WPT #06 7-Max Championship Final Table Results
|2||Thomas Boivin||United Kingdom||$15,914||$73,372||$88,183|
The final day saw 72 partypoker players return to their seats, each guaranteed a payout from the main prize pool, plus any bounties they had picked up along the way. Stars including Niklas Astedt, Benjamin Chalot, Christian Jeppsson, Kahle Burns, Pascal Hartmann, Ole Schemion, and Andrey Pateychuk all fell before the seven-handed final table. Pateychuk was the player who bubbled the final table, finishing in eighth for a combined $20,753.
Former WPTWOC champion Andrey Kotelnikov was the final table’s first casualty, the Russian’s seventh-place exit coming with a $20,306 payout. Another Russian, the high-stakes guru that is Artur Martirosian, joined the list of busted players. Martirosian, who won $1.4 million in Cyprus a couple of days ago, collected $28,997 here.
Fifth place and a $38,602 haul went to Austrian grinder Lars Kamphues before Jose Lopez saw his tournament come to an abrupt end in fourth, which saw his partypoker swell by $47,652.
Heads-up was set when 2021 POWERFEST Main Event champion Diego Cuellar fell by the wayside. The Peruvian grinder walked away with $55,497 reasons to be happy with his performance. Heads-up pitted Thomas Boivin against Eder Campana. Both players secured $73,372 from the main prize pool, but the bounties were massive at this stage so there was everything to play for.
The day belonged to Campana who defeated Boivin in the one-on-one battle, therefore securing an additional $96,585 for a total haul weighing in at $169,957. Boivin’s total prize came in at a still mightily impressive $88,183.
Aleksandr Shepel Crowned Mini 7-Max Championship Champion
Aleksandr Shepel is the Mini 7-Max Championship winner after the Russia came out on top of a 1,864-strong field to bank the title and $42,715 in prize money.
Winning a tournament of this magnitude is an incredible achievement in its own right, but more so when you consider some of the elite grinders who locked horns at the partypoker tables on Day 2.
The tournament was all about Shepel in the end, with him defeating his fellow Russian, Leonid Orman, heads-up to claim the title of champion.
Super50, Super5, and Micro 7-Max Crown Their Champions
The 7-Max and Mini 7-Max Championships were not the only WPTWOC events to crown their champions on August 30 because the Micro 7-Max, Super50, and Super5 concluded too.
Brazilian Claudio Alves De Oliveira triumphed in the Micro 7-max event and turned his $22 investment into a cool $10,112.
Ovidiu Gigel Rosca took down the $55 buy-in Super50 event, a tournament that attracted 7,246 players over numerous flights. Rosca was the last man standing, meaning they managed to turn $55 into a massive payout of $48,997.
Finally, we doff our caps to the German duo who struck a deal in the $5.50 Super5 event. The deal between Nikolay Moisyuk and Leopold Ferdinand Dornberger left $500 more for the champion, and the latter locked in that extra money for a total prize of $6,382.
