  1. Just three days ago, Ronny Kaiser topped a 123-entry field in Event #45-H ($2,100 PLO-NL Turbo) to win $63,721.40. Turns out, that was just an appetizer for what became a main course with a half million dollar payday. On Thursday night, Kaiser beat 87 other entries in Event #57-H ($25,500 Super High Roller) to grab the $508,447.84 first place prize. Mikita Badziakouski came in second place and earned a $391,973.06 consolation prize while Christian Rudolph found the podium yet again, this time banking $302,180.28 for finishing in third place. The second biggest first-place prize of the night belonged to 'CrossfireX' who bet out 158 other players to win Event #58-H ($10,300 Thursday Thriller Bounty). Russia's Sergei Denisov was the runner-up for $157,919.64. While former #1-ranked Joao Simao took home $137,086.49 for finishing in third.

Kelopuro, another former #1, earned $135,998.08 after making a heads-up deal with Eelis Parssinen.

  2. Wednesday turned out to be a relatively quiet day on the GGPoker Spring Festival schedule with just three High level buy-in events playing down to a winner and not a single one of them cracked the six-digit earnings mark. The biggest winner on the day was Dan 'Apowers1968' Colpoys who beat the 294-entry field in Event #53-H ($2,100 Bounty) to win $92,222.98. The final bounty Colpoys collected on his way to victory belonged to Chris Puetz who pocketed $57,851.80 as the runner-up. Third place went to 'judd trump'. After winning a pair of GG Spring Festival events earlier this week, they had to settle for $38,345.99 for their Wednesday efforts.

Meanwhile, runner-up 'FiestaPagana' had to console themselves with $30,240.79 while third place gave a $21,864.70 payday. Christian Rudolph has enjoyed plenty of success in the GGPoker Spring Festival to date. He won Event #27-H ($2,100 Bounty) and Event #27-M ($210 Bounty) and then finished second in Event #35-H ($10,300 PLO-NL High Roller). He was on his way to a third title before 'Whattherules' derailed those plans by taking down Event #55-H ($525 Bounty) leaving Rudolph to take second place yet again.

  3. Niklas Astedt is having himself one helluva week. The former #1-ranked PocketFiver, who is a #1 seed in the PocketFives #1 Number One contest, has rattled off win after win over the past week, with success coming at both the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker and GGPoker Spring Festival tables. On Tuesday, the Swedish superstar took home nearly $1.1 million for winning GGPoker Spring Festival Event #41 ($25,500 Sunday Five Million [2-Day Event]). Astedt beat out 201 other entries to pick up the win, his fourth of the series. Shawn Daniels finished second for $821,689.32 and Jason Koon took third place for a $616,180.06 payday. Along with his four GGPoker Spring Festival wins and the $1.38 million that came with those victories, Astedt also took down PokerStars SCOOP Event #31-H ($1,050 NLHE [8-Max]) for $85,430.33. He was one of a handful of well known players who emerged victorious on Tuesday. Another former #1, Sami Kelopuro, earned $520,003.49 for beating 89 other entries in Event #49 ($25,500 Super High Roller). His last victim, Wiktor Malinowski had to settle for a $400,881.54 while the current #1-ranked online poker player in the world, Yuri Dzivielevski wound up in third place, earning $309,048.01. Benjamin Rolle had the third biggest first place score of the day after shipping Event #50 ($5,250 Half Price Super Tuesday) for $236,019.99.

Coming in one spot short of the title, 'TheBigKid' banked $176.989.99 while third place finisher Pablo Navarro earned $132,723.74. Normally, a player winning titles on back-to-back days would be the headliner, but with so many big names winning big scores, 'judd trump' taking down Event #44 ($1,050 High Rollers Main Event) one day after winning Event #43-H ($5,250 Bounty Hunters SHR) got pushed down the page. This win came with a $95,783.54 score for beating out 544 other entries. Runner-up 'LaxxedAF' won $71,827.30 while 'FiestaPagana' grabbed the final spot on the podium for $53,862.87.

  4. Monday was a relatively quiet day on the GGPoker Spring Festival final tables but that didn't stop 'judd trump' from bounty hunting their way to a six-figure score while one player managed to play bridesmaid in two of the three High buy-in events. There were 159 entries in Event #43-H ($5,250 Bounty Hunters SHR) and 'judd trump' was more than happy to collect a bunch of them on their way to the win. For being the last player standing, the China-based player collected $151,617.21. 'kazanova2020', who won a bounty event earlier in the series, finished as the runner-up for $95,366.06.

