First Ring Winners Crowned in GGPoker's WSOP Super Circuit Online

Mario Mosboeck

While the dust from GGPoker's dazzling $150M Gtd. GG Spring Festival has barely settled, another nine-figure extravaganza kicked off this weekend to keep the excitement going.

Accompanied with a juicy $100 million in guarantees, 20 WSOP ring events are up for grabs in the WSOP Super Circuit Online Series running from May 1-30.

This weekend, three players captured the coveted prize with China's "Bangshifu" emerging as the biggest winner overall. "Bangshifu" topped a whopping 18,733-player field to turn a buy-in of just $100 into a payday of $147,013 in Event #1: $100 Super Circuit Kick-Off. Other newly crowned champs were Austria's Mario Mosboeck, who's been on a tear as of late, and "PHJ10" playing from Mexico.

Mosboeck won $129,700 in Event #3: $400 DOUBLE STACK MILLION after a deal with Csaba "PumpedGabo" Szasz, while "PHJ10" wasn't fazed by the big names in Event #2: $210 Beat the Pros, taking home $49,835 as a result.

"Bangshifu" Wins WSOP Super Circuit Online Series Event #1: $100 Super Circuit Kick-Off ($147,013)

China's "Bangshifu" emerged as the winner of the first WSOP Circuit event on the calendar, and what an event it was as Event #1: $100 Super Circuit Kick-Off, $1M GTD registered a whopping 18,733 total entries across all Day 1s, putting the prize pool at $1,723,436.

"Bangshifu" had to wade through 2,939 Day 2 runners to ultimately pocket $147,013 and a WSOP Circuit ring.

Almost as soon as play got three-handed, a deal was struck. As the big stack, "Bangshifu" secured the biggest slice of the prize pool with nearly $150K. Runner-up Rodrigo "GhostBusters" Teixeira received $123,686, while third-place finisher "ssssssTOEOEOEN" saw $129,792 being added to their GGPoker account.

Even though they were still playing for a WSOP Circuit Ring, it didn't take long for "Bangshifu" to eliminate both remaining players to take the first prize and the hardware.

"PHJ10" Wins WSOP Super Circuit Online Series Event #2: $210 Beat the Pros ($49,835)

"PHJ10" added a WSOP Circuit ring to his collection by defeating Hong Kong's "beos" to win the WSOP Super Circuit Online Event #2: $210 Beat the Pros for $49,835. The bounties made all the difference between what was banked between the players in the top two spots as "beos" collected an almost equal $23,241 in prize money but a much smaller $6,558 in bounties to bring their total haul to $29,799.

German poker superstar Rainer Kempe also finished on the podium with a third-place performance worth $20,725 including bounties, while a pair of Americans in Tyler "TheRayGuy" Cornell (eighth - $4,991) and Tsz "Eh8Ay" Shing (ninth - $5,102) were flying flags of neighboring countries at GGPoker and were the first two players eliminated at the final table.

The event itself more than met its expectations with 2,879 entries generating a $575,800 prize pool to small the $500,000 guarantee.
