Team partypoker’s Ludovic Gelich will wake up a happy man today thanks to becoming a Super High Roller Bowl Online champion on May 27. Geilich got his hands on almost $240,000 for his impressive victory, one of the largest scores of his career to date.
SHRB #12 – High Roller: $500K Gtd [6-Max, 2-Day Event]
Geilich took down the $10,300 buy-in SHRB #12 – High Roller: $500K Gtd [6-Max, 2-Day Event] and walked away with a cool $238,676 for his troubles. The Scotsman came out on top of a 69-strong field to become a SHRB champion.
His teammate Kristen Bicknell almost joined him at the final table but fell short when she crashed out in eighth place. Dutchman Luuk Gieles won a SHRB title a couple of days ago but had to make do with seventh place and the unwanted badge of final table bubble boy.
Former MILLIONS Online winner Jon Van Fleet was the first of the six finalists to bust. His sixth-place exit locked up $31,050. Giuseppe Iadisernia and Andrii Novak were the next two players to fall, Novak padding his bankroll with $62,100.
Seth Davies racked up another SHRB cash with a third-place finish worth $82,800. Davis’ exit left Geilich and Alexandros Kolonias to battle heads-up for the lion’s share of the prize pool. It was Geilich who emerged from that fight victorious, thus scooping $238,676 and leaving Kolonias to bank $155,250.

SHRB #11 – Super High Roller: $1M Gtd [6-Max, 2-Day Event]
Justin Bonomo has practically won everything in poker and now he has a SHRB Online title to his name. Bonomo has won almost $50 million from live poker tournaments and several more million online.
He now has a $622,634 score on his poker CV after winning the $25,500 buy-in SHRB #11 – Super High Roller: $1M Gtd [6-Max, 2-Day Event]. Bonomo defeated Russia’s Artur Martirosian heads-up for the title, leaving the Russian to collect $405,000.
Martirosian has been tearing up these high rollers and super high roller fields and we wouldn’t bet against him securing a SHRB title before the series is over.
The final table was full of stars, as you’d expect from a tournament of this magnitude.
Ali Imsirovic, a former Poker Masters purple jacket winner, finished in sixth-place with Wiktor Malinowski crashing out in fifth for $117,000, the first six-figure prize of the event.
Cyrpus’ Selahaddin Bedir busted in fourth for $162,000 before Austrian sensation Matthias Eibinger ran out of steam in third place and had to console himself with $216,000.
SHRB #10 – High Roller: $500K Gtd [6-Max, 2-Day Event]
United Kingdom-based Spaniard Vicent Bosca Ramon found himself in the winner’s circle after he came out on top of a crowd of 77 players to become the SHRB #10 – High Roller: $500K Gtd [6-Max, 2-Day Event] champion.
Bosca Ramon turned his $10,300 investment into $240,860, boosting his bankroll for the remaining SHRB event.
The victory was made sweeter by the fact he topped a final table that was extremely tough. Nick Petrangelo and Mike Watson fell by the wayside to leave only four players in the hunt for the victory. Wiktor Malinowski reached his second final table of the night but could only muster a fourth-place finish. This banked him $67,375.
The penultimate elimination was that of Luuk Gieles who secured a $92,400 payout. His exit left Bosca Ramon and Matthias Eibinger to fight it out one-on-one for the title. Bosca Ramon got the job done, walked away with $240,860 and resigned Eibinger to a $150,150 consolation prize.
