Viktor Blom Dominates SHRB Online Day 3 with Victory and 2nd Place

It was the Viktor Blom Show at the Super High Roller Bowl Online, the Swedish crusher taking down a win worth $213,750 and a runner-up spot for $365,000 on day three of the 28-tournament series on partypoker…

His win came in event 9, the $500k GTD 8-max NLHE, which saw 75 entries paying $10k apiece, with 11 players hitting the paid spots.

Seth Davies was the unlucky one to miss out on the bubble, with Mikita Badziakouski, Rui Ferreira and Justin Bonomo cashing but falling shy of the final table.

One player who made the final eight was Dan Smith, and although he fell first he had much bigger fish to fry as we will see. Ireland’s Mark Davis added yet another cash to an impressive string of recent results, as did partypoker’s Kristen Bicknell.

Arnaud Enselme took the first 6-figure payout in 3rd spot, leaving Blom to face Germany’s Christoph Vogelsang heads-up, the Swede emerging triumphant to pocket the $213,750 winner’s prize.

Final results

1 Viktor Blom $213,750
2 Christoph Vogelsang $146,250
3 Arnaud Enselme $101,250
4 George Wolff $67,500
5 Kristen Bicknell $52,500
6 Mark Davis $41,250
7 Darrell Goh $33,750
8 Dan Smith $26,250

As usual there was a $25k buy-in SHR nestled between two $10k events on the daily schedule, and Blom came very close to a double title.

The 68 entries had smashed the $1million guarantee by $700k, Northern Ireland’s Darrell Goh again making it to the paid spots in 8th that took his daily cashes close to $100k.

This time it was Bicknell’s boyfriend Alex Foxen running deep, 5th place and $119,000 the result, with England’s Simon Higgins bagging 4th place and $153k.

When Russia’s Artur Martirosyan hit the rail in 3rd for $283k, it left Blom facing Dan Smith for the title.

The Swede couldn’t repeat his $10k win and had to settle for a $365,500 runner-up payday, the victory worth $527,000 going to Cowboy Dan.

1 Dan Smith $527,000
2 Viktor Blom $365,500
3 Artur Martirosian $283,000
4 Simon Higgins $153,000
5 Alex Foxen $119,000
6 Giuseppe Iadisernia $97,750
7 Orpen Kisacikoglu $80,750
8 Darrell Goh $63,750

The third, or rather first, tournament of the day attracted 90 entries and saw Badziakouski and another Irishman, John O’Shea cashing, with the win going to Luuk Gieles who defeated George Wolff heads-up for the $234,000 top prize.

1 Luuk Gieles $234,000
