Tim Adams wins Super High Roller Bowl Russia for $3.6million

Canadas Timothy Adams produced back-to-back Super High Roller Bowl victories last night by taking down the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS SHRB Russia last night, scooping $3.6million to go with his $1.45million SHRB Australia win last month…

The finale of the partypoker SHR series in Sochi saw 40 entries to the $250,000 buy-in tournament, 30 unique entries including the likes of Phil Ivey, Bryn Kenney, Jason Koon and Stephen Chidwick.

The Englishman was the only one of this quartet to make it through to the final day’s play, but he failed to bag a share of the $10million prizepool when he was knocked out on the money bubble.

That left six players in the money, a $600k min cash, with two of them previous winners of an SHRB – Adams as mentioned, and Germany’s Christoph Vogelsang, a winner of the 3rd running back in 2017.

Vogelsang dispatched both Chidwick and Ivan Leow (6th for $600k) before a surprise hero-to-zero bustout of Adrian Mateos, the Spaniard losing three all-in preflop flips in a row to depart in 5th ($800k)

♦ ♥ ♣ ♠

Mateos: 2♥ 2♠
Heath: A♦ Q♣
Board: A♣ A♠ 5♠ 9♥ 8♦

Ben Heath would be next to go, however, a $1million payout as consolation after his short stack shove was called by Adams, and that left Mikita Badziakouski as the only man standing between Vogelasang or Adams joining Justin Bonomo as a double-SHRB champion.

It wasn’t to be for the Belarus crusher, however, getting his 10BBs in good against Vogelsang only to see his opponent flop top and bottom pair. No help from the turn and river meant Badziakouski had to settle for $1.6million.

It had already been a long day, the final four battling away for hours, and heads-up saw the duo skip a level to speed things up, and eventually things came to a climax…

♦ ♥ ♣ ♠

Adams: A♥ 9♠
Vogelsang: A♣ 6♦
Board: 5♠ 2♦ 10♥ J♥ 9♦

That gave Adams a remarkable double, back-to-back Super High Roller Bowl titles in the space of 2 months and a jump into the top 20 of the all-time tournament moneywinners list for the first time.

Vogelsang’s $2.4million runner-up cash does the same for the German, both leapfrogging Phil Hellmuth.

Final results

1 Timothy Adams $3,600,000
2 Christoph Vogelsang $2,400,000
3 Mikita Badziakouski $1,600,000
4 Ben Heath $1,000,000
5 Adrian Mateos $800,000
6 Ivan Leow $600,000
