First Deposit Bonus 720x90 1

It is getting down to the wire at the WSOP Super Circuit Online Series with Day 26 now in the books. The massive online festival got underway on May 3rd at GG Network Natural8. Since then, 14 of the iconic 18 circuit gold rings have been claimed and the nine figure $100 million guarantee breached.

The chase for the last four rings is ongoing with registration and daily Day 1 heats leading up to the events. The final day to take part is on May 31st. The MAIN EVENT $5M GTD was cracked two days ago and is now at $ 5.6M and rising.

To date, the grand festival has paid out $ 106.1 million across 455 events. It is, without challenge, the richest event in online history. Last night, $ 3.4 million was paid out across 18 side games. Several players scored six figure payouts with Artur Martirosian and Joao Vieira pocketing the single largest at respective $ 10K High Roller events. Other big winners included AndyAtTheBike, Jacob Schindler, and Florencio Campomanes “tonkatsu&wagyu”.

We’ve got those stories, results, and ring event updates for your reading pleasure.

Day 26 results

As usual, the High Roller events kept the big guns very busy. The costliest were the two $ 10K High Roller events. Each one amassed a juicy pot well over half a million which in turn paid handsomely to the winners.

Florencio Campomanes “tonkatsu&wagyu” wins the $1K

Filipino pro Florencio Campomanes “tonkatsu&wagyu” claimed his first series win at a WSOPC Series: $1K event, rising above a 105 entry field. This win comes days after finishing 6th at the Monster Stack ring event that earned him $ 20.1K. To seize victory, Campomanes exchanged blows with Jesus Shuttlesworth at heads up to see the lead bounce back and forth. After Campomanes won the hand below, it created a wider gap between them, and from there, he shipped it. The final hand was Campomanes A-6 off suit over Shuttlesworth’s K-4 off suit that missed.
