One of the biggest ever MTTs at 888poker, the $320 888Millions SuperStorm, attracted 2,897 entries over weeks of Day 1s.
That meant for a six-figure overlay on the $1 million guarantee (the whole series had some generous overlays) but the finale did end with a headline grabbing winner for the site.
German poker crusher and long time 888poker ambassador Dominik Nitsche took it down for a six-figure score.
Well that turned around rather quickly.
