Sam Greenwood has won the 2017 partypoker Caribbean Poker Party $5,300 MILLIONS Main Event for $1,000,000.
Greenwood started the Caribbean Poker Party week with a third-place finish in the $10,300 High Roller and followed that up with a second place in the $25,500 Super High Roller. For most players that would be enough, but Greenwood decided he still wanted the cherry on top.
The Canadian poker pro started the final day with good chip lead, but dropped down to just few big blinds at one point on the final table. However, he managed to recoup and eventually faced Russian player Andrey Shatilov in the heads-up play.
According to the partypoker blog, the heads-up play ended up lasting for almost three hours and ended when Greenwood picked up pocket kings to seal the deal. This was one of the biggest tournament scores for Greenwood, who now has almost $7 million in total live tournament cashes.
– It was just crazy, I don't think I have ever run this good. I won so many all ins and I'm happy with how well I played. In the high rollers, it was more of a steady climb but in the main, I was all in so many times, Greenwood said after his win.
