Benjamin Rolle enjoyed another profitable Sunday poker tournament session courtesy of being the last player standing in the $5,250 Bounty Hunters Super High Rollers event at GGPoker. Rolle picked up a cool $76,24 for his victory and is set to add yet more prize money to his lifetime winnings because he also made it through to Day 2 of the $10 million guaranteed Sunday Million 16th Anniversary Edition.
Rolle was one of 42 entrants in an extremely star-studded if compact field. Half of the $210,000 prize pool went into the main prize pool which the top five finishers share, with the remaining 50% going on the heads of each player.
Dozens of elite players busted with nothing to show for their efforts, including Rainer Kempe, Niklas Astedt, Patrick Leonard, and Super MILLION$ regular “Pandoara-box.”
Dimitar Danchev finished fourth for $24,375
Artur Martirosian, “MorganaPKR” and Simon Mattsson all reached the final table but only had some bounty payments to show for their efforts.
Joao Vieira walked away with $13,672, with bounties included, after his demise in fifth place. Fourth place and $24,375 went to the former PCA Main Event champion Dimitar Danchev before the elimination of Jakob “lechayim” Miegel, worth $26,924, sent the tournament into the heads-up stage.
Here, Rolle locked horns with Sung Joo “ArtePokerTV” Hyun, a player who has been in hot form for the past 18 months. However, Hyun could not quite get the job done this time around and made do with a $38,596 consolation prize, leaving Rolle to reel in a $76,724 addition to his bankroll.

Haxton Follows Up Super MILLION$ Victory With a Sunday Super High Roller Chop
Thirty-five players bought into this weekend’s Sunday Super High Roller, a compact field due to the tournament commanding a $25,500 buy-in. Those entrants created an $875,000 prize pool shared by the top five finishers.
Spare a though for Brazilian sensation Yuri Dzivielevski who finished in sixth place and burst the money bubble. Dzivielevski was one place away from seeing his $25,500 score swell to $90,716.
That sum went to Artur Martirosian, with Adrian Mateos securing a $12,972 score when he dusted off his stack in fourth-place. Serial rebuyer Lev “LevMeAlone” Gottlieb busted in third for $161,318, leaving Isaac Haxton and Daniel Dvoress heads-up.
Haxton, fresh from winning the Super MILLION$ last week for the third time and banking $339,445, got his hands on another $257,818 from this event. Dvoress officially finished in second-place, and netted a $244,173 prize.
