Astedt had a remarkable Sunday at Poker Stars, winning a pair of impressive high stakes tournaments to help him win almost $130,000. Astedt won the $5,200 Titans Event, the $1,050 Sunday Supersonic, and the $1,050 High Roller. He finished in second place. What a man!
The fact that Astedt won the star-studded $5,200
Titans Event contributed the most to his Sunday earnings. Sixty-eight of the best poker players in the world bought in and fought hard for a piece of the $340,000 in cash. The winner, Astedt, took home $91,769. Each of the nine finalists secured at least $10,000.
Before Marius “DEX888” Gierse ran out of steam and chipped, Talal “raidalot” Shakerchi finished ninth for $10,600. After that, Ognyan “cocojamb0” Dimov died in seventh place, earning $16,202 in prize money.
Canada’s “Stumpfed” took sixth place and $21,632 in prize money. The Canadian then won the $1,050 Sunday Warm-Up, which was worth over $19,000.
The subsequent casualties were Yuri “theNERDguy” Dzivielevski and Michael “imluckbox” Addamo. The talented duo added $28,881 and $38,560 to their respective bankrolls. With $51,482 in his pocket, Christian “WATnlos” Rudolph’s exit in third place set the tone for the match.
Astedt and “SerVlaMin” engaged in head-on combat, and the latter was clearly losing. When Astedt fights alone, he rarely loses, and this was not one of those rare occasions. The Swedish superstar beat SerVlaMin out of second place and took home $91,769, leaving the runner-up with a consolation prize of $68,735.
Triumph Number Two for Astedt
The $1,050 Sunday Supersonic saw a minimal field of 39 contestants make a $39,618 prize pool, which Astedt guaranteed $15,544 from. The Czech grinder Vojta “vojta555cz Skalak took home the $2,859 fifth-place prize, which was shared by only the top five finishers.
Peter “Belabacsi” Traply, a legendary Hungarian poker player, lost in fourth place for $4,366, and “zerodeda” finished third for $6,667. This put Astedt in a head-to-head matchup with the aforementioned “Stumpfed.” Again, Astedt performed admirably at the tournament’s conclusion, earning $15,544, leaving Stumpfed with a second-place prize of $10,180.
Dane Wins the Party Poker Grand Denmark’s Oskar Masses son won the $1,050 Grand online tournament this weekend, leaving behind a slew of great players. This event had a total of seventy-five participants, leading to a prize pool of $76,400.
Juan Carlos Vecino, Jonathan Proud foot, Ioannis Angelou-Konstas, and Patrick Lauber all made it to the final table, but none of them were able to take home the title. Another well-known online player from Sweden, Simon Mattsson, finished third for $8,511, the final four-figure win.
In head-to-head, Tomi Brouk of Finland and Masses son fought for supremacy. The heads-up pair, on the other hand, decided to conclude the tournament with a deal, earning each more than $15,000 for their efforts.
The Mystery Bounty Festival at 888poker keeps bringing in big wins
As players embrace this exciting tournament format, the Mystery Bounty Festival keeps bringing in big wins. This ongoing festival is the first of its kind, and 888poker is still the only online poker site that organizes daily Mystery Bounty events.
1,074 people registered for the $55 buy-in for the inaugural Mystery Bounty Festival’s 14th numbered event. The record-breaking turnout ensured that the $50,000 guarantee was met by $3,700.
Even though Finland’s “Jackpot1337” came in tenth place and narrowly missed making it to the final table, they actually took home the second-most money. Jackpot1337 won the top mystery bounty of $5,000, which, when added to their $344 score and another $521 worth of scalps, gave them a total of $5,866; only the champion received more cash!
That champion was, in all honesty “JovemNerd94” of Brazil, who saw their $55 venture swell to $6,126 altogether. The second-place finisher will be paid $4,036 after the Brazilian “geirto” is defeated.
