Pascal LeFrancois Wins 2018 partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Barcelona Main Event for $2,108,000


1,175 entries battled it out for a share in the massive prize pool of  €11,397,500 created at the 2018 partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Grand Final Barcelona Main Event. It was finally 31-year-old Canadian Poker Pro Pascal LeFrancois who came out on top to take home the title as well as $2,108,000 for his 1st place finish.

The  €10,300 buy-in tournament saw a pretty tough final table line up that included Davidi Kitai who won the €26,000 high roller event at the Casino Barcelona for €700,000 less than a week ago, Dominik Nitsche and Stephen Chidwick, among others.

Chidwick too is having a fantastic year so far. He has 10 final tables with 2 victories and over $5.4 Million in tournament cashes in 2018 – an incredible feat by any standard. He moves to 1st place in the POY rankings with this latest 3rd place score of $1.2 Million. Chidwick finished 2nd place in the  €101,000 super high roller for $1,36 Million just 4 days ago.
