SHRB Online: Chidwick Wins $25K SHR, Greenwood Grabs Second Title

Stephen Chidwick made his presence felt in the Super High Roller Bowl Online Series.

The fields in the Super High Roller Bowl Online Series just got a little ‘tougher’.

One of the most feared nosebleed tournament opponents in the game, Stephen Chidwick made his SHRB $25K Super High Roller debut and promptly captured his first title and another six-figure score.

Chidwick, the recipient of the player-selected award for ’Toughest Opponent’ at the 2020 Global Poker Awards, had been noticeably absent from the daily slate of SHRB Online $25,000 Super High Roller events. But on Saturday, he finally logged on and with a single bullet took down the 43-entry field of Event #23 ($25,000 Super High Roller, 6-Max) for $430,000.01.

Chidwick’s latest victory is another in an extensive list of Poker Central branded titles. His extensive poker resume includes deep runs in all three of the Super High Roller Bowls that were held in 2018 (including Macau). Additionally, Chidwick was crowned the inaugural champion of the first U.S. Poker Open as well as taking the first overall championship of the first Australian Poker Open, which was held earlier this year.

Artur Martirosian made his way to his fifth final table, his third in the past three days. He finished as the runner-up in Event #23 for $275,140.87 pushing his SHRB Online series total earnings to over $1.2 million. Ireland’s Darrell Goh made his third final table of the series, pulling in $139,750 for third place.

In other action, Sam Greenwood joined Viktor Blom as the only other player to have scored multiple SHRB Online Series titles. Greenwood, essentially, went back-to-back with a victory in Event #24 ($10,300 High Roller, 6-Max) for an even $200,000. Yesterday, Greenwood was the day’s biggest winner after taking down Event #20 ($25,500 Super High Roller for $399,000, and now he has a two day total just one dollar short of $600K.

Dan Smith, who scored a win earlier in the week, finished as the runner-up which was good for $127,972.50. And Kristen Bicknell picked up a third-place finish for the second day in a row, earning another $65,000.

After a pair of near-misses earlier in the series Alexandros Kolonias finally took home a SHRB title after he bested the 77-entry field of Event #22 ($10,300 High Roller, Six Max) for $240,860.62. It’s also been a good week for Matthias Eibinger. Eibinger took down his first PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker title three days ago and his first SHRB title yesterday.

On Sunday, he finished as the runner-up in this event for $150,150. Portugal’s Joao Viera keeps getting close to a win. He finished in third place for $92,400 which was his fourth final table in the past four days. In those events, he’s finished in every position second through fifth for a grand total of $405,025.
