Millions Superstorm guaranteeing at more than $8 million across 480 tournaments from Sept. 10 to Oct. 11.

The highlight of the festival is the two-day $320 888Millions Superstorm Main Event boasting a huge $1 million guarantee. Opening flights have already begun for this event and there are plenty of chances every day for you to earn a ticket to this event for free.

Ukraine’s “yarik1903” was the star of the weekend after winning the 888Millions $215 Sunday Special for $19,350.

This is still shy of the biggest single cash of the festival thus far. This honor belongs to United Arab Emirates’ “nagidh”, who shipped the 888Millions High Roller for a cool $25,000 earlier last week.

“yarik1903” Wins 888Millions Sunday Special ($19,350)

It took just under nine hours for “yarik1903” to turn their $215 buy-in into a huge haul of almost $20,000. They battled through a field of 458 entries including 113 re-entries to win the biggest share of the $100,000 prize pool in the 888Millions $215 Sunday Special.

The win today was hardly the first online success for the Ukrainian grinder. The $19,350 from today’s win pushes their 888poker winnings over $250,000 and their total online earnings stand at over $2.5 million. The victory also bests their previous high score at 888poker, which was when he took fifth place in the XL Blizzard #16 – $250,000 High Roller in January of 2018 for $17,500.

Two players waving the Union Jack flag were also at the final table but failed to make the podium in Stewart “stew_23” Kilpatrick (fourth – $8,250) and Ben “xLIVEPROx” Warrington (ninth – $1,750).
