Felipe Ketzer

Brazil’s Felipe “ketzerfelipe” Ketzer has plenty of reasons to spend Monday celebrating after he took down the $5,200 Titans Event online at PokerStars for a cool $82,009. Ketzer’s prize would have been even larger had he not struck a heads-up deal with his fellow countryman Rodrigo “SELOUAN1991” Selouan.

Sixty-eight players bought into the Titans Event this week, and created a $340,000 prize pool. Such a prize pool meant all nine finalists more than doubled their investment. Ole “wizowizo” Schemion was the first to fall before Team PokerStars Pro Sam “SamSquid” Grafton bowed out in eighth.

Oliver “Sk2ll_m0dR” Weis and David “MissOracle” Yan fell by the wayside, and left only five players in the hunt for the title. Greek grinder “dimiangelako” busted in fifth, with “Grozzorg” of Austria seeing their tournament end in a fourth-place finish. Heads-up was set when Mexico-base Russian “hello_totti” ran out of steam.

The Brazilian duo of Ketzer and Selouan agreed upon a deal that ultimately saw Selouan finish second for $78,495 and Ketzer clinch the title, which came with $82,009 reasons to be delighted with his performance.

Nitsche Nicks the $1,050 Sunday Cooldown Top Honors

Dominik Nitsche
Dominik Nitsche

Dominik “Bounatirou” Nitsche overcame a tough field to become the $1,050 Sunday Cooldown champion this week. A compact yet stellar field of 47 entrants fought tooth and nail to be the last player standing.

Only seven of the finalists won some prize money from the main prize pool. Andrey “Anjeyyy” Novak being the first of those seven to find themselves with no betting tokens in front of them.

“Gogac sniper” was shot down, “Ebaaa11” was relieved of their stack, then Leon “RUMUKULUS” Sturm saw his participation ended earlier than he would have like, leaving a trio of players in contention to become the tournament’s champion.

Kazakhstan’s “Hofr” was sent packing in third, leaving two Goliath’s of the poker world head-to-head. Nitsche defeated Preben “prebz” Stokkan heads-up and received $16,668 in total, with Stokkan heading into the night with a $9,668 consolation prize.

“zavor4ik” Warms Up For The Festival Online Main Event With High Roller Victory

The Festival Online

The Festival Online Main Event kicks off at 888poker from April 6, and Austrian “zavor4ik” warmed up for it in style by triumphing in the $40,000 guaranteed Sunday High Roller. Some 81 players bought in for $525, and each of the nine finalists more than doubled their money.

“Ydavidy77” and “matokr” were the first players to be eliminated from the final table. “QdEqTeCalaz” joined those busted players in the role of a spectator before the exits of “wacko90” and 888poker regular “xFink_Ploydx” left four players contesting the tournament.

Ireland’s “9salute46” and “ukrLaci” of Ukraine fell in the latter stages, before zavor4ik defeated “Sickslick” in the one-on-one battle, and reeled in the tournament’s only five-figure prize, namely $11,340.

Lam Denies Odeen in the PartyPoker Grand


The $1,050 Grand is PartyPoker‘s largest buy-in tournament of the week, and this latest edition saw 70 players enter. $75,000 was up for grabs, but British star Tom Hall narrowly missed out on some prize money because he fell in 14th place and popped the money bubble.

$2,890 was the least anyone at the final table could win, and that sum went to Boris Angelov of Bulgaria. Anton Blondal, Euan Baxter, and Jonathan Proudfoot were eliminated, before a trio of Malta-based grinders made their way to the exits. Alberto Cigliano was the first, followed by Alan Goasdoue, and finally four-time WSOP bracelet winner Michael Gathy.

Gathy’s untimely demise left Jason lam heads-up against Jerry Odeen, and it was Lam that came out of that particular battle unscathed. Lam reeled in $18,816, resigning Odeen to the $12,344 consolation prize.

RL-t1Nd3R-> Shines in the Super $55

It may have only cost $55 to enter, but the PartyPoker Super $55 paid out an impressive $63,000, some $3,000 more than the advertised $60,000 guarantee. That chunky prize pool was created by 1,260 players buying in, and it was “RL-t1Nd3R->” that outlasted them all.

RL-t1Nd3R-> saw their $55 investment swell to $6,970 and the title of champion. That prize was made up from $3,651 from the main prize pool and $3,319 worth of bounties, including the price on their head, as happens in PKO tournaments.

“VIKINGBoss” was the runner-up, and although disappointed not to get a win under their belts, the $5,547 they collected for their second-place finish will go some way to numbing the pain of defeat.
