Team partypoker pro Mikita Badziakouski outlasted a field of 58 in the $50,000 buy-in partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Super High Roller Series Sochi Event #4, taking home a whopping $765,000.

The Belarusian crusher is the latest player to snag a win at the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Super High Roller Series Sochi Event #4: $50,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em tournament.

A total of 45 players shelled out $50,000 each on this NLHE event, which generated a prize pool of $2,250,000. During the first day's action, the 45 players were whittled down to the final seven.

Australian Kahle Burns was the bubble boy of this event. Burns raised with ASpadeKClub, Badziakouski three-bet all-in with ADiamondAClub and Burns called. The board revealed QDiamond9Heart5Heart5DiamondQClub to send Burns home in 8th place and prompted the tournament into the money places. That hand also ensured Badziakouski to finish Day 1 as the tournament's chip leader.

On Day 2, the final heads-up match saw Badziakouski versus Russian player Artur Martirosyan. Badziakouski drew first blood before pressing on for a 5,300,000 to 1,455,000 chip advantage. Martirosyan managed to double but it was in vain.

In the final hand, Martirosyan limp-called on the button with QSpade6Spade. Badziakouski was sat with KHeart9Diamond in the hole. A 6Heart6Club7Heart flop looked dreamy for Martirosyan. It looked even better when Badziakouski led for 220,000. Martirosyan raised to 540,000 and the Belarusian crusher called.

The 10Heart turn prompted a check from the Team partypoker pro. Martirosyan moved all-in for 1,280,000, sending Badziakouski into the tank.

After pondering, Badziakouski said, "I'm a fish, I call" and made the call. He had 11 outs on the river to win the hand, any heart and any eight. It was the former, the 5Heart that won the hand for him, wrapping up the tournament in remarkable style.

What a final hand! I would be destroyed for the stress there! And what a decision! Shove your bankroll to a "Silver Bullet"...solitary and ended! But that must have been a short tournament, because there were only 45 players, so that playing was not a play out of tiredness, although stress can exhaust you. Anyway, with that cold spirit, is reasonable spend a $50.000 buy-in

This tournament was a really strong one if the 7th place won $ 112,500 and the winner 765k. Very good game but where are the big players who played 10 years ago at the tables? Nowadays we see rarely vip players of 2010 on the final tables. It is because many gamblers learned to play poker.

I don´t know CALICUL, $ 112.500 to the 7th place...but you have to pay $ 50.000 of buy-in and figth against 38 good players (I suposse that they have to be good to pay $ 50.000 buy-in)...I don´t know. Perhaps I´m used to hear about players who win one million with a buy-in too much little. And something happens here where no one knowed player was in the money!

maragatero where do you find this informations about this news and number of players?in both news you write wrong things and different number of players,but its clear that you had on both tournaments 58 players and that what you can see in first sentence!
it doesnt mean that first place need to be two times bigger if buy in is two times bigger!

People play at a high level my friend and always professional or rich players can support it easier a big buy-in like this. If i had $ 50,000 i would try to buy some arable land or another business but i wouldn't risk this money for a game. My level is low for them and i would be a easy victim for they.

But this guys should have a bankroll around $ 7.000.000. And, if they can waste $7M in poker or/and another games, you could think how much maybe their own capital! So, we lives in another universe CALICUL!! What a good theme is think in the possible (dreamed) investment of that buy-in. In my country you can buy a centric department of two bedrooms!
