Timoshenko Wins Aussie Millions Super High Roller For $2 MillionYevgeniy Timoshenko was won the 2014 APPT Aussie Millions $100,000 super high roller, after besting a field of 47 players over two days on his way to capturing the title, and collecting the massive AU$2 million (US$1,791,248) first place prize.
Following his impressive win down under, the Ukrainian pro now boasts $6,781,462 in live tournament winnings to go with the $4,734,422 he has won online playing under the screen name ‘Jovial Gent’.
The $100,000 Challenge saw 29 rebuys to create a prize pool worth $6,704,641. Amongst the players then walking away empty-handed was Gus Hansen, Tobias Reinkemeier, Viktor Blom, Justin Bonomo, and Marvin Rettenmaier.
It would then take nine hours before the final table of eight got underway. Another three hours would subsequently pass before Yevgeniy Timoshenko (A-K) eliminated Martin Jacobson (A-7) in 8th ($350,000), who was later joined on the rail by David Steicke in 7th ($450,000), Daniel Negreanu in 6th ($550,000), Patrik Antonius in 5th ($700,000) and Doug “WGCRider” Polk in 4th ($860,000). Timoshenko (8-6) then eliminated a short-stacked Erik Seidel (J-8) in 3rd ($1,076,000) to go heads-up against  Mike “Timex” McDonald for the title.
As the heads-up battle commenced both players were fairly even in chips, but Timoshenko then pulled away to a 5-to-1 chip advantage when the defining hand was played. McDonald (10h-7h) and Timoshenko (Kd-Qs) were both all-in preflop and after the board ran out 6s-5c-2d-8d-3h, Mike McDonald    had to be satisfied with a runner-up finish worth $1,500,000, while Yevgeniy Timoshenko was crowned the 2014 Aussie Millions $100,000 Super High Roller champion.
