Let’s see who got their hands on titles and bankroll-boosting sums of money on Day 3 of the WPT Online Series.
WPT #06 – PLO High Roller: $500K Gtd
The $5,200 buy-in PLO High Roller attracted a crowd of 101 players including a handful of Team partypoker members. One of those, the one and only Sam Trickett, fell just shy of the final table, busting in seventh-place for $16,160.
Trickett’s demise meant the six finalists were guaranteed $20,957. This is the sum banked by Lebanon’s Mark Demirjian who busted in sixth. Finnish star Lauri Varonen was the next casualty, his fifth-place finish yielding $31,562.
Canada’s Matthew Wantman was the next to fall. He got his hands on $43,430. Rui Ferreira is no stranger to these big buy-in events and he put in another impressive performance which ended in a third-place finish for $60,600.
Heads-up saw Veselin Karakitukov and Ola Amundsgaard fight one-on-one for the title. Amundsgaard is widely regarded as one of the best PLO players of all-time, so it’s no surprise his Bulgarian opponent struck a deal with him.
That deal crowned Amundsgaard the champion, an accolade that came with $117,115, leaving Karakitukov to collect $110,891.
WPT #05 – Superstack: $500K Gtd
The biggest prize of Day 3 came in the $1,575 buy-in Superstack that saw $643,500 awarded across the top 56 finishers. $122,908 of that princely sum is now nestled in the partypoker account of Hungary’s Tamas Adamszki who came out on top of a 429-strong field.
This final table was super tough and any of the eight players seated at it would have made a worthy champion.
Bernard Larabi and Pedro Madeira were the first payers to lose their chips at the final table. They were joined by Shawn Buchanan and Frenchman Sylvain Loosli.
Joao Ferreira reached yet another final table. This one ended in a fourth-place finish that saw his bankroll swell by $42,471.
Samuel Vousden busted in third for $60,489, which left Kfir Ivgi of the United Kingdom and Adamszki to play for the title and the lion’s share of the prize pool. Ivgi fell at the final hurdle and got his hands on $88,159, leaving Adamszki to net the $22,908 top prize.
