Event #38: $10,300 WPT High Roller, $1m GTD

Will Simon Mattsson Win Back-To-Back WPT Online Series High Rollers?

Simon Mattsson

A total of 101 players entered the WPT Online Series Event #23: $10,300 High Roller to generate a $1,010,000 prize pool, and after just under six hours of play on partypoker, only 17 players remain in with a shot of the title.

Leading the way is Sweden's Simon Mattsson with Alex Foxen close behind.

Mattsson finds himself in familiar territory as last week he was the Day 1 chip leader with 17 remaining in Event #23: $10,300 WPT High Roller. He went on to win that event for $249,741 and time will tell if he can do the same this week.

partypoker Ambassador Kristen Bicknell also advanced and will start Day 2 in 11th place.

partypoker Ambassador Update

While Bicknell advanced, the same didn't hold true for the rest of the partypoker Ambassadors that battled it out on Day 1 with Isaac Haxton, Mikita Badziakouski, Joni Jouhkimainen, and Joao Simao all swinging and missing on the opening day.

The remaining players will return at 20:05 (BST) on Monday, May 31, 2021, and play down to a winner.
