This is starting to get ridiculous. For the third consecutive day, former #1-ranked Niklas Astedt navigated his way to a win in a GGPoker Spring Festival event. Those three wins have earned the Swedish superstar a combined $279,247.37. This time around Astedt outlasted 104 other entries in Event #25-H ($5,250 PLO-NL Bounty) to win $140,464.75. His win came at the expense of runner-up Dario Sammartino, who would have completed a two-win day of his own had he not run into the buzzsaw that is Astedt. Sammartino banked $48,929.06 for his performance and coming in third place gave 'yfii-bestcrypto' a $45,347.16 bankroll boost. Sammartino couldn't have been too disappointed, however. The Italian and 2019 World Series of Poker runner-up beat 87 other players on his way to victory in Event #23-H ($25,500 Super High Roller) for a $508,447.84 payday. After losing to a former #1 earlier, Sammartino beat out the current #1-ranked player, Yuri Dzivielevski, for the title. Dzivielevski earned $391,973.06. Russia's Anatoly Filatov took third for $302,180.28. 'MickeyMouse' turned Event #20-H ($1,050 High Rollers Main Event) into their own personal magic kingdom on Thursday, beating 548 other entries before chopping with Igor D'Ursel. 'MickeyMouse' ended up with the title and $84,261.53 while D'Ursel actually out-earned them by grabbing $84,886.93. Rui Bouquet took home $54,357.02 as the third place finisher. Tom Delaine beat Viktor Ustimov heads-up to grab the win in Event #22-H ($525 Forty Stack) for $55,801.16 while Ustimov had to settle for $43,018.55. 'DontTiltGG' finished one position below Ustimov and won $33,164.46. Andrii Novak put on a bounty hunting showcase on Thursday, outlasting the 153 other players in Event #24-H ($10,300 Thursday Thriller Bounty) to collect an impressive $352,068.09. Runner-up Sami Kelopuro earned nearly 1/3 of Novak's score, taking home $122,696.01 while Ami Barer came in third place but earned more than Kelopuro thanks to the bounties collected. Barer banked $138,023.78 which is more than $15,000 more than Kelopuro. 'LottoLarry' cashed in a winning ticket by topping the 295-entry field in Event #26-H ($1,050 Turbo) for $60,524.63. '888WTB02' came in second place for $45,386.97 while Class Segebrecht took third for #34,035.42.

After battling back from a short stack and climbing out of a nearly four-to-one heads-up chip deficit, renowned high-stakes tournament pro Benjamin ‘bencb’ Rolle bested the talent-packed final table of the 34th edition of the $10K GGPoker Super MILLION$ to walk away with this week’s $424,580 first-place prize. This week was Rolle’s 11th time playing the event and it marked his fourth cash and second final table. His previous final table appearance was back on August 9 when he finished in fifth place for $136,479. In total, the Raise Your Edge lead coach had previously earned $276,213, and his victory this week brought his Super MILLION$ total prize money to just over $700,000. At the start of the final table, Rolle was considered one of the long shots to win. He was starting the day eighth in chips (just 6% in play) and, along with Rolle himself, the final table featured some of poker’s brightest minds. Nick Petrangelo was highlighted as the chip leader and joining him at the top of the chip counts was online poker’s former #1-ranked Bert ‘girafganger7’ Stevens and UK high-stakes savant Michael Zhang. Like Rolle, Aliaksei Boika was enjoying his second trip to the final table of the Super MILLION$. In his first appearance Boika finished in ninth place and this time he was hoping for more. Unfortunately for Boika, he got involved in a big hand while holding [poker card="ac"][poker card="td"] against Bert Stevens who held [poker card="ah"][poker card="kd"] on a board that ran out [poker card="as"][poker card="kh"][poker card="3h"][poker card="5s"][poker card="tc"]. When Stevens shoved the river, Boika made the call which left his stack crippled. It was déjà vu for Boika as he was eliminated on the very next hand, in