Only the nine players that navigated their way to the nine-handed final table secured some of the $355,000 prize pool. Niklas “Lena900” Astedt busted in 11th, while Benjamin “bencb789” Rolle crashed out in tenth and popped the all-important money bubble.

“SerVlaMin” was the first of the nine finalists to fall by the wayside. Ninth place came with $11,067 in prize money. David “MissOracle” Yan ($12,671), fresh from his incredible performances at the 2023 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, finished in eighth, “Phemo” ($16,917) fell in seventh, with Gavin “gavz01” Cochrane ($22,586) seeing his tournament in in sixth place.

Fifth place and $30,155 went to Joao “Naza114” Vieira, Talal “raidalot” Shakerchi ($40,261) joined Vieira on the rail, before Canada’s “Stumpfed” ($53,753) exited stage left, sending the Titans event into the heads-up stage. Here, Muehlocker and Silva struck a deal to lessen the pay jump. Silva held the chip lead, as is evident by the difference in prize money, because Silva banked $85,680 despite busting in second place, with Muehloecker collecting a slightly lesser $81,905 and the title of champion.

“malygan3310” Turns $50 into $40,507 and the 50/50 Series Main Event Title

50/50 Series

The 50/50 Series concluded over the weekend with the $500,000 guaranteed Main Event. Some 11,841 players had bought in before late registration closed, resulting in a $538,173 prize pool.

Such a large prize pool for a $50 buy-in meant nobody at the nine-handed final table took home less than $3,127 for the efforts, with bounties included, while the top four finishers saw five-figure sums land in their PokerStars accounts.

German “otto1956” was the first recipient of a $10,000+ score; they banked $13,570 after falling in fourth. Third place and an impressive $20,694 went to Brazilian “Piquiii” before “malygan3310” of Lithuania defeated Romanian “J.Fullop.74” heads-up for the victory. The runner-up scooped $32,642 but the champion took home a cool $40,507, or 810-times their initial buy-in!
