There aren’t many Sundays which go by without Andras “probirs” Nemeth scooping himself a High Roller Club victory, regardless of how tough his final opponents are.
Yesterday (August 4) was more of the same for the Hungarian, as he came out on top in the HRC $2,100 Sunday Cooldown for $22,701 plus a healthy $39,593 in bounties. He now sits as the #1 ranked online player in the world, according to PocketFives.
The tournament had 95 total entries, creating a $190K prize pool split between the last 11 players. They included Preben “prebz” Stokkan, former #1 and current #2 ranked online player Niklas “Lena900” Astedt, and runner-up Benjamin “bencb789” Rolle.
Nemeth now has just under $12.9M in career online earnings.
The $109 Sunday Million field continues to grow each week, with 11,545 entries creating a $1,154,500 prize pool yesterday.
As any tournament player knows, all the big money is in the top three places, and that’s exactly where the tournament paused for a chop. In the end it was the UK’s “losero88” who can now call himself a winner, banking $95,598. Runner-up “nlfreddie”–also from the UK–won $77,385, whilst third-place finisher “DanielLUCKY” from Sweden added $91,486 to his bankroll.
Benjamin “Spraggy” Spragg was the only PokerStars Ambassador to play this one yesterday, and he cashed for $182, finishing in 1,664th place.
One player who was kept busy until the early hours, albeit in hyper turbo events, was Finland’s Sami “lrslzk” Kelopuro.
He made not one but two Sunday Supersonic final tables, winning the $215 edition for $21,700, whilst simultaneously finishing fifth in the High Roller Club’s $1,050 edition for an additional $11,576.
Kelopuro now has more than $5.3M in online earnings.