ninth place, for $53,073. With roughly 10 big blinds, Ukraine’s Andrii Novak put in a late position raise with [poker card="ad"][poker card="tc"] to which Nick Petrangelo, in the cutoff, three-bet with his [poker card="9c"][poker card="9h"]. When it folded back to Novak he shipped, Petrangelo quickly called and the pair watched as the board ran out [poker card="jd"][poker card="6c"][poker card="2d"][poker card="qh"][poker card="6s"]. Novak, who started the day sixth in chips, was out in eighth place and collected $68,826. The very next hand, ‘U LOSSER’ opened under the gun with [poker card="td"][poker card="th"] only to be three-bet by Stevens holding [poker card="js"][poker card="jc"]. After Michael Zhang folded [poker card="ad"][poker card="qc"] in the big blind, ‘U LOSSER’ committed the rest of his chips, putting their tournament at risk. The flop came [poker card="8h"][poker card="3h"][poker card="2s"] giving ‘U LOSSER’ a back door flush draw to hope for. The [poker card="ah"] turn made it interesting, but the [poker card="as"] completed the board sending ‘U LOSSER’ out in seventh for $89,257. With six left, Steven put in a raise with the [poker card="kd"][poker card="kh"]. Rolle then three-bet shipped his 15 big blind stack with [poker card="ks"][poker card="6s"]. It folded to the ‘WatWudHaraldSDo’ in the big blind who shipped his 35 big blind stack with [poker card="tc"][poker card="ts"]. Stevens, covering both players, made the call with his kings and the three watched a flop of [poker card="ac"][poker card="9c"][poker card="8c"] providing some flush outs to ‘WatWudHaraldSDo’ but keeping Stevens in the lead. With less than a 2% chance of pulling it out, Rolle was all but out the door. The turn was the [poker card="7d"] giving hope to both Rolle and ‘WatWudHaraldSDo’ who now both had open-ended straight draw outs. The river was the [poker card="5s"] bringing Rolle back from the brink with a straight but sending ‘WatWudHaraldSDo’ out the door in sixth place for $115,752. The final five grinded for over an hour until the next player was eliminated. Petrangelo opened in the cutoff with the [poker card="jc"][poker card="jh"] and, with just 15 big blinds left, Stevens three-bet shoved his [poker card="as"][poker card="9s"] from the small blind. Petrangelo made the call and the board ran out [poker card="qc"][poker card="tc"][poker card="4d"][poker card="6s"][poker card="9h"] giving the pot to Petrangelo’s pocket jacks. Stevens hit the rail in fifth place and added another $150,112 to his over $13.3 million in career online earnings. In his 32nd appearance in the GGPoker Super MILLION$, Lithuanian pro Laurynas Levinskas was guaranteed his best Super MILLION$ finish once play reached four-handed. From the cutoff, Levinskas shipped his final seven big blinds with [poker card="3s"][poker card="3h"]. Zhang came over the top holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="ts"]. The flop came [poker card="kd"][poker card="qd"][poker card="8s"] keeping Levinskas in front but providing some extra straight outs to Zhang. The turn was the [poker card="4h"] but it was the [poker card="ad"] river that ended Levinskas’ run this week. Levinskas finished in fourth place for $194,671 bringing his Super MILLION$ earnings up over $627,000. With just three left, Zhang held a two-to-one chip advantage on both Rolle and Petrangelo. Petrangelo made his move, looking to do something about that when he opened from the button holding [poker card="qd"][poker card="jd"]. Zhang, from the big blind, made the call with his [poker card="ks"][poker card="tc"]. Zhang hit top pair on the [poker card="kc"][poker card="7s"][poker card="3c"] flop and checked it over to Petrangelo who put in a bet. Zhang called and the [poker card="9d"] peeled off on the turn. Zhang checked again, Petrangelo fired big again. Zhang made the call. Zhang checked for the third time, and with just 13 big blinds left Petrangelo emptied the chip and fired the third barrel, leaving himself less than one