Ole Schemion Defeats Jason Koon Heads-Up to Win WPT World Online Championship Super High Roller
After bagging the Day 1b chip lead in the WPT World Online Championship Main Event, it seems like Ole Schemion wasn’t going to wait around for Day 2, as he took down Event #12: $25K Super High Roller Championship for $388,708.
He defeated Jason Koon heads-up, topping a field of 48 players that generated a prize pool of $1.2 million. The star-studded final table also featured the likes of Artur Martirosian, Justin Bonomo and Vyacheslav Buldygin.

|7||Pablo Brito Silva||Brazil||$57,628|
After Sam Greenwood was eliminated on the bubble, Eelis Pärssinen was the first player eliminated in the money in ninth place. Sami Kelopuro soon followed, eliminated by Justin Bonomo, as Jason Koon led the final seven players in the Super High Roller Championship.
Having lost a flip to Bonomo, Pablo Brito Silva was sent to the rail in seventh place by Koon who continued to dominate final table proceedings. Artur Martirosian had started the final table second in chips, but soon fell against Koon who flopped a full house to eliminate Martirosian.
Another elimination soon followed for the former partypoker Ambassador, with Vyacheslav Buldygin losing a flip with pocket eights to bust against Koon who had now eliminated five of the last six players.
However, just as it seemed like it was Koon’s tournament to lose, momentum quickly shifted in the favour of Ole Schemion after doubling through Koon with kings against jacks.
Schemion then eliminated Adria Diaz Dalmau in fourth place and Bonomo in third place to reach heads-up.
Both players remaining had their eyes firmly set on the WPT Super High Roller Championship title and the $388,708 prize money that came with it
Jonathan Proudfoot steam-rolled the WPT World Online Championship High Roller final table, eliminating four players en-route to victory, winning $268,960.

Final Table Recap
Coming into the final table it was Jonathan van Fleet who led the final seven, just ahead of Jonathan Proudfoot. However, Proudfoot would make quads to send Leon Sturm to the rail in seventh place and take over the chip lead.
Thomas Boivin fell next at the hands of another big stack, with Andras Nemeth’s pocket eights holding against Boivin’s queen-jack. The remaining five players would battle back and forth, before two big stacks butted heads resulting in a double for Proudfoot. Nemeth moved all in with ace-king Proudfoot called with queens to double into the chip lead.
Nemeth was left short and was eliminated shortly thereafter. Timo Kamphues would double back into contention, but both he and Christian Rudolph were adrift of Proudfoot at the head of the pack.
Meanwhile, Van Fleet had failed to pick up any traction at the final table and was felled by Proudfoot, giving him a commanding chip lead three handed.
Proudfoot would also eliminate Kamphues in third place to take an even larger chip lead into heads-up. Kamphues defended king-jack in the big blind after Proudfoot opened ten-nine. The king-jack-five gave Kamphues two pair, and he called the continuation bet from his opponent. The turn queen completed Proudfoot’s straight, with the money going in on the river to send Kamphues to the rail.
Heads-up lasted only ten minutes before Rudolph shoved ace-queen into the pocket kings of Proudfoot, sealing victory for the British player.
