The partypoker MILLIONS South America event features massive $5,000,000 GTD Main Event alongside loads of other events including high roller options and much more.

$10,300 High Roller Final Table
At the final table of the $10,300 High Roller event, Farid Jattin had a rather nice chip stack, but at certain points, he was far from being the chip leader. Jattin held slightly over twelve million in chips which was significantly behind Rodrigo Seiji who as the chip leader held around twenty-four million chips. Nonetheless, Farid Jattin who is known for his rather aggressive game managed to earn a huge put as he decided to go head to head with another great player Mike Del Vecchio.
Following this head to head game with Vecchio, great Farid Jattis gradually boosted its pot which at the time included almost thirty million in chips. After winning a hand against Mike Del Vecchio with lucky aces, both Seiji and Jattin went back and forth eliminating their rivals until the two were the only remaining players at the final table. The exciting head-up game started and at the time, both players held over forty million in chips.
In the beginning, it seemed that this round will turn into a long-running game, it was actually rather short-lived to everyone’s surprise. Rodrigo Seiji managed to lose a massive pot and he rapidly went down to just three million in chips. Seiji just managed to double up two times before his poor stack was finally defeated by Farid Jattin via an Ace-Six top hand. The third-placed at the $10,300 High Roller event was Hilario Quijada followed by Roberto José Sagra, Marvin Rettenmaier, Marvin Rettenmaier, Jack Sinclair and Luis Gustavo. The first, second and third-placed players took home $200,000, $129,800, and $95,000 respectively.
