The biggest win of the festival so far came in Event #05: $25,500 Super High Roller which saw a field of 44 players generate a prize pool of $1.1 million.

The final table of six were all guaranteed $59,4161, with Ami Barer bubbling in seventh place. Other players who were eliminated short of the money included Pascal Lefrancois, Laszlo Bujtas, Viktor Blom and Andras Nemeth.

In the end it was Eelis Parssinen who emerged triumphant, defeating Gavin Corhane heads-up to secure $440,000.

Doubles for Kyllonen and Sonnert

Jens Kyllonen

Meanwhile, there were two victories apiece for both Jens Kyllonen and Bengt Sonnert. Kyllonen did his double in two $10,300 events, first tasting victory in the third event of the Series, defeating Jonathan Depa heads-up for $220,000, before adding another $200,000 later in the week.

In his second victory, he topped a Finnish one-two-three ahead of Eelis Parssinen and Aku Joentausta. There was also a spot at the final table for partypoker Sponsored Pro Roberto Romanello.
