Savenkov’s heads-up opponent, 2020 WSOP Online International Main Event finalist Stoyan Obreshkov, also collected a six-figure prize. Obreshkov padded his bankroll with $106,023 after falling a the final hurdle.

Everyone else who reached the final table walked away with between $14,138 and $79,506 for their efforts. “JeeTy,” Martin “marlin5555” Raus, and Gleb Tremzin were the first players eliminated.
