WPT #11 Turbo Championship Final Table Results
*reflects a three-handed deal
Danchev was one of 433 entrants who helped blow the $1 million guarantee out of the water by $299,000. This massive prize pool was dished out among the top 63 finishers and there were plenty of recognisable names among those who cashed.
Team partypoker’s Richard Dubini (49th – $7,209), and Jeff Gross (43rd – $7,209) were joined at the payout desk by such luminaries as Ari Engel (51st – $6,559), Connor Drinan (48th – $7,209), David Peters (28th – $10,456), Mike Leah (15th – $12,556), Faraz Jaka (11th – $19,874), and Damian Salas (10th – $19,874).
Each of the seven players at the official final table guaranteed themselves $31,908. Oleg Vasylchenko won this sum before Patrik Buzhala and Asgrimur Karl busted and left only four players in contention for the title. Karl won his $3,200 ticket for free when he took down a $22 Mini Masters in July and waited all this time to use it. What a great decision that turned out to be because he’s now $56,014 richer!
Hungary’s Ferenc Deak won the $81,363 fourth-place prize. The last standing trio of players decided to discuss a deal to flatten the payouts. A deal was agreed, one that left $10,000 for the eventual champion.
Sweden’s Alfred Karlsson benefited from the deal the most because he crashed out in third-place and won $184,832. His demise left Danchev and Aleksei Boika heads-up for the title. Danchev got the job done and the extra $100,000, resulting in a total prize worth $188,316. Boika won $156,843 for approximately 8.5 hours work!

All but one of the seven finalists scooped a five-figure prize.
