Plenty of other partypoker players were on their way to becoming a WPT World Online Championship winner while Daniel Smyth was busy turning $33 into almost $430,000. The Mini and Micro editions of the Knockout Championship concluded, as did a High Roller and a pair of WPT 8-Max Knockout events.

Hungary’s Daniel Koloszar walked away with more than $108,000 thanks to winning the WPT #05 Knockout Mini Championship. The Hungarian’s return on his $320 investment is most impressive.

Koloszar defeated Brazil’s Thomas Nelz heads-up to secure the $60,800 top prize, which was bolstered by $47,784 worth of bounty payments.

A handful of the game’s biggest names reached the final table but, sadly for them, couldn’t quite get the job done.

Faraz Jaka fell in ninth-place for a combined prize worth $7,226 while Marc-Andre Ladouceur saw his tournament end abruptly in seventh-place, a finish worth $16,134 when bounties were included.

Dutch star Jans Arends finished in fourth and saw his $320 investment swell to $32,629.

No doubt these aforementioned players will be fighting it out for the Mix-Max Championship top honours this weekend.

Other Big Winners

Ali Imsirovic made amends for not winning the WPT Knockout Championship by triumphing in the $5,200 High Roller. Imsirovic finished Day 1B of the Knockout Championship as the chip leader but ran out of steam in 14th place for a $27,015 prize.

Imsirovic got his hands on the $32,500 top prize in the $5,200 WPT High Roller. It was a compact field of 10 entries and our very own Kristen Bicknell finished in third to burst the bubble. Imsirovic bested Francois Billard heads-up to bank the top prize, leaving Billard to scoop up $17,500.

  • Julian Selinger – first-place in the $109 WPT Mini 8-Max Knockout for $10,986
  • Andrey Kotelnikov – first-place in the $530 WPT 8-max knockout for $25,759
