So Close to Two Thursday Festival Online Titles for “samsungas”
The action has been intensifying in The Festival Online Series, with all roads leading to the mammoth main event around the corner.
The week saw Thursday night thrills in a $109 Texas Super PKO with $12,000 guaranteed, which we live-streamed, and a Texas LowRoller, a small $22 buy-in with a massive $10,000 guarantee.
Sunday brought around the majors, and with that came huge events and online poker talent vying for the Festival trophy and a boost to their poker bankroll.
The $109 Sunday Big Shot $100,000 guaranteed was the one with everyone’s attention, and read below to find out how you can watch the final table action and win some big poker tournament tickets for free!
So Close for Historic Double from “samsungas” While “Farrugia_1” Makes Sunday Deep Run
On Thursday night, no player on 888poker ran hotter than “samsungas”. After registering for both Festival Online events running, they would find themselves within a whisker from winning two Festival trophies.
They would first dominate the $12,000 Texas Super KO, outlasting myself and 130 players to capture the title and a healthy $2,355.43 - the action was non-stop in this poker tournament, with the flat pay-out structure yet huge bounties on each player, leaving it a tough spot to navigate.
While cruising through that victory, “samsungas” played the $10,000 Texas LowRoller and would get through a 424-player field to be heads-up against Brazilian “Turkovisk”. They would, unfortunately, fall short at this hurdle but still bag themselves $1,453.29 for their colossal run.
The Maltese “Farrugia_1” has become a familiar name to those who grind the higher stakes on 888poker, with his name always appearing in the biggest tournaments and the latest stages.
The high-stakes MTT crusher has done it again, putting themselves in the mix in the final 9 of the Sunday Big Shot $100,000 - they will enter a final table with 1.7 million chips and in 4th place. You would not bet your money against the former WPT Deepstack champion to find their second Festival Online trophy in this series.
When discussing Festival Online champions, we should add “zavor4ik” into the mix. The Austrian 888poker MTT regular battled through the $40,000 Sunday High Roller, mixing it with the best. A sweet victory for them bagged them a juicy $11,340 on their initial $525 investment.
