Team partypoker’s own Isaac Haxton is widely regarded as one of the best poker players on the planet. On Sunday he added to that reputation by outlasting 45 other players in the partypoker High Roller Club Main Event.

The $25,500 buy-in event had many of the best poker players in the world vying for the eventual six-figure score. Haxton beat all of them to walk away with $437,000. Spaniard Sergi Reixach had to settle for a $287,500 payday after being the final player to fall to Haxton. Pascal Lefrancois picked up yet another six-figure score after winning $184,000 for coming in third place.

Many of the players that Haxton dispatched also took a shot in the partypoker High Roller Club Mix-Max Second Chance event. The $10,300 event had 65 total entries with Austria’s Thomas Muehloecker outlasting all of them to win $224,840.20. Belarussian Mikita Badziakouski finished as the runner-up for $146,250. Dan Shak, playing from Poland, took the final podium spot and added $78,000 to his bankroll.

Brazil’s Pablo Brito Silva won the $5,200 buy-in partypoker High Roller club The Big Game to earn $216,635.69. Canada’s Andrew Pantling just missed out on yet another victory, finishing second for $157,244.08. Nick Schulman rounded out the top three for $112,089.53.

Lester ‘mon$terDad’ Edoc earned $285,646 for an outright victory in the GGPoker High Roller MILLION$. The $500 buy-in event had 1,832 to entries for a prize pool of $1,129,800. Runner-up ‘Lucky_Luke1‘ walked away with $203,618 for their efforts and third-place finisher ‘supermoustache’ earned $145,146.

While the PokerStars Sunday Million and partypoker MILLION will both play down to a winner on Monday, the GGPoker GGMasters fell 118 players short of the $500,000 guarantee. ‘BadReligion‘ entered the land of competition and proved to be a worthy 21st century boy (or girl) by outlasting all 3,504 of their competitors to win $71,750.75. Coming in one spot short of the title gave ‘Langdon‘ a $50,352.45 score while ‘gambelo‘ earned $35,335.85 as the third place finisher.
