Viktor Blom Does it Again with Another SHRB Win for $407,500

Viktor Blom added another Super High Roller Bowl Online title to his belt last night with a $407,500 scoop of the $25k SHR, fighting off a stacked final table for the win…

By: Andrew Burnett

Blom had already banked close to $600k on day 3 of the 28-tournament series in partypoker, a win coupled to a runner-up finish, and yesterday he was in contention once again as the big money loomed.

With five players cashing from the initial 40 entries, it was Sam Greenwood (5th for $62,500) and Adrian Mateos (4th for a round $100,000) who departed at the end of day one in the money.

That left the highroller trio of Blom, Mike Watson and David Peters to settle matters on day two, with Peters unable to run up his short-stack, exiting in 3rd for $165k.

Watson against Blom heads-up saw the Swede prevail, taking his tally for the week to a single HR buy-in short of $1million.

Final results

1 Viktor Blom $407,500
2 Mike Watson $265,000
3 David Peters $165,000
4 Adrian Mateos $100,000
5 Sam Greenwood $62,500

David Peters’ fine form saw him add a win to that 3rd-spot cash, pocketing another $217k in the $10k HR, event 13.

The 8-max NLHE had seen partypoker’s Kristen Bicknell make the final table and the paid places, along with England’s Luke Reeves, although both hit the rail at the end of day one.

The six who returned included yesterday’s big winner, Justin Bonomo, along with Matthias Eibinger who managed two final tables on Wednesday.

The Austrian bagged 4th place for $63k and Bonomo finished 3rd this time, another $98k towards the leaderboard race that will see the winner after 27 tournaments gain free entry to the $100k buy-in finale.

Heads-up was Joao Vieira against Peters, and the US pro playing out of Costa Rica took down the win for $217,000.

Final results

1 David Peters $217,000
2 Joao Vieira $150,500
3 Justin Bonomo $98,000
4 Matthias Eibinger $63,000
5 Chris Hunichen $49,000
6 Aleksejs Meless $40,250
7 Kristen Bicknell $33,250
8 Lucas Reeves $26,250

The final event of the day, another $10k buy-in HR, saw Mark Radoja defeat Finland’s Pauli Äyräs heads-up for the title, with Bonomo once again in the money and Ole Schemion adding a 3rd place to his big win this week.
