Bjartur had a grand time - let's make that a 25 grand time - Sunday night as he toppled nearly 1,000 poker players to win Bodog.com's $100,000 guaranteed weekly event.
The $100+$9 buy-in event attracted 990 players to vie for a piece of the guaranteed $100,000 prize pool. For his win over the field, Bjartur took home $25,000.
It didn't take long for Bjartur to claim the first place spot once play got down to heads-up. It took only one hand to finish off YoungGun7, whose second place finish earned him $14,000.
According to Bodog.com, Bjartur had pocket queens on the final hand against YoungGun7's A-K. Both players were all-in before the flop, which then came A-9-6.
Luck wasn't with YoungGun7 though as the turn brought a Q, giving Bjartur the set and the river was a harmless 10.
The final table results were as follows:
The $100,000 guaranteed tournament runs each Sunday at 4 p.m. (EST) at Bodog.com. The prize pool will be at least $100,000 no matter how many people enter.
