  1. An action-packed final table saw Swedish player ‘WhatIfGod’ win the PokerStars 2021 EPT Online Main Event for a top prize of $363,641 as a back-to-back victory was sealed with a superb heads-up victory over the former PSPC champion and overnight chip leader Ramon Colillas. Coming into play third in chips behind both Colillas and German crusher Christian Rudolph, 'WhatIfGod' roared through the field to win the same title he claimed back in 2020 for a remarkable back-to-back victory. The final table action began with a big elimination right off the bat as one of the biggest names of the final table, who began the day with over 50 big blinds, found himself headed to the rail first. Current worldwide #1-ranked Pedro Garagnani has carved out a name for himself in a number of elite high roller events in 2021 and a summer victory in a WCOOP High Roller event saw the Brazilian bank $195,690. However, there wasn't another title to be had today as he crashed out first in the EPT Online Main Event when his five-bet shove with [poker card="Th"][poker card="Td"] was called by Christian Rudolph with [poker card="Kh"][poker card="Kc"]. The board of [poker card="As"][poker card="3d"][poker card="9h"][poker card="3h"][poker card="4c"] sent Garagnani out for $41,259 and in doing so, handed Rudolph a dream early pot, chipping him up to 29 million and giving him an early lead. Another big name fell when Orpen Kisacikoglu busted in eighth place for $53,763. Daniel Dvoress moved all-in from middle position with [poker card="Jd"][poker card="Td"] and Kisacikoglu called off his stack with [poker card="Ac"][poker card="8c"] in the small blind. He was ahead in the hand, but the flop of [poker card="Ts"][poker card="9d"][poker card="4h"] changed all that, giving the Canadian top pair. Kisacikoglu, a Turkish professional who typically plays from London, needed help. He didn’t get it on the [poker card="9h"] turn and when the [poker card="7c"] river fell, so did he. The early eliminations were coming thick and fast and PokerStars ambassador Benjamin Rolle was next to crash out, this time in seventh place for a result worth $70,645. Rolle three-bet all-in for around 21 big blinds pre-flop with [poker card="4c"][poker card="4h"] and he was called by the newest chip leader at the final table, ‘WhatIfGod’. The Swede held [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Qd"] and although the [poker card="Jd"][poker card="9s"][poker card="4d"] gave Rolle bottom set, it also gave 'WhatIfGod' a flush draw. That turned out not to be needed as the [poker card="Ks"] turn and [poker card="Tc"] river gave the Swede a Broadway straight to win the hand and eliminate the dangerous German player. With six players remaining, 'WhatIfGod' led with 34.8 million chips from overnight chip leader Ramon Colillas (26 million) and Rudolph (13.6 million). There were two Brazilians at the final table, but one had to go, and it was Bruno Volkmann who was busted in sixth place for $92,828. Volkmann was another victim of the chip leader as 'WhatIfGod' called the Brazilian’s shove pre-flop. Volkmann had [poker card="8s"][poker card="8d"] and needed to hold against [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Jd"] but couldn’t do so across the board of [poker card="Kc"][poker card="Js"][poker card="4h"][poker card="Kd"][poker card="7d"] as kings and jacks did for Volkmann’s chances of going any further. Eduardo Silva was the only Brazilian left, but he was out in fifth place just a couple of hands after players returned from a scheduled break. Silva defended his big blind with [poker card="Qc"][poker card="7c"] against the opening bet from Colillas with [poker card="Th"][poker card="Ts"] and on the flop of [poker card="Qd"][poker card="Tc"][poker card="3h"], Silva called a c-bet from the Spaniard. The turn of [poker card="6h"] saw Silva raise all-in when Colillas bet and the former PSPC champion, who won $5.1 million from a freeroll ticket back in 2019 called it off with ease. The meaningless river of [poker card="5s"] ended the hand in Colillas’ favor and he put himself right back into contention at the expense