Anton Wigg Bags Himself a Brace of Sunday Titles


Anton “Bomber&Granater” Wigg is considered to be one of the best poker tournament players of his generation. The former EPT Copenhagen champion added to his already glowing reputation by securing two Sunday titles in the online poker world on May 16.

Wigg’s first victory came in the $1,050 Sunday High Roller at PokerStars, a tournament that drew in a crowd of 224 players. All but two of the eight players who navigated their way through the shark-infested waters to reach the final table walked away with a five-figure prize. “ULOSEMFKR!!” and Sam “Str8$$$Homey” Greenwood were those two players.

Dmitry “yurasov1990” Yurasov banked $12,352 for his sixth place finish before “diego efe33” fell in fifth for a $16,258 addition to their bankroll.

Japan’s “Khun Eduan” joined the list of busted players before the final three stars struck a deal for the remaining prize pool. Jans “Graftekkel” Arends banked $36,722, David “MissOracle” Yan collected $38,565, with Wigg walking away with $38,732 and the title of champion.

WhatIfGod Secures Sunday Supersonic Title

Wigg almost won another PokerStars tournament in the shape of the $1,050 Sunday Supersonic. The Austria-based Swede found himself at a star-studded final table that included Pascal “Päffchen” Hartmann, Olli “Erä_Koira” Ikonen, and Ami “UhhMee” Barer.

That trio bowed out, leaving Wigg to battle three-handed with “Ortega.And” and “WhatIfGod.” It was not meant to be for Wigg and he had to make do with the $11,644 third-place prize. WhatIfGod then sent his final opponent to the rail to lock up the $20,838 top prize.

Addamo Takes Down Yet Another High Roller

Michael Addamo shines brightly during High Roller tournaments, and seems to win them with an almost unnatural ability. Addamo won another High Roller event this weekend, the $5,200 WPT High Roller Turbo at partypoker.

Only 54 players entered but the entry list read like a who’s who of the poker world. Nine of those starters received a slice of the $270,000 prize pool, David Szep and David Peters cashing but falling short of the seven-handed final table.

Artur Martirosian and Joakim Andersson were the final table’s first casualties. Team partypoker’s Mikita Badziakouski joined them on the rail before Chris Brewer bowed out in fourth, a finish worth $24,288.

Steve O’Dwyer‘s tournament ended in a third-place finish worth $35,031, which left Alex Foxen and Addamo heads-up in a real clash of the titans. Addamo outfoxed Foxen and secured yet another high roller title, this one coming with a $87,459 prize. Foxen walked away with $53,715.

Amazingly, Addamo is the overwhelming chip leader going into Day 2 of the $10,300 WPT High Roller. He has 1,519,333 chips with Ramiro Petrone in second place courtesy of his 1,062,319 stack. It looks like we could be writing about another Addamo victory soon.
