Matthias Eibinger Binks the partypoker High Roller Big Game

Matthias Eibinger

Matthias Eibinger took down the partypoker High Roller Big Game and banked $63,216. Eibinger’s prize would have been a shade under $74,000 but he struck a heads-up deal with Finland’s Samuel Vousden.

Vousden’s runner-up finish weighed in at $57,568, $10,000 more than the advertised prize.

All but two of the nine finalists netted a five-figure prize, thanks in part to 116-players buying in for $2,600 each. Niklas Astedt and Steve O’Dwyer were the first two players to dust off their chips; they walked away with $8,117 and $9,789 respectively.

Christopher Putz and two-time WSOP bracelet winner Yuri Dzvielevski were the next pair out of the door before Shawn Daniels and the Netherlands’ Daan Mulders fell by the wayside, the latter reeling in a $22,943 haul.

Brazilian superstar Bruno Volkmann’s elimination in third netted him $32,447, leaving Vousden and Eibinger to strike a deal and conclude this week’s High Roller Big Game.

David Yan

David “MissOracle” Yan added the $1,050 Sunday Warm-Up to the long list of tournaments he’s won during his career. Yan topped a compact field of 65 in the $1,050 buy-in event at PokerStars and padded his bankroll with $15,032 after a heads-up deal with Finland’s Tomi “elmerixx” Brouk. Brouk banked $15,646 as part of that deal.

It shouldn’t be surprising that a $1,050 buy-in tournament had a final table brimming with stars. Some of those stars included seventh-place finisher Artur “mararthur1” Martirosian and the Austria-based German legend that is Ole “wizowizo” Schemion who crashed out in fifth for $5,511.

altavistt Shines in Sunday Challenge PKO

This week’s $30,000 Sunday Challenge PKO event final table saw a third of its seats taken up by players calling Belarus home. “bad_romantic” and “tinitun14” didn’t last long under the spotlight, falling in ninth and eighth-place for scores of $304 and $767 respectively.

Their exits left “altavistt” as the sole flier of the Belarusian flag. He did his country proud by emerging from the battle victoriously with the $3,299 top prize in tow. This sum was bolstered by $3,687 worth of bounty payments for a total prize weighing in at $6,986.

Canada’s Guillaume Nolet helped himself to a $141,384 score this weekend when he finished first from 979 entrants in the GGMasters High Rollers event at GGPoker.

Nolet is no stranger to major online poker tournaments’ final tables so it wasn’t a surprise to see him reach this final table. He eventually found himself in a one-on-one battle with Brazil’s “ODDj0b” for the title and a prize more than $35,000 more than second-place. Nolet defeated his Brazilian opponent to resign ODDj0b to a still massive $106,023 second-place prize.

Earlier at the final table, the likes of Michael Zhang and Jans Arends bit the dust. Zhang, showing as playing from Brazil, fell in fifth-place for a $44,709 score, while Arends crashed out in third for a $79,506 haul.
