We recently reintroduced freezeout tournaments to our Power Series schedule and approximately 95 percent of all our tournaments are now freezeouts, meaning once you bust from an event it is game over!
The new format didn’t bother Finnish star Samuel “JHelppi” Vousden as he marched on to victory in the $2,600 Sunday Super High Roller: $100K Gtd tournament on December 16th.
|1||Samuel “JHelppi” Vousden||Finland||$47,125|
A field of 58-entrants created a $145,000 prize pool that was shared among those reaching the eight-handed final table.
Netherlands’ “Iluvia71” was the first player to cash. Both Iluvia and “george15mcd” banked $6,887 for their $2,600 investment.
Sixth-place and $7,975 went to “Z0mbiegirl” of Russia and their elimination guaranteed a five-figure score for the surviving five players. Austria’s “madgenius87” was the first player to net five-figures, namely $10,150 for their fifth-place finish and they were joined on the rail by “Specter_Litt” and “addhuSK” who netted a cool $13,050 and $21,025.
This left Vousden and “j2805667” to lock horns heads-up for the title, the latter having finished fifth in the partypoker MILLIONS Online a couple of weeks ago for a colossal $818,813 score. It was Vousden who emerged victorious to claim the $47,125 top prize for himself, leaving j2805667 to pick up the $31,900 consolation prize.
Team partypoker’s Patrick Leonard Reaches Sunday High Roller Final Table
Team partypoker’s Patrick “Patrick_Leonard” Leonard navigated his way to the final table of the $100,000 guaranteed Sunday High Roller but couldn’t quite get the job done to bring home the gold medal.
Leonard busted in seventh-place in this tournament to lock up $4,040 for his $1,050 investment. Leonard was joined at the final table by two other players from the United Kingdom. The player known as “spinner2255” fell in sixth-place for $5,050 with “BelowAvgGreg” netting $12,625 by finishing in third-place, one place deeper than the Swedish elite grinder Simon “HellmuthTheGr8” Mattsson.
BelowAvgGreg’s exit left “uNORTH0doX” of Canada to take on Brazil’s “whresmymind” heads-up for the title. The final duo struck a deal that saw uNORTH0doX walk away with $20,712 and whresmymind $21,707.
|4||Simon “HellmuthTheGr8” Mattsson||Sweden||$8,837|
|7||Patrick “Patrick_Leonard” Leonard||United Kingdom||$4,040|
