KURGANOV WINS HRC SUNDAY SUPERSONIC

A total of 215 entries created a $218K prize pool, which was then shared between the top 24 players. While there were many top tier pros in the late stages, including Parker “tonkaaaa” Talbot (13th – $4,070), Kurganov was able to take it down.

HRC TITLES FOR MARGERESON AND JONES

There were plenty of other recognisable names taking down High Roller Club titles this weekend.

Scott Margereson bagged another online trophy in style, coming out on top in one of the toughest tournaments online. The $2,100 Sunday High Roller always attracts the game’s very best, and this week was no exception. Margereson was able to outlast a 104-entry field–and a final table which included Igor Kurganov (7th) and Romeo “RomeOpro” Romanovsky (3rd)–to win it for $47,930.

Meanwhile, Ben “jenbizzle” Jones was busy capturing another title with his victory in the $1,050 Sunday Warm-Up. Jones added $49K to his bankroll after that win.

“sica26” WINS SUNDAY MILLION FOR $101K

The $109 Sunday Million has yet another Romanian winner, with “sica26” emerging victorious over the 10,224-entry field to win $101,770 after a heads-up chop. Their final opponent, Canada’s “slarki1”, banked $81,770 for finishing in second.

This week saw a prize pool of $1,022,400 split between the top 1,826 finishers. Both Fintan “easywithaces” Hand and Lex Veldhuis made the money, finishing in 500th ($314) and 846th ($273) respectively.
