Team partypoker’s Kristen Bicknell triumphed in the 7-Max High Roller last week for $79,275. On August 16, Bicknell was again triumphant after taking down the $1,050 WPT Knockout Turbo, a result that netted the popular Canadian $33,210.
WPT Knockout Turbo: $150K Gtd Final Table Results
|2||Patrick Leonard||United Kingdom||$13,820||$8,343|
|6||Thomas Boivin||United Kingdom||$3,534||$1,437|
Bicknell was one of 148 players who fought it out for a slice of the $150,000 prize pool. Half that princely sum went into the main prize pool, which the top 21 finishers shared, and the remaining 50% going on each entrant’s head.
Triple Crown chasing Ognyan Dimov was the bubble boy. He didn’t go home empty-handed, however, because he picked up $562 worth of bounties.
Team partypoker’s Jeff Gross and Jaime Staples were the first players to bust inside the money places. The likes of Anton Wigg, 6-Max Championship runner-up Artsiom Prostak, Scott Margereson, Preben Stokkan and Phil Mighall all finished with a nice return on their $1,050 investment.
Bicknell eventually found herself heads-up against teammate Patrick Leonard. Both players were guaranteed more than $13,800 from the main prize pool but there were huge bounties in play too. Leonard fell in second-place and added $8,343 to his $13,820 score. This left Bicknell to win the $13,835 top prize plus an additional $19,375 from the bounty prize pool.
Greenwood Bags Two High Roller Titles
Sam Greenwood is no stranger to major final tables, he seems to reach them with an almost unnatural ability. Greenwood secured the top prize in a pair of high roller events and walked away with a combined $150,513.
Victory number one came in the $10,300 WPT High Roller, a tournament that saw 25 of the world’s best players take to the partypoker felt.
Only four players cashed in this event and Chris Hunichen was the last player to go home empty-handed. Fedor Holz finished in fourth for $25,000 with Christoph Vogelsang collecting $43,750 for this third-place eixt.
This left Greenwood and Timothy Adams as the last players standing. The pair struck a deal that resulted in Adams finishing second and banking $88,586 and Greenwood claiming the title and $92,663.
Greenwood’s second victory came in the $5,200 WPT High Roller Turbo. Some 26 players bought in and battled it out for a share of the $130,000 prize pool. Artur Martirosian finished in fourth and won $13,000 before Alex Foxen busted in third for $22,750.
Aleksandr Shevelev and Greenwood locked horns heads-up and Greenwood marched onto victory. This latest win was worth $57,850 for Greenwood which left Shevelev to pad his bankroll with $36,400.
Haxton Wins Super High Roller!
Isaac Haxton was another of our player who won big and by big we actually mean huge! Haxton finished first from 21 entrants in the $25,500 WPT Super High Roller and got his hands on a cool $215,135.
Haxton’s prize would have been even larger but he struck a heads-up deal with Dan Smith, one that left Smith to collect $204,864.
Only one other player saw a return on their substantial investment and that was Christoph Vogelsang who scooped $105,000 after falling in third-place.
Matthew Staples Nets $23,000
Matthew Staples came close to becoming a WPTWOC champion in the $1,050 WPT Knockout Warm Up. Staples came unstuck in fourth-place and won $19,436 from the main prize pool and an additional $4,632 worth of bounties, for a combined prize worth $24,068.
Boris Kolev was the last player standing. His first-place prize weighed in at $41,160 and this was boosted by a cool $47,890 worth of bounty payments!
