Scotsman Geilich has been promising to break into the highroller winner’s circle with several recent strong results, and in yesterday’s $10k 6-max, event 12 of the series, he finally made it.

The Team partypoker pro was one of 69 entries to the $500k GTD tournament, with his teammate Kristen Bicknell finishing 8th and Luuk Gieles bubbling the final table on day two.

Among the final six contenders was Alexandros Kolonias, the Greek pro who took down the Poker Masters Online Purple Jacket almost exactly a month ago.

Indeed, it was Kolonias who provided the main opposition for Geilich, the duo meeting heads-up and the win going to the Scottish pro, a $238,676 cash.

Final results

1 Ludovic Geilich $238,676
2 Alexandros Kolonias $155,250
3 Seth Davis $82,800
4 Andrii Novak $62,100
5 Giuseppe Iadisernia $44,850
6 Jon Van Fleet $31,050

Prior to Geilich’s victory, the daily $25k Super High Roller witnessed another top-class final table fighting for a $600k+ first prize, with Wiktor Malinowski pocketing the first of the 6-figure payouts in 5th spot.

Cyprus’ Selahaddin Bedir was an unexpected name, bagging 4th place and $162,000 and when Eibinger hit the rail in 3rd for $216,00 it left two poker beasts to battle it out for the title.

Russia’s Artur Martirosyan has become one of the highroller elite players in recent months, but yesterday he had to settle for 2nd place and $405,000 – losing out to one of the biggest moneywinners of all time, Justin Bonomo, who took home $622,634.

Final Results

1 Justin Bonomo $622,634
2 Artur Martirosyan $405,000
3 Matthias Eibinger $216,000
4 Selahaddin Bedir $162,000
5 Wiktor Malinowski $117,000
6 Ali Imsirovic $81,000

The opening event of the day had seen another 6-max $10k buy-in NLHE, with 77 players,  Malinowski and Gieles both showing up at the final table.

Austria’s Matthias Eibinger was also on a double run, but he couldn’t quite convert it into a win – finishing runner-up for $150,150 as Vicent Ramon took down the title and $240,860.

Final results

1 Vicent Ramon $240,860
2 Matthias Eibinger $150,150
3 Luuk Gieles $92,400
4 Wiktor Malinowski $67,375
5 Mike Watson $48,125
6 Nick Petrangelo $32,725
