The final events of the inaugural World Poker Tour Online Series played out on partypoker this weekend including Sunday’s spotlight tournament, the $500K Gtd Weekender, and what turned into a star-studded final table of the $1,575 Bounty Hunter.

Brazil’s Rodrigo ‘selouan1991’ Selouan closed out the online festival with the largest score of the day by topping the 115-runner field of Event #55 ($1,050 Weekender, Final Day) to collect an online career-high $151,725 payday. Selouan, currently ranked #86 in the world, adds a WPT Online title to his other impressive accolades that include a partypoker POWERFEST victory, PokerStars Winter Series win, and a PocketFives Triple Crown which he picked up in November 2019. The six-figure score will send Selouan past the $3 million mark in lifetime online earnings.

PokerStars Caribbean Adventure 2013 champion Dimitar Danchev was forced to settle for second place in this event, but he still collected a healthy $107,950 to add to his bankroll. Viktor Zsemiye fell in third place and earned $72,505 for his efforts. The current #1-ranked player in the world, Conor Beresford ended up in fourth place and took home $49,130.

The final two players in the $109 Mini Weekender cut a deal that had Brazil’s Matheus Adrian declared the official winner taking home $47,203.48 for first. Tudor Purice from Austria took home nearly as much, locking up $46,381.12 as the runner-up. Joao Divino Domeles Neto was on the outside of the deal, falling in third place but still walking away with $25,077.75.

In the final event of the series, Event #56 ($530 Closer) Russia’s Sergei ‘Futti18’ Koliakov was the last player standing.

Fellow Russian Stoyan Obreshkov finished in second place and picked up $39,677.39 plus $12,127.22 in bounties. France’s Ivan Emanuely found his tournament end in third place for which he picked up a total score of $37,327.46.

Daniel Paul Haddon Pickles took home the title in Event #56 ($55 Mini Closer) earning $15,131.90 for first place plus another $7,096.71 in bounties.
