Kyle Menard outlasted a field of 291 entries to win the $3 million guaranteed HRW 02: $10,300 Super MILLION$ for $628,892 at GGPoker.

Menard began the final table with the chip lead. Although the lead was passed around to several of his opponents, he wound up with all of the chips at the end to not only win the title but also to break the seven-figure mark in tournament earnings at GGPoker with $1,012,507 and counting.

The past few days have been huge for Menard at GGPoker as in addition to winning the Super MILLION$, he also was on the podium on Sunday in another big event when he took third place in the Battle of Malta #6: $5,250 High Roller Championship for $235,088.

Menard faced some tough competition in the final table including the likes of Stephen Chidwick, Timothy Adams, Philippe D'Auteuil, Urmo "PidrPan" Velvelt, Daniel "iStayOn5" Colpoys, Eelis Parssinen, Fany "fab5" Auge, and Samuel "goldfish55" Hunter.

Menard almost made a big name for himself earlier this year when he just missed out on WSOP gold with a runner-up performance in the WSOP Event #81: $1,050 No Limit Hold'em Bounty for $128,417.

Unlike many of his opponents, this was Menard's first appearance in the Super MILLION$ and he made it count in a huge way.

Final Table Action

The final table lasted about 2 hours and 10 minutes from beginning to end. Menard began the action with the chip lead but D'Auteuil went on a big run to open the action to become the chip leader.

The three shortest stacks in Hunter, Velvet, and Chidwick were all elimianted in succession. Auge followed them to the rail shortly after to leave just five players remaining when the first break took place.

Shortly after the action resumed, Adams committed his stack with queen-jack and couldn't get there against Colpoys' big slick. Colpoys took over the chip lead from D'Auteuil as a result of the hand.

D'Auteuil then won a big pot against Colpoys to hold nearly half the chips in play, while leaving his three opponents tightly grouped together in chips.

Shortly after, Colpoys went from hero to zero and headed to the sidelines. He three-bet jammed with ace-queen and was unable to get there against Parssinen's cold four-bet jam with big slick.

The second and final break began shortly later and didn't last long after that.

D'Auteuil hit the rail after jamming over the top of Menard's bet with ten-nine suited on the {7-Spades}{9-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{8-Clubs} board after the turn. Menard snap-called with pocket eights and D'Auteuil was unable to get a save on the river.

Heads-Up Action

Menard entered heads-up play with a small lead against Parssinen. The action didn't last long as three hands later Menard was crowned the champion.

Menard bet all three streets including a jam on the river on a queen-high board after opening the action on the button with queen-jack. Parssinen called all the way with queen-seven and his weak kicker came into play to give Menard the victory with both players holding top pair.

Despite missing out on the win, Parssinen more than doubled the $378,547 in career tournament earnings at GGPoker with second place worth $472,222.

It was a good run for Philippe D'Auteuil, who held the chip lead the first half of the final table. He has most recently hit the rail in third place for $354,582.

The hand began with D'Auteuil opening from the button for 660,000 before he called a three-bet by Kyle Menard to 2.1 million from the small blind.

Both players checked after the {7-Spades}{9-Hearts}{a-Hearts} came on the flop. Menard led out for 1,140,000 after the {8-Clubs} came on the turn. D'Auteuil jammed for 3,867,000 and Menard called.

Menard turned over {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds} for a set but D'Auteuil still had some outs to a straight turning over {10-Spades}{9-Spades}.

The {7-Clubs} came on the river to give Menard a full house and he held a small advantage going into heads-up play against Eelis Parssinen.

Kyle Menard opened to 675,000 from the small blind before he called a jam by Eelis Parssinen in the big blind for his 3.6 million stack.

Menard turned over {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds} and was in good shape against his opponent's {a-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}.

The cowboys held as Parssinen was unable to connect with the {6-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{4-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} board and Menard doubled up his stack.
