Special WSOP Spring Circuit versions of GGPoker’s major events were held. At the GGMasters High Roller, where the country was hoping to win another championship, several unfortunate unlucky beats occurred during the decision of the millionaire freezeout. Bruno Jardim finished in eighth position, but not before he had amassed $24,665. In turn, Daniel Yamaki bowed out of the seven-handed showdown, pocketing $32,891.
Both Brazilians qualified for the final in the last two spots. Distance from CL “Bashka340” did not put them in a hopeless situation.
Bruno sent “MR1SHNARK” home early in the heads-up. The Team’s pro won a coin flip with AJ versus 22 by finding two Js on the board.
When “Bashka340” four-bet shoved, Bruno called with a flush. The Russian, with A10, made a straight flush on a board of A10, Q4, and 5 to eliminate his opponents.
The fall was so rapid that Daniel was stunned and unable to respond. In his last act, he pretended to go all-in before really folding and paying “Bashka340’s” 3-bet. With the flop of 2KA and the turn of 8, the Suits Team grinder was in the hole against his opponent’s Q8. Nevertheless, the river Q delivered one of his opponent’s six outs.
The $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool was exceeded by the $1,396,000 collected from the 1,396 participants who each paid $1,050 to enter the GGMasters High Roller.
