‘chrism189’ wins Fintan and Spraggy’s #PlatinumAdventure, heading to the Bahamas

Chris ‘chrism189’ Martin is your latest Platinum Pass winner, having outlasted 77 other players last night to win the Grand Finale of Fintan and Spraggy’s #PlatinumAdventure live on Twitch.

Martin, a friend of the stream, won his entry over the past few weeks in one of the weekly contests – as did every other player in the tournament. They all gathered last night to play down to a winner in a good old fashioned NLHE tournament.

When Martin found himself heads-up versus ‘pop a manu g’, he had a chip lead. However, this pot evened things up:

But as Spraggy tells us in this next clip, Martin grinded him back down to 100,000 in chips and all the money went in shortly after that:

For second place, ‘pop a manu g’ won a Sunday Million package that gives him buy-ins to the weekly tournament for the rest of the year. He reached out to Fintan on Twitter:

But the biggest congratulations has to be reserved for our winner, Chris Martin, who wins a $30,000 package to the Bahamas. Come January, he’ll be competing in the $25,000 buy-in PokerStars Players Championship.

Caio “caiohey” Hey wins Sunday Million for $165K

The Sunday Million is a long tournament, and often produces lengthy heads-up duels between the final two players.

Not last night though, as it took Brazil’s Caio ‘caiohey’ Hey just ten minutes to defeat his fellow Brazilian (Pseudo Fruto) heads-up for the title and $165,250.47. No deal was made.

The final table saw a tough line-up which also included third-place finisher Stephen “woody1234321” Woodhead. To read how it all went down, click here.

Micro Millions Main Event moves on to Day 2

The $22 Micro Millions Main Event kicked off last night with an incredible 63,817 entries (49,945 unique, 13,872 re-entries). After 34 levels of play, Day 1 came to an end with just 555 players remaining.

They’ll all return at 7pm WET today to play it out, all hoping to win the enormous $120,951 first-place prize. All of them are currently guaranteed $166.94 for their efforts.

Uzbekistan’s ‘fishara.uz1’ leads the pack with 4,649,293, and blinds will be 17.5K/35K (3.5K ante).
