Ukrainian Roman Romanovsky wins $26 250 in The Whale at 888poker
Ukrainian professional Roman Romanovsky continues his charity marathon, as a result of which he is going to donate $1 million to charity. Another replenishment of the total profit - the top-1 in the most expensive Major of last Sunday at 888poker - The $50,000 Whale with a buy-in of $1050.
To win a clear first place, Roman had to bypass fifty opponents, who made 24 reentries. As a result, the guarantee was beaten one and a half times, and Romanovsky got $26 250. For a Ukrainian, this is the second major title for 888poker over the past few months - in September Roma won the XL Eclipse Main Event with $187k. Once again, the profit of the charity marathon was replenished through a drift in the "eights".
Another title for our community was won by the Belarusian player "Happynose". He tied for 888poker's The Sunday Mega Deep with 2017 World Online Poker Champion Steven van Zadelhoff. After the carve-up, the Belarusian beat the German, finding $17 607 at the box office for the first place. In the same tournament the Russian player "SEWart777" took the 5th place, the prize money was $5250.
The double for Belarus was designed by "wellyxxxx" in The $20k Turbo Mega Deep PKO. Having scored more in knockouts than it was necessary for the top-1, the winner received $2861 + $3087. Thus, two titles of the main Sunday tournaments at 888poker went to Belarusian players.
In one more PKO tournament, five of our players ended up following the final. The highest was Anton "YSoSerious7" Yakub - only one out was not enough for him for the first place. Anton's prize was $2084 + $645. Right after Yakuba, the Belarusian “Zarzoor912” ($1580 + $1240) and the Russians “Kaktus26rus” ($1176 + $156), “olegrusanov” ($807 + $243) are located. On the 7th line finished the tournament "luckypunch75" from Ukraine ($538 + $200). Read more Roman Romanovsky's blog
