The end of May is like a big crossroads for poker rooms: somewhere large series of high rollers are coming to an end, and somewhere festivals for micro stakes are just beginning. Read today at Pokeroff for an overview of Sunday’s biggest events, as well as the upcoming June series.
Malinowski and Volkmann are WPT Online High Roller Champions at partypoker
Victor “Limitless” Malinovsky (Wiktor Malinowski) was fortunate enough to take first place in the $ 25K one-day event, where he introduced two buy-ins, like many of his peers. Victor received $ 354K for the first place, and the least fortunate was Isaac Haxton, Sami Kelopuro and Samuel Woosden – these three also spent two “rounds”, but left with nothing.
In parallel with this event, there was a one-day $ 5200 High Roller Turbo with a $ 200K guarantee, which was closed to the delight of partypoker. Here the first place was taken by a famous regular from Brazil Bruno “great dant” Volkmann (Bruno Volkmann), recent winner of the tournament Super MILLION$, – in heads-up he was opposed Arthur “mararthur1” Martirosyan… For the first, the Brazilian received $ 86K, and the Russian $ 53K for the second.
The WPT Online series is almost over, with only a couple of days left to play. The $ 3M Guaranteed Main Event has already collected 915 entries – less than a hundred left to break the guarantee.
Today at 18:05 Moscow time the last game day of the $ 3200 Main Event Turbo will take place, and at 22:05 Day 2 starts, where at the time of publication the chip leader is a big fan to dance Stoyan Obreshkov.
Anatoly Filatov becomes a huge chip leader at the Super MILLION $ final table
The stack is 112.4 big blinds, the closest pursuers Sergey Denisov and Isaac Haxton have 50 big blinds each. The grand prize of $ 326K is at stake! The broadcast promises to be very interesting. The composition is cool.
Sven Andersson, Elio Fox and Bruno Volkmann make the Super MILLION $ final table for the second week in a row. All three of them are located at the bottom of the chip account, and this is the only reason why they have the least chances of winning. But Super MILLION $ viewers remember Elio Fox ripped to smithereens last week’s finals, starting with 8.5 bb.
Also, David Peters, Juan Pardo, Isaac Haxton and Sergey “CrazyLissy” Denisov entered the final table – all these guys are not a gift. And also a dark horse, a no-name, a certain UncleToni, will play with them.
$ 10,300 Super MILLION $ Final Table Chip Account:
- Anatoly Filatov – 112.4 bb
- Sergey Denisov – 53.3 bb
- Isaac Haxton – 51.1 bb
- Juan Pardo – 46.7 bb
- UncleToni – 41.8 bb
- David Peters – 21.9 bb
- Elio Fox – 17.1 bb
- Bruno Volkmann – 15.4 bb
- Sven Andersson – 12.7 bb
Anatoly Filatov shared in blog fun fact about participating in this tournament:
“Misrid made his hand in 10k and rolled KK in 4 outs lol.”
Another interesting fact: a week ago at the final catch-event WSOPC Anatoly said that he plays negative on SharkScope on GG. But he has a plan for how to fix it. How he looked into the water!
Nothing, this minus is corrected in one trip, as many MTT people dream. So I fix it on one trip, only it does not happen yet! I was already walking twice.
They will play out on Tuesday, the broadcast will begin at 21:05 Moscow time on YouTube channel GG.
