They say that in life, only taxes and death are certain. You can add something else to that short list, Michael Addamo running deep in high roller tournaments.
Addamo took down the $5,200 WPT High Roller Turbo over the weekend and got his hands on the $87,459 top prize. The UK-based Australian outlasted 53 opponents on his way to glory, including Team partypoker’s Mikita Badziakouski, who finished fifth for $17,982.
Only nine players received a slice of the $270,000 prize pool. David Szep and David Peters were the first to cash; the latter’s exit set the seven-handed final table.
Artur Martirosian, Joakim Andersson, and Badziakouski busted in succession before Chris Brewer fell in fourth. The elimination of the talented Steve O’Dwyer in third, a finish worth $35,031, left Addamo heads-up against Alex Foxen.
Addamo proved too strong for Foxen, who proposed to Team partypoker’s Kristen Bicknell last week (she said yes!), and the Aussie secured yet another high roller title.

Brewer Bags $10K High Roller Title
Addamo went into the final day of the WPT #05 High Roller: $1M Gtd as the chip leader, but he could not quite finish the job. Seventeen of the 99 starters made it through to the second and final day, each locking up at least $21,277 for their efforts.
Artur Martirosian was the first player out of the door, closely followed by Rob Yong. The field thinned one player at a time until David Peters crashed out in eighth place and set the star-studded final table.
Sergi Reixach, Simon Mattsson, and Ramiro Petrone busted. Mike Watson dusted off his stack in fourth and was the last player not to reel in a six-figure haul; Watson won $80,047.
Addamo’s tournament ended in a third-place finish worth $116,183, which left Shawn Daniels and Chris Brewer to lock horns heads-up for the title and the quarter of a million dollars top prize.
Brewer defeated Daniels and banked $249,791, leaving Daniels to walk away with a $166,429 consolation prize.
