Wiktor Malinowski is better known for his high stakes cash game prowess but it appears he definitely knows his way around a tournament table. Malinowski is the new WPT #42 Super High Roller champion, an accolade that came with $354,791 in prize money.

Thirty nine players bought in for $25,500 and only seven of those received a slice of the $1 million prize pool. Sam Greenwood was the eighth place finisher, his exit popped the money bubble and secured a $52,600 payout for the surviving seven players.

Mark Radoja and Christoph Vogelsang were the first duo to bust from inside the money places. Radoja collected $52,600 with Vogelsang walking away with $61,117.

Michael Chi Zhang saw his tournament end abruptly in fifth place for $72,950 before Juan Pado crashed out in fourth for a $98,530 addition to his bankroll.

Heads-up was set when Joakim Andersson fell by the wayside in third. Andresson banked $142,110, the tournament’s first six-figure haul. Malinowski and Joao Vieira battled one-on-one for the title and the huge top prize. No deal was struck, which resulted in Vieira netting $217,902 when he fell in second, leaving Malinowski to scoop a cool $354,791.

Miegel Mauls Warm Up Opposition

Jakob Miegel won almost $75,000 by taking down the $1,050 Warm Up event on May 30. Some 507 players started with high hopes, but only 74 managed to make it through to Day 2. All 74 sat down in the money.

$1,173 was the least anyone could win from the main prize pool, but the event was a PKO meaning there was plenty more money to be won from busting opponents.

Just look at fifth place finisher Ioannis Angelous Konstas who won $10,887 from the main prize pool but a cool $11,250 worth of bounties thanks to eliminating 16 foes before he busted. His prize, thanks to those bounties, was more than what Joel Nystedt reeled in for his fourth-place exit.

The largest bounties, of course, were reserved for the two players who reached the heads-up stage. Francois Pirault fell in second place and won $53,848, of which $18,296 stemmed from the bounty prize pool. Our champion, Miegel, enjoyed a $74,419 prize helped by $38,816 worth of bounty payments.
