Joao Oliveira Wins the MILLIONS Online #13 6-Max ($74,397)
It is rare that a tournament’s buy-ins will equal exactly the guarantee but the MILLIONS Online #13 6-Max did just that with 100 entrants contributing a $3,200 buy-in to generate $300,000 into the prize pool to match the guarantee.
The field was trimmed down to just 17 hopefuls after the first day of play, each guaranteed a $6,383 min-cash when Day 2 resumed.
It then took just slightly more than 3 1/2 hours for Joao Oliveira to ship the event on Day 2 for the $74,937 top prize after besting Carlos Henrique Ferreira Da Silva (second – $49,929) in heads-up play.
Adam Hendrix joined this duo on the podium and banked $34,855 for his third-place performance. Also at the final table were Julio Chia (fourth – $24,014), Elio Fox (fifth – $17,718), Kevin Rabichow (sixth – $13,956), and Georgios Zisimopoulos (seventh – $11,303).
Meanwhile, Brazil’s Brener Henrique Vicente won a mini-version of this event featuring a $320 buy-in and a $55,500 prize pool for the $11,714 top prize.

Madeira entered the second day in second place just behind the Day 1 chip leader Marius Gierse. Unlike Madeira, Gierse bowed out well short of the final table in 16th place for $5,195 ($2,008 prize + $3,188 in bounties).