of Silva, who won the first six-figure cash of the event, taking home $121,977. Just five minutes later, Dvoress was on the rail, too. Opening from early position with a min-bet, Dvoress had [poker card="Ah"][poker card="9d"] and Rudolph called with [poker card="Jd"][poker card="Th"]. The flop of [poker card="As"][poker card="Kd"][poker card="9s"] flop gave Dvoress two-pair, and his min-bet was called quickly to a turn of [poker card="Qc"]. This time, Rudolph check-called a bigger bet of 1.3 million chips, having made a straight. The trap was set, and on the [poker card="4d"] river, Dvoress bet 2.8 million, almost all of his stack, calling off the final few chips when Rudolph raised and seeing the bad news as his flopped two pair was trumped by the German’s turned straight. That hand brought Rudolph back into contention on 20 million chips, but the German was still behind Colillas with 24 million and 'WhatIfGod' on 53 million. As he battled to shoot for parity, he put himself in increasing danger with the escalating blinds seeming to chase him every few orbits. Rudolph dropped to 16 million and when he limped in the small blind with [poker card="As"][poker card="7s"] and 'WhatIfGod' raised from the big with [poker card="Th"][poker card="Tc"], the former got it all-in and after a quick call, was at risk for his tournament life with five cards to come. The board of [poker card="Kd"][poker card="Qd"][poker card="6c"][poker card="2s"][poker card="2c"] did nothing to help Rudolph and he missed out, busting in third place for $210,608. Heads-up, Colillas was fighting a chip deficit of around 60 million to his 40 million but drifted down to a third of his stack as he held just 14 million chips. A vital double up saved his tournament life when he made a flush on the river with [poker card="Ad"][poker card="5s"] managing to four-flush and beat 'WhatIfGod’s [poker card="Kh"][poker card="Kd"] when all the money went in pre-flop. Just a few hands later, Colillas was even more fortunate, all-in and behind on the turn with bottom two-pair against his opponent’s top and bottom pair, but a two-outer seven on the river again save his tournament life, giving him a priceless double when all had seemed lost. Colillas took the lead and even had the chance to close out the victory, calling an all-in holding [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Qc"], but 'WhatIfGod' prevailed with [poker card="5d"][poker card="5c"] as he held to double-up to almost parity. The Swedish player pushed hard for the win and ground his opponent down over several hands that didn’t go to showdown. Colillas was down 3:1 when the final hand took place, as he went all the way to the river with [poker card="Ad"][poker card="8h"]. The flop of [poker card="8d"][poker card="7h"][poker card="6c"] put Colillas into the lead against WhatIfGod’s [poker card="Qd"][poker card="4d"], but the [poker card="Kd"] on the turn gave the Swede a flush draw and on the [poker card="7d"] river, that flush came in. Colillas bet out 5.2 million, then when 'WhatIfGod' shoved, made the call and saw his top pair and top kicker on the flop beaten by his opponent’s rivered flush. After a final table where the chips went with him, were taken away from him by a two-outer and the chance of a double title nearly went with it, 'WhatIfGod' battled hard and won back-to-back EPT Online Main Event titles in a thrilling climax to a great series. 2021 EPT Online Main Event Final Table Results: ‘WhatIfGod’ - $363,641 Ramon Colillas - $276,741 Christian Rudolph - $210,608 Daniel Dvoress - $160,279 Eduardo Silva - $121,977 Bruno Volkmann - $92,828 Benjamin Rolle - $70,645 Orpen Kisacikoglu - $53,763 Pedro Garagnani - $41,259
