Dominik Nitsche certainly celebrated his birthday with a blast - taking home $121,000 as he won the 888poker Superstorm Main Event!

After a full month of poker festivities at 888poker, the Millions Superstorm $8M Series Edition has finally come to an end.

In a span of five weeks, 480 tournaments, and a guaranteed prize pool of $8 million, the series wrapped up over the weekend.

  • Duration: September 10 (Thursday) to October 11 (Sunday), 2020
  • Events: 480 tournaments
  • Highlight: $320 buy-in, $1M GTD Main Event
  • Guaranteed prize pool: $8,000,000

The highlight of this poker fest is the 2-day $320 Superstorm Main Event, which offered a juicy $1M guarantee.

A total of 3,196 entrants participated, but on Sunday's Day 2 of the Main Event, just 567 players returned to action.

After 7 hours and 35 minutes of poker action, it was 888poker ambassador Dominik "888Dominik" Nitsche who won the prestigious event. And guess what, it's his birthday to boot!

He fought fiercely even when he was down to just 7BB, and ended up winning the first-place prize worth $121,146!

He wasn't the only one who managed to bag a six-figure payout. The final four struck a deal at the final table. It made three players each secure an amount of $106,000 or more.

Final Table Action

Nitsche started at the final table as the second-shortest stack. Thanks to an early double, he made his way through the field as four players bowed out.

With five players left, Nitsche made his first knockout. His A-3 suited outdid the K-5 of "kiskutya23" all-in preflop.

After that, Nitsche was third in chips and the final four contenders agreed to their ICM deal. It left $20,000 on the table for the final winner.

With his A-10, Nitsche then dispatched "MrMarley83" who was outmaneuvered with A-2.

Three players remain, and Nitsche once again had A-10. But this time he found himself dominated by the A-K of "Artemka168". Nitsche fought back as a 10 appeared on the flop. That win catapulted him into a heads-up match with more than 2:1 chip lead over "GarbinaD".

In the final hand of the event, it was Level 39 (325,000/650,000/81,250) when "GarbinaD" shoved holding the KDiamond10Club. Nitsche called as he held AHeart9Diamond.

The flop showed QHeart9Heart9Club, which gave Nitsche trip nines; however the JDiamond gave "GarbinaD" a straight. Nitsche was looking to pair the board or hit his kicker to win it.

He did just that when the QDiamond spiked on the river.
