Elio Fox has $565,500 reasons to be happy this morning thanks to him coming out on top of a star-studded field in the huge $25,500 Super High Roller event. It’s the Canada-based New Yorker’s largest-ever online cash!
WPT #32 – Super High Roller: $2M Gtd
There were 87 entries in the $25,500 Super High Roller, which meant a $2,175,000 prize pool was created. The top 13 finishers claimed a slice of this money so spare a thought for Ilya Anatski whose tournament ended in 14th place.
Anatski’s exit locked up at least $54,375 for the surviving players. The likes of Elias Talvitie, Dario Sammartino, Linus Loeliger and Sam Greenwood secured some prize money for their huge investment, the latter bursting the final table bubble.
Andrii Novak of Ukraine was the first player to bust from the final table. Eighth-place weighed in at $76,125. Novak gained some company on the sidelines by Chris Hunichen whose $87,000 prize was the last one not to be six-figures.
Timothy Adams loves these super high roller events, he laps them up. This one didn’t end in victory, however, Adams had to make do with the $108,750 sixth-place prize instead.
Ireland’s Mark Davis walked away with $152,250 after an impressive fifth-place finish before Samuel Vousden saw his tournament end in fourth, a finish worth $195,750. Heads-up was set when Vousden’s fellow Finn, Pauli Ayras, crashed out in third for a $282,750 prize.
Fox locked horns with Juan Pardo and he got the job done without the need to deal. Fox banked $565,500 for his victory, leaving Pardo to scoop $402,375.

WPT #31 – 8-Max: $500K Gtd
Russia’s Viktor Ustimov won his second WPT Online Series title when he triumphed in the $500K Gtd 8-Max event. Ustimov turned his $1,575 into a cool $127,520 to go with the $62,104 he won last Sunday after victory in the $1,050 Mix-Max Turbo Bounty.
Ustimov defeated Swedish sensation Jerry Odeen heads-up in this tournament to bank the top prize and another WPT title. Odeen consoled himself with an impressive runner-up finish that weighed in at $90,786.
Shout out to Samuel Vousden who helped himself to the $15,897 seventh-place prize on the same day he finished fourth in the Super High Roller for $195,750.

WPT #34 – 6-Max Hyper: $100K Gtd
Stuart Menzies overcame a tough final table to become the 6-Max Hyper champion. Kamel Mokhammad’s fifth-place exit was sandwiched between two talented Canadians in Francois Billard and Guillaume Nolet.
Third-place went to Hungarian grinder Bernard Larabi, a finish worth $12,507, which left Menzies and Swedish superstar Anton Wigg to battle it out one-on-one for the title.
Wigg is no stranger to heads-up battles but he fell at the final hurdle this time around. Second-place was worth $17,592 which left Menzies to pad his bankroll with $26,672.
