After bagging the Day 1b chip lead in the WPT World Online Championship Main Event, it seems like Ole Schemion wasn't going to wait around for Day 2, as he took down Event #12: $25K Super High Roller Championship for $388,708.

He defeated Jason Koon heads-up, topping a field of 48 players that generated a prize pool of $1.2 million. The star-studded final table also featured the likes of Artur Martirosian, Justin Bonomo and Vyacheslav Buldygin.

Event Recap

After Sam Greenwood was eliminated on the bubble, Eelis Pärssinen was the first player eliminated in the money in ninth place. Sami Kelopuro soon followed, eliminated by Justin Bonomo, as Jason Koon led the final seven players in the Super High Roller Championship.

Having lost a flip to Bonomo, Pablo Brito Silva was sent to the rail in seventh place by Koon who continued to dominate final table proceedings. Artur Martirosian had started the final table second in chips, but soon fell against Koon who flopped a full house to eliminate Martirosian.

Another elimination soon followed for the former partypoker Ambassador, with Vyacheslav Buldygin losing a flip with pocket eights to bust against Koon who had now eliminated five of the last six players.

However, just as it seemed like it was Koon's tournament to lose, momentum quickly shifted in the favour of Ole Schemion after doubling through Koon with kings against jacks.

Schemion then eliminated Adria Diaz Dalmau in fourth place and Bonomo in third place to reach heads-up.

Heads-Up Play

Both players remaining had their eyes firmly set on the WPT Super High Roller Championship title and the $388,708 prize money that came with it

The final hand came when Jason Koon limped {k-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} and called Schemion's raise with {a-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} to 160,000. The flop {9-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} gave both players flush draw and Koon called Schemion's check-raise. The turn {7-Diamonds} completed both players flushes and Koon called a bet from Schemion. The river was the {4-Spades} and the rest of the chips went in, with Schemion coming out on top.
