A big weekend in online poker saw huge poker professionals bag big wins in major online events, as Fedor Holz, Ole Schemion and Artur Martirosyan continued strong lockdown periods with more poker profit.
Fedor Holz won the Summer Series High Roller for $156,377 as the $5,200-entry event saw 149 entries rack up a prizepool of $745,000. With eight players reaching the final table, another man who is in great form was first to depart the action, as Russian player Artur Martirosian cashed for $26,055 and he was followed out of the tournament by another well-known player who has amassed plenty of profts over the last three months in Conor Beresford.
Gediminas Uselis from Lithuania was next to go, and others who busted along the way featured Laszlo Bujtas who won $72,547 for finishing in 4th place. It was Joao Vieira who would battle with Fedor Holz heads-up, but the German closed it out to claim the top prize.
