On September 6, 2017, Nick Pietrangelo, a student at Rhodes College, posted a hateful piece of writing on '' entitled 'College Millennials are Freaking Out Over DACA and its Glorious' (link is below) The instructor, Nick Petrangelo, is a world class poker pro with nearly $23 million dollars in cashes throughout his career, both live and online. Therefore, this is a premium poker tournament course that is was made for very serious players looking to take their game to a world class level. Nick was a longtime resident of NE Mpls, founder and publisher of the North Easter Newspaper, and retired from the U.S. He served in the U.S. Army during WWII from 1943-1946.

The latest Super MILLION$ final table features nine players of the highest calibre and Tuesday night will see a new champion awarded the title and a top prize of $424,580.

It is American pro Nick Petrangelo who has the chip lead with 3,908,741 chips and the popular high stakes player and Upswing Poker coach – who ironically has constructed a whole tutorial about how to win tournaments – will be hopeful of closing it out. He’s the betting favourite going into the final, too, as you can see below.

With just under 80 big blinds, Petrangelo may have attracted more bettors, but the money was right behind Michael Zhang and while he’ll respect Petrangelo’s established poker history, he won’t be afraid of taking on the leader, sat behind 2,825,669 chips himself.

Sandwiched by those two huge names is Bert Stevens, who will go into play second in chips with 3.2 million chips, not too far behind Petrangelo’s stack. While Pentrangelo is hunting his first Super MILLION$ title, having a best finish of third in late December, Stevens has already won a Super MILLION$ title having bagged the title in September, and if he can make the final six players will kick his earnings on GGPoker well past $4.5 million.

Lithuanian player Laurynas Levinskas is next in the chipcounts and has made the final table in what is his 32nd appearance in the 34 Super MILLION$ events. Levinskas has only ever finished fifth so far, with his $151,000 score on that occasion beatable if he can come 4th or higher today.

With some terrific other players in contention, such as Ukrainian player Andrey Novak, Aliaksei Boika and Benjamin Rolle, the chip leaders won’t have it all their own way.

With a $424,580 top prize and just $53,072 on offer to the player who finishes in 9th place, competition is bound to be fierce at the felt, from the short-stacked ‘U LOSSER’ from India to Nick Petrangelo, who has the chip lead and the most backers on GGPoker.

Ireland’s “Xingyun888” is the player to catch when the first cards are pitched at 6:00 p.m. GMT on December 22. They return with 4,643,847 chips in what is there their first Super MILLION$ final table from 10 attempts.

The Irish grinder is guaranteed $57,502 regardless of where they finish tonight, which is their largest-ever GGPoker score.

Nick Petrangelo is one of the best no-limit hold’em tournament players ever yet this is, remarkably, his first Super MILLION$ final table appearance. Petrangelo has cashed five times in 18th attempts. The man originally from Massachusetts has almost $17.5 million in live tournament winnings and a similar amount from his online poker exploits. The fact the Upswing Poker content creator is armed with a big stack spells bad news for his opponents.

Aleksei Barkov of Russia is the man in third place with a 3,142,947 stack of chips in his arsenal. Barkov isn’t a regular in this event but his record is superb. The Russian has now played six Super MILLION$, cashed in four and reached the final table twice. His previous final table ended in a seventh-place finish worth $234,738. He needs a third place of better to surpass that score.

Julian Stuer is another player reaching his second Super MILLION$ final table. Stuer has played 26 of these $10,000 buy-in events and has won $159,858 from four cashes and a final table appearance. Turning his 2,360,431 stack into sixth place or better will mean Stuer is showing a lifetime profit in this high stakes tournament.

Another Russian, in the shape of Team partypoker pro Anatoly Filatov, is at this star-studded final table. Filatov currently finds himself eighth in Russia’s all-time money list thanks to $5.17 million in winnings. He has another $7.5 million from his efforts in the online poker realm. Filatov has a little work to do at this final table as his 1,605,261 chips equate to only 20 big blinds but he has a legitimate shot of glory this evening.

The United Kingdom’s Simon Higgins has cashed in this event for the second time and reached his first final table. Higgins’ previous best finish, from 13 attempts, was a 19th place finish back in July that weighed in at $25,001. Higgins has won more than $1.2 million at GGPoker, thanks in part to a victory in the Global MILLIONS that netted him $132,092.

Returning to the action with 1,177,888, or 17 big blinds, is Canada’s Daniel Dvoress. Both of Dvoress’ previous stints at Super MILLION$ final tables have ended in seventh-place finishes. Ironically, he sits down at this finale seventh in chips. The talented pro has more than $5.2 million in GGPoker winnings, $1,489,289 of that sum coming from him taking down the WSOP Millionaire Maker this summer. Write Dvoress off at your peril.

Sitting down eighth in ships with a shade over 12.5 big blinds is Austria’s Marius Gierse. He has almost $2.8 million in winnings at GGPoker alone thanks to victories in the $5,000 Blade Prime ($140,795), and two $10,000 Bryn High Rollers ($132,412 and $116,570). Gierse came close to winning a Super MILLION$ back in mid-September, but had to make do with the $467,388 second-place prize.

Ukraine’s Vlad Martynenko, formerly “VladTheSlaye”, is the players bringing up the rear at the restart. The Ukrainian’s 760,859 stack is good for 9.5 big blinds, meaning he has plenty of work ahead of him if he wants to get anywhere near his best result in this event. Martynenko finished second on November 15, Can he mount an epic comeback this time around? Don’t bet against him because he’s won three WSOPC side events since securing his place at this final table!
