The WPT Online Series continued at partypoker on May 13 and saw another handful of champions crowned. It also saw dozens of partypoker players pad their bankrolls with impressive scores, including a brace of Hungarian pros in the $5,200 buy-in High Roller.
WPT #27 – High Roller: $1M Gtd [2-Day Event]
Some 202 players parted company with $5,200 in the latest High Roller, which ensured the $1 million guarantee was surpassed. Thirty-two places were paid and two members of Team partypoker made it into the money places.
Ludovic Geilich fell in 20th for $12,625 with Kristen Bicknell busting in 11th for $17,978.
Some of the other stars who cashed included Patrik Antonius, Ole Schemion, Mike Watson, and Manig Loeser.
Jans Arends was the final table’s first casualty. He was joined on the sidelines by Rob Lipkin, Alexander Ivarsson and superstar Nick Petrangelo.
Vicent Ramon crashed out in fourth-place for $78,780, the last score not to weigh in at six figures. Russian pro Artur Martirosian fell in third for $106,555 leaving Hungarian duo Bujtas Laszlo and Norbert Szecsi to lock horns heads-up.
The pair struck a deal that saw Laszlo bank $160,762 with Szecsi collecting $194,656 and the title of champion.