  5. A super Saturday in the GGPoker Spring Festival saw over $2 million awarded in prizes across six High lebel events. There were three players and two PocketFivers who picked up their maiden GGSF titles whilst Lev Gottlieb captured his third first place finish of the series. It was only two days ago that Pocket Five Senior Writer Jeff Walsh pointed out the rarity of a player winning three titles in the same series like SCOOP 2021 star Dejan Kaladurdevic. Well proverbial lightening has stricken twice as this feat has quickly been emulated over at GG Poker in its spring flagship tournament series. Lev Gottlieb dominated Day 3 of the GGPoker Spring Festival, notching victories in both Event #5-H ($10,300 Super MILLION$) and Event #15-H ($10,300 Super Tuesday) for a days taking of over $900,000. Gottlieb, who last summer took down the $10,000 Short Deck No Limit Hold'em Championship in the 2020 GGPoker WSOP Online Bracelet Events for $276,393.39 and a gold bracelet, continued to show he was force to be reckoned with across several poker variants. He completed his hat-trick of series titles, this time being the last man standing in Event #35-H ($10,300 PLO-NL High Roller) for $199,770.92. This takes his earnings for the Series over the $1.1 million mark. The 69 player field generated a prize pool of $690,000 with Event #27-H ($2,100 Bounty) champion, Chris Rudolph taking second place for $144,438.31. The third place payout of $104,431.80 went to Eelis Parssinen, in addition to the $180,439.06 the player had already won following their win in Event #33-H ($5,250 PLO-NL Bounty). Parssinen's PLO plunder came at the expense of runner-up 'jochee' who earned $61,471.52 for their efforts. With Wei Zhao adding a slightly less $57,597.45 to their bankroll. A total of $2,216,000 in prizes was awarded across the six High level events,. The first player who took a chunk of change from that money was Michael 'SirWatts' Watson. The Canadian poker player, bested 242 other entries over two days to be crowned the winner of Event #28-H ($1,050 High Rollers Main Event). The $52,176.54 prize now takes Watson's career live and online earnings to just $10,000 shy of $20 million. The next two events, both of which had an overlay, catered to the Asian time zone. Event #31-H ($210 Bounty Hunters Asia) winner 'dajingjing' took home their first title of the Series and the $23,715.30 first place prize. The event saw a total of 670 entries with 'gokchinees!' and 'BIG NASTY' finishing in second and third place for $15,220.27 and $10,808.11 respectively. Event #32-H ($525 Asia Major), had a prize pool of $300,000 with 592 entries. Dalton 'dalthonhb' Hobold playing under the alias 'Morgota' joined Watson as the second PocketFiver to achieve poker glory by topping the field for $50,852 taking his online career earnings to $2,557,517. A second place for Timothy Ulmer saw $38,143.49 head his way with 'Apowers1968' taking home $28,603.58 for third. In the last event of the day 'FivebetGAMER' won $26,650.16 for outlasting 321 other entries in Event #36 ($525 Bounty Hunter [6-Max]_. RaiseYourEdge course maker and PocketFiver Joshua 'slayerv1fan' Hoesel was on the losing side of the heads up battle for $21,462 and the player to round off the podium finishes for the day was Aleksei Barkov. The Russian poker pro secured a five figure payday with a pay out of $11,678.55. Other winners on Saturday included ‘Fireball’ (Event #31-L), ‘pokepwr’ (Event #31-M), ‘mikuseni’ (Event #32-L), ‘Insktinkt’ (Event #32-M), ‘LunaLove11’ (Event #33-L), ‘Biezpienelis’ (Event #33-M), ‘SAPCpokeranimmal' (Event #34-L), ‘PieOMy’ (Event #34-M), ‘Gergo Nagy’ (Event #35-L), Amichai Barer (Event #35-M), ‘justdontcry’ (Event #36-L), Jack Salter (Event #36-M).

  6. 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.

  7. Anybody who has closely followed the PocketFives Rankings over the past few years knows all about Niklas Astedt and just how dominant he can be. He's spent 97 total weeks as the #1-ranked player in the world and many consider him the favorite to win the #1 Number One contest. On Wednesday, Astedt took down a GGPoker Spring Festival event for the second time in two days. On Tuesday, he won Event #14-H ($1,050 PLO-NL Bounty) for a $39,974.81.

Maslak, who won Event #3-High ($5,250 Bounty Hunters Main Event) for $229,531.42, earlier in the week, took second here for $25,377.81. The last spot on the podium went to 'BreakMySoul' for $18,348.66. The last High level buy-in event of the day was Event #21-H ($525 bounty) and it was also the biggest of the group in terms of field size.

  8. The GGPoker Spring Festival is only into Day 3, but there's already a Series Most Valuable Player frontrunner. Lev Gottlieb, who won a World Series of Poker bracelet last summer on GGPoker, took down a pair of $10,000 buy-in events on Tuesday, including the $10,300 Super MILLION$, for more than $900,000 in earnings. Over the past 18 months, the Super MILLION$ on GGPoker has become a marquee online poker event with some of poker's best players duking it out each week for their share of $2 million in prize money. On Tuesday, Gottlieb topped the super-sized 312-entry field in Event #5-H ($10,300 Super MILLION$) to win $586,075.23. Runner-up Pedro Garagnani was left to console himself with $451,925.51 while third place went to 'LUCKuHARD' for $348,482.24. At the same time, Gottlieb was working his way through 140 other players in Event #15-H ($10,300 Super Tuesday), including runner-up Joao Vieira and third place finisher Timothy Adams, to add another $320,728.78 to his haul for the day. Vieira, who made a couple of podium appearances on Tuesday, won $240,512.62, while Adams earned $180,359.04 for his performance. The third and final five-figure buy-in event on the day, Event #15-H ($25,500 Super High Roller), drew 85 runners for a $2,125,000 prize pool. Ottomar Ladva, an Estonian chess grandmaster, beat all of them to win $446,446.20. This is Ladva's second high-profile poker win this year. In February, he defeated Justin Bonomo heads up to take down the partypoker MILLIONS Online $25,000 Super High Roller. This time around, Marius Gierse was cast as the runner-up, earning $435,789.71 in the process and Juan Dominguez finished in third for $301,474.56.

The partnership with deadmau5 doesn’t end there as he will also be partaking in the action, along with many of the GGPoker ambassadors, in his own $10K GG Legends Bounty tournament taking place on April 10. “This is going to be the biggest online poker event of all time and will blow a lot of people’s minds,” said GGPoker ambassador Daniel Negreanu. “From the deadmau5-hosted launch party and other festival elements to the massive headline event guarantees, it’s a true poker party from start to finish, and I can’t wait for it to get underway.” A trio of headline events includes some of the biggest guarantees of the festival. The Main Event (High) is a $1,500 buy-in tournament with a $10 million guarantee. The high-roller Super MILLION$ Main Event (High) is a $10,300 buy-in event with another $10 million guaranteed.
