Manuel Ruivo wins 2018 partypoker MILLIONS Online

Portugal’s Manuel “Sheparentao” Ruivo, living in the Netherlands, is the 2018 partypoker MILLIONS Online champion, an accolade that came with a massive $2,329,943 first-place prize following a heads-up deal with Pim “ForMatherRussia” de Goede.

Twenty-nine players returned to the partypoker tables on 5 December, each guaranteed $65,505 for their efforts. With $2,729,376 awaiting the champion, nobody wanted to collect this smaller sum.

The waters were a little less infested with sharks when two Goliaths clashed on Table 18. Christopher “Ad_Finem” Kruk moved all-in for 237 million chips, and Chance “ChanceSeeYou” Kornuth called off his 138 million stack. Kornuth had top pair, Kruk revealed pocked aces and sent Kornuth to the rail in 22nd place.

Kruk would go on to bust in 11th place for $163,762 when his hand couldn’t get there against the pocket fours of “COL_Moutarde,” who flopped a set for good measure.

Once the eight-handed final table was set, De Goede held a massive 1,588,165,265 chips – yes, 1.5 billion – with COL_MOutarde being his nearest rival, in terms of chips, with a 626,714,202 stack. This put de Goede in a prime spot to bully his opponents, and bully he did, moving all in regularly and putting his foes to the test for their entire stacks.

Lithuania’s “orginALUS” was the first casualty of the final table. They called a shove from Pedro “Maddonaa” Marques to find themselves up against the inferior hand. The Lithuanian only stayed ahead until the flop, although they did have an open-ended straight draw. That draw failed to come in as the turn and river fell four of diamonds and two of diamonds.

De Goede then sent the start-of-day chip leader “wheatforsheep” to the rail and accumulated half of the chips in play as a result. Wheatforsheep jammed all in for around 12 big blinds from the small blind and de Goede snapped him off in the big blind. A final board reading sealed wheatforsheep’s fate.

Sixth place and a cool $655,050 went to COL_Moutarde after a clash with de Goede. The action folded to COL_Moutarde on the button, and he pushed all-in for 12 or so big blinds. De Goede called in the big blind, which improved to a straight on the turn.
