The World Series of Poker Super Series Online is going from strength to strength. Two more champions have been crowned in events #4 and #5 with event #6 coming later today.


Event #4 - Monster Stack $500K GTD

The Monster Stack event had players itching to get started with a $500k guarantee, so much that we saw a whopping 5,155 entrants building a $948,520 prize pool.

274AS from Luxembourg was the last man standing, defeating a friend of the Natural8 site Brazil’s Fedor Kruse. Kruse is well-known on the high stakes cash tables but came up just short in this tournament.

274AS  collected a nice $134,909 for his victory at a final table that amazingly showcased nine different nationalities for nine seats.

In total 863 players got paid including the new Natural8 brand ambassador Thai Ha, making his tournament debut on the site.


Event #5 - Big $500 $2 Million GTD

The Big $500 was another well-supported event. Running over two days, 7,295 entrants battled down to 1,084 who returned for the final day’s action to fight for the guarantee smashing $3,465,125 prize pool.

There wasn’t so much of a fully international feel in this tournament with no less than four Brazilians dominating the final table action.

With three compatriots left to duel for the top three spots they decided to make a deal. 

Rodrigo “BlaireauEnColere” Seiji was the short stack and naturally took the smallest portion, but that didn’t stop him from being the man who collected the title and the much sought after WSOP Circuit ring.

The $330,410.70 prize was also barely less than Vinicius “pfckb” Steves’$369,841.84 who finished in second after being the chip leader when the deal was made.

Pedro “Neto 10” Padilha was third and still no doubt happy with his $362,694.91 pay day.

Padhila is a regular on Natural8 and was joined at the table by no less than three other site buddies.

Lester "mon$terDad" Edoc busted out in 4th place for $159,979.27, “Goldig” took home $110,010.44 for 5th place, and “Dosobyc” from Lithuania would still have been delighted to pick up $35,772.56 for his 8th place finish.

All three players have been crushing it so far in the Asian Poker Tour that is running in tandem with the WSOP Super Circuit Online on Natural8.

There were also a couple of well-known faces from the live poker world getting in on the action. France’ s Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier finished in 67th place, and Germany’s Fedor Holz in 309th.

Holz has been a busy boy, and this last week he picked up his third $5,000 high roller tournament victory after besting a field of 66 players for $97,412.04.


Event #6 - $210 Deepstack Bounty Hunters $500K GTD

The Deepstack Bounty Hunters starts today and comes with a $210 buy-in.

The buy-in is split evenly between the prizepool and the bounty pool. A progressive bounty of at least $50 will be credited every time you eliminate a player.

Can anybody knock Justin “PetitFoxx” Zhu off the top spot of the ring event leaderboard before the action ends on May 31st.
