Another Day, Another GGPoker Spring Festival Win for Niklas Astedt

0
The GGPoker Spring Festival is quickly becoming yet another showcase for Niklas Astedt.

This is starting to get ridiculous. For the third consecutive day, former #1-ranked Niklas Astedt navigated his way to a win in a GGPoker Spring Festival event. Those three wins have earned the Swedish superstar a combined $279,247.37.

This time around Astedt outlasted 104 other entries in Event #25-H ($5,250 PLO-NL Bounty) to win $140,464.75. His win came at the expense of runner-up Dario Sammartino, who would have completed a two-win day of his own had he not run into the buzzsaw that is Astedt. Sammartino banked $48,929.06 for his performance and coming in third place gave ‘yfii-bestcrypto’ a $45,347.16 bankroll boost.

Sammartino couldn’t have been too disappointed, however. The Italian and 2019 World Series of Poker runner-up beat 87 other players on his way to victory in Event #23-H ($25,500 Super High Roller) for a $508,447.84 payday. After losing to a former #1 earlier, Sammartino beat out the current #1-ranked player, Yuri Dzivielevski, for the title. Dzivielevski earned $391,973.06. Russia’s Anatoly Filatov took third for $302,180.28.

MickeyMouse‘ turned Event #20-H ($1,050 High Rollers Main Event) into their own personal magic kingdom on Thursday, beating 548 other entries before chopping with Igor D’Ursel. ‘MickeyMouse’ ended up with the title and $84,261.53 while D’Ursel actually out-earned them by grabbing $84,886.93. Rui Bouquet took home $54,357.02 as the third place finisher.

Tom Delaine beat Viktor Ustimov heads-up to grab the win in Event #22-H ($525 Forty Stack) for $55,801.16 while Ustimov had to settle for $43,018.55. ‘DontTiltGG‘ finished one position below Ustimov and won $33,164.46.

Andrii Novak put on a bounty hunting showcase on Thursday, outlasting the 153 other players in Event #24-H ($10,300 Thursday Thriller Bounty) to collect an impressive $352,068.09. Runner-up Sami Kelopuro earned nearly 1/3 of Novak’s score, taking home $122,696.01 while Ami Barer came in third place but earned more than Kelopuro thanks to the bounties collected. Barer banked $138,023.78 which is more than $15,000 more than Kelopuro.

LottoLarry‘ cashed in a winning ticket by topping the 295-entry field in Event #26-H ($1,050 Turbo) for $60,524.63. ‘888WTB02‘ came in second place for $45,386.97 while Class Segebrecht took third for #34,035.42.
