Ivan Zufic has been one of the top performers in online poker this year. He managed to take down the $500 buy-in WSOP Online Mini Main Event that took place in August, where he won a total of $843,460. However, he continued to be active throughout the festival and took part in several other events, and one of them happened to be the $500 buy-in High Roller MILLION$.
Once again, Zugic emerged a winner, collecting a total of $354,147. The event had $2 million in guaranteed prizes, but the final prize pool was higher for $123,725. A total of 450 top players were able to win a piece of the prize, with the minimum cash being $1,227. The final nine players increased that sum to $17,207.
The Final Table Overview
The first player to hit the rail was Greece’s “WOLFIE,” who won the minimum amount for the final table. After that, he was followed by Nicklas Astedt, one of the most successful online poker players of all time. Astedt ended up in eighth place in this tournament, bagging a total of $25,113.
The seventh-place was reserved for Diogo Veiga from Canada, who managed to earn $36,651, and “dirtynude” from Moldova followed soon after that for $53,489.
A player nicknamed “LY_LOVE” from China hit the rail in fifth place, earning a total of $53,489. After that, it was time for Ireland’s Arthur Conan to hit the rail for $113,928.
“Eldonko” was the last player to leave the game before the heads-up play. They won $166,271 for their effort.
The final opponent to Ivan Zufic was Pavel Plesuv, who uses the online moniker “EzzzGame.” The difference between the first-placed and second-placed player was more than $110,000, but the duo didn’t want to make a deal. Therefore, Plesuv ended up with a consolation prize of $242,660, whereas Ivan Zufic had the honor of winning another WSOP Online event at GGPoker.
