Former WPT Champ Christopher Frank Reels in $323K GGOC Score
Christopher Frank saw a enormous $323,252 land in his GGPoker account right after he became the champion of the $10,300 Thursday Thriller Bounty event. Former Globe Poker Tour Vienna champion Frank saw his $101,280 prize topped up by $221,972 from the bounty prize pool soon after he came out on prime of a 135-robust field.
Frank’s prize equated for practically a quarter of the $1,350,000 prize pool, and he reeled the prize in following defeating Brazil’s “morgata” heads-up. Ahead of the heads-up battle, Frank had to navigate his way by way of some very hard opponents.
Mikalai Vaskaboinikau was the initial finalists who busted. “Spirou06,” Chunlei Zhou, Nike Mihao, and Pedro Padilha fell by the wayside, leaving only 4 players in the hunt for the title.
Those 4 became three when Dimitar Danchev ran out of steam. Danchev’s reward was a $66,850 payout from the principal prize pool plus an incredible $83,125 worth of bounties. Only the eventual champion won locked in more bounty payments, and nobody else won far more than $30,625!
David Miscikowski saw his tournament finish in third spot for a combined prize worth $97,881. This left Frank heads-up against morgata, and Frank brushed aside his final opponent to bag a monster-sized prize.

Yurasov and Martirosian Chop the $10,300 Super Tuesday
It was not only Frank padding his bankroll with a substantial six-figure score since Dmitry Yurasov and Artur Martirosian chopped the $ten,300 Super Tuesday and took home prizes weighing in at $32,459 and $263,367 respectively.
Some 122 players bought in and developed a $1,220,000 prize pool. Such luminaries as Samuel Vousden, Mikalai Vaskaboinikau, Rodrigo Sirichuk, Andrey Pateychuk, and Bruno Volkmann reached the fiercely-fought final table but fell quick of the victory.
Yakov “YaNesterov” Nesterov got his hands on the event’s first six-figure score, namely $121,510. Francisco Benitez fell in third for $160,981, leaving the talented duo of Martirosian and Yurasov heads-up. They struck a deal to lessen the pay jumps, just before Yurasov came from behind to become the tournament’s champion.
