2016 November Niner Vojtech Ruzicka has won the 2017 partypoker MILLIONS £10,300 High Roller at the Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham.

The tournament ended up lasting a little longer than expected and third day was added to the schedule. Day 3 got underway with Vojtech Ruzicka leading the final four players.

Shortly after the action resumed on Day 3, £1,000 DTD Live Satellite winner Chris Backhouse was the first player eliminated after losing his last chips with queen-jack offsuit against Bartlomiej Machon's king-three suited. Backhouse received £110,000 for his troubles. The second casualty of the final table was instead UK pro Tom Hall, who took 3rd place for £142,000 after losing with ace-deuce offsuit against Vojtech Ruzicka's pocket sevens.

The heads-up play between Ruzicka and Machon went back and forth for a while until the two players struck a deal, that left £50,000 and the trophy in the middle to play for.

In the final hand of the tournament, Machon shoved all-in preflop with ace-seven for around 10 big blinds and Ruzicka called with king-four. Ruzicka was able to pair his king on the flop and took down the title and £284,210, while Machon received £220,790 for runner-up finish.

Ruzicka has now over $3,2 million in total live tournament earnings and he is second on the Czech Republic all-time money list behind 2011 WSOP Main Event runner-up Martin Staszko.
