Koon and Badziakouski Reel in Huge Sunday Scores

Jason Koon

The Sunday tournaments at GGPoker threw up some huge results yet again, and both Jason Koon and Mikita Badziakouski were among the sit’s biggest winners.

Koon’s victory came in a relatively new addition to GGPoker’s Sunday schedule, the Sunday Million Super HR. This tournament comes with a bankroll-worrying $25,500 buy-in, but taking it down comes with a mid-six-figure score.

Christian Rudolph was this event’s bubble boy, falling in ninth place from a 62-strong field. Rudolph’s demise paved the way for the remaining eight players to scoop some prize money. "bill2021" got their hands on $67,828 when they busted in eighth, before Badziakouski fell in seventh and won $87,383.

Each of the final six players secured a six-figure payout. Andras Nemeth was the first of those six stars to receive a bumper payout, namely $112,576. "Machitos !!" of Cyprus and "Pandora-box" of China saw their tournaments end in fifth and fourth-place for prizes of $145,031 and $186,844, respectively.

There were no more eliminations because the final three playesr struck a deal for the rest of the prize pool, and what a final three they were. Daniel Dvoress officially finished in third for $290,466, Isaac Haxton collected $320,611 for his second-place finish, leaving Koon to bank a $339,257 first-place prize.

Some 679 players bought into the $1,050 Sunday High Rollers Main Event and created a $679,000 prize pool. A certain Badziakouski, fresh from a final table appearance in the $25,500 Sunday Million Super HR, was the last man standing here. His reward? An impressive $124,284.

The nine-handed final table was a star-studded affair, as you would expect from a $1,050 buy-in tournament. Adrian Mateos burst the final table bubble with his tenth-place finish, leaving such luminaries as Claas Segebrecht, Andreas Nasman, Jamil Wakil, and Pascal Hartmann to cash, the latter walking away with $52,409 after falling in fourth-place.

Michel Dattani was the penultimate bust-out, the Maltese star got his hands on $69,889 after his demise in third. Dattani’s exit left "GiannisParios" one-on-one against Badziakouski. The former partypoker man got the job done, and was a worthy recipient of the $124,284 top prize. GiannisParios secured the $93,199 runner-up prize.
