MILLIONS Online 2021 has now officially come to an end and the last event was also the biggest one. Actually, this year partypoker organized their biggest buyin event ever. The MILLIONS ONLINE #26 Mega High Roller had a buyin of a massive $102,000 and a $3 million guarantee, which 35 entrants exceeded by $500,000.
The two-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner from Australia Michael Addamo, has emerged victorious from a tough field to win $1,310,715, after defeating Austrian Florian Loehnert heads-up.
Day 1 was used to solve the drama of the bubble, as the players played down to six finalists who were in the money. The rewards ranged from $225,785 from the sixth to $1,310,715 for the eventual winner. After the first phase of the tournament, Austrian Florian Löhnert had a massive chip lead over the field, with more half the chips in play, while Addamo sat in second place.

The first to be eliminated on the final table was the 2018 Card Player Player of the Year award winner Jake Schindler, when his QJs ran into the pocket jacks of Addamo in a battle of the blinds. The pocket pair held up and Schindler settled for $225,785 as the sixth-place finisher.

High-stakes tournament regular Mikita Badsiakouski was the next to hit the rail. He got it all-in with pocket tens against the Ts9c of Artur Martirosian, who had three-bet shoved from the small blind over the top of Badziakouski’s button raise. Martirosian hit a flush when four clubs came out on the board to send Badziakouski packing in fifth place ($269,500).
Despite securing that knockout, Martirosian was the next to be eliminated. He Ad9d into the AKs of Vogelsang. Both players paired their aces, but the king kicker of Vogelsang played in the end to earn him the pot. Martirosian cashed for $364,000 as the fourth-place finisher.
With that, Vogelsang took the chip lead heading into three-handed play. After a few changed in the lead, Vogelsang committed his stack on the turn with ace-four holding two pair and needed a miracle to get past the better two pair held by Addamo with ace-seven. No miracle came on the river and Vogelsang was eliminated in third place for $525,000.

Addamo took a small lead into heads-up play, but managed to close the deal quickly by turning a flush against the two pair of Loehnert in the first hand of their clash. Addamo moved all-in on a blank river and received a call from his opponent to lock up the title and the top prize of $1.3 million. Loehnert earned $805,000 as the runner-up.
It took Michael Addamo only one hand of heads up to become the #MILLIONSOnline Mega High Roller Champion and win $1,310,715!— partypoker (@partypoker) March 9, 2021
