Joao Vieira There are very few tournaments that Joao Vieira has not managed to win during his long and illustrious poker career, but every poker player has a nemesis tournament, and the GGPoker Super MILLION$ is Vieira’s.
Vieira has played in 72 Super MILLION$ events since GGPoker launched the weekly $10,300 buy-in tournament.

His 7,688,464 (76.9 big blinds) stack makes him a likely candidate for another win. Benjamin Rolle Benjamin Rolle is in the hunt for his second Super MILLION$ victory, and starts his quest for glory armed with an arsenal of 6,092,536 chips (60.9 big blinds). Rolle triumphed in this tournament in February 2022 and walked away with $424,580. Victory today would see Rolle’s Super MILLION$ winnings exceed $2 million.
