Three of the most respected high roller regulars each walked away with more than $400,000 in earnings on Thursday in the GGPoker Spring Festival action after they agreed to chopping up the biggest buy-in event on the schedule.

Stephen Chidwick, Daniel Dvoress, and Nick Petrangelo made their way through 93 other entries in Event #93 ($25,500 Super High Roller) before chopping up more than $1.3 million. Chidwick wound up with the title and $442,339.13 while Dvoress took second for $435,831.89, and Petrangelo grabbed third place for $433,757.56.

Artur Martirosian banked $326,273.34 for winning Event #92 ($10,300 Thursday Thriller Bounty). For the fifth time this series, Christian Rudolph played the role of runner-up, this time earning $197,210.79. Current #1-ranked Yuri Dzivielevski took third place for a $112,820.42 score.

Event #87 ($1,050 High Rollers Main Event) drew a 400-entry field with Lucas Reeves beating all of them to win the title and $77,228.57. Konstantin Maslak, who won a GGSF title on the opening day of the series, finished one spot behind Reeves and added $57,913.09 to his winnings. Shyngis Satubayev, who also won a GGSF title in the opening week, finished in third place and walked away with $43,428.68.

Rodrigo Selouan denied Joakim Andersson a second GGSF title by beating him heads up in Event #90 ($1,050 6-Max). Selouan scored $89,423.59 for the victory, while Andersson had to settle for $64,654.85. Third place finisher ‘Musashi94’ took home $46,746.72.

Austria’s Matthias Eibinger was the only other champion to secure a six-figure payday after he collected $126,793.41 worth of bounties from Event #91 ($5,250 PLO-NL Bounty). The last player to fall victim to Eibinger was Samuli Sipila, who earned $62,828.85 as the runner-up. Third place finisher Andrey Lyubovetskiy collected $45,466.17.

‘Joe Biden’ managed to do something that nobody has managed to pull off during GGPoker Spring Festival. They sent Niklas Astedt home in second place. ‘Joe Biden’ outlasted 224 other entries, including Astedt, to win Event #94 ($1,050 Deepstack Bounty Turbo) for $39,108.26. Meanwhile Astedt, who was 4-0 when reaching the heads up stage of the tournament, earned $25,726.32 as the second place finisher. ‘JESUSYAAZY’ took the final podium spot, earning $16,200.89 for finishing in third.