  2. Stop us if you’ve heard this one before. Niklas Astedt, the former worldwide #1-ranked pro and one of the most decorated online poker players in history, captured this week’s GGPoker Super MILLION$ title, the third of his career, and added the $337,599 first-place prize to his more than $22.4 million in career recorded online earnings. Astedt fought through this week’s field of 171 entries to reach a record-extending thirteenth Super MILLION$ final table. A favorite in any field, the winner of the PocketFives #1 NumberOne award was, once again, faced with top-tier competition en route to the win. Newly minted PokerStars pro Benjamin Rolle, Canada’s #1-ranked Mike Watson, 2019 WSOP Main Event finalist Dario Sammartino, and the start of day chip leader Kahle Burns all made the final nine, but in the end, it was Astedt that became just the second player in Super MILLION$ history to record more than two victories. On the very first hand of the final table, with the blinds at 20,000/40,000 (5,000 ante) current worldwide #5-ranked pro Mike Watson opened to 88,000 from the cutoff with [poker card="ac"][poker card="qd"]. After ‘Neel’ called from the button holding [poker card="6s"][poker card="6d"], Astedt three-bet to 332,500 from the small blind. When the action got back to Watson, he moved all-in for just over 1 million in chip and when ‘Neel’ released his hand, Astedt quickly called putting Watson at risk. The flop came [poker card="ts"][poker card="6h"][poker card="2c"], leaving Watson looking for help to survive. The turn was the [poker card="jd"], opening the door for a gutshot straight if he could catch one of the two remaining kings. But the river came the [poker card="9h"] and Watson’s day was over in just one hand as he exited in ninth place for $52,486. While Watson was felted quickly, the rest of the table had a mind to stick around for a while. The eight players passed chips around for more than an hour and twenty minutes before the next player hit the rail. The blinds were up to 35,000/70,000 (8,500 ante) and Dario Sammartino found himself sitting on the short stack with fewer than 10 big blinds left. The action folded to him in the small blind and he shipped all-in for just over 550,000 with [poker card="ks"][poker card="2c"] and Benjamin Rolle, in the big blind, made the call with a dominating [poker card="kd"][poker card="jc"]. The [poker card="8h"][poker card="8c"][poker card="3c"] flop offered Sammartino some chop opportunities to go along with his outs. The turn was the [poker card="kh"], keeping kickers in play. The [poker card="6s"] river was no help to Sammartino and the former 2019 WSOP Main Event final tablist added another $66,235 to his bankroll for an eighth-place finish. After the hand, Rolle, who started the day ninth in chips, has climbed to third overall. With the blinds at 40,000/80,000 (10,000 ante), Eelis Parssinen woke up with [poker card="ac"][poker card="ah"] in the small blind. With the table folding to him, he put in a raise to 200,000 and a short-stacked ‘oldfishing’ decided to defend his big blind with the [poker card="jd"][poker card="8d"]. The [poker card="qd"][poker card="8c"][poker card="3d"] flop gave ‘oldfishing’ a pair and a flush draw and when Parssinen bet 120,000 into him with his aces ‘oldfishing’ went with his hand and moved all-in. Parssinen quickly called and the pair saw a turn of the [poker card="js"], sending ‘oldfishing’s two pair into the lead. However, the river came the [poker card="3h"], giving Parssinen a better two pair and ending ‘oldfishing’s run in seventh place for $83,585. India’s ‘Neel’ found themselves slipping in the chip counts and when the blinds hit 60,000/120,000 (15,000 ante) he was looking for a spot to pick up some chips. When it folded to him in the cutoff, he put in a raise holding [poker card="kc"][poker card="jh"] to 900,000, leaving himself with roughly 5 big blinds behind. On the button, Astedt looked at [poker card="ah"][poker card="ac"] and put in a raise to 2.2 million, more than enough to put everyone left in the hand all-in. The blinds both folded and when it came back to ‘Neel’, he eventually shipped all-in. The flop came [poker card="qd"][poker card="9s"][poker card="8s"], giving ‘Neel’ outs to a gutshot straight. The [poker card="7s"] turn changed nothing and when the [poker card="qs"] river hit, Astedt picked up the healthy pot and increased his chip lead to roughly double the next closest player. ‘Neel’, who won his way into this week’s Super MILLION$ on a $525 satellite, parlayed that seat