Ship it to Michael Addamo once again. The Aussie pro, playing from the UK, took down a Super High Roller for seven figures. No big deal, right? Addamo is currently ranked #3 all-time on the Australian money winner list with over $8.3 million in live tournaments. Only Kahle Burns and Joe Hachem won more cash in tournaments that Addamo.
Addamo kicked off 2020 with a bang. The Aussie binked a high roller at the Aussie Millions at the start of this wild and weird 2020. And nine months later on the virtual tables at partypoker this week, Addamo put on a clinic in the $100K Super High Roller.
Addamo won the branded-event aka the Marathon in Las Vegas at the 2018 WSOP for his first bracelet victory. In the fall of 2018, Addamo won his second bracelet at the WSOP Europe at RozVegas when he took down a €25K High Roller for €849K. In 2019, he took third place in a $50K High Roller and missed out on another bracelet. He still banked $680K for that deep run at the Rio.
It's been a difficult, yet one of the most successful months for partypoker. Mike Sexton passed away and everyone is still mourning the death of poker's greatest ambassador. But on a good note, the WPT Online Championships played out at partypoker, and the company truly crushed it with this series.
If you're not up to date, Phillip Mighall won the WPT Online Championship Main Event for $1.7 million. And last month, Nick Petrangelo took down Event #4 for nearly a half-million bucks.
The $100K Super High Roller attracted 40 runners and only the top six places paid out with most of the money set aside to the champion.
Daniel Dvoress bubbled the money in seventh place. Yes, only the top six paid out. The final table of six included several familiar faces on the SHR circuit... Isaac Haxton, Linus Loeliger, Christoph Vogelsang, Michael Addamo, Charlie Godwin, and Sergi Reixach.
German pro Christoph Vogelsang hit the road in sixth place and secured a min-cash. Austrian pro Linus Loeliger busted in fifth place. Sergi Reixach hit the bricks in fourth place, followed by Charlie Godwin in third.
Godwin banked $620K for third place, not too shabby eh? After he busted in third, that set up a heads-up battle between Michael Addamo and Ike Haxton. They agreed on a money chop and played for the official title.
Haxton earned $1.2 million for a runner-up finish, while Addamo earned nearly $1.3 million for taking down the $100K High Roller.
