The single most valuable day of the WSOP Super Circuit Online Series was always going to be an epic affair, but to say it didn’t disappoint would be an understatement; not only was it an truly historic day for the online poker community, but for GGPoker, too:

WSOPC Ring Event #8: HR Championship $10M GTD
505 players stumped up the $25,000 buy-in for event #8, generating a gargantuan $12.3M prize pool and meaning the top 3 players were each guaranteed a $1,000,000 payday. After an epic 15 hours of high stakes tournament action, we were down to our final two players: ‘800-522-4700‘ and ‘Patrick “Babu$hka” Leonard’ of the UK.
800-522-4700 would boss the Heads Up action, and despite a spirited and skilful display from ‘Patrick “Babu$hka” Leonard‘ he ultimately ran his A4 into pocket Kings and, with no help from the board, ‘800-522-4700’ was our new WSOPC High Roller Champion and just under $2.2M richer – Good Game!

Out of the 4,104 players who started Day 1, ‘miya11‘ was the player left holding all the chips and took away a shiny WSOPC Gold Ring and a huge $278,361 first-place prize.

WSOPC Ring Event #10: PLO HR Championship $1M GTD
High stakes Pot Limit was the order of the day in event #10 and the small matter of the $2.2M prize pool – more than double the guaranteed $1M.
It took eight hours of play to whittle down the the 234 players down to one, with Canada’s ‘ChilaxChuck’ emerging victorious after getting it all in on the flop with a flush draw and inside straight draw versus the straight and lower flush draw BailaMorena. A seven of diamonds on the river sealed BailaMorena’s fate and ChilaxChuck was our new PLO High Roller Champ and the proud new owner of a WSOPC Gold Ring – Good Game.
