by Christian Zetzsche

It was a busy last few days on the online poker tables of the global partypoker platform as the S19 World Poker Tour World Online Championships (WOC) crowned winners in the Super High Roller Championship, the three editions of the 6-Max Championship and the bargain Super50 and Super 5 Events. Furthermore, the WPT500 Knockout final table has been reached and it is certainly a stacked line-up for the live-streamed showdown.

Ole Schemion Crowned Winner of the Super High Roller

Sunday is typically the busiest day in the world of online poker and this past weekend was no different. The high-stakes aficionados battled in various competitions and one of them was Event #12 Super High Roller. With a price tag of $25,500, it attracted some of the biggest names in poker and a very familiar name ended up as the winner. The tournament gathered 48 entries and the $1.2 million prize pool was split among the top nine finishers.

German superstar Ole Schemion came out on top of a stacked final table and overcame Jason Koon in heads-up. Prior to that, Justin Bonomo, Vyycheslav Buldygin, and Artur Martirosian were all sent to the rail in the money. Schemion has many accolades to his name and earned more than $16 million in cashes on the live poker scene. This included a victory in the S16 WPT European Championship €3,300 Main Event in Berlin, for which he joined the elusive WPT Champions Club.

Schemion earned the top prize of $388,708.80 while Koon and Bonomo had to settle for $238,734 and $155,695.20 respectively. Canadian High Roller regular Sam Greenwood ended up as the bubble boy while the two Finnish high stakes players Eelis Pärssinen and Sami Kelopuro were the first two to cash.

Event #08 WPT500 Knockout Final Table Set

The second edition of the popular mid-stakes WPT500 is down to the wire as Event #08 WPT500 Knockout will determine a winner today. Out of a field of 2,126 entries, only 317 players had reached Day 2 and battled for their share of the $1,063,000 in prize money. Those were split evenly in cash and bounty pools and the biggest slice will be up for grabs on the nine-handed final table.

It is filled with plenty of big names on the international poker circuit and Arseniy Malinov leads the pack with 74 big blinds and more than $11k in bounties. Recent WSOP bracelet winner Alexandros Theologis will aim to add another title to his resume for the current year and enters as the second-biggest stack. Besides Malinov, another two Russian players made the cut including Viacheslav Zaslavskii and Ilia Plaxin. Alexandru Baron has a WSOP bracelet to his name, as does the 2019 WSOP Europe Main Event champion Alexandros Kolonias, to showcase what a stacked final table it is.

They return at 8.05 pm BST with blinds of 1.5M / 3M which gives the shortest stack Daniel Colpoys 11 blinds. All finalists have $6,243.40 in cash locked up on top of their accumulated bounty prizes, which will certainly play a big role in the showdown.
