Sebastian “p0cket00” Sikorski and Oleksandr Krasnov Chop The Grand
The Grand is the biggest weekly buy-in and guarantee at partypoker. Consequently it creates one of the toughest fields in the online poker tournament world.
Last night 161 of the world’s best tournament players signed up and battled for the prestigious title. Pablo “pabritz” Brito Silva and Pedro Marques both made it into the money, but busted just shy of the final table.
Still there were several notables among the finalists such as online superstar Artem “veeea” Vezhenkov, Aliaksei “ale6ka” Boika and Christoph Vogelsang, who finished in a strong 3rd place for $15,049.
Once Vogelsang busted the two remaining players “p0cket00” and Oleksandr Krasnov quickly made a deal and agreed to an even chop.
