Haxton busted in fourth for $45,000 with Bicknell falling in third for $65,000. Bicknell’s exit left Dan Smith and Greenwood to fight it out one-on-one for the title and the lion’s share of the prize pool.
There was almost $75,000 difference between first and second place but these Goliath’s of the poker world didn’t care about that and played the tournament out as it was intended. This meant Greenwood won $200,000 when he emerged victoriously leaving Smith to scoop $127,972.
SHRB #25 – High Roller: $500K Gtd [8-Max, 1-Day Event]

This meant Samuel Vousden managed to turn $10,300 into $252,350 in only a few hours by triumphing in the 25th event of the series.
Vousden defeated Timothy Adams heads-up for the title and the bulk of the prize pool. Adams can’t be too disappointed with second place as it awarded $180,250.
Thomas Muehloecker was the only other player to net six-figures from his investment. Muehloecker banked $128,750 when his tournament ended abruptly in third-place.
|4||Luke Reeves||United Kingdom||$90,125|

SHRB #26 – Super High Roller: $1M Gtd [8-Max, 1-Day Event]
Linus Loeliger won more than $1 million only a few weeks ago and yesterday netted another $520,000. He had a tough time of it at the final table of the last $25,500 event of the series because the final table was stacked beyond belief.
Haxton, Vogelsang, George Wolff and Adams all busted, Adams winning another six-figure prize. Alex Foxen then busted for $148,000 and was joined on the rail by his girlfriend Kristen Bicknell who collected $236,000.

The penultimate event of the series was a $10,300 buy-in eight-handed tournament with $500,000 guaranteed. Michael Addamo took it down to add $228,800 to his lifetime winnings.
That man Martirosian was at the final table, but he ran out of steam in third-place for $114,400.
The Russian’s exit left Badziakouski and Addamo to play one-on-one for the title. Addamo outwitted his talented opponent to get his hands on the top prize, leaving Badziakouski to bank $162,800.
