It was a profitable week in the world of poker for Julian Stuer, who would have been celebrating on Saturday night as he won his second High Rollers event of the week with GGPoker. Stuer wasn’t the only big winner during the course of the weekend, as Nikas Astedt also claimed a win in a huge event, which saw his ever growing reputation continue.
However, it was Stuer that managed to get all the headlines, as he won his second event in seven days, as he ran away with the NLHE High Roller. His success was a huge one, as he took home $264,636 for his stunning performance on Saturday evening.
Stuer Holds Off Talented Field
Stuer was the in-form player going into the event, as he had won an event in the last couple of days before settling down for the competition on Saturday. He looked like a player that was full of confidence throughout the event, as he was able to hold off a field of 93 players to roar to success and take home a huge cash prize. The buy-in for the event was $10,300. Stuer wasn’t the only player to take home returns from the event, as the top 13 players also took home their slice of the pie.
However, one of the players not to walk away from the event with a single cent was Stephen Chidwick. It would have been a disappointing end to the event for the British born player, as he also led the competition for long spells throughout the day. The player to finish in ninth place in the standings was Viacheslav Buldygin, who took home $27,059 for his finish in ninth place in the standings.
Canadian player Daniel Dvoress was the next player to fall in the game, as he finished in eighth place and claimed returns of £31,492. Meanwhile, Spanish player Juan Pardo Dmoninguez was the next player to fall in the game, as the Spaniard was made to settle for a seventh-place finish in the GGPoker event.
Remaining Players On Leaderboard
The highest placed American player in the event was Darren Elias, who finished in a respectable sixth on the leaderboard. The American was able to take home $54,907 for his performance in the event. Russian player Artur Martirosian was the next player on the leaderboard, as he finished in fifth and claimed $72,501.
Ivan Zufic and Joao Vieira finished in fourth and third respectively. Zufic claimed $95,733 for his excellent performance, while Vieira was one of three players to win more than $100,000 from the event. The Portuguese player was rewarded with $126,409 for his excellent performance in the event.
It was Fedor Holz that pushed Stuer the closest in the competition, as the German finished in second place after being beaten in the heads-up challenge. The German player claimed $166,915 for his performance in the event. However, there was no doubt that the event belonged to Stuer, who capped an excellent week with another win on the huge stage.
