The Sunday tournaments at GGPoker threw up some huge results yet again, and both Jason Koon and Mikita Badziakouski were among the sit’s biggest winners.
Koon’s victory came in a relatively new addition to GGPoker’s Sunday schedule, the Sunday Million Super HR. This tournament comes with a bankroll-worrying $25,500 buy-in, but taking it down comes with a mid-six-figure score.
Christian Rudolph was this event’s bubble boy, falling in ninth place from a 62-strong field. Rudolph’s demise paved the way for the remaining eight players to scoop some prize money. “bill2021” got their hands on $67,828 when they busted in eighth, before Badziakouski fell in seventh and won $87,383.
Each of the final six players secured a six-figure payout. Andras Nemeth was the first of those six stars to receive a bumper payout, namely $112,576. “Machitos !!” of Cyprus and “Pandora-box” of China saw their tournaments end in fifth and fourth-place for prizes of $145,031 and $186,844, respectively.
There were no more eliminations because the final three playesr struck a deal for the rest of the prize pool, and what a final three they were. Daniel Dvoress officially finished in third for $290,466, Isaac Haxton collected $320,611 for his second-place finish, leaving Koon to bank a $339,257 first-place prize.

Badziakouski Reels in $124,284 Score in the Sunday High Roller Masters
Some 679 players bought into the $1,050 Sunday High Rollers Main Event and created a $679,000 prize pool. A certain Badziakouski, fresh from a final table appearance in the $25,500 Sunday Million Super HR, was the last man standing here. His reward? An impressive $124,284.
The nine-handed final table was a star-studded affair, as you would expect from a $1,050 buy-in tournament. Adrian Mateos burst the final table bubble with his tenth-place finish, leaving such luminaries as Claas Segebrecht, Andreas Nasman, Jamil Wakil, and Pascal Hartmann to cash, the latter walking away with $52,409 after falling in fourth-place.
Michel Dattani was the penultimate bust-out, the Maltese star got his hands on $69,889 after his demise in third. Dattani’s exit left “GiannisParios” one-on-one against Badziakouski. The former partypoker man got the job done, and was a worthy recipient of the $124,284 top prize. GiannisParios secured the $93,199 runner-up prize.
