  • Anton Wigg was among the big online winners this weekend after taking down the PokerStars Bigger $109.

Swedish superstar Anton “antesvante” Wigg was among the big winners on Jan. 14 courtesy of him taking down the Bigger $109 at PokerStars.

Wigg was one of 1,829 entrants in the Bigger $109 tournament this week, a field that created a guarantee-busting $182,900 prize pool. Several notable players navigated their way into the money places, including Dennis “DBerglin” Berglin, Ludovic “ludovi333” Geilich, Russell “rdcrsn” Carson, and Owain “sngwonder” Carey.

The final table was a star-studded affair that grew less shark-infested with the elimination of Daryl “DJG1989” Green in eighth place. By the time only three players remained in the Bigger $109, the least amount of money any of the trio could win was $13,992. This is the sum awarded to Brazil’s “SitPro2011” who busted in third, which left Wigg and Mexico’s “LrdofDonkTwn” to go head-to-head for the title and the $27,539 first-place prize.

It was Wigg who emerged victorious, in the 180th online poker tournament win of his career. "LrdofDonkTwn" collected $19,629 for his runner-up finish.

The largest cash of the weekend went to the PokerStars account of the United Kingdom’s “panda713”. A recreational player with $15,000 in winnings at PokerStars, according to the PokerStars Blog, "panda713" mixed it up with the pros and came out on top in the Sunday Million to bank a cool $108,985 after a four-handed deal.

“Ferran789999” finished second and collected $99,717, “@rtemur” was the third-place finisher and banked $93,683, and “Ewokwat” of Canada came in fourth-place for a $100,200 score.