big blind behind. Zhang went into his timebank but ultimately found a call taking the hand down with top pair. Petrangelo was left with next-to-nothing but managed to double up over the next few hands. Ultimately, he went broke four hands later when his [poker card="qd"][poker card="5d"] fell to Zhang’s [poker card="ad"][poker card="2h"]. Petrangelo finished in third place for $252,457. With a nearly four-to-one and momentum on his side, it looked like Zhang was about to pull out his first victory in just his third-ever GGPoker Super MILLION$ appearance. But Rolle steadily chipped up, found a double, evened the stacks, and eventually took the lead. Rolle kept the pressure on and while Zhang made some moves of his own, the cards continued to fall Rolle’s way. All the chips made it into the middle when Rolle called on the button with the [poker card="ac"][poker card="6c"] and Zhang moved all-in for roughly 15 big blinds with the [poker card="qd"][poker card="th"]. Rolle called and the [poker card="ad"][poker card="kd"][poker card="8s"] flop put him in the lead right away. Zhang picked up gutshot straight outs along with his backdoor flush possibilities. The [poker card="qc"] killed his flush outs but added two pair possibilities. It was not to be though as the [poker card="kc"] completed the board sending the accomplished Zhang out in second place for $327,396. Super MILLION$ Final Table Results (2/2) 1.

Three more high-stakes Super High Roller Bowl Online Series events wrapped up on Friday with Spain’s All-Time Money List leader, Adrian Mateos, adding to his outstanding poker resume with a SHRB Online title and another six-figure score. In the largest tournament of the day, Adrian Mateos outlasted the 61-entry field of Event #17 ($25,500 Super High Roller, 6-Max) to claim the $527,509.70 first-place prize. It was the second final table of the series for Mateos who also managed to make the money in Event #14 ($25,500 Super High Roller, 8-Max) where he finished in fifth place for an even $100,000. Mateos’ Friday score is the third largest of the series thus far falling in behind Justin Bonomo’s $622,634 win in Event #11 and Daniel Dvoress’ haul of $613,986.70 earlier in the week. For those keeping track of the $25K Super High Roller paydays, Mateos’ just barely beat out Dan Smith’s $527,000 victory in Event #8, despite the fact that there was $175,000 less in the prize pool. Seth Davies made a final table for the second time in three days, finishing as the runner-up in Event #17 for $343,125. Finishing in third was Ukraine’s Andrii Novak who earned $183,000 for his efforts. With his win in Event #16 ($10,300 High Roller, 6-Max) for $234,604.50, Russia’s Artur Martirosian has now stood on every step of the podium during the SHRB Online Series. On Wednesday, he finished as the runner-up to Justin Bonomo in Event #11 ($25,000 Super High Roller) for $405,000. Tuesday, he scored a bronze medal finish in Event #8 ($25,000 Super High Roller) which was good for $153,000. It’s been a solid spring for ‘marathur1’ who, in addition to his SHRB Online success, also shipped a pair of PokerStars SCOOP titles earlier in the month of May. Samuel Vousden wrapped up in second place and scored the six-figure sum $146,250 and Christopher Hunichen found his third final table in the past two days with a third-place finish for $90,000. Linus Loeliger battled through the 76-entry field of Event #18 ($10,300 High Roller, 6-Max) to score the $237,732.56 first-place prize in his first final-table appearance of the series. Vicent Bosca Ramon nearly became the second player to capture two SHRB Online titles but was forced to settle for second place and $148,200. David Peters followed up his victory on Thursday with a third-place finish and $91,200. Now, the inaugural Super High Roller Bowl Online Series enters its final weekend. Just a handful of events are left before the $102,000 buy-in, $3 million Gtd Super High Roller Bowl Online Main Event which gets underway on Monday, June 1.
