Tenno Tonts secured the largest prize awarded during the APAT WCOAP so far when he triumphed in the $530 buy-in Super High Roller event.
Some 223 players bought in, which meant the $100,000 guaranteed prize pool was surpassed by $11,500. The top 34 finishers received a slice of this ample pie so spare a thought for Canadian Kerry Shears who busted in 35th place and burst the bubble.
A min-cash weighed in at $1,232 and this payout swelled to $3,371 by the time the seven-handed final table was reached.
Sven Matthias of Germany was the first finalist to bite the dust. Markus Prinz and Dean Pearson, of Austria and the United Kingdom respectively, were the next to fall. Their partypoker account balances increased by $4,171 and $5,307.
Erik Tamm was the fourth-place finisher, a finish worth $7,335.
Tamm’s demise meant the surviving three players locked up a five-figure score. Silvio Costawas the first of this trio to scoop such a sum, namely $10,890 for his third-place finish.
Heads-up pitted Alexandr Trofimov and the aforementioned Tonts in a one-on-one battle for the title. Tonts emerged from the battle unscathed and with $22,357 reasons to be happy. Trofimov collected $15,491 for his runner-up finish.
