Talal Shakerchi wins the Supersonic and finishes 3rd in the Titans Events
The Sunday Supersonic is a poker player favourite in the Sunday Grind as it takes less than two hours from start to finish.
This time 47 players registered for the Hyper Turbo and smashed the $35,000 guarantee by more than 50%! $47,745.42 was in the prize pool with 20K up top.
Only five places were paid and tournament legends Michael “imluckbox” Addamo, bencb789 and Phillipe “takechip” D’Auteuil all busted before the bubble.
Biggest name among the Final Five was Talal “raidalot” Shakerchi and he managed to take down this prestigious event by defeating “gantorius” from Austria heads-up.
And Talal was far from being done, since he also had a deep run in the Titans Event, PokerStars flagship and most expensive weekly tournament.
54 elite players had signed up for it and there was $300,000 in the prize pool with a staggering $106,461.55 up top.
There were only six paid places and the Titans Event field consists of the best poker tournament players on the planet.
Big names, who made the money, were Justin “ZeeJustin” Bonomo, Thomas “WushuTM” Mühlöcker, Talal “raidalot” Shakerchi and Eelis “EEE27” Parsinnen.
Shakerchi came very close to his second major title of the night, but then busted in 3rd place for $49,438.41. Great performance by the businessman!
The second big story was that Eelis Parsinnen had the chance to win the Titans Event back-to-back after last week’s victory, where he banked a whopping $109K.
This time Parsinnen had to settle for second place, since “SerVlaMin” proved to be too much to overcome heads-up.
The English online reg took home $105,461.55, while Eelis Parsinnen added $72,207 to his ever-growing bankroll.
