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.

John Vousden: Birthdate: 1709: Birthplace: Goudhurst, Kent, England, United Kingdom: Death: Immediate Family: Son of John Vousden and Joane Vousden Husband of Elizabeth Vousden Father of Samuel Vousden. Managed by: Beverley Dawn Wills. Finland’s Samuel Vousden found himself heads-up against Germany’s Wiktor Malinowski. The difference between first and second-place was a massive $168,000 but the last remaining duo played the tournament out naturally. This meant Vousden collected $520,000 when he defeated Malinowski one-on.

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.

Keith Hoang Crowned Big Game Champion

This week’s $530 Big Game drew in a 462-strong crowd, ensuring the $200,000 guarantee was surpassed by $24,850.

The United Kingdom’s Keith Hoang was the last man standing after nine-hours 20-minutes of intense poker action. Hoang’s reward? $40,191. Hoang defeated Pedro Garagnani heads-up to claim the tournament’s top payout and to resign his Brazilian opponent to a $27,854 consolation prize.

Two other partypoker players won more than $12,000 for their final table appearances. Oleksandr Turych, who calls Ukraine home, walked away with $12,824 for his fourth-place exit. Michael Ender of Belgium won $19,322 after his untimely demise in third-place.

David Yan Triumphs in PokerStars $1,050 Sunday Warm-Up

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.

Piggysnipz Locks Up $48K Score

The $1,050 Sunday High Roller was another PokerStars tournament ended in a chop, this time the final three players were involved.

“bokkie87” was the main beneficiary of the deal as their third-place finish saw them collect a $48,337 score when the original payout was $35,559. “nilsef” of Germany crashed and burned in second-place, a finish worth $48,903 as part of the deal. “Piggysnipz” was now the only player with chips in front of them and the Canadian won $48,139, much less than the advertised top prize of $62,629 but still a juicy amount for a few hours work.

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.

The champion defeated “Wez1y” heads-up to get their hands on the title, resigning the second-place finisher to a still-respectable $4,658 consolation prize.

Guillaume Nolet Wins GGMasters High Rollers


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.

Some 76 players parted company with $2,625 to compete in the High Rollers Blade Closer this weekend and Isaac Haxton outlasted them all. Haxton added $44,541 to his already colossal lifetime winnings.

The final table was stacked beyond belief. Stephen Chidwick and Yuri Dzivielevski busted before Bert Stevens, Pascal Hartmann, and Sami Kelopuro fell by the wayside. Artur Martirosian and fellow Russian Arsenii Malinov exited to leave Haxton and Ami Barer heads-up.

We recently reintroduced freezeout tournaments to our Power Series schedule and approximately 95 percent of all our tournaments are now freezeouts, meaning once you bust from an event it is game over!

The new format didn’t bother Finnish star Samuel “JHelppi” Vousden as he marched on to victory in the $2,600 Sunday Super High Roller: $100K Gtd tournament on December 16th.

1Samuel “JHelppi” VousdenFinland$47,125
4Specter_LittUnited Kingdom$13,050
7george15mcdUnited Kingdom$6,887

A field of 58-entrants created a $145,000 prize pool that was shared among those reaching the eight-handed final table.

Netherlands’ “Iluvia71” was the first player to cash. Both Iluvia and “george15mcd” banked $6,887 for their $2,600 investment.

Sixth-place and $7,975 went to “Z0mbiegirl” of Russia and their elimination guaranteed a five-figure score for the surviving five players. Austria’s “madgenius87” was the first player to net five-figures, namely $10,150 for their fifth-place finish and they were joined on the rail by “Specter_Litt” and “addhuSK” who netted a cool $13,050 and $21,025.

This left Vousden and “j2805667” to lock horns heads-up for the title, the latter having finished fifth in the partypoker MILLIONS Online a couple of weeks ago for a colossal $818,813 score. It was Vousden who emerged victorious to claim the $47,125 top prize for himself, leaving j2805667 to pick up the $31,900 consolation prize.

Team partypoker’s Patrick Leonard Reaches Sunday High Roller Final Table

Team partypoker’s Patrick “Patrick_Leonard” Leonard navigated his way to the final table of the $100,000 guaranteed Sunday High Roller but couldn’t quite get the job done to bring home the gold medal.

Leonard busted in seventh-place in this tournament to lock up $4,040 for his $1,050 investment. Leonard was joined at the final table by two other players from the United Kingdom. The player known as “spinner2255” fell in sixth-place for $5,050 with “BelowAvgGreg” netting $12,625 by finishing in third-place, one place deeper than the Swedish elite grinder Simon “HellmuthTheGr8” Mattsson.

BelowAvgGreg’s exit left “uNORTH0doX” of Canada to take on Brazil’s “whresmymind” heads-up for the title. The final duo struck a deal that saw uNORTH0doX walk away with $20,712 and whresmymind $21,707.
