While some professional poker players do not have a single GGPoker Super MILLION$ title, this is not the case for Niklas Astedt. The Swedish pro player won his first title last month, and earlier this week he took home a hefty $313,907 prize along with a second Super MILLION$ title.
Niklas Astedt Is the Winner of the 49th Episode of GGPoker Super MILLION$
Only two months ago, Niklas Astedt, a professional poker player from Sweden, did not have a single GGPoker Super MILLION$ title. However, with consistency, professional play, and dedication this has changed rather quickly. On April 13, the Swedish pro won his first Super MILLION$ title, which brought him the staggering prize of $1,095,741.
Now, things got even better for Astedt, who won his second Super MILLION$ title on Tuesday this week. The 49th episode of the tournament brought the Swedish player a hefty prize of $313,907. Besides the second title, Astedt’s winnings from Super MILLION$ received a nice boost, hitting a total of $3,354,273.
Out of a total of 46 attempts in Super MILLION$ tournaments, Astedt has collected money prizes for 21. Furthermore, from that total, he has reached the final tables a dozen times. Considering the significant number of appearances which the Swedish player had, the tournaments in which he participated have always been thrilling.
The Final Table Brought Plenty of Action
To win his second Super MILLION$ title, Astedt had to take out 8 other opponents. At the final table action, the first eliminated player was “judd trump” from China, who took 9th place, taking home $48,802. Shortly after, he was joined by Bruno Volkmann from Brazil who won 8th place and took home $61,587.

One step before the winner’s place, Greenwood got home with $248,746 reaching second place at the Super MILLION$ final table.
