Timothy Adams, Michael Addamo and Darren Elias Bag Massive Scores to Open 2021

The big wins have already started piling in as 2021 continues where the unforgettable last year signed off, Tim Adams, Michael Addamo and Darren Elias bagging massive prizes as online continues to draw in the crowds…

Canadian highstakes crusher Adams, known by his online moniker "Tim0thee", landed a $167,591 payday in PokerStars Blowout Series, taking down the $5200 buy-in 8-max High Roller PKO.

Once the 148 entries were whittled down to the final table, Adams had to see off some stellar colleagues, with Ole Schemion, Matthias Eibinger, Patrick Leonard and the anonymous Russian online beast "CrazyLissy" among them.

By the time the tournament was heads-up, only Finnish pro Eelis "EEE27" Parssinen stood between Adams and an early 2021 title. They had each ensured a $70k payout, but the headhunting bonus would see one of them walk off with an extra-large paypacket.

Adams took it down, pocketing almost $100k in bounties, while Parsinnen had to settle for a not-inconsiderable 6-figure total cash.

Final results

1 Timothy "Tim0thee" Adams $70,755 $96,836 $167,591
2 Eelis "EEE27" Parssinen $70,755 $31,211 $101,966
3 Dominykas "Mikensonas" Mikolaitis $47,801 $9,063 $56,863
4 CrazyLissy $37,004 $19,375 $56,379
5 Patrick "pads1161" Leonard $28,646 $1,875 $30,521
6 Ole "wizowizo" Schemion $22,176 $1,250 $23,426
7 Ramiro "ramastar88" Petrone $17,167 $36,484 $53,652
8 Matthias "iambest2" Eibinger $13,290 $11,875 $25,165

There was a much longer battle required for Michael Addamo to capture his first trophy of the new year, the Australian seeing off 8724 other players on GGPoker to bag the $374,604 top prize.

The $400 buy-in Colossus was far below Addamo’s usual paygrade, but he showed he was just as adept at battling in a massive MTT as his usual highroller events. The top five were all guaranteed six-figure payouts, Estonia’s Tenno “ViioAwo” Tonts taking that spot and $118k.

By the time Addamo reached heads-up, only a short-stacked Hungary’s Tudor “hotsince93” Lazar stood in the way, and he couldn’t turnaround the 10-1 chip deficit.

The first GGPoker SuperMillions of 2021 saw Darren Elias bag the $448,842 top prize, seeing off Swedish legend Niklas Stsedt heads-up for the win.

The $10k buy-in event would see the final six all take home six-figure sums, and Adrian Mateos and Rui Ferreira were in the mix. That duo would fall in 6th and 5th respectively, with Enrico Camosci taking 4th for $205,795 and Ami Barer third for $266,833.

Elias’ heads-up toppling off Astedt was worth $448,842, his opponent having to settle for the $346,104 runner-up prize.
