Samuel Vousden enjoyed a profitable Sunday online poker session on November 15. The Finnish high stakes tournament specialist won not one but two massive events. The brace of victories saw Vousden’s lifetime winnings total swell by more than $280,000!

GGPoker is where Vousden completed his remarkable feat. The site is the new home of high buy-in events, especially lately with the High Rollers Week festival taking place. Several massive tournaments have paid out huge scores, including the GGMasters High Rollers event.

Vousden was one of 1,131-players who exchanged $1,050 and created a $1,131,000 prize pool. The top 179 finishers shared this impressive sum.

Chris Klodnicki, Ole Schemion, Antoine Saout, and Scott Margerson were among those who finished in the money places.

Each of the nine players at the final table guaranteed themselves $13,108. Pavlo Veksler bagged this amount when he fell in ninth-place. $18,230 and eighth-place went to “CYGGsoin” before “FiestaPagana” crashed out and collected $25,355.

“DJdave_en” and “YoungBloods” busted, meaning Vousden was only three eliminations away from glory. Those recently eliminated players scooped $35,264 and $49,045 respectively.

Fourth place and $68,212 went to Serbian pro “BBRS999”. “DFdS123” joined him on the rail with $94,870 in two, the reward for third place.

Heads-up pitted Vousden against Israel’s “Muhahaha” in a mouth-watering clash. Almost $62,000 was the difference in the payouts, yet no deal was struck. This meant Vousden got his hands on a cool $183,511 when he defeated his final opponent. Second place weighed in at $131,945.

Things were going well for Vousden in the High Rollers Blade Prime tournament while he was marching on to victory in the GGMasters. This event commands a $5,250 buy-in, a sum 64 players paid.

Anatoly Filatov ($27,096) and Elio Fox ($35,815) ran out of steam before Darren Elias ($47,340) crashed out. Elias holds the record for the most WPT Main Event title won; he’s won four.

David Peters and Vousden locked horns in a one-on-one battle for the title. Either player would become a worthy champion but only one man could become one. Vousden was that man, this latest victory weighing in at $99,431. Peters banked $62,574 for his runner-up finish.
