There may not have been many better days at a poker table in the career of Conor Beresford than the one that he enjoyed earlier this week. Many believed that the star was out of form, but he answered any doubts surrounding the form that he is currently in with not one, but two massive victories in High Stakes games at GGPoker. It was a famous double for the star, which ensured that the Brit picked up returns of $157,086 from the two events that were played.
Famous Double For Beresford
The Brit would have come into this week with many questions surrounding his form, but they have been answered empathically with two excellent wins. It was a famous double, with his biggest victory coming in the Bounty Hunters Sunday HR. It was a very competitive event, with 58 players involved. The event was a star-studded affair, with only the top seven on the leaderboard able to walk away with returns from the GGPoker event.
Rui Ferreira was the lowest place finisher to walk away with some returns, as the Brazilian finished in seventh for a top prize purse of $18,117. Jason Koon, Pedro Garagnani, David Coleman and Driekus888 also picked up returns. Beresford was pushed towards the finishing line of the event by Artur Martiosian, who eventually needed to settle for a place in second. The legendary Russian still won returns of $55,553 for his performance in the event. However, there was no stopping Beresford as the considerable victory saw him pick up returns of $90,000, which included $59,375 in bounties.
Beresford’s Second Victory
The second victory that Beresford picked up came in the Crazy Eights HR, as he held off a talented field of players that were all gunning for a piece of the prize pot. However, once again, the Brit reigned supreme in the event, as he won prize money of just under $67,000. Dennys Ramos was the player to push the Brit the closest, as the Brazilian eventually finished in second place in the standings. Ramos still won returns of just over $50,000 for his performance in the event. Unlike the prior mentioned event, players that finished on the final table all got their piece of the prize fund in the GGPoker event. Morgota was knocked out at the final table first, but still won $6,681 for his decent showing in the Crazy Eights High Roller.
Beresford’s compatriot Jonathan Proudfoot finished eighth overall, while Canadian duo Daniel Dvoress and Pen15 finished in seventh and sixth, respectively. Another Brazilian finished in fifth, as Bruno Volkmann won $21,129. The third and final Brazilian player on the final table was Ramos, who finished in second place overall. There were also two Austrian players involved in a competitive final table. Claus Thaler finished in fourth place in the standings, while Alex Theologis finished just a place better off in third. Theologis won returns of $37,573 for his showing in the event.
