Second partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Barcelona €25K SHR won by Davidi Kitai for €700,000

It looks like Davidi Kitai's luck has been super high thanks to his wife's baby bump, which inspired him to win the first prize of €700,000 ($862,772) in the second of the 2018 partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Grand Final €25,500 Super High Rollers in Casino Barcelona, Spain.

"Every time I was all in, I kept thinking about the baby and rubbed the belly," said the Belgian poker pro, who couldn't wipe the smile off his face after saying goodbye to 89 other opponents in the super-strong field which included Germany's Manig Loeser, Spain's Adrian Mateos, and a trio of high-roller Americans Ryan Riess, Jake Schindler and Justin Bonomo.

According to the Hendon Mob website, Kitai's recent win breaks the $9 million barrier ($9,021,326 in tournament cashes), and so he confirmed his status as Belgium's number 1, and now he is proud to have double the earnings of 2nd placer Pierre Neuville.

The three-time WSOP bracelet winner actually has more reasons to be happy other than winning the title and prize money at the tournament. It turns out that after he got married last summer, Kitai and his wife are now expecting a baby.

Another player who manages to win millions of dollars in poker. These guys have a laudable talent. If i would play poker another 20 years from now the chances of earning money would be more in live tournaments than in online poker but i do not think that i could win 2% of how much this player won. It is possible for me to be on - because of the growing number of players who become even better.

His wife is pregnant and that was an inspiration to win the tournament? Smile
I guess we have to smile from time to time by reading something.
Good win for his buy in. Inspired or not, he won a big tournament.

yeah kinda agree with mober here, pregnant wife the inspiration for the tournament- so what do now, start to stamp kids for every major tournament? well to be honest whatever works is a great idea, just sounds a bit odd maybe at first

The only thing a pregnant wife could inspire me is to make sure that I have an ironclad pre-nup - especially if I woul have nine millions in lifetime earnings like this fella. But at least they are happy...

Many congratulations to Davidi Kitai on winning this huge event and the very nice first prize of 700,000 euro. It looks like he was destined to win this event and well done again to him

I do not think the inspiration came because the wife of this player is pregnant. These are the words of this journalist who wrote this material. This journalist has been unsuccessful in choosing the right words. Since this player's awards exceeded 9 millions dollars and we can recognize his value.

Huge congratulations to Davidi Kitai for topping a field of 90 high rollers to take home the grand prize of €700,000. I am eagerly looking forward to watching the star-studded final table replays on YouTube/PokerTube.
