Wednesday turned out to be a relatively quiet day on the GGPoker Spring Festival schedule with just three High level buy-in events playing down to a winner and not a single one of them cracked the six-digit earnings mark.

The biggest winner on the day was Dan ‘Apowers1968’ Colpoys who beat the 294-entry field in Event #53-H ($2,100 Bounty) to win $92,222.98. The final bounty Colpoys collected on his way to victory belonged to Chris Puetz who pocketed $57,851.80 as the runner-up. Third place went to ‘judd trump’. After winning a pair of GG Spring Festival events earlier this week, they had to settle for $38,345.99 for their Wednesday efforts.

Eelis Parssinen won Event #52-H ($1,050 PLO-NL) by beating 171 other entries. The win came with a $41,825.78 bankroll boost for Parssinen. Meanwhile, runner-up ‘FiestaPagana’ had to console themselves with $30,240.79 while third place gave a $21,864.70 payday.

Christian Rudolph has enjoyed plenty of success in the GGPoker Spring Festival to date. He won Event #27-H ($2,100 Bounty) and Event #27-M ($210 Bounty) and then finished second in Event #35-H ($10,300 PLO-NL High Roller). He was on his way to a third title before ‘Whattherules’ derailed those plans by taking down Event #55-H ($525 Bounty) leaving Rudolph to take second place yet again. ‘Whattherules’ earned $38,490.79 while Rudolph pocketed $22,517.50. Third place belonged to ‘Marco_damme’ with a $18,325.14 score.
