Everyone thought Viktor Blom would win the Super High Roller Bowl Online Series Leaderboard and gain a free $102,000 seat to the final event. And why wouldn’t you? The Swede won three events and cashed in four others. A late surge by Artur Martirosian of Russia resulted in him being pipped at the post and it is Martirosian who is the overall winner.
Martirosian locked up the first of his eight cashes in Event #8: $25,500 No Limit Hold’em. He finished third for $238,000 behind Blom and champion Dan Smith. Martirosian then finished second to Justin Bonomo in another $25,500 event and padded his bankroll with $405,000.
The Russian superstar triumphed in Event #16, a $10,300 tournament for $234,605, before cashing another five times.

An absolutely incredible set of results from Martirosian, results well worthy of becoming the overall champion.
“I am very happy, I spent lot of effort, time and emotions during this leaderboard race, but it all ended perfectly. Yes, I was not very lucky in heads-ups and every heads-up loss upset me, but everything was going great before that, so it would be ridiculous to complain. This is an excellent result, I plan to continue to play all these series and spend even more time working on a game outside the series.”