into a $105,482 payday for his sixth-place finish. After ‘Neel’ departed, Brazil’s Rodrigo Selouan was firmly in last place with roughly six big blinds in his stack. Four hands later, Rolle opened the button to 240,000 with his [poker card="ah"][poker card="ts"] and after Astedt folded his small blind, Selouan defended his big blind with the [poker card="qd"][poker card="4d"]. The [poker card="th"][poker card="4h"][poker card="2s"] flop gave both players a pair and when Selouan checked it over to Rolle, the new PokerStars Pro put in a bet of 120,000. Selouan check-shipped his stack of just over 500,000 and Rolle snap-called. The [poker card="js"] and [poker card="jh"] completed the board sending Selouan out in fifth for $133,113. Six hands later it was Parssinen’s turn to be all-in. During the same level, Astedt opened first-to-act to 240,000 with [poker card="6s"][poker card="6c"]. Four-handed, and on the button, Parssinen three-bet shoved his 14 big blind stack holding [poker card="ac"][poker card="5c"]. When the action returned to Astedt, he made the call and the flop came [poker card="as"][poker card="9s"][poker card="7s"], giving Parssinen top pair but providing Astedt with additional flush outs and backdoor straight outs. The turn was the [poker card="8h"] giving Astedt open-ended straight outs as well. Parssinen couldn’t dodge all of Astedt’s outs as the [poker card="js"] river gave Astedt the flush and the hand. Parssinen, who started the day second in chips, wrapped up in fourth place which was good for $167,983. Three-handed play lasted twenty minutes with start-of-day chip leader Kahle Burns looking up at both Rolle and Astedt, each of which had more than three times his stack. The blinds were up to 80,000/160,000 (20,000 ante) when Burns completed his small blind holding [poker card="9c"][poker card="7d"] and Rolle checked his option in the big blind with [poker card="9s"][poker card="6s"]. The [poker card="kh"][poker card="6c"][poker card="4s"] flop brought a pair for Rolle and the action checked through. The turn was the [poker card="td"] and again, the action went check-check. The [poker card="9h"] hit the river pairing both, but improving Rolle to two pair. Burns led the river for 462,000 and after a few moments, Rolle moved all-in. Burns took just a few seconds before making the call for the rest of his stack and seeing the bad news. Burns took home $211,988 for his third-place finish. Heads-up play between Rolle and Astedt started with Rolle having a 10 big blind chip lead. Astedt quickly clawed back the chip lead and was on the verge of closing it out a number of times until Rolle turned the tides once again. It became an entertaining back and forth affair with both players finding themselves on the brink of elimination multiple times. After Astedt picked off a river bluff attempt by Rolle with the blinds up to 200,000/400,000 (50,000 ante) - one of the longest Super MILLION$ in recent history - Rolle found himself left with fewer than 10 big blinds as Astedt continued to apply maximum pressure. The final hand had Rolle shipping nearly 3 million on the button with [poker card="9d"][poker card="6d"] and Astedt making the quick call in the big blind with his [poker card="kh"][poker card="8d"]. The [poker card="4d"][poker card="3h"][poker card="2d"] flop looked good for Rolle, giving him flush and straight outs to go along with pair possibilities. The turn was the [poker card="as"] and Rolle was left looking for one of his 17 outs. The [poker card="jc"] was not one of them and Rolle, who rose up from the shortest stack at the start of the day, bowed out as the runner-up and collected $267,520. Niklas Astedt picked up $337,559 for his third Super MILLION$ victory. The former worldwide #1-ranked pro joins Michael Addamo as the only two players to win a Super MILLION$ in both Season One and Season Two. Super MILLION$ Final Table Results (8/24) Niklas Astedt - $337,599 Benjamin Rolle - $267,520 Kahle Burns - $211,988 Eelis Parssinen - $167,983 Rodrigo Selouan - $133,113 'Neel' - $105,482 'oldfishing' - $83,585 Dario Sammartino - $66,235 Mike Watson - $52,486
