Headlines from the weekend…
Six years ago, Bulgarian player “Ifkata” got a big bankroll boost by winning a MicroMillions event, turning $2 into $13K in the process. Last year it was a SCOOP win in Event #37-L, good for $26K. This weekend Ifkata kept the cycle going, winning this week’s Sunday Million.
Ifkata banked $109,996 following a three-handed deal with Croatia’s “5 banki” and Romania’s “platin32.” After stepping up with every big win, what’s next for the Bulgarian? Only time will tell.
Jerry “Perrymejsen” has been enjoying a nice run of late. The two-time Super Tuesday winner took down Event #48-H ($530 PL Omaha H/L) during this year’s SCOOP, picking up a healthy $29K score in the process. This week he kept the good vibes going with a huge win in the High Roller Club $530 Bounty Builder. Ödeen outdid his SCOOP score with the $37K regular prize alone before adding another $32K in bounties on top. That was good for a total cash of nearly $70,000, making him the weekend’s biggest HRC winner.
The second-biggest HRC score of the weekend went to another SCOOP champ, Ivan “Negriin” Luca. The winner of SCOOP-01-H topped this week’s $2,100 Sunday High Roller for $37,247, topping last week’s appearance at the very same final table. Luca beat Johannes “Greenstone25” Korsar heads-up after getting past Thomas “WushuTM” Muehloecker and Kahle “ROFLShove” Burns along the way.
Also of note was the $530 Omania HR win for last week’s Sunday Million champ. Matheus “pimenta7” Pimenta earned $10K after beating Uruguay’s komarolo22 heads-up.
