GGPoker Crowns Its First Ring Winners
The dust from GGPoker’s dazzling $150 million GG Spring Festival has barely settled and another nine-figure extravaganza has kicked off to keep the action going. Accompanied by an impressive $100 million in guarantees, 20 WSOP ring events are up for grabs in the WSOP Super Circuit online series running throughout the month of May.
Over this past weekend, three players were able to capture the coveted prize. China’s “Bangshifu” emerged as the biggest overall winner, topping a whopping 18,733-player field to turn a buy-in of just $100 into a massive payday of $147,013 in the first event. Other newly crowned champions included Mario Mosboeck from Austria and Mexico’s PHJ10.
Mosboeck won an amazing $129,700 in the third event after striking a deal with Csaba “PumpedGabo” Szasz. PHJ10, on the other hand, remained unphased by the big names in the second event and took home an impressive $49,835.
Bangshifu emerged as the winner from a pool of 18,733 players. The sheer number of players elevated the $100 Super Circuit Kick-Off event’s prize to $1,723,436. The player had to wade through 2,939 runners from the second day of the event to walk away with his prize money and a WSOP Circuit ring.
Almost as soon as play became three-handed, a deal was struck. Bangshifu secured the biggest slice of the prize pool with almost $150,000. Runners-up Rodrigo “GhostBusters” Teixeira and “ssssssTOEOEOEN” each received $123,686 and $129,792 respectively.
PHJ10 was able to add a WSOP Circuit ring to his collection when he defeated Hong Kong’s “beos”. The second event’s bounties made all the difference between what was banked between the players in the top two spots. “beos” collected an almost equal $23,241 in prize money but a much smaller $6,558 in bounties. This brought their total haul to $29,799.
Mosboeck Takes The Third Event
Austria’s Moesboeck secured another big win, this time for his very first WSOP Circuit ring after defeating a field of 3,063 entries. This win was worth $129,700 thanks to a heads-up deal with Csaba “PumpedGabo” Szasz, who collected an even bigger prize of $130,557. All of this was thanks to him holding the chip advantage when the deal was initiated.
Mosboeck has been a well-known Poker player for many years. Recently, he has joined forces with GGPoker Ambassador Fedor Holz, as well as Matthias Eibinger. They all serve as representatives for Pokercode, a Poker training site.
